Redcar v Workington
Thursday evening sees the Redcar Ecco Finishing Bears go up against a strong Workington Comets side as the Bears look to build on their confidence boosting win last time out at Sheffield. The Bears hope to be at full strength as their Danish contingent fly back from a league match in Denmark and Frenchman Dimitre Berge returns from winning another round of the World Long Track Championship.
Also at the meeting tomorrow to mark the 90th anniversary of the Teesside Silver Helmet meeting a set of vintage ‘upright’ engine bikes will compete in the second half races with such famous bikes as the 2 valve Jawa and the British built Weslake taking part. To mark the occasion a set of former riders from past years have been invited to attend and they will be a display of older bikes and equipment for the fans to see. Amongst the guest’s are; Martin Dixon
