Ryan ready for Redcar return!
Redcar racer Ryan Kinsley is sure to receive strong home support after his recent troubles as his Redcar Bears side host Leicester this evening at the Media Prima Arena (19:30 start). The support Kinsley will receive is something that the young up and coming starlet should relish in his quest to score well for his new Championship club. Kinsley is thankful for the support he has received after his recent ordeal.
“Firstly, I want to say thank you to everyone at Redcar and the speedway community for everything they have done and donated for me to be able to finish this year off, I’ve had to borrow stuff for now and can’t thank Dan Broughton enough for driving me to the meetings and lending me items to use, without the help off everyone I wouldn’t be able to ride again.”
“For me it’s a big meeting to be able to ride again after the couple of weeks I’ve had is huge and it means so much to me to be able to race again. I have unfinished business at Redcar and I need to get some points on the board. Leicester is going to be a tough meeting but I’m sure we can come away with the win!”
In a bizarre twist Kinsley’s proposed replacement for last weeks wash out, Greg Blair, now lines up in the opposition no. 6 jacket as guest for Joe Thompson. Both Joe and twin brother Dan miss the fixture as they compete in the British Under-19 Final at Scunthorpe. Lions boss Stewart Dickson has opted to bring in the likeable Scot, whilst running rider replacement for Dan.
Leicester are led by their skipper Kyle Howarth who brings with him some stellar names in the form of Nick Morris, Ryan Douglas and the former Grand Prix star Hans Andersen.
Andersen is set to make his Media Prima Arena debut but as previous first time experienced visitors such as Bjarne Pedersen have shown, this should not pose a problem for such a stellar speedway name.
The Teessiders are back at full strength with the return of Kinsley after compassionate leave was granted due to the theft of his equipment after the Bears last home victory against Kent.
The challenge for the Bears is to come out victorious to keep the pressure on current league leaders Poole as the battle for top spot intensifies. The fixture is sure to be another entertaining battle with real racers on both sides of the pits and the fans should expect another nail biting encounter, something that has become customary at the Media Prima Arena recently!
Speedway fans around the world who cannot attend the match can purchase the meeting on BearsTV for £9.99 here!
