Swales: Let’s go out and fight!
Redcar co-promoter, Jamie Swales has challenged his side to keep their heads up as the Bears round off a marathon weekend by travelling to Sandy Lane to take on Oxford with tapes up at 5:30pm.
Swales, in his 3rd season as co-promoter said, “ Whilst there’s still a slim chance of qualifying, realistically it’s our job to put on a good performance and get some race wins.”
Swales is also keen for his boys to get some race wins ahead of meetings against Glasgow and Scunthorpe next week, “ We have Scunthorpe in the KO Cup and that’s an important competition that we want to win whilst we also have another home match against Glasgow. Ultimately, we need to keep our heads up and go into these 2 meetings as confident as possible.”
With the Bears hamstrung by unavailable riders and injuries, Swales explained his disappointment of having to track 3 guests and rider replacement, “ Getting a guest in is always a massive hindrance as you can very rarely replace your rider with a better rider unless you can get a track specialist in. However, with the restrictions hampering us we are only able to select guests from three teams but we will still be going out to do our best.”
Redcar operate rider replacement at number 2 for Connor Bailey who is racing in the Polish Ekstraliga Final whilst Leon Flint replaces Erik Riss who is on FIM LongTrack of Nations commitments. Additionally, Justin Sedgmen steps into number 5 to replace Charles Wright whilst Redcar regular Luke Harrison once again deputises for Jake Mulford.
On the other hand, Oxford have the luxury of a full 1-7 with the Cheetahs skipper, Scott Nicholls looking to once again score heavily to enhance the Cheetah’s chances of progressing from Group B.
