Revived Reading speedway team announces return to racing

A revived speedway motorcycle racing team has announced its first fixture.

The Reading Racers will compete against Weymouth Wildcats in Eastbourne in a one-off meeting in September.

The Racers disbanded in 2008 when their Smallmead stadium closed, to make way for a redeveloped stadium and casino which was never built.

Campaigners are attempting to find land for a new stadium and are raising funds in the hope of putting together a team for next season.
