NINE names have now been confirmed for Birmingham’s ‘Rivalries Renewed’ season finale at Perry Barr on Wednesday, October 17 (7.30).

The three team, four-man tournament will see the Edwards Plumbing Brummies take on Wolves and Heathens Select sides on an exciting night of racing in the second city.

Fans’ favourites James Shanes and Leon Flint will ride for Birmingham – the latter declaring himself fit for the finale after escaping with no broken bones from two heavy crashes at Mildenhall last weekend.

The Brummies quartet is completed by rising star Anders Rowe as well as Dan Gilkes – a 3.00 unattached rider who will be hot property in the third tier next season.

Wolves’ Select side includes Birmingham’s two-time title winning captain Tom Perry, former British Under-19 Champion Max Clegg and Dan Greenwood who had a brief spell with the Brummies earlier this season.

Meanwhile the Heathens Select includes teenage wonderkids Drew Kemp and Kyle Bickley who both rode for Cradley during their 2018 National Trophy campaign.

Birmingham co-promoter David Mason said: “We’re delighted that the line-up is looking so strong and competitive with just a few of the reserve positions left to fill.

“It’s going to be a great meeting with a different format to round off the year and hopefully it’s going to appeal to all supporters across the Midlands because the winter is very long without speedway.”


BIRMINGHAM: James Shanes, Leon Flint, Anders Rowe, Dan Gilkes.

WOLVES SELECT: Max Clegg, Tom Perry, Dan Greenwood, TBC.

HEATHENS SELECT: Drew Kemp, Kyle Bickley, TBC, TBC.
