“LET’S go out with a bang” – that’s the message from Birmingham co-owner David Mason ahead of Wednesday’s 2019 Perry Barr finale against Berwick (7.30).

It’s been a frustrating season for the Edwards Plumbing Brummies who have seen their first year back in professional league racing plagued by injuries.

But for their final home clash of the season they are back to a full 1-7 with Jason Garrity available following recent illness.

Wednesday’s fixture promises to be a thriller as well with the visitors still hunting down a play-off place.

Said Mason: “Fair play to Berwick for getting themselves back into contention and it means they come to us with plenty to ride for.

“They’ve got a really solid side as well with riders who always put on a show at Perry Barr.

“We all know what Leon (Flint) is capable of after his debut campaign with us in the National League last year, Kevin Doolan is the joint track record holder and they’ve got Ben Barker guesting at No.1 who was superb for Scunthorpe last week.

“But we want to go out with a bang for our supporters who have been brilliant all season long - and they should know what we can do ourselves with a full 1-7!

“We’re in for a brilliant night all round and this is their last chance to get a dose of Speedway at Perry Barr for at least six months so hopefully we’ll get a good crowd.”

A reminder that Kids 11 and Under are admitted absolutely FREE on what is a great night out for all the family.

The team pits will be open for supporters to get up close to the riders and their machines between 6.30 and 6.50 with Tobias Thomsen available for autographs and pictures in the lower grandstand bar between 6.40 and 6.50.

Supporters will again be able to take advantage of the Perry Barr Centre Green Experience. Up to 25 supporters will have the chance to watch three races from the infield.

Tickets to watch Heats 12-14 will be on sale upon entry to the stadium for just £3 per person and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

There will also be games and activities on the centre green for junior supporters during the interval.

The main event will be followed by a Midland and Southern Development League decider with the Birmingham Ductair Electrics Bulls needing at least a draw against Milton Keynes Knights to become inaugural Champions.

BIRMINGHAM: Adam Ellis, Tobias Thomsen, Tero Aarnio, Paco Castagna, Jason Garrity, Nick Agertoft, Tom Perry.
BERWICK: Ben Barker, Dany Gappmaier, Tomas H Jonasson, Kevin Doolan, Jye Etheridge, Coty Garcia, Leon Flint.
