BIRMINGHAM co-owner David Mason is relishing a sense of normality at tonight's (Wednesday, July 21, 7.30) home meeting with Redcar at Perry Barr.

With Covid-19 restrictions lifted, supporters can now pay by cash or card on the gate right up until start time - a massive boost to the club's older supporters who have been struggled to purchase tickets online previously this season.

For the first time this year as well, the pits will be open to the public up until 6.50.

Said Mason: "That will be great for the supporters to get back in the thick of things as the build-up goes on and the riders will be more than happy to have a chat, have a picture and sign an autograph or two I'm sure.

"Having that option available for supporters to pay as they turn up as well is huge for us as that's what Speedway fans are used to - so we're delighted that some common sense has been applied now that 'Freedom Day' has been and gone.

"Not having to worry about all of these other regulations will be a massive weight off our shoulders for sure - but of course we urge the supporters to still be sensible and keep everyone as safe as they can at the same time.

"Dixie (Dean - track curator) has been working super hard on the track these past few days and he's lost count of how much water he's had to put down.

'The track is looking great though, the weather is fantastic and we're looking forward to what should be a thrilling night of Speedway all-round at Perry Barr.

"The cup tie is nicely poised with just two points between the two teams, we're back at full strength, Redcar are stronger by bringing in two in-form guests at reserve (Drew Kemp and Dan Thompson) - so bring it on and let's all enjoy a cracking night of Speedway with a much more normal feel about it!"
