From the organising committee, Laurence Rogers explains more,

“The race jackets worn by each rider in both parts of the meeting will be signed and auctioned off after the meeting raising funds towards the futures of Danny’s two young daughters, where all the proceeds from this charity event are going.  There will also be other Speedway items in the auction, some donated by riders unable to make the meeting to ride…..so fans bring your piggy banks with you!

“Well known ex-riders are being invited to be in attendance and will be interviewed during the meeting and be available for photos and autographs.” 

“All in all this should be a meeting not to miss and a great day out whilst remembering Speedway’s number 1 showman, Danny Ayres and raising funds for the futures of his two girls.”
