2010 World Cup at King’s Lynn

Why 2011 will be the ultimate year of racing for the Stars K

ing’s Lynn Stars Promoter Buster Chapman has described this season’s fixture list as the “ultimate year of racing for speedway fans” after learning his club will also be staging the Elite League Pairs as well as the Speedway World Cup and a full season of Elite League and National League racing plus a host of other fixtures throughout 2011. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fixture list full of such high profile and exciting events,” he says. “It’s enough to make fans drool and it really does show how far this club has come over the past decade. We knew that last year’s World Cup would put the club in the spotlight and thankfully the event turned out to be one of the KLmagazine March 2011

highlights in World Speedway. The Elite League Pairs Championship will be a sensational way to kick off the season on March 16th and hopefully we’ll have a shot at picking up our first piece of silverware.” The team are really keen to get racing and with the local support they’ve received through sponsorship, the whole of Norfolk can be proud of their efforts. This year, fans can expect the team to be shown to a worldwide audience of over 500 million people, with the new TV deal that’s been signed for worldwide rights – that’s a lot of coverage for any sporting team, let alone a little old speedway team from Norfolk!
