SPEEDWAY: The Vortex Lakeside Hammers switch to Saturday night action over the forthcoming Bank Holiday weekend when play off rivals, the Coventry Bees, visit the Arena Essex Raceway on August 23.

The start will be at 7.45pm and the Thurrock track team will need to take all the League points to maintain their play off push.

Good news for the team is that Captain Davey Watt is on course to return from his foot injury and may well be fit to return the night before when the team travel to Coventry.

Rory Schlein continues to deputise for Mikkel Bech, who himself will return to action for the Club two days later at Swindon on Bank Holiday Monday.
