Grand Prix boost for Shielfield

Berwick Speedway have received an unexpected boost with the news that they are to stage a Grand Prix Qualifier at Shielfield on Saturday, June 7.

Originally, it looked as if the club was to miss out on the FIM calendar events in 2014, but organisational problems in Austria meant the world’s governing body were forced to look elsewhere.

Britain had only been allocated one FIM event in 2014 – the World Team Cup Qualifier at King’s Lynn in July.

And when the authorities decided to switch the meeting to Britain, Berwick were handed the chance to stage it for a second time, having held one in 2012.
