Holder and Ward to ride In Speedway Racing News Leigh Adams Benefit Meeting

Posted:

The first names have been released for the Speedway Racing News Leigh Adams Benefit meeting to be held at Adelaide's Gillman Speedway in November and they include two of Australia's biggest names on the international scene, Chris Holder and Darcy Ward.

Chris Holder, 23, is the current Australian Champion and World number eight after a successful debut season in the World Championship series in 2010 which included a magnificent victory in the FIM British Grand Prix at Cardiff. This season he has won the Swedish Grand Prix and is seventh in the points but only six points behind defending World Champion Tomasz Gollob who is in third place.

19-year-old Darcy Ward is the current World Under 21 Champion, and one of only two riders to have won the title back-to-back. He currently leads the 2011 series and will be the first rider to win the title three times if he wins this year.

Joining Holder and Ward will be their fellow Poole team-mate and captain, Dave Watt and Eastbourne's Cameron Woodward.

"Hey we are not finished yet" said Gillman Speedway Manager Dave Parker, "I am still in negotiations with three more International Superstars and I am sure that come November 26 we will have one of the strongest fields seen in Australia for some time. I must thank Dave Watt for sorting a lot of the riders out in the UK, it has made our job here a lot easier".

"The sidecars were arranged ages ago" continued Parker, "and of course we have Australia's best including current Australian Champion Glenn O'Brien, current World Track Racing Champion Mick Headland, and Australia's most successful rider of all time Darrin Treloar".

There will also be a number of past greats attending, like John Titman, Troy Butler and Steve Baker, to name just a few, and Troy's brother Steve will be performing a stunt show as part of the entertainment at what will be a very busy day and night.

There will be one special guest though that everyone will want to see, Leigh Adams, who will be there with his wife Kylie and two children.

Special raffle prizes will be on the table as well with donations from Kelly Brothers Racing (of V8 Supercar fame), Suzuki ASBK Champion Josh Waters and many others.

Mark the date, 26 November, in your diaries, and bring a friend to make this night a memorable one for Leigh Adams.
