There will be a new start time for Mildenhall speedway in 2014 as the club have decided to bring forward race-day start times one hour to 3.30pm.

Club chairman Kevin Jolly said: “We gave out a questionnaire towards the end of the 2013 season and received some excellent comments and ideas from many of our loyal supporters, many of which are being looked at closely prior to the start of the season.

“I think supporters will appreciate these moves and, although some will be seem quite small, I am positive they will all add to the entertainment value of an afternoon out at Mildenhall speedway.

“One question posed was about our start time and the response we received was greatly in favour of an earlier start, many families stating it would be better as it allowed them to get home with their children at an earlier time with school on the Monday to consider.

“As a family club, we are happy to help meet their wishes and, while we appreciate it may not suit everyone, a large majority were in favour of the move.”

The Tigers have been drawn against arch rivals Cradley Heathens — formerly Dudley — in the opening round of the National League Knockout Cup.
