2019 Sponsorship Update !!!
We are pleased to announce that we will be increasing our financial support for the Young Lions in the 2019 season.
We will be donating £2500 to Neil Vatcher to help encourage and support young British riders.
Proceeds from NSSC's events are used to help Neil Vatcher and the Young Lions so a very big thank you to everybody who supports these events and especially those riders, team managers, promoters, referees and the media who give up their time to entertain us. We have also had a windfall from the sale of memorabilia rescued from Brandon and donated to the NSSC by Coventry Motor Speedway Ltd.
Ben Fund evening at the NSSC 2018
An interesting, absorbing and emotional evening with special guests; Paul Ackroyd, Garry Stead, Adam Roynon and Ricky Ashworth raised a total of £500 for the Ben Fund.
We were also able to re-unite Ricky and Garry with their 2006 British Final race jackets which were rescued from Brandon before it closed.
A Celebration of British Youth Speedway at the NSSC (2016)
The Young Lions Management held a “Celebration of British Speedway night” at the Nuneaton Speedway Supporters Club, Brandon, Coventry on Saturday night to celebrate the success of all the 2016 British Champions.
With over 100 people in attendance, which included 6 of the 7 2016 British Champions, Danny King (Senior), Josh Bates (Under 21), Max Clegg (Under 19), Kyle Bickley (500cc Youth), Nathan Ablitt (150cc Youth) and Dan Thompson (125cc Youth).
The 250cc Youth Champion Leon Flint unfortunately was unable to attend due to a family illness.
Steve Brandon from Sky Sports compared the evening, and did a fantastic job interviewing the 6 British Champions who were in attendance, and along with GB Youth Boss Neil Vatcher, a number of the British Youth Sponsors.
Vatcher said, “Saturday was yet another first for the Young Lions to organise such an amazing and enjoyable evening and would like to thank the members of the Nuneaton Supporters Club for hosting us, and also to Brando for doing such a great job on the mic, and to all the riders and supporters who came along”.
“Thoughts are already in place on how we do it bigger and better next year” Vatcher said, and quoted with a cheeky smile, “perhaps we might think about organising a Big Awards night involving all of British Speedway with the proceeds going back to supporting the British Youth!”
