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.
The Last Lap
Ardent Bees supporter Tony Watson has produced a detailed review of every meeting at Brandon for the 2016 season.
"The Last Lap" is available from Tony directly at a cost of £5 of which £3 will go to GB Youth Speedway via Nuneaton Speedway Supporters Club. Copies will also be available at future NSSC meetings.
Update. January 11th 2018. At our recent event Tony presented the NSSC with another cheque for £90 from the proceeds of his publication. This now makes a grand total of £360 ! Which will go to help Neil Vatcher and the Young Lions. Thank you to Tony and all who bought it. There are still a few copies available.
If you are interested in purchasing a copy please contact Tony via email:
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!”
