NSSC Sponsorship. Where our money comes from and where it goes to.
All profits from the 50/50 Draw held at Coventry Speedway were donated directly to the Coventry Bees and Coventry Storm riders. This fundraising is completely separate from Club events and ceased at the end of the 2016 season. Please find more information here
All profits raised from Club events are used to sponsor the GB Young Lions.
Memorabilia donated by Coventry Racing Club Ltd in November 2016 was sold in order to raise funds to help support the British Young Lions.
