SPEEDWAY: King’s Lynn Stars are pressing ahead with their new 2020 club programme, despite the delay in the start of on-track action.

The brainchild of Minors and Brady Stars co-promoter Dale Allitt, a 24-page A5 publication will be available to buy online and is set to become a collectable item.

Depending on the reaction, the plan is for the club to produce the magazine on a fortnightly basis to help ease the boredom for frustrated fans.

Issue one is available now and includes columns from club owner Keith Chapman, team boss Peter Schroeck and Allitt himself, along with a four-page interview with German star Erik Riss, a quiz, kids’ page and guest columns from the top writers in the sport.

“It is a very difficult situation, but we are putting something together with Curtis Sport ,” said Allitt.

“People will be able to purchase it online and it will be delivered to them direct.

“It will be a programme-type of format, which will keep people in touch with the sport.

“There will be some riders stories, nostalgia, quizzes, prizes and all sorts of bits and pieces to keep people entertained while they have to self-isolate.

“I know all about that because I am in one of those vulnerable groups, being diabetic, so it is all about finding stuff to do.

“It’s more about keeping the fans interested in what is going on and communicating with them because we can’t get together socially.

“People can’t come to us so we will go to them in the form of this magazine, which is something completely new for the club.” 

Priced at £2.25 plus postage and packing, it is on sale at curtis-sport.com
