British Speedway Promoters' Association respond to Kevin Jolly's Rye House revelation

The British Speedway Promoters' Association has released a statement in the wake of a story published in this week's Journal and Free Press print/online editions.

In an interview with former Mildenhall Fen Tigers promoter Kevin Jolly, the 61-year-old spoke of his desire to revive speedway at Rye House in time for the 2020 National League campaign.

Jolly's revelation has been met with plenty of positivity among fans of the sport, and now its organisers have said the following: "The British Speedway Promoters' Association wish to make it clear they are 100 per cent behind the sport returning to Hoddesdon and they retain a firm belief this will happen in the not too distant future.

"The stadium is in new hands with plans for extensive development to improve facilities.

"Reports are correct regarding former Mildenhall man Kevin Jolly expressing an interest in taking on the club - however, we have requested a document from Mr Jolly which he hasn't so far presented to us.

"It is standard policy that clubs must provide this document to be accepted into league racing.

"The British Speedway Promoters' Association would like to wish the new owners of Rye House Stadium well and we look forward to a successful conclusion for the sport resulting in the famous club racing there again."
