Chesil Radio - Speedway Update

Chesil Radio are proud to be associated with the Weymouth Wildcats Speedway Team. The 2018 Season coverage will be bigger and better than last year and we are proud to announce we will be sponsoring the Race Jackets and of course we will be trackside for as many of the meetings as possible. Home and away for the Southern Development League (SDL), which Weymouth currently ride in.

We are also involved in sponsoring other riders in both Speedway and Grasstrack including Team Archie Racing who we have been keeping update with his progress following his crash a few weeks ago and will continue to do so.

We are also pleased to announce that we have been involved in sponsoring a trophy for the Plymouth Devils Speedway gala night that will recognise a few team members who cross over into the Plymouth Demons team at SDL level.

Nikki Latham, our station controller and trackside presenter says: "I had never seen speedway prior to commentating on my first SDL meeting, which resulted in the new captain, Frenchy, who I had announced his new captaincy earlier in the day on the station, crashing and led onto his retirement from the sport. Frenchy promised me the VIP treatment but little did I know that I would have one of the most difficult live broadcasts to deal with ever.

Fortunately, he was ok but not the easiest knowing their family are listening at home a long way away. I have gone on to be made to feel part of the Weymouth Wildcats family and I thank James and Martin for taking the time with me to learn and the team themselves who have always been willing to rise to the challenge of my interviews. Also to the other teams who have taken time to talk to me when they have been racing against the Wildcats and I can't wait for the 2018 season to start."

During the closed season, we will keep you up to date with any team news or developments, we plan to have a couple of shows for you in the coming months with the first one at present time pencilled in for 18th November at 7pm, subject to presenter availability and interviewees being available.

This first show will be a round-up of the 2017 season and will only be a short 1 hour show to bring our listeners highlights, Team Archie Racing and SDL news.

We are looking for a sponsor for the show itself so that we can travel to more of the SDL meetings and improve our coverage, please contact us at: info@chesilradio.com for more information.
