Young Grass Speedway Rider Archie Cale Gets Sports Star Spot
After a dreadful end to his 2017 Grasstrack season, Archie Cale is bouncing back with being awarded a place on the 2018 Isle Of Wight Young, Gifted & Talented Sports Star programme.
He was shortlisted in December while recovering from his accident and was awarded his place this week. Archie will now be an ambassador for the island attending events and shows not just to promote himself but the speedway/grasstrack sport in general.
The sponsorship from the IOW Council and Wightlink means that Archie can attend more meetings throughout the season. Archie is overwhelmed at being accepted onto this prestigious programme and hopes with the support of the large companies supporting it he can really have a great 2018.
He has been limited to opportunities to ride in the recent rain and snow but last month joined up with the Weymouth Wildcats at Leicester to get some track time.
We wish Archie all the best for the coming season and look out for the Chesil Radio logo at these events and grass track meetings.
