SOMERSET speedway promoters are determined to make the 2018 SGB Championship Pairs a marquee event when they host it on Friday July 20th

A meeting that has become synonymous with the British GP, staged on the eve of the Cardiff meeting at the Oak Tree Arena, is set to be bigger and better than the club's previous hosting of this prestigious event, which forms part of the SGB Major Events programme.

The Pairs event became part of the Rebels' fixture list back in 2007, although last season the meeting was 'rained-off' in the final few hours before the event was due to get underway.

"Last season was a massive disappointment to us with the event being rained off on the day" admitted Debbie Hancock "but we will be hoping for our current heatwave to run through this month and make this year's event a very special one indeed.
"As well as attracting fans from the competing Championship teams for what will certainly be a challenging meeting we also hope to whet the appetite of many others and will have a support event of a Mountain Bike Trials Show, with two separate 25 minute sessions being staged on the centre green here at the Oaktree. "
"This is something new for us to and it should be hugely entertaining, besides this I can confirm that once again we will have on-site a face painting artist to decorate the for the Kids during the evening, as we know that is very popular.
"We are keeping prices at the same level set for last season - £20 Adult, £15 concession, £5 Kids (aged 5-15) and free admission for under 5's. and the turnstiles will be opening at 5pm. Highbridge is a perfect 'stopping point' en-route to Cardiff and we will be hoping to have a bumper crowd enjoying the perfect warm-up to the British GP"

Details of the line-up will be notified shortly
