Meeting co-ordinator Garry May said: “Since first announcing that we will be staging the meeting, we have been contacted by a number of riders eager to take part, and offers of both rider and heat sponsorship have started to come in.
“People can sponsor a rider for �50, for which they will receive the rider’s race-jacket duly signed by their rider, with heat sponsorship being set at �25.
