Top grasstrack talent will compete at the David Nix Memorial Meeting at Wainfleet and District Sporting Motorcycle Club.

The event - celebrating its 10th anniversary - will be held on Sunday.

The meeting celebrates the life of Carrington-based Nix, who died in speedway action at King’s Lynn Stadium in May 2002.

Lincolnshire aces and national stars will compete in 250cc, 350cc, 500cc and 1,000cc sidecar categories.

Ex-British champion Paul Cooper and Sleaford’s Ben Fenn-Smith are among the 500cc competitors, with top veteran Bob Dolmanin the 350cc line-up.

Another British champion, David Knowles, will be in the 250cc event, alongside Wragby father and son, Ricky and Kurtis Scarboro.

Friskney’s Colin Blackbourn, with passenger Paul Whitelam jnr, will compete in the sidecars. Fellow former Masters champions Paul Whitelam and Rob Wilson will also compete, along with Wrangle’s Shaun Simpson, Rob Bradley’s passenger.

Racing begins at 1.30pm. Admission costs £12 (£10 concessions, £5 children, under 12s go free).
