Hitmen action

AFTER a week’s break from racing, Buxton Hitmen are back in action on Sunday for their final league meeting of the season against Newport (3pm start).

It’s sure to be a close match, with the Hitmen fired-up to finish the season on a winning note.

l The following weekend, Sunday October 9, the Buxton track will host a special American-style speedway event.

Under the American format, the program is divided into handicap and scratch racing competitions.

Sixteen riders will be in the event, and each side of the program will begin with four heats. The first two finishers in each heat make the semi-final, with the top two from each semi reaching the final.
