The meeting - the ninth of its kind - raises funds for the Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund, which helps injured riders.

It has attracted some of the world’s top riders to its line-up in the past and heads to the Peugeot Ashfield Stadium on Sunday, March 12, at 2pm.

Ben Fund secretary and teasurer Paul Ackroyd said he had been impressed with his dealings with Tigers chiefs in arranging the meeting.

He said: “We are grateful to Glasgow Tigers Speedway for volunteering to stage the meeting.

“They were very keen to have the meeting and have been most accommodating.”
