British Speedway have confirmed that this year's British Final scheduled for Ipswich on 26th September will still go ahead, despite having to impose a strict level of 1000 only spectators.

After the Government's announcement of the strengthening of Covid-19 regulations on Wednesday imposed the tighter number of spectators permitted at their sporting pilot schemes, the decision was reached today to proceed with the flagship meeting for Speedway in what has been a barren year for racing at anything other than National league and lower level.

Host promoter Chris Louis, who has been in close contact with the Government bodies concerning the event, stated "“It’s been a whirlwind 48-hours and after last night’s announcement we knew we had lost over half the numbers we were allowed.
“Thankfully the event is still over two weeks away so, with some hard work, we can deal with this and the first 1,000 tickets will apply. Sadly after that there will be a lot of disappointed people.
“It has taken a massive effort to get to this stage and so many hurdles have had to be overcome but we are excited about hosting the event here at Ipswich.
“The way the line-up is taking shape it promises to be a really close, exciting contest and hopefully we will prove fans can be admitted back into stadia for professional speedway without any problems.”

That lineup already includes Somerset's leading light Rory Schlein who will be joined by one-time Rebel Richard Lawson and former British champion Danny King.
