UCKFIELD-based children’s author Trisha Bridger will launch her second book on the day of the British Speedway Grand Prix, in Cardiff tomorrow.
Called ‘Speedway,’ the book takes readers on a speedway journey filled with fun and surprises as they imagine racing towards the finishing line. It includes a tribute to the late Lee Richardson, the British rider who died earlier this year following a track crash in Poland. It has won the backing of many of the sport’s leading riders including defending world champion Greg Hancock and three-times champion, Nicki Pedersen.
Trisha – whose nephew is Lewis Bridger, former British Under 18 and Under 21 champion – will be doing a book signing at Waterstones Cardiff.
She will also be in the GP fanzone signing copies of her book with the Lee Richardson Fund raiser. Trisha wrote ‘Speedway’ as a follow up to her first book “Why can’t I Fly?” in aid of Diabetes UK to support her daughter who suffered from the disease. ‘Speedway’ also raises money from book sales for the charity.
