Shaleman’s Speedway Brief – Wednesday

Many of the Eastbourne Speedway riders have been getting track time this week ahead of Saturday’s opening fixture at Arlington.

Admittedly, it is difficult to judge exactly who is doing well, or not, when they are out on track by themselves.

It is, of course, a whole different sport with three others in a no-holds barred race.

But terrace talk suggests young reserve Timo Lahti is looking the business, catching many people’s eyes.

Those who have seen new Russian, Denis Gizatullin, reckon he made a tentative start on Sunday but improved as the day went on.

We shall know for certain on Saturday when the Lifestyle Eagles take on Belle Vue; 7.30pm start
