On Friday 31st March the Scottish Open Championship returns to the speedway calendar.
The Championship makes a return for the first time since 2014 and reigning champion Sam Masters will be back to defend his title.
Edinburgh Monarchs Club Chairman, Alex Harkess said, "We try to fit the Scottish Open into our calendar every year but it has become more difficult in recent years to put a field together during the height of the summer. We think that there will be greater rider availability at the start of the season to join the seven Monarchs in the lineup."
Here at Harrisons we are delighted to return as the Championship sponsor. When our director David MacFarlane heard that Scottish Speedway were planning to open the season with the Open Championship he immediately agreed to continue with our sponsorship. David commented," We first sponsored this meeting in 2012 and enjoyed it immensely. We have backed it on the three occasions it has been held since and are happy to be involved again. We're looking forward to a great night."
This is going to make a very special start to the season and the Monarchs be announcing additional attractions in the weeks leading up to the event. We want to return and enjoy a great night at Armadale Speedway.
More details of competing riders and other attractions will be announced in due course and advance tickets for the event will go on sale online on 1st March.
