Stoke Speedway wish to clarify the situation with regard to Ben Hopwood to ensure that all parties are aware of the exact position.

Ben has been suspended by the club following events that occurred last Saturday. The Club cannot within the rules change the team declaration and will use R/R for Ben in the remaining matches who thus remains available to ride for other Clubs as a guest. The Club do not wish for Ben to be prevented from taking guest bookings.

The Club do not wish to comment further on the reasons for this action.
