SWINDON skipper Leigh Adams looks set to hang up his kevlars at the end of 2010, after the BSPA granted him a farewell meeting.
The ten-time Australian champion quit Grand Prix racing this year, although he will ride on in the British Elite League with Swindon and the Polish Ekstraliga with Leszno.
But Adams is set to stage a farewell meeting at Blunsdon in October 2010 and Robins promoter Gary Patchett admits this will probably be his final appearance in the UK.
He said: “It is hard to name the date right now, but it will be after the Grand Prix series and the Polish league are over so that Leigh can pull in the best riders possible.

“Once the season gets underway, we will finalise a date with Leigh, but we do want to make sure it is after the play-offs so that, in every sense, it brings the curtain down on the season.
“Leigh is returning early (from Australia) and will be back in a few weeks. Even without the Grand Prix, he still has a busy schedule and is hoping as much as anyone that we can finally bring the league title back to Blunsdon after all the blank years.

“Although he has not announced next season as his retiring date, the fact that the BSPA have given their permission does mean that it is virtually certain it marks the end of his Elite League career.
“It will be a wrench for him, but he is a family man and puts the future of children Declyn and Casey high on his list of priorities.”
