CO-OWNER Julie Mahoney and Director of Speedway Peter Oakes have become promoters at Peterborough.

They join co-owner Rick Frost who has been the sole promoter since the end of last season to form a new-look leadership team.

Julie, who is also the Readypower Panthers' Finance Director, has been a major influence since she and Rick saved the club from closure in August, 2008.

Oakes, a former Panthers' owner, returned to the East of England Showground in December after a successful five-and-a-half years as joint team manager at Coventry, where he guided the Bees to six major trophies, including two Elite League titles.
