The British Speedway chairman and former Somerset promoter says the line-up offers a mouth-watering meeting in prospect.

It's a perfect way for fans to start the Cardiff weekend with a bumper night of action featuring the Premier League's top stars.

Toogood said: “It's always a good event but when you look at the line-up this has all the makings of a sensational night of racing.

“I honestly cannot predict a winner, and that's not me just sitting on the fence! I think it will be a terrific night of racing where every rider will give as much effort as those riding in the Millennium Stadium the following night.
