Speedway will return to Peterborough as early as next month – as the club will be staging a winter meeting at the Showground!

Sunday February 2, with a midday start, is the date for supporters to put into their diaries for the re-scheduled Christmas Cracker.

The meeting was originally to be staged at Coventry, where Panthers leasehold consortium leader Mick Horton is owner and promoter, on December 29.
