Three members of Peterborough’s 2014 team will be in action at next Sunday’s special out-of-season meeting at the Showground (Feb 2, midday start).

Ryan Fisher and Ulrich Ostergaard are both confirmed starters for the Winter Cracker main event, which was switched to the Alwalton venue after being postponed due to poor weather at Coventry in late December.

And new reserve signing Oliver Greenwood will be amongst the competitors in a six-heat National League Challenge match between Coventry Storm and Rye House.

Great Britain Grand Prix rider Chris Harris, who returns to Coventry as captain this season, is amongst the riders to take the opportunity for some racing early in the year, and he is joined by hot prospect Richie Worrall who is hoping to force his way into the International picture in 2014.

Other riders with strong Panthers connections are David Howe, Richard Lawson and Chris Schramm.
