Shorttrack UK have confirmed that speedway legend Jason Crump will be in the line up at the Braintree Bonanza on the 27th December, at the indoor Towerlands Park venue.
Jason who tested at Braintree on Monday, the first time on a bike since the last operation on his arm in October, has confirmed he is fit to take his place in the 32 rider field. Pete Boast promoter of the event said ' We are over the moon to have Jason riding with us. I've known Jason for few years now and he rode one of my bikes at a Scunthorpe practice and really enjoyed himself. I had thought about asking Jason to come race previously but in the summer he's flat out with speedway and in the winter he goes back home to Aussie. However, last week he called me to say that he was staying in England this winter and asked if we could fit him in at Braintree, on the condition that he could practice to make sure is arm was back up to full strength. I'm pleased say all went well in practice and he is looking forward to racing at the indoor venue.
Tickets are selling fast and now that Jason is riding we expect them to go even quicker. I urge the fans to buy tickets on line through the Shorttrackuk.com website or call the office on 01673 878426, as last year we ended up having to turn people away without tickets as we just couldn't fit any more in.'
Jason joins the other speedway riders - Edward Kennett, Kevin Doolan and Simon Lambert, Road Race Stars - Steve Plater and Sam Lowes, Grasstrackers - Mitch Godden and Darren Rolf and full time Shorttrack riders Jacopo Monti (ITALY), Chris Boone (USA), Aidan Collins, Pete Boast and Tom Woolley.
The entertainment starts at 12 with the Marxman Marching Band and racing at 1pm.
