Manchester City Council and BV Arena Limited have confirmed the intention to carry out urgent repair works to a number of sections of the circuit so as to ensure that it is able to successfully host [top flight] speedway events at the new National Speedway Stadium.
The decision follows investigations into defects in two sections of the track which came to light due to recent inclement weather and which, along with recent weather conditions, has rendered the track surface unsuitable for racing.
Whilst it is disappointing to have to cancel further events, the priority of both the Council and Belle Vue is to ensure the safety of the riders and also the quality of the racing for spectators.
They are however confident that the scheduled repair works will provide a permanent solution to the problems that have been experienced since the opening and that the track will be fully operational very soon.
Updates on progress of the works and scheduling of race meetings to take place at the stadium will follow next week.
