King’s Lynn chosen to host World Team cup event

King's Lynn's Norfolk Arena will again host speedway's World Team Cup in 2011.

The sport's top brass confirmed today Saddlebow had been selected to stage event two of the FIM Speedway World Team Cup on Monday, July 11 2011. The line up has yet to be announced but Team GB can again count on huge home support after more than 7,000 packed Saddlebow this summer to watch Rob Lyon's men edge out Australia in an epic qualifier televised live around the world.

Team GB went on to just miss out on a podium place in the final won by Poland at Denmark's Vojens track which will also host the opening event one on July 9 2011. The winners from both meetings will progress to the final at Poland's new Gorzow venue on July 16 2011. The second and third placed teams in events one and two will battle out for the remaining two places in a race off also at Gorzow on July 14.
