King's Lynn Stars will not become the first away team to ride at Belle Vue Aces' new home.
Tomorrow's fixture was called off this afternoon because of wet weather and a poor forecast. It means the Aces' embarrassing wait to stage a meeting at their much-publicised new National Speedway Stadium goes on.
In news away from the Elite League, Niels-Kristian Iversen was left to rue a slow start as his first Grand Prix appearance of 2016 finished early.
Lynn's number one won one heat, his last, at the opening round of this year's series to end the evening with eight points. He failed to make the semi-finals on countback and then posted the phrase 'too little, too late,' on Twitter.
Norwich-based Jason Doyle (13 points) came second in the final, which was won by Peter Kildemand – who leads the standings after scoring 15 points in Krsko, Slovenia.
