Premier League speedway champions King's Lynn Stars have announced plans to host what is claimed to be the sport's first ever live interactive global webcast.
The reigning treble winners will unveil the final member of Rob Lyon's 2010 septet at the launch of their own 'Star TV' channel on the official web site next Monday.
The project is aimed at extending the club's fan base beyond Norfolk by offering free-to-air content throughout the new campaign - although live meeting coverage is not part of the package.
The inaugural broadcast will be hosted at a purpose-built studio direct from the track with supporters able to interact through text, video and voice messages.

Team boss Lyon is confident Stars have unearthed another gem to complete their 2010 line up after young Australian reserve Alex Davies was refused a British passport. The champions would have had to revise their original line up to accommodate the teenager, who could still potentially have raced this season on a higher assessed average through an Aussie work visa.
'I don't doubt for one minute that Alex was going to be a fantastic signing,' said Lyon.

'But something tells me that if all goes to plan we haven't done bad in finding a replacement.
'All I can say at this stage is that the rider we want to sign is related to a former world finalist and rode at King's Lynn in a few second half races two seasons ago.'
