Grand Prix Roadshow At Brandon

CHECK THE RESULTS

Twenty four of the world's leading speedway riders will battle for glory in the Grand Prix roadshow at the refurbished Coventry Stadium tonight.

Five British riders, four Swedes, four Australians, three Danes, three Poles, two Coventry-based Americans and representatives from Hungary, Italy and the Czech Republic will be on parade before a bumper crowd at the Rugby Road circuit.

The showpiece event is the culmination of months of hard work by the Coventry Stadium staff who hope their new banked bowl will be the perfect setting for one of the major events in the speedway calendar.

Reigning World Champion Greg Hancock can see his title slipping away from him and he goes into the Coventry event knowing he must win to leave any chance of retaining his title.

Current Grand Prix leader the Swede Tony Rickardsson appears to have an unassailable lead however with half the Grand Prix events completed and he is most people's bet to take the World Crown.

Top Grand Prix standings:

1 Tony Rickardsson Sweden 68 points
2 Jimmy Nilsen Sweden 46
3 Hans Nielsen Denmark 45
4 Billy Hamill USA 44
5 Chris Louie England 43
6 Tomasz Gollob Poland 40
7 Greg Hancock USA 30
8 Henka Gustafsson Sweden 29
9 Stefan Danno Sweden 27
10 Mark Loram England 23
