Speedway Rule Hits Coventry 'Bees'

One of Coventry speedway's star riders will have to be ditched under new rules governing the sport next season.

The British Speedway Promoters' Association has rubber stamped proposals for seven-man teams next season with a ceiling of forty points per team.

Based on this season's individual averages Coventry's three top men Greg Hancock (average 9.42), Brian Andersen (7.75) and Billy Hamill (9.96) total 27.13 points, leaving too small a margin to squeeze four more riders into the team.

The man most likely to be let go is Hamill, the loan rider from Cradley Heath. The resulting margin would give Coventry room to sign a promising middle order rider and it is reported that they have already targeted Reading's exciting young talent Lee Richardson.

Hamill meanwhile is wanted by newly promoted Hull.
