Aces draw at Wolves
Belle Vue surged into action against the Wolverhampton Wolves at Monmore Green tonight, pulling back an 8-point deficit to draw 45-45 and claim their first away points of the season.
The nation watched live on Sky Sports as Matej Zagar and Scott Nicholls demolished the Wolves' spotless home record in a dramatic last-heat decider which saw the Rentruck Aces bag a vital 5-1, and two well-earned EL points, to draw the meeting.
A pep talk from team manager Jason Attwood ahead of the action soon put paid to any thoughts of his side coming away empty handed, as he made clear his expectations for the night.
He said: "Monmore Green is a difficult place to visit and I'm delighted with tonight's result.
"If you'd asked me at the beginning of the evening, taking at least a point was probably the minimum we were looking for.
"I had a chat with the boys on the track walk and we knew we needed to be picking up points from our away meetings as we've been doing at home, and tonight we've done exactly that."
Seven-times British Champion Scott Nicholls, who top scored for the Rentruck Aces with 12+1, admits the visitors may not have been favourites for the win, but remains adamant the team is capable of building on tonight's performance.
He said: "I don't think anybody expected us to win tonight because Wolverhampton are pretty special around here.
"They have a big home track advantage, but even though we were 8 points down at one stage we kept our heads up and we never gave in.
"I think that really showed towards the end, and I feel the 5-1 myself and Matej pulled off in Heat 15 to get the draw should be a wake-up call to those teams we haven't visited yet."
Tonight's Top Scorers:
Wolverhampton Wolves: 45
Ricky Wells 10, Tai Woffinden 8+1, Jacob Thorssell 8, Ashley Morris 8, Piotr Pawlicki 6+1, Tom Perry 3+1, Ty Proctor 2+1

Aces Bite Back
An elated Belle Vue side became the first team this season to defeat the Wolverhampton Wolves, as they swept to a 50-39 victory that maintained their flawless, undefeated home record.
Kirkmanshulme Lane was packed to the rafters with one of the biggest crowds its ever hosted, with fans turning out in even greater numbers than when the home side won the knock out cup back in 2005.
Under a flawless blue sky, and with the sun beating down, the Rentruck Aces took control early on with a strong, consistent performance that proved too hot to handle for the visiting Wolves.
And not even 2013 World Champion Tai Woffinden could provide the answer as he watched his side slip further and further behind.
Team manager Jason Attwood was delighted to see another comfortable home victory from his team, but admits there is still plenty of work to do.
He said, "It feels great for us to beat a good Wolves side, not only because they won twice here last year but it's their first defeat this season and it was dealt at the hands of Belle Vue.
"It got a bit scary towards the end when they scored two 5-1's on the trot because we thought we were watching a win slip away before our eyes, so we've still got a lot that can be improved on.
"It'll be a totally different kettle of fish on Tuesday when we're away at Monmore Green; like ourselves, Wolves have an undefeated home record so far and I'm sure they'll be up for our visit.
"But I think we've got a team this year that are more than capable of rising to the challenge. We've got a bit of confidence to take into that meeting but we'll need to be on it from the word 'go'; I know I'm up for it so hopefully the guys are too."
Belle Vue 'Rentruck' Aces: 50
Scott Nicholls 12+1, Matej Zagar 10+1, Richie Worrall 9, Stefan Nielsen 8+1, Craig Cook 5+1, Michael Palm Toft 5+1, Ben Reade 1
Wolverhampton 'Parrys International' Wolves: 39
Tai Woffinden 9+1, Ricky Wells 9, Tom Perry (G) 6, Jacob Thorssell 4+1, Piotr Pawlicki 4+1, Ty Proctor 4, Ashley Morris 3+1

Opportunity for the ultimate speedway fan
Belle Vue Speedway are delighted to announce a brand new sponsorship opportunity for 2014.
You only have to browse eBAY on a regular basis to see that the market for speedway memorabilia is increasing on a rocket-like trajectory. Race jackets for example are now seen as a gilt edged investment, given the prices they are commanding, and the value being placed upon them by avid collectors in the sport.
With this in mind, the promotion here at Belle Vue would like to offer the fans an opportunity to own an exclusive package of memorabilia and the opportunity to have their name in lights inside the 2014 match programme. The package has been carefully crafted by the promotion to offer the maximum value to the individuals concerned, and will contain the following items :
This package is unique and unavailable on the open market. We have 7 such packages available that correspond to each of the Belle Vue riders.
We anticipate great demand for each of these packages and we don’t expect these to remain on the shelf for a long period of time. We also expect that some will be more popular than others and with this in mind we will be operating an email/letter offer system.
We ask that any individuals who are interested in becoming an equipment sponsor send an email or letter into the club with the name of the rider they wish to sponsor and the bid they wish to make to be the title sponsor. We are looking for bids above £400.00 which we see as tremendous value given the package that has been put together.
The 2014 body colour will not be available to anyone else during the course of the year. For those businesses who wish to take advantage of the offer – we will prepare an invoice if required.
Please send your email bids to email@example.com, or your mail bids to Highland House, Europa Triangle, John Gilbert Way, Trafford Park, Manchester, M17 1FP.
Please clearly state the rider name and also your full contact details. We will then respond back to the highest bid offers with full confirmation before the end of April 2014.
This is a tremendous opportunity and one which will not be repeated!
