Colts Are 2017 National League Champions!
The Belle Vue Colts were crowned the 2017 National League Champions after a fiercely contested grand final with Eastbourne, lifting their first major silverware at the National Speedway Stadium.

The home team trailed by 12 points going into the title decider in Manchester and faced a challenging night after the loss of Andy Mellish in the first leg while also still being without Lee Payne.

But both injured riders were determined to be a part of the Cool Running Colts big night and were present at the stadium to lend their help and support to their team mates as battle commenced.

In typical fashion, Belle Vue were in command of proceedings almost immediately despite their handicap and recovered the aggregate scores to within four points after just five intensive races.

They went on to level those scores, and so began a seemingly immovable deadlock that persisted to Heat 12 before Rob Shuttleworth and Luke Woodhull were able to take action and advance.

This came after a terrifying collision between team mates Kyle Bickley and Dan Bewley in Heat 10, the latter of whom got completely out of shape and all but wiped a defenceless Bickley out.

Thankfully both escaped without major injury, and Bewley was able to team up with Jack Smith in Heat 13 to extend the Cool Running Colts' lead to six points with two heats to go.

And it was the skipper Rob Shuttleworth who was able to seal the deal in Heat 14, bagging a 3-3 which ensured the IT First Eagles could not catch them and so confirm Belle Vue as champions.

An ecstatic Jack Smith said: “It’s been a dream to be part of this club this year. My dad was a legend of the Aces and I’m so proud to have represented Belle Vue at both levels this year.

“On the night, it was a bit of a frustrating start for me because my engine went on the line in my first race and my dad had suggested changing bikes before I went out; and I wish I had!

“But that’s trivial compared to the achievement of the team. We’ve gone all all season unbeaten at home and now we’re National League Champions, it’s just an indescribable and amazing feeling.

“We’ve put in the hard work all year and we came too far to throw it away. It was a tough ask without Lee and Andy but everybody pulled together to win this title. I’m so proud of this team.”

The Cool Running Colts return home on Friday October 20 in pursuit of Knock Out Cup glory when they will be targeting a big win over Mildenhall to progress through to the final.

Then the club celebrates with The Maugers on Saturday October 21 at the National Speedway Stadium. Ticket info for all upcoming events is available online at www.bellevueaces.co.

League Leaders Aim To Finish The Job
It’s Grand Final time for the Cool Running Colts as they look to seal the National League title on home territory at the National Speedway Stadium against rivals the Eastbourne Eagles.

The first leg at Arlington fell victim to dense fog following the conclusion of Heat 13; weather that rarely causes concern for speedway racing, but the winter months are of course rolling in.

It brought the meeting to a premature halt but not before a result could be declared which suited Belle Vue to a tee as it restricted damage to a 12-point deficit, well within their ability to pull back.

But it was a bitter sweet result after the loss of Andy Mellish, who was involved in a gnarly collision that ended his season after he suffered a broken toe and six broken metatarsals in his right foot.

It means the home team can only use an un-contracted 3.00-point guest in his place though they are greatly boosted by the return of star riders Dan Bewley and Jack Smith to their powerful ranks.

Team skipper Rob Shuttleworth said: “It was a tough night at Eastbourne and the mist rolling in was really a blessing in disguise in some respects as it’s afforded us a fighting chance at home.

“But we’re not taking anything for granted. We’ve only reached the halfway point and though our record at home would suggest we’re the favourites to win, Eastbourne aren’t making up numbers.

“They have a job to do, and an objective to achieve just as we have. This is the league title we’re talking about and both teams will be bringing their A-game to this second leg, no doubt.

“It’s such a blow for us to lose Andy so close to the end but I’m sure he’ll be there with us in spirit, and with both Dan and Jack with us there’s no reason we can’t recover the aggregate scores.”

The Cool Running Colts complete a busy week of racing on Friday against Mildenhall where an aggregate victory will see them through the Knock Out Cup grand final against Eastbourne.

Tickets for these upcoming fixtures are available now at www.bellevueaces.co, or at the ticket office on race day.

Aces Are KOC Champions
The Belle Vue Aces were crowned 2017 Knock Out Cup Champions on home shale at the National Speedway Stadium on Monday after an intensive tussle with fierce rivals Wolverhampton.

The Rentruck Aces tailed by 10 points going into the second-leg decider, their second attempt at running the meeting after the original staging was postponed due to inclement weather last week.

After three heats, the hosts had quashed the advantage held by the Parrys International Wolves and it was very much game on for the last piece of coveted silverware of the 2017 campaign.

It brings to a close an incredible year for the team, who have battled relentlessly to earn the prize that now graces their trophy cabinet though Wolverhampton certainly made them work for it.

Delighted team boss Mark Lemon said: “It’s hard to believe we’ve won this amazing trophy. So much hard work, so much blood, sweat and tears have gone into this whole season it’s unreal.

“It’s a relief to finally see such a magnificent piece of silverware with our name on it. It’s been a tough year but all the boys have been exceptional. It’s definitely been a long time coming.

“As a rider I know how hard it is to win trophies but I had no idea as a manager how much harder the same accomplishment is! We’re just want to savour the moment. I’m so proud of this team.

“They knuckled down, and there were so many hurdles to overcome to get to this point but they tackled each one head on and you couldn’t ask for more than that from any of them.”

That concludes an amazing 2017 season for the Rentruck Aces, but there’s still plenty of speedway action to be had in Manchester before the calendar officially closes on October 31.

It’s a busy week across the board for the Cool Running Colts with meetings on Wednesday and Friday, before the club gathers for its end-of-season celebration, ‘The Maugers’ on October 21.

Tickets for all upcoming events are available online at www.bellevueaces.co. For bookings to The "Maugers", please call 0161 711 0828 and choose Option 2 for Speedway.
