Lemon: "Our Fate In Our Hands"
In their quest for the Elite League title, it’s been a case of “what a difference a day makes” for Belle Vue this week after two significant results elsewhere put control of their fate back in their hands.
Closest rivals King’s Lynn had hoped to steer the Rentruck Aces out of the top four on Tuesday night with what many considered would be an easy win over wooden spoon holders Leicester.
But in a dramatic last-heat decider it was the Lions who left to the tune of a 44-46 victory and 24 hours later the Stars took a further 62-30 pounding from table-toppers Poole on Wednesday.
The Norfolk outfit now have only one home fixture remaining, in which they can only take a maximum of three league points should they be successful in defeating the Swindon Robins
Belle Vue however can take a maximum of four points from their clash at Wolves this Monday but being marginally ahead of the Stars in the table, they require only two to qualify for the play offs.

Anticipation for this final key fixture has gripped the entire club ever since news broke of the shock result at the Adrain Flux Arena, with many fans of the opinion that it’s the Rentruck Aces’ to lose.
Club No.1 Matej Zagar is gunning for a return to action with his team mates at Monmore Green where a victory would cement their place as title contenders for the first time since 2005.
In a week where uncertainty prevailed early doors, team boss Mark Lemon declared that the squad under his command had the drive and the determination to now finish the job they set out to do.
He said: “A lot of people are looking at it as ours for the taking, which it is I suppose. We’ve just got to ensure we’re not the ones to slip up. What we’ve got to do is go to Wolves and consolidate a win.
“That’s not going to be easy. We’ve never been a team to underestimate our opponents but I don’t think motivating the boys will be a problem at all. They’re really pumped up and ready for this.
“We were very conservative about our fate after the meeting against Leicester on Sunday because with our remaining fixtures, versus our rivals, admittedly it looked unlikely we would make the cut.
“I don’t think anyone could’ve predicted that King’s Lynn would lose their unbeaten home record to the Lions on Tuesday because the assumption was that they would’ve had the result in the bag.
“But Bomber [Chris Harris], who has been an exceptional guest for us lately, pulled out a stunning performance while deputising for Jason Doyle to effectively put us back into play off contention.
“It’s certainly changed the psyche of our team ahead of the match down at Monmore Green. The pressure is now somewhat off us but not completely. Whether we’re in or out, it’s all up to us.”

Tension Mounts As Wolves Washed Out
Belle Vue will have to wait that little bit longer to discover their fate in the Elite League standings after their match at Wolverhampton’s Monmore Green Stadium was washed out on Monday.
Heavy rain throughout the day saw several meetings fall foul of the elements and with the top flight’s fixture deadline approaching, frustrations around re-staging dates are starting to rise.
The Rentruck Aces require maximum points from their clash with Wolverhampton, as well as a dash of misfortune for their closest rivals, if they hope to keep their ambitions for the season alive.

But with his squad seeing no further action for the time being, team manager Mark Lemon took the opportunity to reflect on what he believes has already been a successful year for the club.
He said: “As the final flag cam down on Monday you could sense the tension change from gunning for the win to celebrating the time Belle Vue has spent here at the Kirkmanshulme Lane circuit.
“It’s still not quite over for us though. We’ve still to go to Wolverhampton and round off our calendar. Off course we were hoping to see some action there yesterday but for the weather!
“As of yet we have no re-staging date but with a bit of luck we can pick up the points we’re after down there and hopefully see a few more laps at the old place before we call time on our season.
“Nevertheless if we do miss out on a place in the play offs and end up finishing fifth in the league, of course we’ll be disappointed but at the same time I think its been a successful campaign for us.
“We’ve pushed as hard as we could in every match we’ve raced and with a bit more good fortune along the way, maybe things could’ve been different but all in all it’s been an exciting year.
“For me personally it’s been a challenge and I’m just really so proud of all the boys and how we’ve been able to work with each other to make this last year at the old stadium one we’ll never forget.”

NSS - Seeing Is Believing
Since the concept of a purpose-built speedway venue in Manchester was proposed in 2007, it has generated ripples of curiosity around the world; but in particular, around the Manchester area.
The National Speedway Stadium, brand new home of the Belle Vue Aces, has continued to attract attention ever since, but never more so than this year, now it has ceased to be merely an artist's impression.
On Sunday July 19th, contractors ISG together with BVA presented fans nationwide with the unique opportunity to experience the scale of the sport’s new home in Manchester for themselves.
In the one-off open day, permission was granted for an area of the construction site to be made accessible to visitors and local residents so they could view the development from close quarters.

Queues quickly formed from 9:30am with visitor numbers stretching into the hundreds as excitement for the venue’s grand opening meeting next year continues to mount, while interest rapidly spreads nationwide.
Four of the world's finest athletes, Nicki Pedersen, Chris Holder, Tai Woffinden and Niels-Kristian Iversen, are already confirmed starters for the Peter Craven Memorial Trophy on Saturday March 19th 2016.
So great has been the response of the public that seats in the grandstand are now sold out. Hospitality packages, which include seating in the premium section, are still available although in extremely limited numbers.
Tickets for the stadium's terraced areas are still available but the club's recent publicity announcements, including a trip down to Cardiff for the British GP, has seen sales in this area begin to rocket as well.
The BVA management are projecting a complete sell-out for this historic, flagship event and any fans who have yet to do so are urged to secure their place in history before it's too late!
