Welcome to 2014
Welcome to the 2014 speedway season, which is just around the corner, and once again it promises to be an extremely busy one for Danny King who will line up as captain of the Birmingham Selco Brummies as they bid to repeat their exploits of last season and go one better this time around. Danny lines up alongside Ben Barker, Daniel Nermark, Edward Kennett, Adam Skornicki, Paul Starke and Simon Lambert as the bid for Elite League glory begins.
Danny’s own season kick starts in spectacular fashion on Sunday 9th March (2pm) as he lines up for Team GB in the annual Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund meeting at Leicester’s Beaumont Park stadium against a Rest of the World select
in a 14 heat showdown. This will be followed by the individual Ben Fund Bonanza 2014 which will consist of four heats plus a Grand Final.
Danny is next in action after that on Monday 17tth March in the Banks’s Olympique Classic at Wolverhampton (7.30pm)
before competing in Birmingham’s opening meeting, the Selco Classic Individual (7.30pm), on Wednesday 19th March
. From there the early season Danny King road show moves on to appear in Morten Risager’s Testimonial meeting at Ipswich on Saturday 22nd March (7pm)
before making an appearance in the prestigious renamed Elite Riders Championship at Coventry’s Brandon Stadium on Sunday 23rd March at 6pm
. This meeting is also being broadcasted live by Sky Sports televsion.
There is no rest for the wicked, nor for Danny however, as he is then called into team action alongside his Birmingham Brummies teammates with the following early season schedule;
Monday 24th March Wolverhampton v Birmingham Elite League 7.30pm
Wednesday 26th March Birmingham v Belle Vue Elite League 7.30pm
Friday 28th March Coventry v Birmingham Elite League 7.30pm
Saturday 29th March Eastbourne v Birmingham Elite League 7.30pm
After that little lot to start the season, Danny should be 100% race sharp, badly in need of a rest and more than due a game of golf!
Danny would like to take this opportunity to thank his sponsors as he embarks on the 2014 season and they are in no particular order; RJ Warren Ltd, Peterborough Virtual Golf, Swerve Racewear, Fuchs Silkolene, Speedway Crime, Apico Factory Racing, Teng Tools, NEB Engineering, Clemco Designs and Milesey.
Your support is very much valued and appreciated.
Please take a look at the updated gallery on this website for a superb selection of images that have been kindly provided by one of the sports best photographers Steve Dixon. The images show some excellent portrait and action photos of Danny from the 2013 season including the Ben Fund Bonanza meeting on that freezing cold night at Berwick in March as well as from the British Final at Wolverhampton in May and the Grand Prix Challenge at Poole in August.
We will also be updating this website with some 2014 photography as soon as it is available.
Roll on the 2014 season!
