Out of interest, how has Craig Cook even got a testimonial?

Got to have at least 10 year in speedway then can apply or be nominated for a testimonial so any Tom dick and Harry speedway rider can have one, maybe the ones in most need of money do apply for one !!!

i  think it has to be 10 yrs of unbroken service  to speedway and to have not asked for a transfer away from a club .richard lawson started before craig , but somewhere down the line his service to speedway was deemed to have been broken . i.e.asked to leave the clubs he rode for .

I cannot for the life of me understand why Craig is not promoting this like mad ?  I have just this minute checked on his website, and there doesnt seem to be ANY MENTION of it !

Does he want a testimonial or not ? Its now just over ONE WEEK AWAY and as far as I can see there is TOTAL SILENCE regarding things like obtaining advance tickets and intended lineups etc. I spoke to Glasgow Speedway who said (as apparently with all testimonials), they are not involved in any way with ticket sales for Craigs do. They suggested I looked at his website, which as I said previously, doesnt have any mention about it !

I fear this event will either not go ahead, or at least, will be severely under attended !

Hardly total silence! It's been promoted all over twitter for a good few months now, and retweeted by Glasgow, Edinburgh etc. 

Have seen loads of stuff on there about Rider sponsorship packages, Heat sponsorship, Mascot packages, Pin badges, Tickets and can be all be bought online on his website, tickets include a free easter egg and programme if bought online!

Craig is by far the most active rider in the UK in regards of Promoting himself on Social media and has a big following on there, i'm sure something special is lined up to announce the line up.

The advertisement that's been posted and that's also in the Speedway star offers an idea of who will be riding i'd say.

It may well be promoted via twitter etc but this seams to be begging for sponsorship, myself and most other people would like to see a potential line up with some/all riders named, then we can decide to travel hundreds of miles to potentially support this meeting, Has anyone !! got any names PLEASE

Think Easter Sunday is a very big day in Poland for speedway so not many riders will be available
