Always a great day at the EoES, decent facilities and hopefully a decent track.

Admission prices are £20 adults, £15 concessions, Children 5-15 £4 and Under 5 free. Programme £4.

All 11 teams will race off over 22 heats before the top four go into a 12-race final to establish the champions.

The action starts at 2pm with a parade at 1.45 and gates open at 12.30.

Should be a cracking meeting; Leicester and Glasgow look strong favourites but a few other teams have strong looking 4's and plenty of track specialists about.

Although Brummies will go with a much weakened 4 will be going as it's a showcase day for the Championship on a good race track that for once is neutral.

Very complicated format in first part with each rider from each Team having 2 rides in a 22 Heat semi Final.

Top 4 Teams then progress to a 12 Heat Final with each of the 4 riders having 3 rides.

Will suit Clubs with strong top ends

I would predict in order-:

Glasgow; Leicester;  Sheffield and Somerset in Final with Newcastle; Redcar ; Eastbourne as biggest dangers.

spelling "strong"

Maybe it depends on when the riders show up If they show up since there seems to be no mention anywhere of who is riding in each team.

Pretty poor considering it is a'major' shared event.

(Know from Edinburgh's page their team is Wells, Heeps, Anderson & Pickering)

With crayons as they are obviously not allowed sharp objects such as pencils
