Bears’ Czech speedway star faces 28-day ban

THE Redcar Speedway management has been faced with a situation in which Czech Republic international Matej Kus is withholding his services and is now faced with a 28-day ban from British Speedway.

Boss Brian Havelock said: “We are obviously disappointed that Matej has taken this decision, especially as he has more than proved his ability in his debut season on Teesside.

“We are entitled to a guest facility and David Howe of the Scunthorpe Scorpions is lined up to ride for us in a re-arranged Premier League fixture at Newport next Wednesday.

“Hopefully this matter can be resolved.”
