ROY BITMEAD MEMORIAL – THIS FRIDAY NIGHT AT SIDEWINDERS, THE FINAL HIT OUT BEFORE THE 125cc AUSTRALIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS!
Nominations are now CLOSED for the 2022 ROY BITMEAD MEMORIAL, one of the iconic events held each summer at Sidewinders U16 Junior Speedway each summer – because the event is on THIS COMING Friday night – March 4!
The Memorial Shield honours Roy Bitmead, one of the Sidewinders originals who, along with Graham Baker, had the vision and foresight to build a stand-alone junior speedway track and club (Sidewinders) more than 40 years ago in Wingfield, and chances are the 2022 running will be another epic event in the history of the Shield!
And, as always, the Bitmead family will be on hand to pay tribute to their patriarch, and celebrate all he did, not only for his family, but for all generations of the Sidewinders family!
