Quartet Completes Craven Opener
The classy line-up for Belle Vue's highly anticipated season opener, the 2017 Peter Craven Memorial, is now complete following confirmation of the final four names by club management.
Josh Grajczonek & Troy Batchelor
Queenslander Grajczonek is a man with a rich collection of stints with the Aces stretching back to 2009, while this year he continues his extensive tenure with top flight newcomers the Rebels.
After typically serving the more southerly clubs, double Aussie Longtrack Champ Todd Kurtz, elder brother of Poole star Brady, is relishing the challenge brought about by his move north to Sheffield.
His fellow countryman Troy Batchelor, who boasts quite the impressive Grand Prix record, is also keen to kick off the season with a bang after rejoining King's Lynn for a second successive season
The official draw for the 2017 Peter Craven Memorial will take place at the club's upcoming 'Shakedown' event scheduled for Friday March 24th, 7:30pm at the National Speedway Stadium.
Members of the Belle Vue Aces and the Belle Vue Colts, plus team boss Mark Lemon, will also be present on the night, giving fans a unique opportunity to get a pre-season glimpse at the riders.
Tickets for the Belle Vue Shakedown on March 24th and the 2017 Peter Craven Memorial on April 1st are now available online via the club website. For more information, visit www.bellevueaces.co.
