THE 28th Peter Craven Memorial field is now complete, and Belle Vue Speedway is excited to announce 2012 World Speedway Champion, Australian Chris Holder is the man to fill the spot. 

It will be a rare chance for supporters to see the Sydney native in action in the UK in 2023, and he has won many major titles and championships in his extensive career.

As a competitor, Holder has the opportunity to add his name to the prestigious Peter Craven Memorial Trophy and will be another to watch on the night as a genuine contender.

Belle Vue CEO Mark Lemon said: “This will be Holder’s first Peter Craven Memorial meeting and his only appearance he will make in this country for some time. 

“With Holder the final rider we announce, it really highlights the calibre of field the Peter Craven Memorial warrants and regularly attracts.” 

“Through his Team Australia commitments, he is familiar with the National Speedway Stadium and has put in some thoroughly entertaining performances here in the past.

“Overall, we are very happy with the field we have put together for this year’s meeting. It’s probably one of the best line ups we’ve ever had. 

“I am personally excited about seeing the action unfold on the 20th of March.”

Meeting tickets are now available to purchase online at bellevue-speedway.com, and race day hospitality is available to book through our online shop.
