Following uncertainty about the future of the Birmingham Brummies, there’s great news with confirmation that the speedway club will be riding again next season after a deal was agreed for its purchase from owners David and Peter Mason.

Manager Laurence Rogers confirmed that three consortiums expressed an interest in buying the club. Nigel Tolley, on behalf of the winning consortium made the following statement:


“Naturally the four directors of the company, Birmingham Speedway 2022 Ltd, have made major investment in purchasing the club and its assets but that is just the start and there will need to be considerably more investment,” he said. “We are actively seeking the sponsorship and advertising that will help put the club on a firm footing but, one of the most important aspects, is the involvement of the supporters.

“The consortium have been touched and delighted by the share application pledges received so far and the faith shown by the supporters in what we are trying to do. The Directors have agreed that the company is a not for profit venture and any profits made will be reinvested in the club with all supporters having the opportunity to be part of it – we simply can’t do it without them.”

The deal agreed for the purchase of the club from outgoing owners David and Peter Mason - approved by British Speedway Promoters Ltd – means that the Brummies will take their place in the 2022 Championship season.
