It was not a good night for Oxford Silver Machine fans as both teams were defeated in action last night.

The Silver Machine were soundly beaten at Arena Essex, and never looked like winners, although there was always a hope that they would hang on to their eleven point lead to claim the bonus point. In the end that was not to be as the home side were just too strong on the night. Greg Hancock top scored with sixteen points.

Moving North to Stoke, and the spitfires made it a double over the Academy, as they also won at Sandy lane a couple of months ago. Oxford led for much of the evening but in a tense last heat decider the home side just came out on top.

A double header of Conference League action at Sandy Lane this Friday sees them take on Boston and Newcastle. Holders of re-admission tickets from the last double header, where one match was rained off, can get in on Friday evening for the price of a single match. A reminder that the action gets underway at the earlier time of 7.15pm.

With a big question mark over the future of Oxford Speedway, Nigel Wagstaff will attend the SOS Barbecue on Saturday night where he will take part in a question and answer session to explain his position.
