Sunday marks the start of a new era as the newest track in the country at the Camarthen Showground opens its doors to speedway at 3pm this Sunday. The go-ahead came last Friday as SCB Manager Ronnie Allan gave the thumbs up to the Camarthen Dragons.

Club Chairman Nigel Meakins though remains a worried man: "When heat one comes to the line on Sunday I'll be a relieved man. Also once I've seen the spectators coming in then I may just start to relax. As it is at the moment I think the 'men in white coats' may have to take me away! I never imagined how stressful this was going to be."

"Mr Allan was thankfully very impressed by what he saw and commented it was just like Somerset. Well we hope we can do one thing our friends at Highbridge have done and that is to attract the crowds they do. I know that there will be a lot of true speedway fans down on Sunday just to be there at a new track's opening meeting but it is the locals that we need to get to come and hopefully in large numbers."

"We couldn't have wished for a better start than winning our first match down at Welsh 'rivals' Newport on Easter Monday but we now have to reproduce this on our home track. Winning at home will be paramount to attracting the regulars. I think that we've put together an attractive side capable of doing the business so it's down to them to bring home the bacon."

"In Dean Felton, Craig Taylor and Shane Colvin we have a solid heat leader trio and young David Gough is a gilt edged prospect with rookie Darren Pugh the one to watch. He got paid 10 on his debut at Newport on a borrowed bike and he had a right purler of a fall in his second ride but bounced back to win his first ever race."

"For the real purists our clash with the youthful Kings Lynn side plus the second half 6 heat, four man challenge against Somerset should be enough to entice them down the M4 to the Camarthen Showground. It also allows us to give all of our squad a run out so that we can have a close look at them all and it's up to each and every one of them to make us take note of them."
