Panthers ‘Rising Star’ Jordan Jenkins will take his place along with his Wolverhampton counterpart Leon Flint, and Leicester heat-leader Richard Lawson.

Jenkins has been struggling with a hand injury since a crash at Oxford last month but is confident of being fit to resume by the weekend and take his final rides at Alwalton after a very progressive season-and-a-half with the club.

Meanwhile the vastly experienced Lawson can list Peterborough as one of his former clubs, having made 19 league appearances for Panthers back in the 2011 season when he was doubling-up in the top-flight.

Along with Jenkins, Flint is another of GB’s bright prospects, having won both the British Under-19 and Under-21 titles last season, whilst last weekend he was victorious in Stuart Robson’s Farewell Meeting at Redcar.

The full line-up is close to completion and more names will be announced this week.

The club wish to remind supporters and organisations that some races remain available for sponsorship, including the meeting final.
