Stars ready to line up for Darcy

Mar 162017

The great and the good of World Speedway will line up for the inaugural Darcy Ward Invitational on Friday (March 24) as the Aussie star continues his rehabilitation from a career-ending spinal injury.

Darcy, one of the greatest talents to ever ride a Speedway bike, has worked hard over the Winter months to put together an awesome field of riders who will line up at Poole, England on Friday looking to start the season with a bang.

“I am so pleased that my meeting is being held at Poole,” said Darcy.  “The town has become my second home, and the Poole fans are second to none in my book. I have been lucky to make many friends with the local people who have helped me enormously since my accident.”

“I really can’t thank the riders enough for taking the time to turn out on my behalf and I count myself very fortunate to have assembled such a high class field for what promises to be a great night’s racing.”


Money raised from the meeting will go towards Darcy’s rehab fund, while 50p from each admission ticket will also go towards British charity Comic Relief. For more information on Darcy’s foundation or the meeting itself head to
