Shorttrack motorcycling racing returns to Arena UK on Saturday (February 23).

Shorttrack UK have signed two major names to feature in a double header at the Allington venue.

England take on the Rest of the World at 1pm with Edward Kennett taking his place for England in the first team event of the Great Indoors Shorttrack Series.

International speedway rider Kennett is no stranger to racing indoors at speedway or shorttrack, and has returned from the Speedway Monster meeting in the USA.

Riding for the Rest of the World team will be Fabrizio Vesprini, the 2012 Flat Track World Cup champion. The Italian is a former ice racer and speedway rider. He will be lining up alongside Aussies Kevin Doolan and Damian Koppe.

All the riders will also be among those contesting the second meeting of the day, the International Shorttrack Arena Championship, at 6.30pm.

Entry includes access to a licensed bar, grandstand, trade stands and pit walkabout.

To book tickets for one or both meetings visit or call 01673 878426. Limited seats are available on the day, cash only.
