PETERBOROUGH Speedway have announced their 2013 Elite League fixtures.

And in a welcome move, the Readypower Panthers have confirmed the majority of home matches will take place on Friday evenings, which it is hoped will enable families to attend on a regular basis.

Panthers’ Elite League campaign kicks off in mouth-watering fashion with a home and away local derby against rivals King’s Lynn on Good Friday (March 29), with the Showground fixture taking place in the afternoon at 2pm.

Prior to that, the club expect to launch the season with a Challenge match, details of which should be available in the near future.

Another eagerly-awaited double header features the now-traditional clashes with Coventry, which this time take place on Spring Bank Holiday (May 27).

Reigning Elite League Champions Swindon will make two visits to the Showground, including an early-season clash on April 12 whilst King’s Lynn, Coventry, Belle Vue and Eastbourne are the other clubs to face the Panthers twice at home and twice away.

The visit of Poole, who have topped the Elite League table ahead of the play-offs for the past three years and include World Champion Chris Holder, is scheduled for Friday May 9, and Peterborough are delighted to once again have been chosen as the staging venue for the Premier League Fours on Sunday July 14.
