Former Buxton Hitmen captain Dean Felton has been hard at work assembling a star cast for an upcoming fundraising event later this month.

Felton has spent the last three months putting together one of the strongest line-ups ever seen in Speedway for a meeting with a difference on Sunday September 29.

Top riders from the last four decades will be in attendance, racing a huge range of bikes from the different eras of speedway.

There are also other activities planned for the day which aims to raise money for the Hitmen who are in desperate need of an airfence ahead of the 2014 season.

The club hope to be able to celebrate their 20th anniversary next year but without an airfence installed that will not be possible.

Sponsorship for a rider or a heat is £50. Those interested are asked to get in touch with Dean or Jayne by emailing info@buxtonhitmen.co

The confirmed line-up for the special meeting includes: Gary O’Hare, Jan O Pedersen, Graham Jones, Tony Atkin, Dean Felton, Glyn Taylor, Alan Grahame, Rob Grant, Bernie Collier, Sam Ermolenko, Dave Harvey, Aidan Collins, Andrew Meredith, Martin Dixon, Ian Barney, Rob Hollinsworth, Jason Straughan and Graham Tattersall.
