CYCLE SPEEDWAY: Coventry stage all-star event.
Sixteen of the sport's top track masters will be lining up, including Coventry's Devlins Newsagents' Ray Oliver, a former world champion.
Coventry's brilliant 15-year-old pin-up boy Matthew Lawrence carries the Devlins Newsagents colours in the semi-finals of the British junior individual championships, also at Hearsall Common tomorrow (12.30pm).
The junior event will act as a curtain raiser for the senior championships and Lawrence is determined to qualify for the British junior final, at Wolverhampton on Bank Holiday Monday.
He will be joined in semi-final action by Devlins newsagent team mate Karl Lerigo, aged 16.
Coventry's rising star Ben Davies lines up in the Sandwell semi-final.
