The Excalibur Communications Robins will go to Lakeside on Monday, March 25, for their first Elite League meeting of the season.

The opening meeting of the season at Blunsdon is the Bob Kilby Memorial meeting on Thursday, March 14.

Club co-owner Gary Patchett said: “This is a very exciting way for us to start the season and we’re delighted to be appearing on Sky as reigning champions.

“The March 25 fixture for TV had to be between two clubs without any GP riders because of the New Zealand Grand Prix that weekend – and under current plans both Lakeside and ourselves fall into that category.”
