Co-promoter Mike Bellerby insists the Eagles are financially sound as they embark on their new campaign.

The car dealership Lifestyle Europe remain their main sponsor while work off the track during the close season has also helped to boost the coffers.

Last season the attendance at Arlington averaged around the 1,000 mark and it’s a figure the club hope to boost with social media campaigns, reduced tickets prices and most importantly, favourable results on the track.

Bellerby said, “We have done what we can in reducing ticket prices.

“The cost of a family ticket has come down as have admission prices for children aged between six and 15 which will be as little as £3 with the correct voucher.

“We are all very optimistic and very impressed with the riders commitment and determination to make this a successful season.

“Everything about the club is set-up to put us in a position to win trophies, that is what we are about.

“Using social media and other areas, we have great opportunities to get our message out and try to increase our fan base.

“There are many ways to do that these days and we have to use all that is available to us.”
