Ches­sell aim­ing to get back on right track with dou­ble book­ing

Leek Post & Times - - SPORT - NEIL EVANS

EA­GER to make up for lost time af­ter two sea­sons on the side­lines - one of his own vo­li­tion as he took time out of speed­way and an­other through a se­ri­ous leg in­jury - Luke Ches­sell will dou­ble up dur­ing the 2019 sea­son af­ter be­ing of­fered a team place for Cham­pi­onship side Glas­gow. Ches­sell, who said that turn­ing down Ber­wick on the eve of the 2017 sea­son was one of his big re­grets in rac­ing, has jumped at the chance of join­ing the pow­er­house Scot­tish club along­side his du­ties with Stoke Pot­ters. “I can’t deny it wasn’t a bit of a sur­prise to get the call, but it’s the sort of in­vi­ta­tion that you don’t turn down,” said the Swin­don-born racer whose fa­ther and un­cles com­peted in the sport. “I al­ways re­gret­ted that the move to Ber­wick didn’t hap­pen, but I just needed to get away and take time out of the sport at that stage. I sat out that sea­son and spent a lot of time with Adam (Ex­tance) rac­ing all over the place. “Then I was due to race for Stoke last sea­son, but as you all know I had that bad in­jury when rac­ing in Amer­ica and it took far longer to re­cover than I had hoped. I had planned to be back be­fore the sea­son ended, but the in­ten­tion was al­ways to try to find a team place for next year. “Join­ing Stoke will suit me just fine. But hav­ing a dou­bling-up di­ary to look for­ward to can only help me get back in to shape and fit­ness. It’s ex­cit­ing times.” Mean­while, Stoke have con­firmed that 2019 sea­son tick­ets will be held at 2018 prices and that tick­ets are now on sale. Pot­ters pro­moter Dave Tat­tum com­mented: “We have had a long chat and think about things and we as a pro­mo­tion have de­cided to hold sea­son tick­ets prices at 2018 lev­els and they will be avail­able un­til the end of Fe­bru­ary. It is the first time in while sup­port­ers have known the whole side prior to Christ­mas and sup­port­ers can see who will be rid­ing for us. We feel that sea­son tick­ets are value for money and sup­port­ers will see that this is a team that will be chal­leng­ing for hon­ours and I hope sup­port­ers will back us in our quest to bring sil­ver­ware back to Loomer Road in 2019.” Ticket prices: Adults: £180; Se­nior Cit­i­zens: £155 in­clud­ing pro­gramme. Sea­son Tick­ets can be or­dered by phone, us­ing 07789 028003.
