On finding out that the event was a benefit event for ex-rider , Ricky Ashworth, who suffered life changing injuries and brain damage in a speedway crash in August 2013, Paul agreed with Ian Hunter , of Sheffield Window Centre and Sheffield Speedway that we would charge £3 for each car with the full proceeds going to Ricky's fund.
It would be great if this offer was matched by the owner of the Owlerton stadium car park as well, giving the days car park takings and boosting the funds .
