Young Lions are delighted to have accepted an invitation from Sheffield Speedway to compete at the Yorkshire Venue on Thursday 23rd July for the 125cc/150cc class to compete for the David Cobham memorial trophy.
Neil Vatcher said, “Mr David Cobham who was a massive British Speedway fan sadly passed away last Christmas, was a big fan of the British Youth Speedway, and was always keen to support the future stars of British Speedway.
After his sad passing, Mr Cobham’s wife Katie and daughter Eva wanted to remember David’s name and thought there was no better way than to support his passion, and put on a series of races at the Sheffield venue, for the young British hopefuls to compete for the Memorial Trophy in his name.”
Young Lions would like to thank Katie and Eva for the invitation, and who ever wins the Trophy, we are sure that Mr Cobham will be very proud to see four of the Stars of tomorrow all racing for the prestige of being the first name on the David Cobham Memorial Trophy.
