Birmingham Brummies have switched their racenight from a Thursday to Wednesdays.

Brummies officials have made the decision to switch from their current Thursday race night after asking for feedback on an internet forum.

And joint owner Alan Phillips, who is preparing for his second season at the club alongside business colleague Chris Luty, says he hopes the move proves popular with the fans.

Phillips is also keen to avoid a clash with Premier League fixtures with the possibility of signing riders to double-up in the top two leagues.

He said: "I am very conscious of the need to take into account the views of supporters and there is no doubt that a switch back to Wednesday evenings is more popular and the majority choice.

"Accordingly, I have decided to change back to our previous Wednesday evening arrangement. I'm also conscious that there is less likelihood of Wednesdays clashing with any Premier League meetings so the decision was fairly easy."

The news does mean that Ben Barker, who has signed for Premier League Ipswich Witches who race on a Thursday, could now double-up again at Perry Barr.
