The series, previously known as the Under-15 Championship, is run under the control of Great Britain Under-21 manager Neil Vatcher and is open to any British rider under the age of 16. The series will be staged at eight different venues during the 2019 season. There are three classes catered for, with a British Championship at 500cc and 250cc levels, and a 125cc support class. It’s a chance for fans to see the future of British speedway on a bumper day for speedway in Suffolk, with 43 heats of Youth Championship action following 15 heats of Premiership speedway.
