The final four riders to compete in the Somerset Rebels Christmas Cracker speedway meeting could be announced tomorrow night.

The Rebels are staging the Salt Express-sponsored meeting at the Oaktree Arena on December 28, and 12 of the 16 riders have already been confirmed.

Somerset duo James Wright and Kyle Newman will line up against top stars including Ben Barker, Lewis Bridger and Ricky Ashworth.

It is hoped the final four riders will be announced at Thursday's Somerset Riders’ Equipment Fund social evening at the Oaktree.

Rebels promoter Debbie Hancock said: "Garry May, who is co-ordinating the meeting, was away on a well deserved holiday last week, and there were just a couple of riders he needed to check on upon his return in order to complete the field.

“I would imagine that by the time Thursday night’s event comes around that would have been sorted out and we can reveal the names of the last four riders and confirm the full line-up."

Tickets for the Christmas Cracker meeting will be on sale at the SREF social evening, and also at the track shop this Saturday and Sunday from 10.30am to 2pm.

Fans from further afield can also buy tickets by sending an SAE and a cheque (made payable to Somerset Speedway 2011 Ltd) covering the cost of the tickets they need.

Tickets will cost £16 for adults, £12 for concessions and £4 for juniors aged between 12 and 16. Children aged 11 and under will get in for free if accompanied by a paying adult (maximum of two children per adult).

Family tickets, for two adults and two juniors, will also be available for £36.
