Good news from Short Track UK.
Aprilia UK have announced that they are backing a Two Rider Team in this year's Grand National UK Championship. The Team will be running 450 V twin RXV Machines, which have already been raced in the States with success.
We can also confirm that Glyn Pocklington and Adam Allott wil be the two riders chasing the title for Aprilia. Glyn, who finished 5th in last year's Championship said 'I'm confident that we can get the bikes working well. They have plenty of horse power, we've just got to get that power to the ground, which I'm sure we can do with a couple of test days.'
Adam also is excited by the prospect of riding a full season of Flattrack, saying 'Last year I was still riding speedway but this year I'm giving 100% to the Flattrack Championship and now we've got Aprilia on board I'm keener than ever.'
Aprilia are now the third manufacturer, along with Honda and Suzuki, backing riders in 2012 UK Championship.
Also, the first official practice of the year is 4 March, at Scunthorpe, 9.30 - 12.30. £30 for adults, £25 for juniors.
