Belle Vue’s Knock Out Cup Quarter Final comes to a head on Monday, June 18 when the Rentruck Aces take on Wolverhampton in the Black Country, where they will defend a hefty 24-point lead.
The Midlanders were outclassed in the Mancunian leg of the battle back in May, going down 57-33 at the National Speedway Stadium and leaving themselves with a mountain to climb at Monmore.
But even despite their sizeable advantage, the Rentruck Aces are far from complacent about the situation and are keeping in mind the strength of the Parrys International Wolves at home.
New Belle Vue signing Jason Garrity says he’s determined to prove the club management’s faith in him is not misplaced and has affirmed his belief that the men from Manchester can carry through.
He said: “I feel I’ve been riding well this year, but only getting on the bike once or twice a week just isn’t enough and so I’m very grateful to Belle Vue for giving me the chance to ride for the club.
“I want to prove to everyone that I’m capable and it goes without saying that I’m well up for challenge, and starting things off at Wolverhampton couldn’t have been a better meeting for me.
“It’s a technical track compared to Belle Vue so I’ve sent a couple of my engines off to get them prepped purposefully for this and Rye House because I want to do my best for the team.
“The lads put in a great effort in the first leg to come away with such a big lead but Wolves are very strong at home so we’ll all need to pile in the points to make sure we carry through to the semis.”
The Rentruck Aces resume their travels after Monmore with a visit to Rye House on Wednesday June 20 before the Cool Running Colts face Birmingham at home on Friday June 22.
Tickets for the National League home meeting are now available online at www.bellevueaces.co and at the stadium box office on race night.
