THE top 250cc rider in the Fenland Grass Track Club's new season will be presented with a new JRM engine thanks to a new sponsorship deal.

For the new 2007 season, the club has secured two new deals with Alan Bellham Speedway Services Ltd, of Terrington St Clement, who import Jawa (now known as JRM) racing engines and products into the country.

The newly developed 250cc engine has now been presented to the Fenland Grass Track Club and it will become the top prize in a series of events that will be run by the club in the three meetings to be raced in 2007.

Both the engine, and the crown of JRM 250cc Challenge Series champion, will be awarded to the top-scoring 250cc solo rider and should ensure a good standard of competitors at the meetings.
