The move comes with the Warriors hoping to stage a variety of track events out of the Smallbrook Stadium in the future.

Warriors' 'Shale Track Racing Club' will be open for membership for a wide-range of race classes to take place on the largest shale circuit in the country from this summer through their newly formed association with NORA Motorsport.

Isle of Wight club co-owner Barry Bishop believes the move will see greater rider and supporter attraction than ever before.

He said: ‘Martin (Widman; co-owner) and I are delighted to be able to extend the reach of shale track racing to a far greater rider and fan base than ever before with the support of NORA Motorsport.

‘We will now be able to develop riders in many different shale track classes and incorporate them into our fabulous summer spectacular race series.

‘Again, we cannot wait to welcome fans, riders and sponsors once more to Smallbrook for a non-stop feast of entertainment and further details will be released in due course.’

The club have since approached French officials with a view to becoming part of the Ligue National de Speedway division in the future.

Wightlink Warriors are now licenced with NORA Motorsport and following the launch of the 'Warriors Shale Track Racing Club', a host of different race classes could be on offer when racing resumes this summer.
