Swindon Speedway is pleased to announce the introduction of a consortium of local businessmen to the Club and in turn the formation of a Board of Directors to assist with the running and promotion of the Robins.
Mike Bowden will be the club’s Chief Executive Officer, Per-Axel Warensjo will become Financial Director with current owner Terry Russell becoming the club’s Chairman whilst remaining the major shareholder in Swindon Speedway.
These developments within the club are seen as a big step forward by Terry Russell. He said: “It is something that I have wanted to see happen for some time now.
“Local business people at the head of the club to help promote in and around Swindon is fantastic news and can only move the club forward. It allows Alun Rossiter and Colin Pratt to focus on team matters and B.S.P.A matters whilst the business side of the club is being well looked after.
“I’m looking forward to working with Mike and the consortium and I’m excited by the setup that can push the Club forward as we move into a new era.”
Mike Bowden said: “I have been an avid speedway fan since the age of 15 – my first meeting coincidentally being at Rye House on the day Colin Pratt made his debut as a team manager. I look forward to working with Terry and his team and doing all I can to ensure the Swindon Robins continue to be a strong, successful and ever popular feature of our town.”
