AUSSIE ace Zane Keleher remains hopeful of making his British debut this year and said: “The speedway world is working hard to make a season possible.”

Keleher has remained in the UK amid the coronavirus pandemic, having travelled from Down Under ahead of the campaign.

Racing in Poland is set to go ahead behind closed doors from June 12 but British speedway is “unlikely” to resume with no spectators.

Nevertheless, Keleher is hopeful racing can commence at some point this season.

Writing on his official newsletter, the Rockhampton-born star said: “Things are starting to turn around here in the UK as the government have announced a plan moving forward to lift lockdown restrictions and slowly get back to some normality over the next few months.

“The speedway world is working hard to make a season possible, with the guidelines the government have announced.

“I have been keeping extremely busy, working on my own projects for Z22 Developments, training via online programs from my Australian trainer and keeping my skills sharp on my mountain bike.

“It’s looking promising and fingers crossed we will race in the latter half of this year.”
