Scott Wilson gives take on threat to British Speedway third tier

Nov 22, 2023 | Business support hub, TC news

This article features Thomson Cooper Accounts Manager Scott Wilson (manager of the Edinburgh Monarchs), who appeared in Speedway Star, the world’s premier speedway magazine which is produced in the UK and issued weekly. In the November 2023 issue, Scott discussed the future of the current structure of the sports’ National Development League with James Black, one of the Star’s correspondents.

In brief, British Speedway has three tiers of professional league racing. The third tier is the National Development League, where Scott began his managerial career this season. The 2023 season finished in the last few weeks and there are major concerns over whether the third tier will continue in its present form for the 2024 season. The article shared Scott’s perspective on this issue, and the long-term impact on speedway in Britain if the Development tier ceases to exist. It also briefly discusses two teams Scott is heavily involved in, the Edinburgh Monarchs youth academy ( who finished mid-table, 5th out of 8 teams in 2023) and Junior League team, the West Lothian Wildcats, who won the Northern Junior League.
