Fen Tigers manager Malcolm Vasey said: “I think we have all been waiting for this moment when we return to competitive racing for many months now, and this should be an excellent meeting to start our season
“We have full respect for a Leicester team full of exciting young talent, but what I have seen from our lads to date give me every confidence that we are up to the task.”
