The Oaktree Arena, home to the 'Cases' Somerset Rebels, will be staging an out of season individual meeting on Friday 28th December, the 'Somerset Rebels Christmas Cracker,' the meeting being sponsored by local company Salt Express, who are also team partners of the Rebels, and, somewhat appropriately given when the meeting is taking place, are one of the UK's leading salt suppliers and distributors, including that for snow and ice clearance.

The format of the meeting will be that of 16 riders competing over 20 heats for the title, though as meeting co-ordinator Garry May, co-promoter for the Somerset Rebels, explains, that may well be extended to include a semi-final and a Grand Final;

"Our initial plans are for a traditional 16 rider, 20 heat format, but depending on how things progress with the planning and organisation of the meeting we could well add in a semi-final and Grand Final, which will bring added excitement to the event."

"We have already had many riders including some from the Elite League verbally agree to ride in the meeting, and we might even have a rider competing who, to the best of my knowledge, has never ridden speedway in the UK before."

"Names of those who will be taking part will be released as and when we have received back firm confirmations, these being announced on the Somerset Rebels website and in Speedway Star."

"We are very pleased to have Salt Express as Meeting Sponsors, they have been very supportive of the Rebels in 2012, their first season as a team partner, and there will be rider and heat sponsorship packages available, details of which will be announced very shortly."

"The actual meeting will get underway at 7pm, but we are looking to make it more of an event than just the meeting itself, with things such as a collector's fayre and other attractions, so that fans can arrive early and make more of an afternoon and evening of it, and again more details of these added attractions will be released over the course of the next few weeks."
