The Aces were without Cyril Maidment and promoted Jim Yacoby to the team with Dave Schofield taking his place at reserve. Other promoters had spent the winter months arguing that the Aces should release riders to enable other sides to strengthen with Sandor Levai the main target and indeed Frank Varey was in a major predicament and unable to name a full team. Already tracking Eric Boocock as a guest replacement for the missing Clive Featherby and David Crane who had both elected to join local track King's Lynn, we were also without Jack Kitchen and called upon australian Gordon Guasco as a last minute substitute.
