Ambitious plans to relaunch a Speedway franchise in Norwich are due to be unveiled later today.

The City last had a speedway team in the 1960s, when they were based at the Firs Stadium close to the airport now stands but plans are afoot to build a new speedway track at the Norfolk Showground.

A press conference is scheduled to take place later today.
