Coventry had made a magnificent start to the season, winning 10 of their opening 12 fixtures of the season in all competitions - although most of the matches were close, as only twice had they reached the 50-point mark.
One of those rare defeats had come at Oxford just over 24 hours earlier in a Good Friday meeting which was dominated by ultra-dusty track conditions, the Silver Machine snatching victory when Lee Richardson fell in Heat 15.
The teams met once again at Brandon where the high emotions between the respective riders and managements was set to continue!
We hope you enjoy the look back.
VICTOR CHANDLER BEES: Billy Hamill, Billy Janniro, Lee Richardson, Ryan Fisher, Andreas Jonsson, Jason Bunyan, Stuart Robson. OXFORD SILVER MACHINE: Todd Wiltshire, Travis McGowan, Craig Boyce, Sebastian Ulamek, Nicki Pedersen, Jamie Smith, Charlie Gjedde.
