KMA Forklifts also have a considerable link with the history of Mildenhall Speedway in the shape of Mick Hines who runs KMA Forklifts with his son Melvyn. Many older Fen Tigers supporters will remember Mick being the final piece of the jigsaw, as the club went on to win their first league title in 1979. Hines stepped down from the Gulf British League with Wimbledon to ride in the National League and his experience and support to the younger riders was highly influential in the club claiming that famous first piece of silverware.

Promoter Kevin Jolly was pleased to welcome his newest sponsor on board – he said “This is another piece of excellent news in what has been a very positive winter for us, it is a pleasure to welcome KMA Forklifts to the club and I look forward to seeing Mick and Melvyn at Mildenhall whenever they are able.

I feel we have a very good looking side this season, a strong backroom team and with sponsorship going particularly well everything points to a good year for the club”
