Eastbourne will remember one of their former stars as they race for silverware.

The IT First Eagles will wear race jackets which honour the late Lee Richardson in the final of the National League play-offs.

They will do likewise in the Knockout Cup final, should they progress.

The tribute is the idea of Paul Goldsmith of sponsors IT First.

Richardson, from Hastings, led Eagles to the Elite League Knockout Cup in 2008 during his one season with his local track.

The jacket shows Richardson's logo and an image of him holding the trophy after Eagles finished the job by drawing the second leg of the final at Poole eight years ago.

His family have been invited to the home meetings.

Richardson died in a racing accident in Poland in May, 2012.
