Huntingdon speedway star Danny King has been named in the Great Squad for the World Cup.

The recently-crowned British champion features in a 10-man provisional party from which GB boss Alun Rossiter will name his final four-man team.

Great Britain are seeded directly into the World Cup final as hosts.

It takes place at the National Speedway Stadium in Manchester - the scene of King’s British title triumph earlier this month - on Saturday, July 30.
