Great Britain star Craig Cook has been a handed a 12-day ban for his role in the fracas between Glasgow and Eastbourne at Arlington on August 3.

Videos emerged on social media of Cook getting involved in an altercation with a member of the Eastbourne track staff on a night which saw the red mist well and truly descend in Sussex.

Despite facing time off from his King’s Lynn and Tigers duties, the Cumbrian is eligible to make his track comeback at the GP Challenge in Gorican on August 24 – the day after his suspension ends.

A top three finish in Croatia will earn him a return ticket for the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series for 2020.

Cook was hit with the ban after being deemed by the Speedway Control Bureau to have breached Speedway Regulation 3.2.8 which prevents “Any act which is violent, threatening or abusive nature to any official, rider or any other person.”

Also suspended are Eastbourne star Edward Kennett and Cook’s Tigers team mate Claus Vissing, who both received 10-day bans.
