    The usual argument of the depressive. Why make things worse than they are? Realism for you might be agonising for others desperate for a return to normality. Why make it worse?

    I see people are abusing the current situation to promote their own private agendas. The sarcasm from one does suggest desperation. You are free to advance individual racing instead of teams or putting together composite meetings, despite there being clear evidence that apart from SGPs individual racing is box-office poison and that mixed meetings please none and annoy all. The situation is serious but making the sport profoundly worse would be suicidal. I shall leave you both to it. Even in self-isolation there simply isn't enough time. These ideas have been tried - and failed and no amount of sarcasm will change that.

    The objector could claim that but I believe they were a minor consideration. Bear in mind I've had a few involvements with the prospective promoter. Don't believe all you read in the press.

    The majority of fans want a swiftly run meeting. Standing around for hours doesent appeal to everyone. That's what i like about football, it runs like clockwork.

    2010 was one of those seasons when the team who finished top of the table was declared Champions (and rightly so). However, there were also promotion / relegation play-offs, which Newcastle won (as mentioned in my earlier post). I think 2009 was also run the same way (KL finished top = Champions but Monarchs won the play-offs before losing to Belle Vue). Golden Heats were 2009. One of the tensest evenings ever at sunny Armadale. Good old Matthew Wethers! And I'm fine Sir. Just keeping my head down. Stay safe

    I am happy to be 'shot down in flames' and was happy to accept, at nearly 62, my memory is starting to fail, however, below is an exert from from Eastern Daily Press dated 29th October, 2013: Tim East, county councillor for Costessey, said: “I’m not delighted that the project is not going forward because I am a supporter of speedway coming back to the city, but the showground was an inappropriate location. That is what has caused this scheme to fall by the wayside. “It’s sad, but it’s not a viable location, in the middle of potentially three and a half thousand houses. Any objector developing those house would have objected to it.”

    Yes it does and Exeter has one too - outskirts of town and acres of room. I suppose it has been explored though
  24. I have Mildenhall winning this fixture by 14-10 - can you confirm 10-14 is correct?

    Showgrounds and racecourses would seemingly make ideal venues for speedway given the plentiful car parking and a track would take up a little corner of such venues. Peterborough certainly is in my opinion one of the best speedway venues anywhere. The Norfolk Showground should (in a perfect world) ) have been staging speedway from 1965 onwards after the Firs shut in 1964 but for years the Norfolk agricultural society were dead against it. The efforts made a decade ago looked very good but needed person(s) with serious financial clout behind them to make it happen. Has Cornwall got a Showground or racecourse?

    Hmm. I think you've added 2 and 2 and got five there Rob. I understand it's practically difficult to alternate sports on the track. I'm talking about 60-90mins slots per sport, then the next sport. Have your pint, have a look, maybe see what other entertainments kicking about and enjoy the atmosphere with a bigger weekend crowd. Of course, I very much doubt any of this will happen, nor even be attempted. Much more likely - almost certain - is we continue to carry on as normal with our 50-80yr old hardcore and keep the likes of The Third Man happy, serving up the same old midweek speedway model and sleepwalk into oblivion.
