  2. Would be good if clubs started showing older videos when the crowds were bigger. Probably difficult as most will be on VHS not dvd so will be harder to convert and upload, but still.

    Non existent, I'd say.
  4. Yesterday
  5. I' Don't many South Eastern Swedes catch a 2 hour ferry to the Baltic nations to do their weekly shop? Quite sensible. Lot's of Brit's do a booze cruise to France to stock up on wine. Poland seems cheap to Brit's, because your average product is cheaper, the same can be said for most of Europe, mostly due to less tax. Scandinavia & Iceland are quite the opposite.
  6. Hotels and flights do not have to refund because the GP is cancelled. If flying with Ryanair I think passengers can amend the flight without charge.

    And this outfit will have Premiership speedway when it returns and soon will the SGP and SON. Still they offered good money, just don't expect good coverage or scheduling.
  8. Madsen £500 more.

    I agree, Lambert is easily looking GP Class at the moment. Unfortunately Dan Bewley has been dropped from his team. The gulf is obvious. Lambert is scoring more heavily than plenty of current GP riders and doing it when in a poor team. He not getting any help team riding. Lebedevs an example.

    Surely as the club have taken their customers money it is their duty to keep season ticket holders updated continuously. Very poor PR A decent business looks after it's customers. The way things are going there won't be many left. Whatever happened to the regular newsletters that we used to get.

    There wont be any spectator sport to worry about unless they stop pissing about and open the economy up properly. They want the economy too sing and have only invited 25% of the choir.

    Great Yarmouth/norfolk

    Thats not a theory its a fact.. Peterborough greyhounds closed, Belle Vue greyhounds closed, Poole greyhounds yet to resume since the start back, thats all within the last month, Yarmouth are existing on i believe 2 streamed meetings per week at reduced fees, Towcester just re-opened 1 or maybe 2 meetings per week, how long can Greyhound Trainers and Owners exist on reduced income ?, so when you say theory no its facts.. Bookie owned tracks such as Monmore, Romford, Hove, Crayford are doing fine, its a few others such as who i mentioned that are really struggling big time.. luckily i think those that stage Speedway are not amongst them except for Poole..

    PENNIKET, Geoffrey (Geoff) Born: May 22, 1936, Merton, London, England,* Geoff had a career spanning over a decade and was based mainly in the south of the country. He was an armchair stylist and often under rated but could regularly turn in some decent performances against some of the leading riders in the sport. He started out as a rider in 1960 at Rye House and Rayleigh with his league debut coming for the Essex side the following season. He was understandably inconsistent in his debut year but showed what he could do with a paid maximum at home to Middlesbrough in mid-season and an 11 point score at Newcastle towards the end of the term. After spending the majority of the 1962 season without a team place Geoff joined New Cross and, after the mid-term closure of the ‘Rangers’, had a spell at Long Eaton before finally settling at Newport in 1964. It was at Somerton Park that Geoff really made his name and he was a popular member of the side that won the Provincial League Knock-Out Cup in the club’s first season. He continued that popularity in the British League with the ‘Wasps’ in 1965 and rode at the top level of speedway for the first time. A maximum against Wimbledon proved that he was a respected performer and, although he never made an international appearance or got near to reaching a World Final, he was the kind of rider that opponents knew they had been in a race with and were glad to have beaten. After leaving South Wales at the end of the 1966 season, Geoff’s career went into a gradual slide until he dropped into the Second Division with Long Eaton in 1969. He proved to be a great asset in that division, initially for the Station Road club and then for Romford and Workington, showing the way to the younger element and supplying some first class scoring in the process. Geoff’s career was sadly brought to an end by serious arm injuries suffered in a crash at his home Derwent Park track on May 14, 1971.

    Years? Robert is one year older. Bewley has stalled since his injury so unless he is able to get back on track with his potential then he can’t even be compared to the level Lambert has and is already achieving. lets hope for the future of GB he does tho.

    That's why pubs cant have music and I believe are banned from showing sport on TV

    Corona virus

    If lower league football starts -- speedway will too. Not sure of league names once you drop down pyramid but crowds of sub 2,000 are common outside the top 4 divisions.

    Rest of the GP series

    ANNOUNCEMENT tomorrow ...
  26. Terrible track. I wonder why they don't try and bank it or try something?
