    Guardian article today

    Okay, perhaps some of you do have your head in the sand - or at least can't comprehend what I said. Maybe that was a little harsh of me, but... How many actual speedway "supporters" are there left in Britain? I'm not talking about "ex-supporters". I'm not talking about new ones or potential ones? Even if every real, existing supporter in the UK attended live speedway, they alone would not be able to save British speedway. Look at the BSF... I am a real supporter with a life-long love of the sport, but I am one of several on here who physically CAN'T attend. There are a number on here who CAN attend, but WON'T. I am reluctant to include those as real supporters (they support speedway as it was 20 or 30 years ago - not the modern game), but being the nice guy that I am, I will include those as real and existing supporters. How many of those are there? If every one of those clubbed together and bought a minibus (that's how few of them there really are), and went to speedway in the UK at EVERY AVAILABLE OPPORTUNITY, they wouldn't be able to save ONE track, let alone the sport as a whole. Look at the TV viewing figures that were mentioned in the article? If every one of those were a weekly speedway-goer, they couldn't save the sport alone. The sad fact is that there are not enough current speedway supporters in the UK to keep the sport afloat without a major reconstruction, major cash injection, and most importantly, a massive influx of NEW supporters. Which is why I said that "we supporters" can do nothing to stop the rot. And that is the sad reality... Steve
  9. Comets fans really turned up in numbers , probably more than a Workington league meeting.!!
  10. Jenga, would think one of the reasons my self and around another 100 or so comets fans traveled to support Ben was that it was on Saturday afternoon, same goes for other fans who traveled, and could get home at a decent time

    Bomber was simply terrific tonight for the Witches tonight at Leicester Thanks very much Buster

    Leicester v Ipswich Inter League Challenge 23.04.19

    Yes thank you very much - he was rather good 2 sublime passes that you really wouldnt have thought possible
  19. Polish riders not welcome at Championship tracks, remember.

    Peterborough Panthers 2019

    What's the source for that? Neither club website or the BSPA site give a time.

    Ipswich 2019

    Decent solid performance tonight with promising rides from every rider Bomber was a class apart with a couple of sublime passes (even more commendable given the track) Impressed with Jake and Cam generally and Richard finished strongly Danny seemed a little subdued but thats not unexpected David had a tough start but had a encouraging race win Drew didnt look totally comfortable but scored well and great to see him with a Witch on his chest Only slight disappointment was the lack of any victory parade. Quite a number of Witches fans had travelled and deserved some acknowledgement Nice to start with a win and I can see this being a team worth watching Get yourself down to Foxhall good people and give it a look

    Newcastle 2019

    I remember my first visit to Kelso races on 29/03/2009,,, I was quite surprised to see 'Berwick Bandits' being advertised there, there was riders and bikes and was well promoted,,, 'The Berwick Speedway Novice Hurdle',I wander if that was the same time ?

  27. StevePark

    Sheffield 2019

    Apparently, both will be at Sheffield. Steve W will do the "Press" bit at Newcastle and head off to Sheffield, whilst Simon L has been given permission to miss Newcastle altogether. Unless you know otherwise.

    Depends for which country and which team your allegiances lay
