    Speedway Promoter Game?

    Honestly mate, even simply instructions blow my mind when it comes to laptops. Anything past vista and I am screwed. Only recently turned it on again so I could record zoom videos for my tv page. If your prepared to have a look for me, i can put the laptop on at your leisure. Would be greatly appreciated. Obviously will offer a cash reward, or a liquid one when speedway fans are allowed to meet up again. if you have facebook, add me. Ben 'teaboy' Clifton. Maybe easiest way to communicate? many thanks again.

    You could also had fiction between a rider and management or fans. Erik Gundersen only rode for Cradley Heath AKA Cradley. It will be far easier to find a foreign rider that rode for a single club than a British one.

    Whoops completely forgot about the curfew issues at Sittingbourne, but there again maybe the carrot of a televised World Championship event even with no crowd could tempt the council to relax the rules.

    Well spotted. My excuse is that I didn't see him ride very often for Swindon in 1974, on checking only 6 times! Remove him from my list and add: Charlie Barsby - Leicester Alan Totney - Cradley Heath Frank Boyle - Oxford Brian Hanham - Southampton Bengt Larsson - Sheffield Bill Landels - Edinburgh

    Behind closed doors?

    i think there will be a two season gap before any fans are allowed inside a stadium . its for the greater good , as some one said !

  11. For all who still doubt the status of speedway in Poland, take a look here. This is the Polish State president Andrzej Duda, who on Friday visited the home and workshop of world champion Bartosz Zmarzlik ! https://www.speedwaygp.com/news/article/8278/polish-president-visits-zmarzlik-Workshop

    Behind closed doors?

    Monday April 27, 2020 BRITISH Speedway is unlikely to resume behind closed doors. Rob Godfrey, chairman of the British Speedway Promoters Ltd, has stated the financial impact of no fans makes meetings unviable. Poland’s top league look set to start their season on June 12 with no spectators – but they have record levels of revenue from TV and sponsorship deals. Godfrey said: “As a sport in the UK under the current financial structure it’s not possible for us to run behind closed doors. “The only way it could happen is if revenue came in to underpin it, but right now we cannot see it happening so all talk of this is irrelevant.” https://www.speedwaygb.co.uk/news.php?extend.38043

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    I have to say the Star has been very interesting during the pandemic. An exceptional effort in my view.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Speedway Star has been excellent in the pandemic. Distribution to Shops and via Royal Mail is NOT fault of Speedway Star. Distribution staff are allowed to be ill an to self isolate too you know! No mail on a Saturday and Wednesday in many areas was announced in April, obviously that affects distribution day and also Saturday delivery in many places so Monday / Tuesday is effectively Thursday/Friday in terms of "working days". Mine arrives at newsagents mostly Thursday, occasionally Friday and a few times Saturday. Have total 100% admiration for James Easter and all he does has done for Speedway and in Business. My only gripe, mentioned before is the continual and it seems preferential treatment to Clubs served by Curtis Sport and it's bloggers. In the midst of some outstanding journalism by Oakes / Burbidge / Skeels / Lanning , the weak link are the few paragraphs of "current news content" that invariably are a free advert for the latest Curtis Sport publication, which to coin a phrase "once you've read one, you've read em all". Very formulaic. Good to see some of the old regulars and regional reporters back too, like Brian Burford; Andrew Edwards; Tony McDonald; Phil Chard and Brian Owen in recent weeks. Superior local journalists who used to serve the Star well before the Curtis blogger take over.

    Enjoying the game again, congrats on the fab work! Anybody know if I can get the game full screen rather than in a corner of the screen?

    Honestly I'm not that sure where the Monika Pepsi come from to be fair and Tsunami has gave a good response and Gavin Parr is also someone who could shed some light on it... but I remember going to the world final as a kid in 73 and he was on our bus (one bus of about eleven I think that went from Brough that year) and he was Pepsi George then and I asked why he was called that and the simple answer was he didnt drink and if he was ever asked if he wanted one his response was I'll have a Pepsi... but he still went to pubs and the club and was high up in the RAOB (I think) and done a lot for charity but he never really mentioned anything about that... however as often as he went out he wouldn't drink apparently... not sure how true that was but it sounded feasible... another genuinely nice bloke who loved his Speedway and followed the Diamonds for years and some of the pictures at the afterwards of his funeral were very interesting... Another one sadly missed Regards THJ
