    I've said before when I moved into my house opposite a school I knew I would have cars and people in the street for about 15 minutes in a morning and afternoon but it would be quiet at other times especially weekends and evenings plus it's a newish school so very unlikely anything else will be built there in my lifetime.I would never complain to the school about it because I knew what would happen. You get idiots parking illegally and I even had one park on my drive because he thought no one was in!!!!! He hasn't done it since. Lol. You have to weigh things up when you move somewhere

    Top post put perfectly and I hope Buster reads this -and I hope those who go on about positivity and glasses half full and time to move on realise how let down some fans feel by the actions of two riders and the promotion the only man I think who came out of that night with any credit was Gavin Cainey who stood up and said enough is enough and walked away . 2018 is a massive season for speedway and Kings Lynn more so -another season like last season and there won’t be much left to talk about -As for Brundle we shall see hopefully he will be allowed to try and bring in new ideas but as others have found out it’s not that simple .

    Being out of season i have just finished filling out most of Belle Vue's 1972 fixtures. Ivan Mauger his stats are unreal the programmes i have ( maybe a few missing..?) In home and away and individual meeting's he posted 19 - full maximums and plus 4 - paid maximums. In that 23 he won the Northern riders Championship, The Derek Warbuton trophy scored a 15 max in the Australia v New Zealand. International and - A 15 max in a WC round. : N.Boocock 2). - E.Boocock 1) - Olsen2). - Persson 1) - Moore 1) - T. Johansson2) - Kilby 1) - Humphrey's 1) - B.Jansson 2) - Nordin 1 ) Thomas 1 ) they were the only riders to beat him on merit in amongst my programmes. Also he had 21 other rides scoring 45 points out of a possible 63 having lost 18 points through engine failures a brilliant season.What astounds me was i always thought 1968/71 was by far his real peak years but how wrong i was a total legend. The greatest.!!!

    last season I downloaded the Goldvod.TV add on to Kodi (instructions are online) and purchased viewing subscription code on e bay and viewed all televised Polish speedway meetings which included all divisions and all individual meetings. Goldvod TV offer live streaming in SD for poor internet connections or in HD which is perfect when viewing on television. I have recently subscribed for this coming season but before doing so I sent Goldvod.TV an e mail to confirm that the relevant sports channels would be available for 2018 and they replied within a day confirming the "zuzel" sports channels are available. I subscribed and received the viewing code within 10 minutes on ebay and was viewing Polish sports channels in HD a few minutes later. I have recently been watching the repeat of last seasons Extra League matches on nSport+ which they have been screening early evenings during the last week or so as well as doing a 15 minute program regarding this years line ups and interviews with individual riders..... so at present Goldvod TV assured me that the speedway sports channels......nSport, Eleven Sport and PolSat sport are available to stream for the 2018 season for those wishing to go the whole hog there is a Polish TV shop in Rugby that will supply the hot bird dish and decoder box for about £60 plus fitting for about £40. they are also the UK distributors for Canal+ viewing cards......prices vary as to the content required more or less like Sky but much more cheaper. website is TEHWIZ.co.uk I hope this information has been some help to those wanting a feast of Polish speedway at weekends

    I think people should just wait and see. If Brundle cant turn buster around then its game over for me. I jacked it in after Holdergate, but still hold out hope that come April its a fresh start with fresh hopes. It will soon become clear IF anything has changed. Whichever way it goes its win won for me. If everything is back as it should be then, then great, if not I save myself £30/40 and 2 hours driving. At This moment in time I'm not fussed, but I'll give it a go.

    It would need to be The Messiah ( for those who do believe in Him ) because I suspect that no-one else can work the necessary miracle and turn around Buster's way of doing things, I fervently hope that I am wrong but Buster let so much slide last year and no one else stood up to the plate ( as far as we know or were told ). Autocratic decisions were made so many times ( call offs, double headers, track prep. etc ). It all brought home to me that despite the spin the BSPA put on SGB, it is very much like a non league soccer operation.

    It's sad really when you consider that they knew what was there when they were purchasing the place isn't it!

    Thing is, with the close proximity of the houses you only need one noise complaint, and that could end speedway.

    Sorry about any problems you may have had and hope all sorts out ok for you but I will never understand why anyone would put this on a forum and share with strangers

    I was there, it was a great night, plenty of support for our new no.7. Natalie Quirk was a brilliant compare and over £400.00 raised for charity to be split between Great North Air Ambulance and the Greg Mackie Trust , the young Speedway rider from Glasgow who passed away .

    Thanks once again for the data and an informed update. You may be amused to know that the budget for Screen Sport coverage in 1984-6 covered three cameramen (one of whom was the producer), one director, one vision mixer, occasionally a 'gofer'and one commentator, very occasionally backed-up by a pit interviewer or co-commentator. That budget? £1000 an hour....... A highlights show or something on the lines of my old news review - with suitably upgraded content and presenter (1984-6 budget about £100 a show excluding studio time) would have been a superb addition to the coverage, but not replacement as some here have been arguing for. The fact that certain promoters saw it as a threat and still seem to view any coverage similarly now and the inept failure to find a sponsor must be connected, don't you think?

    Maybe the fans would be more forgiving toward Buster if he had said.... I'm sorry for the fact that I signed those 2 Aussie A Holes, and I had to show them who they were dealing with. Nobody takes the Pee out of me and gets away with it....... I have learned a valueable lesson and one I will do my utmost not to repeat.... I'm sorry to all the loyal supporters but hope you will forgive the mistake's I have made this season and join me in looking to the future. Haza, Webby, would that have done the trick ? or would Buster have had to wine and dine you then tried to get you into bed ?

    Every Sky Speedway meeting cost over 35k a meeting and that does not include Sky staffing costs in Osterley or the actual airtime and satellite uplink capacity which Sky have long term lease via BT media & Broadcast. Obviously I am unable to go into every cost but can give you a few examples over £1000 a meeting for catering,£2500 for power,£1100 for scaffolding, £200+ for security, Temporary Internet circuits £1400 Most experienced cameraman on excess of £500 a day plus travel. BT did a very good job in 2017 in cutting the OB and production costs but in my opinion that did show on screen with less cameras and older OB equipment. Some of the savings were Made like on catering, security and less staffing, cranes In 2018 I I understand that the production budget has been increased so there will be some on screen benefits which is good. i read with great interest in the thoughts and comments about a highlight package and magazine style programme in the week. This very nearly happened in 2014 on Sky sports in addition to the live coverage it was all costed out but the BSPA were not happy about this and it never got off the ground as some clubs feared it would affect attendances and some put pressure on local video companies to not provide footage for this and also into live productions. It still shocks me that Speedway is not able to attract a TV programme sponsor as there are a number of high profile companies involved now with clubs but did hear that at one point that Go Speed were asking for unrealistic prices whether they would take less now who knows. Even if they only got 25k for these rights better than nothing

    ................and the preparation. One of my favourite tracks is Plymouth (which I believe is the smallest in the country) and no-one could reasonably say that the racing is better at Berwick, for example. While over a season in my view their is no comparison between Belle Vue & Redcar, I have seen some brilliant racing at STMP. If you can do it once, you can do it again.

    Disagree, speedway in the UK has its issues but think it will continue for a good few more years yet....

    You really do need to take a little water with it.....and perhaps seek some anger management therapy!!! For those who REALLY DO ENJOY THE SPORT, I repeat you can watch the movie whenever you choose on Terrarium TV. No egos required for that!!!!
