    Really sad to hear of his death this morning. It was only a couple of months ago that I was listening to him on Just a Minute, and it was incredible that he was still chairing the programme at 96. A brilliant and simple programme it never fails to raise a few chuckles and shorten a car journey. RIP Nicholas Parsons, a voice you could never forget. Edit: just watched a documentary on BBC4 tonight about his lifelong interest in clocks and particularly Marie Antoinette's watch. A touch of calm classic educational TV that was made three years ago.

    It’s laughable - then read the Admission Details Page! It includes VIP Option which has various extras including: PARKING (doesn’t say where exactly but I think we can all guess where that will be) PIT WALK CENTRE VISIT further down is an item listed as OTHER RACE DAY OPPORTUNITIES which includes - Visit to the Centre Green £5 for 2 Heats. If if they are deadly SERIOUS about Health & Safety I believe these two items should also be scrapped as I can’t think of anything more dangerous than walking through the Pits with trucks, bikes, tractors etc. etc. moving about - you just can’t be too careful!

    think theyre looking for a young aussie who can "double-up",that is doubling up as a painter and decorator at the chateaux on non racedays!

    Appears that the parking restrictions do only affect the BB holders not the free loading hangers on who get to park within the showground almost as if there saying BB holders or there drivers are dangerous drivers now.

    So is the mystery over? Poole up to silly games before season started; Newcastle acted with great integrity and Eastbourne once they knew what had been done played a straight bat and tried not to spill the beans, forcing a statement from Poole to fess up??? Or is there another theory?

    Indeed. This incedent ended Billy's meeting and season there and then. There is still some doubt, however, whether Billy broke his wrist in the resulting crash or on Finn's head when they exchanged notes in the pits afterwards .....

    The story going round when he first rode for Poole was, He rode in a Grasstrack meeting in the afternoon and came off, landing in a cowpat....He then rode a Speedway meeting in the evening wearing the same unwashed leathers....hence the name “Smelly Smith”

    I take my hat off to people who can remember what happened on the 3rd bend between riders at Cradley in 1964, I cannot even remember what I had for tea.

    The Championship in my opinion was a nicely run league, we now get "newcomers" to it and suddenly a word in the right ear and cup ties get changed. The cup fixtures were sorted and advised to all, they should never have been changed just because one club found it difficult to fit in a first round meeting. If the can't fit in the meetings then withdraw from the cup altogether, or perhaps stay in a league with only 7 teams in it and therefore less meetings altogether during the season would suit them better. With a bit of luck Eastbourne will progress victorious from the second round, after all they did give Leicester a run for their money last season, and that should help Poole with their "crowded" fixture list.

    I am sure that Len has publicly made it clear that his reason for running a National League side is to try to produce riders for the Kings in the future. Personally I applaud that aim and will support the junior side fully.

    Link doesn’t seem to be working at the moment. Assume Poole won’t be taking part in the play offs then if they qualify and draw a team north of Sussex.

    Not that I agree with it, it is sort of sensible. So now that it's ok to do it, come on guys, start thinking about who you want to meet in next season's cup and, the 'draw' can be arranged early.

    How about anyone having their first three matches for £10 a time? That might attract new fans, former fans, friends and girlfriends who then get the bug sufficiently to pay £16 for the rest of the season.

    Len has confirmed he has not or won’t have any involvement in Rye House.

    Totally agree. You either have a winter break or you don’t. Daft to not allow friendlies yet have to play cup replays.

    Why? Fixture list was embargoed until Thursday to ensure everyone had time to release them at the same time. I believe that British Speedway needs the Star as, without it, there would be no central source of information. So it’s a simple trade off that the Star gets to release their information at the same time as everyone else. Not before, and not after. It’s how media works best, in my view

    All very unsavoury this. Has to be said that the communication between those that run/own the club and the fans who ultimately keep the club running, is poor to say the least.
