    Workington 2019

    As long as the Promoters have agreed not to pay silly money for these sought after riders with "attractive" averages or we will be back in the same boat as before.( wouldn't put money on that happening though).

    Same as other Clubs if rules are brought in.!

    Championship and Poland

    Do what's right fo GB speedway,fans want to see their riders every week,that is a major gripe among a lot of fans.

    Championship and Poland

    Its time to tell these 2nd raters where to go,if they are going to miss UK fixtures for the odd meeting Poland let them sit in the house waiting for the Polish telephone call.

    AGM November 2018

    Personaly I don't see any encouraging signs after the outcome of the AGM,looks like another sticking plaster job to me.Disapointing IMO .

    Who is going to bail out the Bandits to run next season.

    Think it best if “the Buster Chapman Show is left to run his circus”.The Championship looks a bit more creditable although points limit is a bit mean.Its just a joke sport .

    Better than going bankrupt and closing down though IMO.The sport is a joke .

    Worrying Times at Redcar

    When do Teams that are up for sale have to decide whether they will run or not.?

    AGM November 2018

    Interesting that the 2 newest clubs to Premiership in recent years can see the light ,and are out before going bankrupt .

    Seems all was well in 2018.

    agree, addressing tracks and Machinery would be a good start.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    Said it for the last few years riders are pricing themselves out of work,they will be looking for 9-5 jobs that some maintain because they can't make it pay.The chickens are coming home IMO .

    AGM November 2018

    Maybe so on the Speedway front,but the land they have bought in both Stadium and surrounding area will see them Ok in the future if they bail out of the sport.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    Most clubs daily and race night activities are run by volunteers .

    Some are no worse than what they are trying now.

    The BSPA/SCB would not listen to such solutions.IMO.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    They don't have to be down this year ,the levels over the last 5-10 years have not been enough to sustain the sports rising costs.Like I have stated before its Sponsers ,Supporters Clubs and Fans Trusts that are preventing ever bigger losses.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    If David Howe was on £60pp their must a good number of riders near that figure IMO.I fact I think the majority will be more that David,so with the attendances I have seen in the last few seasons at most tracks you can see where the problems lie.The riders need a reality check IMO .Sponsers and fans trusts are all that's keeping the sport going .

    AGM November 2018

    The majority of them don't see anything wrong with the sport ,a little tinker with the rules should see it Ok for another season, and make up the rest as they go along.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    You can only admire the time and effort the Glasgow Promotion put in to show speedway in good light,but unfortunately the sport is in dire straits in GB, and anybody who thinks differently is deluding themselves.There crowd levels were better than in their recent seasons but trying to improve them to levels mentioned will just about be impossible.As long as they can make the speedway pay for itself was all they would like.

    AGM November 2018

    Not really interested how he spends his earnings ,simply saying his Interview is a PR disaster if he expects people to believe what he says.Self Interest and other people paying for everything seems to be what he would like.He can only ride a speedway bike.

    AGM November 2018

    He might not be rolling in money,but his statement. 'I rode 90 meetings and I haven't earned a lot from that '.All I did was pay to ride speedway' is Ludicrious ,he better get a9-5 job for next year if that was the case.

    AGM November 2018

    Harris's sob story is pathetic,he's earn a few bob more than he makes out,total self interest.Why go Long Tracking to lose money !!!.had a lot of respect for him as a rider and entertainer but his PR is terrible.90+ meetings this season and just making ends meet!! Pull the other one!
