    Leatt Neck Brace

    I've read in the Speedway Star today that a new neck brace may be considered for speedway riders.Lawrence Hare has reported on this & he firmly believes he would not have sustained such serious injuries had they been available at the time.The brace has been successfully used in Moto X & the Paris-Dakar rally,& had a positive response from Chris Louis when he tested it out.Is this a must safety device for all riders?

    Thanks Johnno!

    1 of the sports few remaining true characters & he will be a real loss to the track. True enough all good things eventually come to an end, but i sure hope Johno isn't lost to the sport for good. If anyone deserves a farewell meeting in the UK it's Steve, so come on UK promoters get it sorted. Good luck Johno with whatever the future holds.
  4. Signed Lorna The very best of luck with a successful application.

    This is a meeting i will never miss as long as it continues & whoever it is that races. The fact that such an excellent race track has been chosen only heightens the expectation & i wish only the very best for the club in regards of the spectacle & the good 'ol British weather. I see that Rob Godfrey is hoping to break the record attendance, being at Scunthorpe is very likely to bring the crowds in for this meeting but i do hope this is catered for with regard to veiwing as that side of things at Scunny is very flat, a few temp stands wouldn't go amiss. Good Luck to all CC
  7. We we're on the coventry mini bus. We took the scenic route to chepstow & monmouth when we seen the road was closed, glad we did as we later heard about the problem on the m'way. Must admit this meeting was better than it usually is & considering the weather i heard they had yesterday a big well done just to get it going. 1 bugbear,well 2 actually. Why an upright Mr Bridger? Well, that worked well eh! The other is the format, some meeting 3 times & others not at all, surely a little tinkering with that here & there isn't too difficult.
  8. Hee hee i got me another tiddler, not worth putting in the frying pan so back in the murky waters of Poole Harbour it goes.
  9. yeah that's right they went out for a curry & your two bit hairdresser of a promoter locked the bloody door. Maybe not the facts bit it'll do for me.
  10. ........... and then we make honey that tastes................... hold on a minute while i savour it. aaaaaahhhhh so sweet.
  11. and Thicky Ponting is a right twit who deserves all the flak he's getting.
  12. The weakness in your lower order if you have 2 top riders is magnified in all the races they compete not just the 2 races at the conclusion of a meeting. by that deduction. Anyway, a team is about being a team not just who & how.
  13. It makes no difference The Aces would have a more balanced team whereas a team with 2 top riders would have to make up for that lower in the riding order.
  14. you know something. you are right. you're luck is bad.
  15. and i'm a cooke but i don't cook. Except very poorly. i certainly hope shovlar has got a shovel though, he's gonna need it.
  16. Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. this is not aimed at garryy btw
  17. You see the thing is richtea, nothing that i have said about what i know is anymore than what was said in the statement a few days later. The problem lies with the perception others have of that statement. All i am doing is trying to put people right on how it should be perceived. To read all of it rather than re-word parts of it as they see fit.
  18. yep, & the whole of that post tells you why? I respect people.
  19. what's wrong with quoting all of the post BFD? of course, it would break the habit of a lifetime.
  20. at least someone has the intelligence to know it.
  21. The only garbage on this forum is enough to fill the dustbins in the whole of Dorset never mind the 1 near Sherborne. Some people are irked that i'm not backing up my claim with evidence. To do so would betray a trust. Some people here will be decent enough to respect that. Then there are the others..........................
  22. Jesus christ i give up. For goodness sake read it ALL rather than pick the bits that suit most. Mediation offered or Legal redress is what it says. That means, IF THE BSPA DON'T MEDIATE THEN THE COURTS IS THE ONLY OPTION. Thankfully the lawyers of the BSPA appear to have advised them correctly as they know they would be on to a loser in the courts.
  23. You call that abusive Steve. Particularly with the personal comments you make publicly on here about me. Get over yourself. I hope the people who moderate on here check all of that & deal with it appropriately as i have requested many times.
