    Warsaw and Cardiff the two from ten in the GP to have temp tracks.  

    Maybe the answer is same day practice. 

    If they ever have a GP in Dublin they could have practice the day after the meeting.

    P.S.

    Before any do gooders get on my case I am of Irish Stock

    I haven`t  particularly enjoyed  the practice this season- my argument is that Friday nights before the GP`s  should  be sacrosanct  for the riders. The Polish Extraleague do not need to put fixtures on these dates, but think everything revolves around them !!!

    Can't do much this season but the FIM could bring in a rule for next season that you have to be signed in by 3pm local time on the Friday. That would scupper their Friday night fix..

    It is good improvements will be made but we've heard this every year for at least 15 years.   The truth is its a terrible track for racing and that hasn't changed nor will it change.  But there will be another Prague GP for the foreseeable time and every year we'll say it's rubbish.    Speedway shoots itself on the foot every day.   

    GP's should run be on the best tracks that let riders show there skills.

    One of the problems from what I've seen at Marketa and Krsko is the GP riders are just too good for the track. They're at the top of their game and don't often make mistakes.

    I've seen some meetings there with lower standard riders and theyve been entertaining

    If you watched a meeting with a Championship league level line-up I reckon you'd get a pretty entertaining meeting. 

    Only way to improve it for GPs is widen the straights by a metre and the bends by say 1.5 - 2 metres on 1st and 2nd and about 3 on 3rd and 4th.

    Exactly. A more seasoned campaigner would have put it down to get the points in a rerun. Just inexperience on his part. 

    Probably would've also injured themselves and possibly others in the ensuing carnage.

    Racing incident as I see it Madsen came out of the bend pretty damn fast and touched Fricke.  I'm well aware at those speeds a nudge is more than a wink. 

    When you see it from behind Fricke had a fair bit of room. As Del-Boy used to say he who dares wins.

    Maybe Fricke should've cut inside instead of trying the outside.

    Who knows life is full of If's but's and maybe's.  You get one chance to make a split second decision.

    Also Fricke didn't throw his toys out of the pram afterwards.

    Who takes a suitcase to a speedway meeting. :o

    Just takes a bit of common sense and everyone should get in quickly and safely.

    If you go to any big event the clowns with no common sense seem to be out on day release.

    For example I went to see Muse in London. As usual a week or two before the event a reminder was emailed out with do's and dont's. As usual there was a queue of people with rucksacks the size of which would do for a week's walking in the Lake District. After a long wait and a search they were allowed in.

    I'm surprised they don't arrange a temporary cloakroom at £10 per bag. Easy and extra money for the organisers and those who don't think the rules apply to them would hopefully learn not to be a twonk the next time.

    Wonder if there is any chance of anyone persuading BT Sport to show this meeting live- Polish TV i`m sure would be interested in paying to show.

    That's a very good shout

    Maybe if someone in a position of authority from the BSPA/SCB/ACU brought the BT Sport people and FIM to the table they could see the benefits.

    I haven't got a clue what other big sporting events are on that day. Other than the tennis at Wimbledon 

    Though I myself will be at Hyde Park to see Bob Dylan and the very wonderful Neil Young

    So I'd have to record it and do a Likely Lads and avoid hearing the result 


  8. ^^^^^^

    IMO Racers and Royals then that's the biggest reason to say no practice no racing for 28 days. 

    Unless Poland wants to run Black. In that case you ride in Poland you don't ride anywhere else  Every rider starts out with the dream of being World Champion .

    How many riders are still owed money by Polish club's from last season ?

    Bet it's far more than have been publicised

    That’s a good idea- my question would be do Gorzow and Zielona Gora like each other. Do Torun and Grudziadz  like each other lol

    My question would be 

    Why don't the FIM state if you miss practice you're out of the GP. With a 28 day ban from riding in any league.

    Our Polish friends would then stop arranging league matches the night before a GP.

    Would save having to drop him anyway when Thorsell returns. Never rated him and seems to have lost it mentally. Still, nothing surprises me and he could be back in a Pirates race jacket before long :D

    According to his Instagram he has a broken scaphoid

    Might need him if no one is signed in time as dont expect you get a facility for a not signed my contract rider whos been released. 

    In the wacky world that is British speedway nothing would surprise me

    i seem to recall in the 70s John Davis was in dispute and rode as a guest for himself
