  2. Just double-checked with the FIM website, - its not the 'World Championship Pairs'. ., its called the 'Speedway of Nations' competition. But one man can't be a nation, and neither can 2 men. If you're trying to identify the top nation, then just like the football world cup, it has to be a team, .. of the usual size that predominates in that sport: in football its 11, in speedway its 7, - (okay, I'll consider 6 or 8 . ) Football wouldn't have a World Cup that put up Ronaldo v. Kane v. Bales v. X v.Y, etc. in a shoot-out. Lets get back to proper internationals - we already have a Championship that determines the best rider, ( and we used to have a Pairs competition.)
  3. If you can have a league where the team that tops the league table after 6 months isn't the league champions, then why expect the top points scoring pair not to have do something similar after completing the schedule ? I'm not defending the format, just pointing out the analogues.
  4. A new page, “Flat Track Champions” has been added to the Speedway Champions website, Detailing all British Short Track and Flat Track championship winners and place-getters since inception in 2005, it completes the race disciplines covered under the 'Track Racing' department of FIM and ACU.

  7. Speedway concession price for the evening £13, . . .MCN Festival concession price if you booked by Thursday £11. So remember for next year,. . . buy a Festival ticket and make the day of it, and stay in the ground for the evening, (there's music, bands, beer tents, kiddies rides, etc. ongoing.) Enjoyed my first time at the Fest, a great family party day out, glorious weather, and several speedway connections and people to chat with, - and it got every biker away from those other 2 events happening yesterday, (unless you availed yourself of the TV link-ups in one of the bars.)

    Hamburg Lokstedt Dirt Track

    . The Golden Helmet event initiated in the meeting of Wed.19th continued weekly and Niss, the winner at that first meeting, ( 2 heats and a Final) took the overall season GH prize with 42 pts. The GH continued in the second season of 1930, to be won by Herbert Drews with 68pts, but in 1931 the event was abandoned after just one mtg, which Drews won. . Full details of the weekly GH event winners, 1929- 31 are given in the 'Golden Helmets, A - Z' section of Speedway Champions site, HERE with further narrative as follows: . . . . The first purpose-built dirt track in Germany was constructed in the Hamburg district of Lokstedt in 1929 by a UK/Danish consortium, United Speedway Ltd., who operated it alongside its Roskildeveg, Copenhagen site, built the previous year. Each stadium included a greyhound circuit in addition to the 1/3 mile speedway track, and star riders and their bikes, including British stars such as Bill Kitchen, were often flown between the two venues. From the opening Hamburg meeting in July '29 both venues ran a 'Golden Helmet' competition, - see the Roskildeveg GH results, 1929- '31, in the adjacent Danish GH table - , where weekly stagings were restricted to native riders who accumulated points towards an end-of-season total and the award of a Golden Helmet. The first winner was Fritz Niss, who won 4 of the weekly finals and totalled 42 points, (presumably from a scoring basis of 5-3-2-1 that was known to have been the Copenhagen system,) though he was being drawn down on by Herbert Drews toward the end of the year. Drews went on to become the 1930 overall winner with 5 weekly successes and 68 pts. The 1931 competition was abandoned after the initial event, though racing at Lokstedt continued up to 1933. . http://www.speedwaychampions.com/
