    There might be no Thurrock Council debate on it so what’s the problem. They have backing from the council and the local MP. You’ve made your point the petition is worthless. Let’s move on

    No one cares. Just sign the petition or don’t. If it doesn’t help then it doesn’t help but no harm is done by signing it.

    Maybe one day but why would anyone want to get involved in speedway now you might aswell throw your money down the drain.

    None at all. We all know that’s it for speedway in Essex.

    Lakeside and the BSPA

    Lakeside had a meeting with the developers today who confirmed there is no plans to have a track anywhere on the current site. Bit more info on the website

    Lakeside and the BSPA

    I have no idea Iam just saying what the presenter said on the radio but Iam guessing it’s nothing to do with the safety of the riders.

    That is right Tony, Cook said we had 7 meetings to run and we was offered 2 dates by the landlords at Arena.

    The presenter from the radio interview with Cook last night said the BSPA wouldn’t allow Lakeside to run in the Premiership or Championship at Rye due to the poor facilities. They could have run national league though.

    Jon Cook saying in the speedway star they made a loss of over £9000 for the Peterborough meeting which was restaged and the attendance was 211.

    Another interview with Cook today and he said things have started to look a little better and he has a meeting with the developers next week. He is also doing another interview tonight on the radio.

    I totally agree and for a while Lakeside did loads of different things to try and get more locals through the gates. The product needs to change to keep these new people coming back.

    Lakeside tried hard to promote the sport to the locals.

    Just listened to Cook on the radio who said they are still fighting to stay on the Arena Essex site due to half of the land not being suitable for houses anyway, he also said the cost of moving to Rye House cost him and Stuart a fortune and if any third party wants to help it would purely be as a fan as they would lose lots of money just to keep the hammers name going. He did say the BSPA wouldn’t let them run at Rye even if they could due to the way they fell out regarding Rye House closing. He didn’t say where but said him and Stuart will be moving onto other projects but there is two people dedicated to continuing the fight to get Lakeside back on track. Iam pretty sure he also said there is no chance of the club running for at least the next two seasons. Lastly he said what happened with Swindon was a big positive and the local Thurrock MP is good friends with the Swindon MP so hopefully that can be a big help to the hammers.

    There will be no new track it’s never going to happen, Grays Athletic are still waiting for a new football stadium to be built 8 years later, Thurrock Council couldn’t give a toss about sport.
