  1. I was there last night and thought the attendance was disappointing. Car park was easy to get in and out of, back straight wasn't particularly populated and the main stand looked about a third full (just a guess!). Possible reasons include one or a combination of: the meeting being televised, disappointment about how the Panthers have started the season or, more worryingly, the 'cost of living crisis' causing spectators to decide travel and admissions costs can't be justified so pick and choose matches to attend. Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, but under the terms of the latest Eurosport deal do clubs receive any funding to compensate for reduced crowds at televised matches?

    Belle Vue 2022

    You posted a similar comment recently and received a great deal of opprobrium, yet you come back and try again. From their comments and behaviour it is clear that both riders abhor and condemn their country's egregious actions. Both are decent men who face having their livelihood taken away from them through no fault of their own. Only 5 countries, Russia itself, North Korea, Eritrea, Syria and Belarus, voted against the U.N. resolution condemning Russia's actions. Any decent person will feel sad, helpless and also admiration for the brave Ukrainian people's resistance and for their immense suffering and also support the West's isolation of Russia. Yet you post a truly pathetic post once again saying Belle Vue should capitalise on the situation. I think you must be a despicable lowlife to attempt to troll decent people on this forum in such sad times. It's not 'banter' or 'just having a joke mate lighten up'. You are a sick individual who should think long and hard about why you post what you do.
  3. I'm surprised that there hasn't been more comment on this. I know we'll just have to wait and see and that there's no point speculating, but the sale of all those tractors and the haste for the items to be removed from the Showground looks very worrying to me.

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Confirmed http://www.kingslynn-speedway.com/news.php?extend.31088
  5. Mine came immediately but went into junk folder. If you haven't already, it may be worth checking there.
  6. OFF http://www.peterborough-speedway.com/news.php?extend.3879
  7. Sorry if I've missed this but how do you buy tickets?
  8. Apologies if this has already been asked somewhere in this thread but will it possible to watch any of this season's Polish live speedway meetings legally this season in the UK and if so how and what does it cost? I don't want to buy a motorised satellite dish.
  9. This was approx 13.30. Told all cheaper tickets had sold out. I understand why they do this. I'm just saying that it's a short term policy. I wouldn't go again on the spur of the moment.
  10. They buy tickets off of punters at below face.
  11. My experience too. £50 as the 'walk up' price is too much. Last minute decision to go with my son. Luckily(?) I bought cheaper tickets from a tout instead. Short sighted pricing policy in my opinion that could/should deter those thinking of attending as a 'walk up' next year.
  12. I'm in the same boat, needing 2 tickets at short notice so interested in any advice provided. Also, is there any obvious place anyone with spare tickets would be found? Fan zone? Outside the Cardiff ticket office?

    Rye House 2018

    Attendances haven't gone up at Rye House despite more big names being on show. I suspect that if they returned to the Championship the crowds would not fall so people aren't just going to watch Doyle, Lambert, Cook etc. If anything they make the racing more predictable as the top riders rarely make a mistake. If you could take up the sport on a relatively low cost, part time basis combined with it being easier to get a team place (remember 'Vultures' races?) more individuals may well be inclined to give it a go therefore increasing the supply of riders. How about appealing to existing moto-cross riders in the same way that grass track riders used to be encouraged to give it a go. Make clubs more like clubs so a longer term view is taken of riders' development. It's first and foremost a team sport for me.

    Rye House 2018

    Time to give one big league another go. More fixtures. No doubling up/down. Part time riders.
  15. At the track now. Not raining and indications are that the weather will clear up. Half the car park is a lake, bring your amphibious vehicle if you have one.
