  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. They buy tickets off of punters at below face.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  8. 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.

    Rye House 2018

    G'wan Steve, take it to the Courts to end this nonsense. I look forward to a rider being able to leave 'on a Kasprzak' at the end of their contract.

    2017 Profit & Loss

    I'm sure that is right but based on what I saw at Rye House it is achieved by an endless downward spiral of spending as little as possible on facilities, the track and riders. The spectator experience gets worse and worse each year until you are left with just the hardcore supporters who will put up with anything - but who have a growing sense that they are being taken for mugs.

    Bt Sport Coverage

    The BT deal works for those promoters and riders who have the vision and drive to capitalise on a broadcast meeting as an excellent opportunity to showcase sponsors. If they just sit back and don't make the effort then they would be out of pocket. I'm think BT are realistic in sort of saying that they are providing the platform but the sport needs to make an effort too, not just sit back and wait for a cheque.
  12. Well that's a first for me - refused admission to a speedway meeting! "I can't let you in unless you have the correct money as I have no change". With adult admission prices of £16 and £14 (seniors) it is entirely forseeable that more coins will be needed to be handed out as change that will be collected. First match I've missed at Rye this season. Unimpressed.

    Swindon Stadium

    Surely a sound investment, what could possibly go wrong?
  14. Charlie's interview questions seem more mangled than ever. Makes an observation and pretends it's a question then follows it by finding a tenuous link to Darcy Ward.
