    Eastbourne 2018

    Love him or loathe him, Bob Dugard was Mr Eastbourne and will be sorely missed. Always made me chuckle when he was more concerned with his beloved air fence than the rider who'd just destroyed it. He was also faster in that tractor of his than some of the dodgy reserves we had over the years. RIP Bob.

    Good news this, and good luck Kelsey up North.

    What is going on at Eastbourne.

    Great news, welcome Ethan.
  4. I'm a football season ticket holder but will still be going to Cardiff. I can let a friend use my season ticket or utilise StubHub, there's also a load of other matches I can go to, but Cardiff is only once a year so that takes priority. It's more than just a meeting to me, more a gathering of fans from across the country and supporting British Speedway. I accept there may be a drop off of the casual fans but if the title is still on the line, and Tai is involved then the media attention will be much greater. An intrigued, like many on here though, as to the reason why it has been moved to September.

    Eagles v Brummies 30th JUNE NL

    Should be a good one, can see it going either way. Hopefully a few Brummie fans make the journey.

    Brummies v Eagles Wed 7th June NL

    We'll make the playoffs but no more than that. Unless injuries happen then can only see a Mildenhall v Birmingham final with Mildenhall taking that (even with a James Shanes Birmingham). Can't complain about the Eagles though, had a successful few years in the National league, been very enjoyable.
  7. Been said a few times so I won't Labour the point but if Britain wants flexible race nights and/or weekend racing then it has to be a semi pro or amateur league(s), as rider availability just isn't there. No bad thing imo as the sport would be more affordable and go back to basics. A kind of hybrid of National League and Championship would work well I think.
  8. Good meeting imo. If every track was like Belle Vue and Somerset then the numbers attending would rise. If you want weekend speedway then fine, just accept that it would have to be at Semi-Pro, amateur level.

    2018 Warsaw Gp

    Good meeting. Have to say Warsaw has overtaken Cardiff now. Packed stadium and great atmosphere. You've got to admire the Poles, they really love and support Speedway.

    Wow, beautiful day in Warsaw. Not a cloud in the sky, hopefully a fine meeting to go with it.

    Coventry v Eastbourne 15-04-18

    Good result for the Eagles tonight at Plymouth. Took them a while to get going on an initially tricky track, the Devils were arguably unlucky to walk away with nothing. Kelsey couldn't take his first two rides due to a bike problem then had to take both his next rides from 15m! Should be a good meeting on Sunday, tough to call.

    A reasonable AGM in my opinion. The main gripe people seemed to have was around fixture clashes, which has now been addressed. I'm not sure why everyone suddenly thought all the 'stars' would be back as we don't pay them near what they want. There'll be a reasonable smattering of good riders, there's no point in bankrupting clubs by offering silly money. The T/R is now gone, which is good too. They'll never please everyone but at least a step in the right direction.

    Spot on, the Poles run it properly. Nothing worse than a long drawn out meeting.
