    Good luck Robbo

    Always been a pleasure to watch Robbo. A genuine racer and genuine bloke.
  2. Enjoyed the meeting. Some good racing when Ellis and Pickering were on track. Times were 2 or 3 seconds off normal so hardly indicative of an unrideable track. Brough needs throttle control when dry and even more when wet.
  3. Cracking meeting. Of the visiting riders this season I would love to watch Covatti and Pickering every eeek (hint hint)
  4. I’ll be there. Love seeing Redcar get plootered.
  5. So what do I know! Well done Diamonds and especially Matthew Wethers who looked 10mph faster than in any other meeting this season.
  6. Four reserves and rider replacement? Diamonds 38-52 Bandits

    He got his average away from #1 though. He is up against better riders now so an average drop is not unexpected, especially away, where he is erratic at the best of times.

    Ipswich vs Newcastle 26/4/18

    Lindgren was terrible. Two of his three points were gifts. Morris was excellent and Wethers certainly put the effort in but 60 points are likely to be the norm I’m afraid.

    55-35 to Ipswich or hats will be eaten
  10. "some" only go on when they've had a hiding
  11. A blueprint for the season I suspect. Creep to a 10 point lead before heat 13 and hope it is enough. It was this time, just.

    Sheffield v Newcastle 05.04.18

    Highlighted every weakness in the Diamonds team. If Wilko and Morris can’t score at least 8 at reserve we have no chance. That said, we have lost by more at Sheffield with better teams on paper

    Newcastle 2018

    I'm not exactly delighted with the team but I've been going since 1975 and I'm not going to stop now. I've seen us have great teams and poor teams before now and my enjoyment of speedway comes from the racing. We have plenty of racers in the team so I shall be giving them my full support. I have nothing to do with Newcastle Speedway other than attending for 43 years (with the gap years when shut). I get my moneys worth when Robbo or Lindgren blast past people on the outside of the 4th bend and hope to see plenty of it this season.

    Our ‘strong’ reserves had better knock in big points in 2, 8 and 14 as we’ll be getting very little in 13 and 15.
