    Apologies for taking the thread off topic but I've left the stream running and Canal+ are showing a documentary about Tomasz Gollob and his recovery following his moto cross accident. Does anybody know if there's a version of the documentary available with English subtitles?

    Kent 2022

    I was there on Sunday, my first live speedway for a few years. I went with my son and we stood on the back straight just at the exit of bend 2. It was my first visit to Iwade, although I'd been an occasional visitor to Central Park. Given that the track has been a training track for a good number of years I wasn't expecting the facilities to be up to much, that's not a criticism it's just a fact. We didn't have to use the loo or buy food although we did have a cup of coffee and a bottle of water from the small café just by the pits. No issues with either. We had no real problems hearing the tannoy, once we'd got used to the level, I wear two hearing aids and my hearing is flakey at the best of times but I was able to pick up the race times without too much problem.. I enjoyed being close to the action, although it was very dusty. The sunny and windy weather didn't help with the track preparation, and maintenance. The track was watered before heat 13 and by the time the race had completed, due to the 2 reruns, it was bone dry again. We certainly took our fair share of dust home with us. The racing was entertaining, Alfie Bowtell stood head and shoulders above everybody else although from where we were standing he looked a little fortunate to not be excluded in heat 10. I liked the look of Ben Trigger for Lakeside, he looks a good prospect. Yes, the meeting did take too long to complete, and it was fortunate that it was a pleasant day. Having said that I'm sure that the promotion will get on top of the technical issues and the next meeting will run much smoother. We will be back, unfortunately we can't be there on 1st May but will be there on 15th. My relationship with live speedway has been rekindled.

    Kent kings are no more ??

    I refereed at Central Park not long after it opened, a couple of Kent Youth League games. One thing I can tell you is that the pitch was at the upper limit of length but the facilities were first class. That must have been at some point around 1994 or 1995.
  7. Is Bewley not riding on Sunday? Or have I missed something?
