    RIP Mark Lawton

    Lefty, that is a wonderful tribute to Mark and far better than I could have put it. He really did pioneer the concept of the internet in Speedway, and indeed helped me begin my own journalistic career because I started out penning match reports for the Wolfcry forum while still in my teens. My family became part of the Wolfcry collective and had some incredible times travelling to meetings and social events - Mark and his many friends made speedway fun, which is what the sport should be. His impromptu 50th birthday party on turn two at Belle Vue, organised by Ruth and others, still lives strong in my memory today, and thanks to him and his vision I have made several friends for life through Wolfcry. Even away from Speedway he always had time for everyone and was always willing to listen to anyone's problems, a truly special man. Rest in peace Mark, and thank you for being a friend to everyone.

    Danny Ayres RIP

    Oh my. It was a real pleasure to commentate on Danny racing over the last few years. He was without a doubt one of the most flamboyant, entertaining and passionate riders I have ever seen in my career, and I would always look forward to what crazy victory celebration he would come up with next! He would always engage with the fans more than anyone else as well and it was so wonderful to watch him in action. Love and condolences to Danny's family and many friends, Dave Goddard.
  3. Thankyou for watching and for all the info this season guys and girls
  4. Well I did NOT see this coming.
  5. Well, at the studio for the last time this year. Can Smederna make it three out of three, or will Dackarna win their first title since 2007?
  6. Thankssss on air in 15 minutes.
  7. Let us know the definite riding order when we find out, many thanks
  8. Have filled in two racecards for tonight just to be sure
  9. Hello everyone - all ready to rumble with tonight's first leg!

    0-0 ?

    I've got that one on a DVD and it's like something out of a circus. In the first running Ayres knocks off Jason Garrod and both fall off, for some reason Garrod is excluded. In the rerun Ayres falls on his own, as he tries to get up the two Cradley riders knock each other off half a lap further on. Greaves remounts but thinking the race has been stopped due to all the carnage rides back into the pits leaving the ridiculous sight of Ayres and Phillips trying to push start their bikes half a lap apart. With the crowd laughing their heads off the referee waits for a bit and then excludes both of them for exceeding the time limit thus ending possibly the funniest and most ridiculous speedway race I have ever seen!
  11. Saying nothing, I will jinx it.
  12. Second legs are Dackarna v Vastervik and Vetlanda v Smederna, they take place next Tuesday and the former will be televised.
  13. Which thanks to Krister Gardell rushing the meeting through and a fast taxi driver, I didn't need!
