    Disabled & Enablers.

    What do Somerset and Plymouth do?

    Disabled & Enablers.

    Thanks for the reply. I am disabled and a Speedway fan - the guy who would take me is more of a 'take it or leave it fan'.

    Disabled & Enablers.

    Thanks for the replies. The tracks that we are thinking of visiting are: Plymouth, Swindon, Somerset, Poole & Birmingham. For what it’s worth I think Triple.H is correct. Football has a criteria that has to be met before an Enabler/Carer is allowed entry - that is fine, but can you try explaining this to someone who operates a turnstile at Speedway?
  4. Do any tracks offer disabled people who need an Enabler/Carer free admission for the person accompanying them providing they have proof of the higher rate care component. I know many sports do and wondered what Speedway tracks do. Feel free to add track names in this thread.

    Brandon Update

    At long last could there be some light at the end of the tunnel and well done to the campaigning to all those involved. Speedway needs teams of the stature of Coventy, Exeter, Cradley etc. Regarding the state of Brandon, perhaps it may be best to start from the ground up. Remembering the size of the land Brandon is on would it not be possible to do some tie up with a commercial partner who would build a Grandstand that had facilities incorporated that could be used throughout the week, i.e, Conference/Wedding venue, Gym, etc. It may result in Brandon looking different from the facility that closed but going forward Coventry fans would have a stadium more suited to this century than the last one. Most importantly Bees fans would have a team on there own track to support.
  6. Anyone who is interested in this meeting. You can listen online to the live commentary - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/motorsport/48037399
  7. Hi, I have already booked my Cardiff hotel for 2019 but whilst searching stumbled upon this on Roomer that I thought I would share - It is for the Days Inn at Magnor near Newport, I have stayed there in 2018 and it is easily accessed by car from the M4 and only a short trip from Cardiff. Click for details.

    Any news of the Falcons in 2019?

    Speedway Star in the winter

    Regarding Royal Mail I used to always receive mine on a Thursday (with the odd exception) but when they changed their internal work practices a few years ago things are more sporadic - I would say it is more a 70/30 split in favour - but being a supporter of a defunct track I am not in such a hunger for my weekly fix.
  10. Hi, when is the next issue due?

    Team body colours.

    Thanks for the reply. Basically I am building a app that would provide directions to the different tracks in the UK. I was hoping to include a image or part image of the racejacket as an image/icon.
  12. I am thinking of creating some designs that incorporate teams body-colours. Are these subject to copyright?
  13. Wasn't it four Czech riders in for Exeter? Ales Drymyl, Zedenek Kudrana, Jan & Vaclav Verner. I remember going to the 'Western Winner' grass track event back in the seventies where I think Vaclav was competing and hearing about how his car ran on gas - as I was around nine or ten I spent all afternoon sh*****g myself that the thing would explode!!
  14. Does anyone know the result of today’s British Masters?
  15. Slightly off-topic Speedway wise but there is a link when you read the story and the people involved: https://www.devonlive.com/news/devon-news/torquay-united-unveil-huge-plan-1821661 Another pipe dream? Sounds good but with the history of these people I can’t see it ever happening. (Sounds like another racino!)
