  1. We were due to stay at a Travelodge (Newport) in 2020 for two nights. As we went into Lockdown and all but essential travel was permitted Travelodge credited the value of the booking as an e-voucher.

    Moving on to booking in 2021, the price substantially increased and now our two nights was worth only one night.

    Now this year has been cancelled I have tried to move the date to later in the year but have found that you have to pay the full price instead of any difference as per usual. Unless we go to stay as planned (not much point really) we have lost the full cost of our stay.

  2. Hi, does anyone know or when the venue for the Premiership Pairs that is usually held on the night before Cardiff will be announced.

    We usually travel up the day before but if it isn't on we will do Cardiff up and back in the same day.

    Thanks in advance.

  3. If the new stadium is actually built then to suspend this season makes perfect sense as building work at present can continue during the Lockdown.  

    Unfortunately the track record of CO and his cronies and what has happened when they have been involved with other tracks doesn’t bode well for the future of the Robins although I hope for all Swindon supporters I am wrong.

  4. I am talking about the Royal Mail.  Another national treasure that since privatisation now see profit over service.

    I write this once again as my Speedway Star has failed to arrive.  They can blame the Christmas rush or COVID-19 but the bottom line is when you purchase the postage you enter into a contract with them to deliver your items within a certain time span.  Something that it appears to be failing all too often.

    If you read the Bible, the star that led the 3 wise men, kings, astrologists, from the East, was not visible when Jesus was born, it was some time later when Jesus was an infant. So, actually the star was very much later then December 24th, does that imply the Speedway Star will be that much late too. Hopefully not!

    Ironically at work I and my fellow Speedway cronies would always refer to the Speedway Star as the Bible!

  6. Plymouth Gladiators have launched a Christmas Charity Song to raise money for the Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund (The Ben Fund) and CLIC Sargent.   The song contains members of the current Plymouth management, riders and former riders lip-sync to an all-time Xmas classic.

    All of the participants have donated their time for nothing. 

    With the current pandemic decimating the UK Speedway season the SRBF has been particularly hit hard as they have been unable to carry out their usual collections at UK tracks.

    To read more about this project and how you can donate to these two fantastic charities head over to the Plymouth Gladiators website.

  7. With tighter restrictions due to Covid just being announced in the North West, Midlands and West Yorkshire when do you think BSI will make an announcement regarding the Speedway of Nations?

    From a personal point of view we have purchased tickets and booked our hotel but we are currently holding out on buying the rail fare.
