  1. I have a room for sale near Newport (just off the motorway). It is a double room with twin beds and is booked for two nights (friday & saturday) - so is ideal for anyone who wishes to go to the Pairs  at Somerset the night before and then can enjoy a relaxing night after the GP before travelling back home.

    Currently the room rate for the two nights are - £155 (checked tonight 11/6/19) and is sure to go up nearer the event.

    I am prepared to sale for £120 - message me if you are interested or have any further questions.

    Thanks.

    PS, Apologies as I have previously posted this on the Speedway & International Events messageboard on here but thought more casual supporters are likely to look on this board instead. 


  2. Was the period of no Speedway on the TV and the pig-headiness of some of the promotors during that period the cause of today's problems?  Not only during this time did Speedway fall from the public's conscience but now when you go to many meetings and look around it is now a largely elderly audience who most probably remember the halcyon days of the sport. Sadly lacking are the age group between 25-35 year olds who would have been the age most affected by Speedways lack of coverage both on TV and mainstream media press (pre-internet).  Sadly though and perhaps more of the problem it is that age group who are now have offspring of the age that Speedway so desperately needs to attract.

  4. Thanks for the replies. The tracks that we are thinking of visiting are:

    Plymouth, Swindon, Somerset, Poole & Birmingham.

    12 hours ago, Triple.H. said:

    Surely it's illegal to not allow a disabled supporter who requires an assistant to not allow the assistant free entry. As the assistant is only there to aid the person who wishes to attend

    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?


  5. 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.


  6. 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.

  7. 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.


  8. 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!!
