  1. So a wealthy club pays a rider to lay down and rest for 2 weeks then brings him back at reserve? That's already been tried 1 club even brought a rider from Europe to pull up after half a lap so that he could achieve the number of qualifying meetings and secure his new average. No thanks team managers should stick to what they're good at, Hollywooding!

    It's sad i know but please don't rely on that buffoon Brundle to sort it, he's effed up everything he's come in to contact with!

    How can the people at the top deal with this, they are the ones refusing fixtures!

    Throttle works both ways but on a slick track the slightest grip or driving out of a hole is enough to chuck em up. With lower revving engines they would alter the gearing to stay in control and feather the throttle to find grip but sitting on the lifting handle on the stop balls out really leaves the riders at the whims of the track surface and curator.

    They do actually, every till receipt has an invitation to complete the survey with monthly draws as the hook. They also do anonymous surveys using an agency then at the end of the call you are told the survey is being conducted on behalf of M &S Just caught up HT got there first

    Thank you Sky for nothing

    To be fair the ambition was to make Speedway great again and increase crowds so much so that the BSPA wholly funded the first year on Sky. The second year was a shared contribution and year three was the first deal but please don't run away with the idea that it was all bunce. The historical costs of getting it on air had to be restored, TR had knocked on every TV companies door and Ole Olsen had followed him by coincidence (or not) with his GP proposition, no broadcast or production partner were prepared to take a risk on British Speedway! Through Terry the BSPA took the risk and funded it in the belief that it would establish a TV audience that would repay their investment and it did. Sky are not and never have been the problem, this sport parceled itself up for television not the other way round.

    2010/11 the beginning of the end

    Looking at the decline from a technical perspective it was the introduction of laydowns for me, not because we saw poor racing but costs increased significantly overnight and it put the riders under immense pressure to invest more in equipment/facilities than was ever needed before.

    It's more likely their neighbours will look to expand the kart facility

    I agree but if you were called to Pall Mall it wasn't a question of whether you would get off it was how hard they clobbered you.
