    St Austell

    I'm not completely sure TBH but a quick check on a routefinder states that the The Moto Park which was in Nanpean I think, is some 9 miles away from Par.???

    Every chance it's the same location I would imagine. The Cornish Stadium was in Par, and the Eden Project has a postal address of Bodelva which is also in Par.

    I don't think people are. They are just comparing The Aces to The Pirates.

    I think it's also fair to remind Shovlar & starman that The aces have been running continuously since 1928, even operating through WW2. A history that no other club operating currently can match I believe. For their part The pirates didn't get started until twenty years later (1948) and there have been gaps in their history where the club has closed down for periods. When considering greatness history is most important, it's unfair to just select a short period (as you call it the modern era ) & expect everyone to forget the rest , to justify a claim.

    Poole 2019

    A little while back Skidder asked " what it all had to do with Poole 2019?" I suppose we could say it's closer to the topic than the comedy being posted by Shovlar & his shadow.

    If you had enough intelligence to enable you to understand my post you wouldn't need to ask this question.

    Determining the " biggest club" is surely more about history +achievements . That will put Poole way down the list particularly when compared to a club like the Aces. Form is temporary class is permanent as someone once said.
  8. If only speedway had a few more" Barry Bishops", a promoter who understands the requirements of operating a business in the 21st century and the importance of keeping the fans onside.

    The continuing decline of Speedway

    I don't disagree with the person you quoted but i think we have seen from past experience that anyone who tries to implement change ( particularly a new member of the organisation) is on a hiding to nothing and will forced out before he knows what's happened. The "mafia " as I describe them don't take kindly to anyone prepared speak publicly or try to enforce any changes to their system. It would be wonderful to see someone grab hold of this sport and put it on a proper footing, but it's going to be extremely difficult IMO.

    The continuing decline of Speedway

    Not my intention at all. My view is that that it is controlled by a select few who are entrenched in their out of date thinking and ideas,they refuse to accept the type of changes that are required to put the sport on a better footing. A fair and transparent set of rules which apply to all would be an excellent starting point, but I'm not about to hold my breath.

    Fair play to the promoter concerned, he is of course spot on. Unfortunately we've"been there " before and those that spoke up are now ex promoters. The unwritten rule at BSPA towers appears to be step out of line at your peril.

    Where is SCB

    Given his declared " leanings" there's a decent chance he will be.

    Stoke v Brummies NL Sat 1st Sep

    And the even less bright fail to see the guys failings.

    Plymouth v Birmingham postponed

    May have "drained " their enthusiasm somewhat, as opposed to the track.

    Kings Lynn v Poole Wednesday August 29th

    A route taken by many a disgruntled speedway fan i fear. Miss- Sigh -Gone.
