    You’d think the head of bspa who owns the team would know the correct averages. How long ago was the team announced ?

    Maybe the bspa will introduce a doubling up fan rule !!!

    It’s a double edge sword. Riders need meetings to pay for their machinery and running costs. They necessary don’t care who they ride for as long as they get paid on time. if you have a sport where there is a shortage of riders to fulfill 3 leagues , riders will grab what they can and promoters will be happy as they will fill their teams. A team has to be competitive within the points limit. It’s not about signing your assets year after year it’s about who fits the points limit. Therefore all it’s doing is leaving itself open to manipulation of the rules to gain an advantage. That’s sport. The paying spectator has to have a certain degree of realism that this is the state of British speedway now. And now crowds are dropping it’s time for the promoters to come clean so to speak and unite for the good of what punters they have left. Now this might be the pie in the sky bit. If the doubling up is dropped , the might lead to costs coming down for the riders as they will need less outlay for their machinery and travel costs. Might lead to less accidents due to rider fatigue. Which in turn leads to a more consistent septet turning out for teams.

    Why win the league ?

    It’s not really broken as such, everyone knows the format. The reward for finishing top has a reward albeit a small one. Kings Lynn and Peterborough and even Mildenhall have still had fantastic seasons , it’s just the unfortunate injury situation that has done for them. For every team with bad luck there’s always someone else who will benefit not just speedway but in life itself if you think about it.

    For premiership league. If there’s only 6 teams Start the season May bank holiday . Run cup matches , shields etc up until mid July then have league programme with one round each with the grand final done and dusted by middle of September. Create like a t20 cricket concept of fun. If we can’t get gp riders to do league racing why not have some kind of challenge after the match where the 2 top point scorers race off to have a best of 3 against a gp rider say Bartosz Zmarslik etc

    I chose the credit card option from the list. Find your card provider input your details. Then got a confirmation email but it’s in Polish but from what I googled it looks ok.
