    Rev Limiters

    Makes no difference how many sppedway names are on there , if the whole organisiation treats the sport like something it trod in ...

    Rev Limiters

    as far as I'm aware titanium valves cannot be reground , once the stems have stretched that's the end of them ,single use at 3 times the cost , titanium conrods allow more revs becuase they are light once again 3 times the cost for minimal gain , titanium rockers lighter less mechanical weight more revs at 3 times the cost . so we have these peter johns titanium engines that weigh the same as a bag of crisps , that cost a fortune muted by a rev limiter , IMHO a dangerous expensive and uneccesary piece of equipment , forced on speedway by a govenring body ,that knows little or nothing about speedway and cares even less ,as long as it's sure it's bleeding every last penny out of it . rather like the E.U. is doing to the UK

    or alternatively ,chop the one of the valve rockers off so that only one inlet and one exhaust works

    KENT 2019

    I wonder if a saturday might attract a few lakeside and even rye house supporters

    KENT 2019

    with todays technology you can sit on the beach witha bag of chips and watch the GPs , on the other hand Kent is too far a stretch for many away supporters on a Monday ,
  7. This percieved reduction in quality amounts to about half a dozen foreign riders ,who have chosen not to ride here anymore , there has been no orchestrated dumbing down as far as i can see , just spreading out the the top riders to try and keep a level playing field .
  8. sorry but I'll have to whoosh you on that because it went stright over your head . Ave another read
  9. If you were to standadrise engines , the fans on the terraces would definitely notice a difference , just take a look at Moto2 ,standardised engines, and racing that far outstrips Moto GP or F1
  10. Semi pro speedway at semi pro admission just would not work , Gospeed and the BSPA would still expect professional fees to run it ,and after they have had their pound of flesh ,there wouldn't be enough left to rent a stadium with , unfortunately no form of motorcycle sport gets funded by local councils sports council etc ,unlike other minority sports , so Leicester Riders can happily play basketball in front of one man and his dog , because they dont have any bills to pay , we are paying them thorugh taxation

    Rye House & Lydde

    American Dirt track track on the half mile or even mile tracks , is nothing like what you would see here , in the usa dirt track is one of the disciplines for the AMA championship so big names from all motorcylcle sports compete in amercian dirt track ..

    Rye House & Lydde

    at least when the whole lot ceases the bikes wont go to waste like speedway bikes will , dirt track is a niche style of customisation of motorcycles in a similar vein to Cafe racers

    Rye House & Lydde

    a mate of mine helped Peter Boast start short track uk , made all the number boards and visited various promoters , wound up in kings lynn hospital with broken ribs and a punctured lung after getting run over in the first meeting . never rode short track again ,

    Rye House & Lydde

    yep seen the 16 lapper ,and have seen flat track ,short track, oval track , dirt track,track track or whatever it's called this week , the only comparison between the 2 , both go anticlockwise round a speedway track , I saw a round of the European flat track championship in belgium once .even the locals who are not the biggest speedway fans didn't like it ,
