    Gorzow GP. Saturday August 25th 2018

    Friends in high places I was Adam Skornicki’s mechanic
  3. My polish friends just say “dansk” where we say gerdansk
  4. You don’t pronounce the G in Gdańsk either and Łódź isn’t as it reads in English

    I think it happens in other sports like cycling too, if you google uk anti doping it tells you about out of competition testing and I assume all other nations have the same things

    No i meant at their home, nicki pedersen had them turn up at his house last month and I remember seeing hampel having them do it too

    I want to see the tests go further, some of the top riders get tested at home at any time, obviously cost comes into it but I would like to see at least 2 riders get tested at every meeting, I’m sure riders would be more than happy doing that

    There is also the point of he hasn’t actually failed any drug test, he just refused to take one, we know he is guilty but even in court it would be hard to prove

    Is he still riding in the british masters grasstrack this weekend ? As grasstrack is a different sport and he has been banned by the SCB and not the ACU

    Speedway Star June 9

    Could speedway star get for a future edition an in-depth interview with frank ebdon assuming he is still alive and at least watches speedway on tv and his views on modern speedway and his views on today’s starts ,excessive gardening and jumping the starts, he was the master of strict and slick meetings, something we don’t either of today

    The continuing decline of Speedway

    Purely by chance due to work and getting stuck behind an accident on the m6 I ended up at Belle Vue last night, so I thought I would share my fan experience, I brought a ticket in the grandstand which was £21, now to me that is way over priced for league speedway, so I took to my seat a read the programme, around 7pm the crowd which was a good size crowd filled the stadium, the announcer said we will interview the team managers around 7.10 however belle vues team manager was working on the first bend with a rake while we were treated to 40 mins of tractor racing, no interviews, there were a family next to me with 2 very young lads who had never been to speedway before but thought they would try it, around 7.20 there was an announcement that the meeting would be delayed to let the que’s that were still outside in, however that turned out to be a bit of a lie as some rides equipment hadn’t turned up,think they were caught in the same motorway problem as me ,but by 7.40 the kids next to me had got a bit bored and quite frankly so had I, chase the ace works very well in raising some excitement in the crowd, finally what felt like forever we get what I thought was a very well thought out parade and then the racing started, 2 heats and then the tractor is back out, apparently the track was to grippy, another 2 heats then more tractor racing, at around 8.30 i had seen 4 heats and 50 mins of tractor racing, the first half the meeting was pretty much gate and go stuff with nothing happening after the first corner, the match being close kept the interest up ,we had a couple of jumped starts and riders going back to pit gate to fiddle with their bikes, more delays (make it so no mechanic allowed on track in between restarts ) then the racing livened up so they had an interval,the second half the meeting was excellent and Kings Lynn deserved their win but I just felt like a few little things added up to spoil the entertainment, the racing, chase the ace and the presentation was all great but it’s just those little things that drag it down and kill the buzz and as I said it’s too expensive, the family next to me didn’t seem that taken in by it left before the end, this is not just about Belle Vue but speedway in general
  13. Pawlicki didn’t deserve that
  14. Unless he excluded Bartoz for tape touching that is a shocking decision , he had 3 choices, exclude pawlicki, all 4 back bunching or all 4 back unsatisfactory start with warning for Bartoz and he made a forth and dreadful decision
  15. Planning to go to this meeting
  16. I couldn’t find it on my tv but I found it now
  17. What polish channel is it on ?

    Gorzow GP. Saturday August 25th 2018

    got my tickets yesterday for the gorzow GP and for zielona gora next day,staying in kostryn on the polish border 27 miles from the track, love my trips to Poland
  19. Do you know what the meeting time for zielona gora v tarnow is on Sunday 26th
  20. On the rare occasion I have been to a gym I have thought what a bunch of idiots, never thought I’d say that looking in speedway pits
  21. Did I read it right that he got a yellow card for that incident which clearly was an accident and no intent
  22. not classic racing but a good match, even with holta I think the score would be similar, Torun seem to be crumbling, if grudziadz win that puts my old mate skornicki under massive pressure for his team to beat leszno later
  23. Hampel is really struggling, anybody why the presenters have mentioned Simon wig a couple of times ?
  24. The track looks great and I think they ready to go so why arnt they ?
