    Poole v Somerset. prem B 27/8/18 12.30pm.

    Did Fortune favour Poole? Doyle having to pull up on 1st lap of heat 15 might have saved the points for Poole.

    The problem with speedway I guess! It shouldn't matter, the same rule applies to all sides.

    Why are the management committee not getting involved, the rules clearly state that where the clubs cannot agree a date, they should step in & set a date. 16.1.3 It is the duty of the Staging Promotion to ensure that all Fixtures are completed and in the event of it being necessary to re-arrange a Team Fixture, the Promoter(s) shall mutually agree a re-staging date. Should they fail to agree the sole authority to specify a date and/or venue for the re-staging shall lie with the BSPA MC.

    Still think Terry's having the wool pulled over his eyes. Stadia UK have changed the plans so many times in the last 10 years & going on their record with building new stadiums, I'm not holding my breath.

    Somerset v Poole Prem B. 20/8/18

    Come on, SS never lets the truth get in the way of a good argument," if Poole win it's good racing", if Poole lose, "it's from the gate rubbish.

    Poole win for me, too many Swindon riders are inconsistent at present.

    They have submitted new plans since that do not fit in with the design of the so say stadium originally submitted. No approval of the new stadium plans has yet to be agreed & housing developers have written with concern to the new plans. Read what you will of that & the fact that Stadia UK have never built a new stadium to date. Remember Reading & what happened to their so called new stadium. The supporters of Torquay United FC are having problems with Stadia UK, who now own them & surprise, surprise, they want to relocate their stadium & replace it with a new stadium elsewhere. Luckily for Torquay supporters, Torbay Council own the leasehold of the stadium & they are refusing to sell the leasehold until such time as a new stadium is built. Watch that space & see how long the council will hold out.
  9. Nothing hard about averages, divide number of points scored by number of rides & multiply by 4. Simple arithmetic really, it gives all riders a 4 ride average, as not all riders get 4 rides. Reserves often get only 3 rides or sometimes 7, 2 riders from each side in all meetings that go to heat 15 will get 5 rides. Thus the formula for averages judges all riders a 4 ride average, to enable team building.

    Stadia UK are pure Bovine excrement. IMHO they have no intention of building a new stadium. They pulled a flanker over Swindon council, when they got them to amend the building restrictions, allowing them to build houses before the stadium was built. Once that happened, game over.
  11. Yes but those rides will be against Zach or one of our top 5, who I'm sure can live with him. He didn't score well at Somerset last night.
  12. Yes but he's up against Zach tonight which should knock a few points off of those points. Zach is flying now & won the National Grass Track championship last w/e.
  13. It was agreed for Swindon, as the original fixed race nights were Monday & Thursday but were then changed to Monday & Wednesday because some Championship sides objected. Swindon have a problem with Wednesdays as there are restricted nights due to the greyhound racing. Swindon were given dispensation for a number of meetings due to this. As the Monday & Thursdays were agreed by the international board to be GB's fixed nights, the BSPA should have stood firm & told the clubs that objected to move up to the PL or shut up. Wednesday nights have caused problems for the clubs that have Danish riders as that is the protected night for Denmark.
  14. The long delay on Wednesday was due to very rain @ 5.00pm, which left the track flooded in places. Hans Andersen tweeted the following morning on what a good job the track staff had done.
  15. Don't think that there's any country in the world that takes speedway more seriously than Poland. Do you object to Polish teams win at all costs attitude?
