    Also it is not all Swindonians that are losing their jobs, many people travel to Swindon from as afar afield as South Wales & Gloucester to work at Honda. How they cope with coming from South Wales on a daily basis I do not know.

    Assets and rider poaching

    Wolves sold him to Swindon, he wasn't poached. They wanted to sign him on loan when Wolves did not use him & were told to buy him if they wanted him. No poaching there, it was Wolves decision to let him go.

    Assets and rider poaching

    Doyle wasn't an asset at Leicester. He was originally a Poole asset & they exchanged assets with Swindon with Magic moving to Poole. Doyle rode on loan to Leicester.

    From what Matt Ford said in the Echo, it will be interesting to see how far he is willing to stretch the budget for riders this season. Not only will it affect the Pirates but every body else unless they want to lose money. If Matt is saying money is in short supply, then it will be for all the other clubs.

    There was nothing in last seasons reg's that stop him riding on a Championship converted average. It only states that if a rider is given a 4 average, he can not drop below 4 during that season. It does not mention following seasons.

    Checking on last seasons rules that 4 only applies to that season, it does not mention following seasons. Now that Berg has a Championship ridden average, I can see no rule that states he can not ride on a converted averted average.

    Not sure but I read it on a post where the promoter said that the 2.5% only applies to British riders, which makes sense if they are trying to promote more home talent.

    Isn't Summers an Aussie & if so, they don't get the 205% discount, only applies to Brit's.

    How does 4.09 convert to 3? I make that 2.73 on conversion.

    Premiership Play-offs 2019

    They may have to now as BSPA has become a ltd co & accounts have to be declared. BSPA are in charge of the p/offs.

    Premiership Play-offs 2019

    No it would be simple to pool all the semi-final & final income & divide on a % basis between the 3 teams. 4 in the p/offs from a 7 team league is nonsense.

    Finishing Averages Table 2018

    It might be in theory but not by the rules as the averages change on 1st of the following based on rides up to the 23rd of the month.

    All Clubs are For Sale

    They have some monetary value as the club that has the registration gets a loan fee from the club he rides for.

    All Clubs are For Sale

    I used to think that the asset system was illegal under the Bosman ruling but I now believe that this is incorrect. The clubs only own the league registration not the rider. The rider is free to ride for any club that he wants. He can refuse to ride for the club that owns the asset, as Kyle Howarth has done in the past & probably many other riders have also done so in the past. The difference between this & football was that the football player was not free to do this. Speedway riders are classed as self employed, unlike footballers who are employees of the club.
