    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.

    No read it again. It says "The Stands will be demolished when the planning permission is granted. Then new stand etc will be constructed". it will be probably done in 2 stages as new main stand will go what is now the back straight stand & so stand on that side would be demolished 1st & then when that is completed the old main stand would be demolished. That's if it ever happens, I still remain to be convinced.

    They haven't said that they are going to demolish the stadium. They are reshaping the track to 300m's, no planning permission needed for that. It May be a long trip from the pits to the starting line tho', watch those 2 min's lad's.

    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.

    Race for the Top 4

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

    Race for the Top 4

    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.
