  1. When is this carnage and waste of time going to stop ? We have riders moving an inch and red lights. Riders making perfect starts and red lights. Isnt it time to stop this rubbish , and go back to red light for tape touching only (apart from 1st bend incidents). If some want to jump let them , the exclusion for touching is on them. Its really grinding my arse now to the point its hardly worth watching.
  2. If that was his best equipment i'd hate to see his worst !
  3. Why didn't the ref let that go when SN penalised himself ?

    Betting in 2019

    Vue are 21/20 @ -6 on bet365

    Belle Vue v Ipswich 03/06/19

    Bet365 have this down as an 2030 tapes up. Is this correct ? And if so why !
  6. A rule change i'd make next year for the semis and final. If you lose the toss in the first leg , you get choice of gates for the second leg. Surely that would be sensible ? Oh hang on , speedway doesnt do sensible.
  7. Have you ever seen a ref change his/her mind ? Nope , me neither.
  8. Losing the gate toss did for them early on. As i said earlier. But yes they've pulled it back a bit.
  9. Contentious ,but that gate toss has won Poole the title. 1 and 3 far superior gates early doors.
  10. Are you having a laugh ? Perhaps you should worry about your own blue groove bumpy dustbowl rather than the usually immaculate OTA. Such irony.

    Bob Dugard RIP

    A great loss , speedway guy through and through. Often used to jump on the County Ground tractor back in the day and do 360's with the grader. Most def Mr Eastbourne speedway. Condolences to his family and friends.

    Leicester v Poole. Prem. 9/7/18. BT sports.

    They should at least rip the starting gates up to make it a fair contest. If ya on gate 4 , you might as well forget it. Thanks for your answer though.

    Do they grade the track ? The blue groove is there every race.

    Has a match ever been run without any overtaking after the first bend ? This could be history , stay glued lol !

    Heat 3. What part of jumping the start didnt the referee see ? Pointless having them sometimes.

    Your memories of NORWEGIANS in BL (1970-89)

    Reider Eide was also a pretty decent longtrack rider , i remember watching him win the first longtrack meeting a couple of miles up the road at Haldon in 1978 , against a damn decent field. Not sure about his results in Europe though.
  18. Not sure anyone saw that coming , not even the most optimistic Wolves fans would have seen that coming. Quicker out the gate and wanted it more.

    Gp Riders Engine Tuners

    Personally i think riders get duped by tuners. You can stick an engine on a dinner plate. It doesnt consist of many parts , and there only so much you can do with them staying within the rules. The difference between the tuners is wafer thin , not enough to make a difference on the track.

    Poole V Swindon Semi Final 1st Leg 11/9/17

    Kelvin says they've had a lot of water (rain) on the track. So why the hell did they have a hose pipe watering down the 1st and 2nd bends ? They must be bonkers.

    Ivan Mauger

    Just glad i had the privilege of watching him most Monday nights for several seasons. You cant compare riders from different era's , its like trying to compare Pele with Messi. Both greats but you cannot compare. Cant be bothered to check , but didnt he in one season only get beaten 7 times , 2 of those were for engine failures ? 11.8 something average . Crazy. Best in his era , no dangers.

    Rebels V Lions Mon 14th Aug

    Like the GP's , i've always said they should have some junior races before a meeting to send the shale around. Can give them the benefit tonight looking at the weather forecast.

    Rebels V Lions Mon 14th Aug

    Hammering down in Exeter now , heading up Burnham way.
  24. Anyone seen any racing yet ? Buster needs to get rid of that 80% clay rubbish , been the most dire meeting i've seen for many a year.
