    Birmingham Brummies 2020

    It was reported the rent has been increased by 100% ! So if we manage to get through the 2022 season & break even, what happens if the rent is increased for the 2023 season. It's clear the stadium owners just don't want the speedway at Perry Barr by trying to squeeze the club out one way or another.

    Birmingham v Edinburgh ko cup

    BIRMINGHAM’S task of overhauling Edinburgh tonight has just been made even harder. Fans’ favourite Paco Castagna has been ruled out with illness and will be replaced by American ace Dillon Ruml. Already 18-points down from the first leg heading into the deciding leg of the Knockout Cup tie with Edinburgh, boss Laurence Rogers admits Castagna’s absence is a big blow. He said: "Paco rang me to say he had bad flu symptoms and was confined to bed. "It's a massive shame he'll miss this one because he has been piling up the points for us at reserve, especially at Perry Barr. "We thank Dillon Ruml for stepping in - he rode really, really well for Plymouth not so long back and we're confident he can come in and do a job for the Brummies tonight." Edinburgh have also been forced into a change of guest at reserve with Dan Gilkes now standing in for Jason Edwards. If Birmingham fail to win by more than 18-points tonight will be the last meeting of the season – and possibly forever unless new owners are found to take over the club from outgoing duo Peter and David Mason.

    That statement saying the crowd is only a third pre covid is a lie ! I have been to all the meetings this season & I'm not blind.

    Birmingham v Plymouth

    Well i don't know where you live but i am 3 miles from Perry Barr & there was 2 very heavy thunder storms in the afternoon, so saying there was no rain in Brum is not correct.

    You hit the nail on the head. The Masons just turn up on a Wednesday from there base in Sussex & expect to see the stadium full without any promoting of the meeting apart to the diehards who will still turn up anyway.

  22. BIRMINGHAM Speedway have put their season on hold with immediate effect.Club owners Peter and David Mason have revealed ‘things have to change’ with numbers at Perry Barr for the club to become viable.Like other venues, the Brummies are restricted to the amount of fans they can allow in the stadium and as a consequence they are suffering heavy losses.The situation has not been helped by the pay on the door option being temporarily suspended due to Covid regulations.They are holding out hope for an increase in audience numbers after June 21 to enable them to continue with their Wednesday night action – but for the time being the Brummies won’t race again until July 1 at the earliest.Peter Mason said: “The constraints with which we are working in are making it impossible to run as a sustainable business right now.“We are desperately trying to make it work and we are determined to keep this club afloat, a club with such a rich heritage and a focal point of the city, carrying the Birmingham name.“A lot of people fought over many years to bring the sport back to Birmingham and we don’t want to be the ones who oversee its demise. On the contrary, we are determined to make this work and provide a bright future for this wonderful sport and wonderful club with a very loyal fan base.“But right now we are working with our hands tied behind our back. I must thank everyone who has worked with us to get us this far and we don’t want to let all the hard work go to waste.“That said, things have to change for us to continue at Perry Barr throughout the rest of this season.”David Mason added: “A large part of our following is from the older generation, some of which are in their 70s and 80s and do not shop online. Many don’t even have access to a computer and this has badly affected our crowd levels.“We were advertising pay on the gate until this was blocked 24-hours before the meeting and this decision alone cost us valuable revenue and we drove away from the stadium knowing we had lost thousands of pounds.“That quite simply cannot continue and we are taking this decision to protect the long term future of the sport at Perry Barr Stadium.“We would like to thank our fans and we need them more than ever before if and when we can restart from July 1. It’s absolutely vital they stay with us and as summer holidays approach we will be actively looking at encouraging more youngsters to the sport.”
