    Where is SCB

    Possibly but some people on here are very quick to discover old members under a new name as they give themselves away after a while with their style of writing. Adonis for example didn't last long with his. All I can say is heaven help new members in a month or two's time.

    Where is SCB

    Well I wouldn't. He's in his 30's now isn't he so let him rent one of the houses he was always going on about as he thought people who had mortgages were stupid.

    Where is SCB

    I'm sure Mummy and Daddy will have him back home again so doubt that will happen unfortunately.

    Unfair advantage - starting gates

    Seem to remember a rider flipping over on the concrete start at the old Blackbird Road track and breaking his back. I used to know his name but sadly it's no longer stored.
  5. Colin Cook? Happy memories of one of my favourite Leicester riders. Agree about the race though ~ brilliant.

    Leicester V Somerset 03.09.18

    Very impressed with how Connor has improved this season riding for Coventry and lately Leicester. He has come on tremendously well and must be one of the few riders who rides the Beaumont Park track really well. Pleased he has now been signed as an asset for 2019.

    Brummies v Coventry NL Wed 29th Aug

    Do you think Mick will want the team to get to the play-offs and have an extra match? I have my doubts because he must have lost loads of money this season running the Bees at Leicester.
  8. Yes that's the one. There were others involved originally in Leicester opening but one by one they quit, before getting the boot himself during a match against Kings Lynn when he stormed up to the referees box because he had accidentally turned the lights off. Can't remember the year but must be 3 or 4 seasons ago? I am wondering regarding the shape of the track if it would be worthwhile actually asking the current team what needs to be done to make it a better racing track as riders must surely have a better idea. Perhaps then there could be one last ditch attempt during the Winter to make alterations to improve it so it doesn't have this awful reputation for processional racing and lose more fans.
  9. No Sam didn't design it. Well, he did have input in the first place but then went back home for a wedding (I think) and while he was away David Hemsley went his own way and carried on with the track how he wanted it. Result ~ poor processional racing for years.

    The need for reserves?

    I don't know but we at Leicester were grateful for our reserve tonight who had 7 rides and was top scorer with 15 points. Saved us from a worse thrashing than losing by 10 points. Thank you Nicolaj Busk Jakobsen who again piled up the points guesting for the Lions.
  11. Well, it took place as I've checked and seen some photos. I will try to find out results. Edit...... First person couldn't help as he was too busy taking photos so now asking Russell Paine, but apparently he is difficult to contact so will just have to wait and see if he replies.
  12. Oh well that's my decision made then. If it's going to help Poole then I won't mind at all if the Lions lose again. Got quite used to it now anyway.

    Speedway Star Question

    Yes and I'm sure the original inventor of the 'Whoosh' has now been Whooshed himself which is quite funny really.

    Speedway Star Question

    Must be me as I thought he was being sarcastic not serious.
  15. Ah so that's where it's come from. I don't like it anyway as I can't keep clapping my hands together for a minute due to arthritis but I can keep quiet. They had a minutes applause at Peterborough recently and I had to stop half way through making me feel a bit disrespectful to the memory of Bob Dugard.
