  1. Scorpions 2018

    Certainly one worth considering...
  2. Scorpions 2018

    Please....none of those names mentioned above.
  3. Redcar 2018

    Or mpt? .. heard rumours he's heading your way.
  4. Scorpions 2018

    A new look Scorpions..Decent top end.. And strength in depth...7.5 for a couple of reserves... Happy with that so far.

    If Glasgow can get Lewi on reliable machinery, they'll have one hell of a rider... Mechanical gremlins proved fairly costly for him last season. Seems we're well advanced with team building..Three more signings to be revealed at midnight.. Late night for us Scunny fans.

    I cant see Lyager either, would've been a good signing though. Unfortunately Id say no to Wilko.. last season he seemed to have lost the will to attack round the outside, stuck to the inside too much for my liking. Shame cos on his day there was no finer sight than Wilko blasting round the deep stuff. Mountain would be good.. I have heard his name rumoured as a possible. Whats happened to Berge? Thought he was all but sorted... seems to have gone very quiet on that front.
  7. The Speedway Star also revealed the amount of the bung as £28,000..... Stand up all those promoters that could be tempted... all those remained seated.. I suggest you're lying. Given the state of British Speedway...That's a big sum of money, its wrong on all counts...but you can understand the temptation.
  8. The line in the SS refers to the 'suspended' Peterborough boss Rathbone.... and the 'BSPA' vice-chairman Godfrey. Doesn't say Rob is suspended....at least not the way I've read it.
  9. Who'd want the job of Chairman/Vice Chairman anyway? Are there promoter's actually queuing up for the job or do they get pushed into it? It's a position that requires much time and effort with little or no reward', just plenty hassle... Let the SCB take over the roll.
  10. Statement still on the SCB website though..

    Being realistic.. Good sponsorship, no rent, bar takings, food takings, thriving amateur meetings, training sessions, mini track sessions... I believe all contribute to the running of The Scorpions. Little old Scunthorpe are perhaps better off than many of you think.

    You can add Scunny to your list.

    I sincerely hope we go with Josh Auty again.. Good Average and more than capable, not to mention entertaining. Hoping too that Jake Allen returns next year. A bonafide number one is a must, if previous posters are right in assuming Stevie Worrall, that would do nicely. With Kerr seemingly bound for Glasgow... Douglas (no visa), Toft (no thankyou)... Aarnio and Bailey (team needs refreshing, so thanks but no thanks). A fundamental rebuild is on the cards. Would love to see Jorgensen back.. should he decide to ride in the championship.

    I've been on a bike but never raced... But.. as much as I take you're point about the quality of racing.. crowds are down because supporters are increasingly peed off with rider power and meetings that only run to ten heats etc... I've been to Peterborough many times, decent racing but not a patch on Scunny IMO.

    I don't particularly give a flying **** as to what any rider thinks of our track conditions...it is what it is, no different to anywhere else... just ride to conditions and stop whinging. Rider power is my pet hate, its the one thing that grates me about speedway. I've actually seen some great racing at Scunny in all conditions... amateur meetings raced at minus 3 degrees... very wet meetings with riders navigating puddles... hot weather meetings where its been virtually impossible to get any moisture in the track...Riders are paid to ride.. just do it. If a meeting starts, race it to its conclusion.
