  1. Presenters And Announcers

    The IOW Facebook page is saying that their centre green Presenter Chris Popple is standing down because of a combination of poor health and logistics. That’s a shame - I quite liked his style - but I assume it will leave a vacancy for someone looking to get involved. Barry Bishop seems to be a reasonable guy so I’m sure he would be happy to receive an approach from anyone interested.

  3. Isle Of Wight 2018

    Unless I’ve missed it, the NL points limit is still to be confirmed. Are the Warriors jumping the gun with these early signings?

  5. IOW Facebook reporting that they plan to run in the SDL in 2018 using riders from their training school.
  6. Promoter's Agm!

    So can a side use more than one tac sub and will that rider still use black and white helmet?
  7. Isle Of Wight 2017

    Looks like Somerset won the award so well done to them and congratulations to the other nominees.
  8. Isle Of Wight 2017

    This week’s Speedway Star shows that the IOW have been nominated for a community club award by the WSRA. Hope they win. Glasgow, Somerset and Rye House also nominated. Result at the dinner on 11 November.
  9. Places To Practice?

    Isle of Wight training school is called My First Skid. Has a website and Facebook page with details. Gets very good reviews.

    How long before Christina gets a GP? Has regularly proved her worth at FIM events overseas.

    Looks like Christina Turnbull is the meeting referee.
  12. Ellis with wrist injury and Bates withdrawn at Glasgow tonight. Neil Vatcher's phone must be white hot at the moment. Hope the boys are OK.
  13. There is an explanation on the Eagles website.
  14. Iow V Cradley 21.9.17

    Just back to my mainland base. Bit one sided but given the Cradley team it was understandable. None the less both teams did their best with the wins for Campos and Bailey in heats 5 & 6 the highlights for me. Got to say the IOW club do go the extra mile and put customers first. I saw the announcer who is usually in the referees box go out of his way to escort a visiting couple who were new to the track from the snack bar to the pits. Great customer care and PR just backs up what most people say about the Warriors.
  15. Iow V Cradley 21.9.17

    As I'm on the south coast this week, going over for this. Shame the Heathens have run out of time for play offs nevertheless this should be a decent fixture with Island specialists Danny Ayres and Josh Bailey in the visitors line up.
