    New speedway film

    I don’t think so. Vojens is Vojens in the UK. I think the place is only called Woyens in Germany. Same as Haderslev is Hadersleben in Germany. As it is next year is the 100 anniversary of the border and some of the Danish towns are asking for dual Danish/German town signs

  3. Seen this article from Castagna now. Talk about giving countries where speedway is still just about established some priority. South Africa and of course his old favourite, Argentina. And that Discovery are well established in Asia, so........ https://www.speedweek.com/speedwaygp/news/152697/Exklusiv-Der-Speedway-GP-expandiert-ab-2022-weltweit.html Barely able to hold a straight face as I post this !!!
  4. Tbh, they don't seem to have had great success with their Rally X efforts . The series went from 13 rounds to just 10 last year. Possible 11 next year but the contract is yet to be signed etc
  5. Main thing is they get some new dolly birds in to replace the monster girls. I will miss Vicki Lund and co

    Harlow Greyhound Stadium

    Oh ok,i thought all those building by Hobtoe rd etc were houses and were about 5 minutes walk away. My mistake I guess. Also assumed it must have been some locals that started the petition and are among the 10,000+ .Who knows

    Harlow Greyhound Stadium

    You don't need to go to Harlow,just look at the map you posted to see all the nearby houses!!! I also see with a quick search that there is a campaign by anti-greyhound lobbyists to close the stadium. Not reached their target yet and strangel most supporters seem to be overseas, but the tide is turning against dog racing, just as it is in the States against horse racing https://www.thepetitionsite.com/en-gb/980/623/985/close-harlow-greyhound-stadium/

    New speedway film

    The film will be shown on Danish tv station TV2 on Saturday at 19:15 uk time. I note that you can get a 30 day trial free subscription. Might be worth signing up for someone who is really keen and/ or understands Danish !!
  10. Well the one thing mentioned was making it available on Eurosport rather than pay tv. Remains to be seen really whether they can put new life into the series and bring new venues and new sponsors in.

    This global village comes to a standstill when a bus driver spots the traffic queue too late and has to break sharp sending the passengers flying though the bus. End result a few ambulances on the scene and lots more traffic queues. Such is life in the big city

    At least they would wait in fairly good weather. Waiting at a border for hours on end in freezing weather can’t be much fun I get fed up waiting 15 minutes for a bus

    Markus Jell, currently training with a number of riders in Kamensk. Had to wait 31 hours for all the paper work before he could get over the Russian border!!! https://www.speedweek.com/eisspeedway-racing/news/152496/Markus-Jell-Wurde-nicht-von-Anfragen-ueberrannt.html?fbclid=IwAR0i3mPCcfHxwAE6rbNf0B2YowKvCx0hm7uFC4yIzOqOWJCeMV0qRfv8J-U#.XeDPriU23HQ.facebook
