    Wimbledon Reunion

    John Hyam has had many chances and blown them all.His time is up and isn't going to be taken seriously any more on here imo.He posts this a while after trying to bait the Belle Vue fans and trying to bait many others.He who lives by the swords dies by the sword And I guess someone who prides himself on his honesty and integrity,but never takes John Hyam to task or keeps his word of never posting on the forum again is also on shaky ground ....... Good thread,just the wrong person posted it
  2. Seen a few pics of her and it raised an eyebrow,but was I the only one who was surprised at Greg and how different he seemed at the GP?Maybe it is a while since I have seen him on tv,but he looked a bit strange to me.Thinner?Older?

    Alarmingly Low Crowds

    Not sure that is true.Lowly Ice Hockey also seems to announce attendances around Europe including the UK league

    Time Travel

    Sort of made my mind up for which day,just not sure about which meetings i'd like to see The day:06.08.1928 The meetings in London area on that Bank Holiday Monday were Wimbledon (40,000 crowd) High Beech 2 meetings,1 morning + 1 afternoon Lea Bridge 2 meetings 1 afternoon and 1 evening which was abandoned due to bad light Stamford Bridge (30,000 crowd) West Ham Crystal Palace had a gymkhana with some dirt track races I know Wimbledon,High Beech and Lea Bridge culd be done in the day as Noel Johnson rode in all 3,and Wimbledon and Stamford Bridge could also be done as Art Pechar rode in those.Wonder if with a motorbike or car it would have been possible to catch a few heats at each of those tracks? and get to see some greats like Pechar,Sprouts Elder,Jim Kempster,Roger Frogley,Frank Arthur and Mart Seiffert etc The Swindon track at Gorse Hill also held a meeting the same day Thanks to Brian Collins work on the 1928 season vie the Speedway Researcher site
  7. Great,super You'll be telling us that Greyhounds don't make as much noise as speedway bikes next.Thanks for the insight
  8. I was going to ask how a Falkirk fans knows anything about big stadiums and big crowds........

    I have mentioned this a few times,but was amazed the first time I went to the Wills Internationale to see a massive queue weaving its way through the car park,and I was at the stadium fairly early.At Wimbledon in the early 70s we'd have maybe 3 meetings per season where there would be quite big queues.Can only imagine what it would have been like in the 40s and 50s.

    I was thinking of specific meetings,because knowing my luck i'd travel back to 1932 and the meeting at Crystal Palace or Stamford Bridge etc would have been called off that day

    Alarmingly Low Crowds

    I like the 'open day' idea that G├╝strow do.A day for the kids really with face painting,bouncy castle etc,but also junior speedway and for anyone in the crowd a chance to do a bit of cycle speedway.The pits are also open for evyrone to have a look at how the youngsters and their fathers/mothers are going about setting up the bikes.A look behind the scenes as it were,and it is free to get in Does it help with the crowds?I can't say,but as it has been going on for a number of years,i guess the club thinks it worthwhile.At least it helps attract a few youngsters to the sport and gets the club out into the community http://www.speedevent.de/mcg/

    How Far Do You Have To Travel?

    Have you been to Teterow before?If you want to drink Riesling,you'll have to buy it before you get to the track in my experience

    How Far Do You Have To Travel?

    All good suggestions Personally not sure.I was looking at maybe a South London derby...Crystal Palace v Stamford Bridge.Maybe Wimbledon against one of those,but when I looked at meetings both Ray Tauser and Billy Lamont were missing due to injury for instance.But I now think I should look at the national Trophy maybe as there were more heats.But also possibly an England v Australia test.Still searching or my meeting,that is why I was interested in others thoughts.But Deano's idea of the chance of 2 meetings in 1 day is a good one

    Polish Xtra/nice Leagues/etc Live On Tv

    I note today that a plaque commemorating Antoni Woryna has been unveiled and the wording on that plaque state "Pierwszy Polski Medalista Indywidualnych Mistrzostw Swiata Reprezentant ROW Rybnik",which shows the importance of the world final.No mention of any other competitions at all

    Polish Xtra/nice Leagues/etc Live On Tv

    Yes,the British rider who has on his own won as many world titles as the great Polish nation.He can do amazing things like win world titles and ride in Polish league.Maybe your riders need to ask him how he does that?

    I'll take that as "i don't know why" then

    Polish Xtra/nice Leagues/etc Live On Tv

    In the end no-one remembers who passed who on the first mile of a marathon,it is who gets to the finishing line first.You don't seem to understand the concept of a GP season.I was not trying to be antagonistic,just asking a genuine question of why Poland have failed so often to produce someone who is capable of winning the main title in speedway,not just since BSI have been producing the track surface,but also on days when Poland done them on their own.I mean,it is always claimed that Germany produced a track to give them a world champ,why were Poland never capable of doing this?

    Polish Xtra/nice Leagues/etc Live On Tv

    They have to be better than most previous polish riders,as despite producing some great ones all they have to show for it is the same as lowly Germany when it comes to individual world titles.Something must be wrong with the polish mentality to fail so often,i guess?
  20. Fingers crossed for this one,not only for Belle Vue and British speedway,but particularly for my mate 'conkers' who I am sure is desperate to get a few photos of actual racing

    How Far Do You Have To Travel?

    Anyway ignoring the knobs attempts to bring yet another thread down to his stupid level,my hopes of getting to a meeting soon have been dashed yet again.There is a meeting going on at the moment at my local track.But unfortunately due to family commitments I couldn't attend.I was hoping to get to the track a bit further away on Thursday,but they have already called the meeting off!!!Which means if I want to get to a meeting Thursday i'll have to travel 2 hours or more....

    How Far Do You Have To Travel?

    Comedy Gold,just like one of the other Admin getting all upset because he has posted 70 or 80 photos and no-one has made a comment!!!! Dream team you are

    How Far Do You Have To Travel?

    I don't 'claim' anything.He stated you got on his nerves and upset his wife previously,so he set up a site that you are not welcome to join.That was enough for me and others to follow And from what I hear you hounded another guy(Omar) off one site,probably because he was posting more interesting stuff than you and also had the sense to block you Your own site that weird world thing is just copying stuff from elsewhere and getting hardly any response the last time I looked,which say' it all

    Speedway Champions League ?

    According to you rmando is never to blame for anything!!! I wonder just what he does then apart from avoid taking the blame for all the problems that have occurred during his reign.He isn't just a figure head is he???Of course after all the disasters we have had during his reign he should shoulder a fair proportion of the blame I suppose you believe Sepp Blatter when he say's he had nothing to do with and had no knowledge of all the buying votes for World Cup Finals as well?
