    No Government Support?

    Well speedway could be in the motorsports? But not much money for that

    No Government Support?

    No ? Not played in schools or local teams ? Just professional ? Must say my knowledge of the sport I practically zero. But thought it was played in schools up north at least

    No Government Support?

    Think it depends on what the money is for. If it is to support grass roots local community sports, then speedway is way down the list in participation I would think. Lot lower than 12th even

    ICE 2021

    So the World championship calendar looks like 16.01 Örnsköldsvik quali 13-14 of something. It say's Jan, but guessing the FIM got it wrong and is Feb Final 1+2 Togliatti 6-7.03 Finals 3+4 Berlin Berlin must look doubtful atm. So we might end up with just one weekend in Russia

    Wimbledon Memories

    Without wishing to open a can of worms here with mention of 4 wheeled action, I was wondering what and where Ronnie Moore was racing when he left speedway for a while to take up auto racing ? I did find something mentioning his lining up alongside Jack Brabham and Sterling Moss on the GP circuit !! Anyone have some actual information on this part of his life ? Not the Atom car stuff, as that has been done a few times already

    Of course. I was just taking the mickey out of some who think the EU act like dictators

    2021 speedway season !

    Doubt it. The EU will put a block on a German produced vaccine leaving to go to the UK
  13. Have you got a dozen or so examples ?

    But here is the news from Sweden 70-plus people, healthcare employees and people in the risk group will be given priority. Only after the summer of next year is Sweden expected to be able to offer corona vaccine to the masses. - If everything works well and several vaccines are approved, we will have been able to give all prioritized one vaccine during the first half of the year, says Sweden's vaccine coordinator Richard Bergström

    2021 speedway season !

    Not sure. They did say Germany should have priority as the government have financed the research firm developing it, but then chuckled a bit saying they might have to share it round the EU !! But I see the EU are negotiating their own supply One of the things was saying if everything worked like clockwork it would take 6 minutes for every vaccine and they wanted 60 centres around the country which would give a max of 300,000 per day Bit it was more technical stuff that still hadn’t come out of the tests which might cause problems even though it was all very hopeful. But they said even if it is good, we might still have to have social distancing and masks till the end of 2021. But I didn’t understand why although I was not alone as one of the guests was also a bit confused with all the technical stuff

    2021 speedway season !

    According to a few experts on german tv last night, it is unlikely to be back to normal by Spring unfortunately

    2021 speedway season !

    It is an issue that got a bit out of control in speedway, with riders doing maybe 5 different leagues, or more if you include the odd Russian or Italian appearance in the past It is also an issue that has caused constant trouble in football with clubs that are paying massive wages losing their players because of international appearance injuries. And now recently cropped up again when players have been diagnosed with Covid whilst on international duty

    2021 speedway season !

    Yes. Saw a number of riders over the weekend looking for teams in 3 leagues, and they weren't looking at the UK.......
  19. You were thinking of a riding career ?????

    Now here's a funny thing....

    Wimbledon were also riding at home the day I was born, but by then Parker had retired. Funny that

    I would have thought they were named after Carshalton

    Has anyone been anywhere yet

    I saw a name mentioned a few days ago around that time. Turned out for Beckenham and then Tooting Tigers. Pete Jarman. Guess it is the same Pete Jarman who later turned to speedway
