  1. I know it's only NL but Connor Mountain got a 15pt maximum for Coventry at Monmore Green earlier in the season. Will be tough but it would not surprise me if he manages a few points.

    Coventry Bees Nl ?

    Pretty much the same for us I think. He has improved his average by a point so he's doing his job for us.

    I guess postponing two fixtures gets people thinking and putting their theories online but the two postponments have been explained, one was so Leicester could prepare of the televised meeting and the 2nd is the same time as the World Cup Final. I'd be worried if they next one is postponed unless of weather.

    I'm glad you've responded about the campaign and clarified the group's position on Bees at Leicester. You shouldn't have to defend yourself. Keep it going Jeff, Dave and all.

    Simply because if we had a track in Coventry we'd still be Coventry Bees. I don't see why if we race elsewhere temporarily we should change our name. The move to Leicester is a short term move not full time. If it was full time then that's a different situation. The Save Coventry Speedway group number one priority is saving the stadium and if not ensure another site is put in its place. We need a stadium in or close to Coventry, otherwise (long term) we won't have a club anyway. It would be nice if the promotion and group were on the same page so we could have a half successful NL club while fighting for the stadium but that won't happen. Also just to be aware that there is likely to be added protection on the stadium as advised by the government planning officer overseeing the local plan.

    Of course its Coventry Bees. It's not where we want to be (League and track) and its far from ideal but for me I'll follow the team through thick and thin. If other don't want to call the club Coventry Bees anymore that's upto them but I cannot agree with that. The track day on Saturday has also called off to allow sky set up for Monday's meeting. Bees v Buxton the following Sunday also call off as the World Cup Final is at 4pm the same day.

    Unfortunately this is what happens when you don't own your own stadium. The 4s wasn't a Bees promotion meeting was it? Electrical work was the reason for the Buxton call off but no idea about this Sunday? Maybe the Monday tv fixture had something to do with it?

    Whatever standard of rider we have in UK it doesn't matter until the sport is promoted far better than it is now and with new ideas. The sport is so lacking in that respect, it has no chance unless that part of it improves significantly.

    Now we are likely to have greater protection over Brandon a new site might need to be available for us to use if houses on Brandon is ever granted. Also BE would likely have to pay for at least part of it, maybe even all. Might not be worth it for them when they've had bids of several million pounds from people wanting to keep it as a motorsport venue.
  10. It's what happens when you change the Thursday fixed race night to a Wednesday. It's about time the BSPA showed some actual leadership and stop pandering to two or three clubs every year.

    Don't think any decision is made on next year but I'd guess they'd want the crowds to improve a little to do the same next year. If Brandon was saved then the club would come back, why wouldn't it? Either Horton would run it and not lose money or sell it to whoever is interested in running both sports in the stadium. Horton is willing to sell.

    I do disagree with that. The government appointed planning inspector recommended that Brandon is given greater protection which would make planning for houses extremely difficult unless there is another facility within the borough or nearby. The group made that happen. Don't get me wrong it's a long shot to save Brandon but this does give us a greater chance to do that or even a new stadium. We shall see what Brandon Estates do when planning is refused.

    Promotion are running the team and Save Cov Speedway group are campaigning. I don't think there is any chance of Speedway or Stox being at Brandon next season at this stage so it'll either be Leicester or no where. There are still 8 'home' meetings left plus the 4s so when it gets into the latter stages of the season we may hear what the plan is (if any) then.
  14. To be honest they should've kept it Mondays and Thursday and just told Ipswich and Redcar that if they want to name d/u riders then they don't get priority. Simple.
