    You don't know me, and there's no need to make personal digs.

    Although you answered your own question for yourself (and said you weren't listening to the commentary anyway, which rather negates your point), for me it devalues not only the live coverage but also the recording as a part of speedway's history. At its best, speedway is the greatest sport on the planet; those in the privileged position of being paid to commentate on it should aspire to deliver real words that befit the action, not whoas, wows and ridiculously elongating the last syllable of a rider's name.

    It's such a shame that when anyone looks back at recordings of what was one of the greatest GPs ever, those incredible moments will have those two with their whoas and wows as the soundtrack, unable to produce real commentary to match the high quality of the racing.
  4. I suppose the distance does make it so much harder for them to find words other than "big" to describe pretty much every race and every 5-1.

    The Starts

    Agreed. They should not allow mechanics onto the track. If riders want to make adjustments they should return to the pits under a 60-seconds time allowance.
  6. The exception that proves the rule. Among the many reasons I stopped going to meetings was because I tired of hearing riders describing a track as great (because it gave them an easy ride) yet the racing was dull for those who had paid to watch.
  7. Pearson hoping and hoping for a Lindgren exclusion.
  8. So what if he was in front, or, more accurately, marginally ahead with his opponent alongside? It doesn't give a rider the right to ride dangerously. If Bellego had been left enough room he wouldn't have crashed.

    Did Pearson just say Holder is in the final?

    Woffinden gave the ref a reason to exclude him. Riders know they have to be ready even if the others are not.

    Give it up, Tatum and Pearson, he's excluded, even if you include his name in the race commentary!
  12. You're right and I've pointed this out a couple of times in previous threads: the original dimensions of the speedway track at BP were in almost exactly the same proportions (width of centre green to the distance between the apexes of the corners) as those of the cycle track at Slater Street. A bizarre coincidence?

    Leicester v Poole. Prem. 9/7/18. BT sports.

    Indeed, the dimensions of the track he built were remarkably close in proportions to those of the cycle speedway track in the city. He got a lot wrong. Some saw the signs early on and stopped going. Sadly the "improvements" have done nothing to attract me and others back.
  14. Hardly dirty; there was a gap, just not enough of it.
