    Fingers and everything else crossed we can watch some racing in August! I’m sure every other promoter will take exactly the same precautions as Chris Louis has just said he’ll be doing at Ipswich. PPE for staff, socially distancing, hand sanitizing are all perfectly doable to make a couple of hours in the open air watching Speedway no more or less of a risk than most of us will encounter in our day to day lives. Let’s get on with it.

    Getting frustrating now with this glorious weather. How good would it be getting to Foxhall tonight? What’s even more frustrating is seeing packed beaches all over the country, being able to drink a pint in a pub next weekend and then go and sit in a Cinema and watch a movie, but not able to watch Speedway outdoors! The 2 meters rule being reduced to 1(plus) would surely make it even easier for the majority if not all clubs to implement social distancing in Stadiums?

    I certainly won’t be standing there for a couple of hours with a face mask on either. I love a bit of Speedway but not that much.

    League to run over two seasons

    Think it’s widely accepted that the virus doesn’t transmit as well in the open air as opposed to indoors so can’t really compare the risks between indoor classrooms and outdoor stadia.

    Only met London Witch the once after only knowing her from this forum, lovely lady. So very sad bless her.

    Crikey I haven’t had that since I was a kid! Used to love a bit of chocolate custard

    Must admit I’ve followed this thread from the beginning and found myself shaking my head in disbelief at some of the contributions. Steve Irving you could have literally made a greatest hits from Bwitcher alone, but I didn’t expect anything less from him in all honesty. Some of the others have been disappointing to say the least.

    What a race this was between Heeps and Max Fricke. Had everything including a big elbow from Fricke down the back straight of the final lap. Box office around Foxhall is Heeps, out and out racer. If you look on the official website in the media clips section, pretty much all of the uploads of the best moments involve Heeps, which is why he should be one of the first names on the team sheet.

    Definitely noticeable to me Baldy. The official Twitter often tweet that view from the start line pre meetings and as a bit of a sad anorak I often zoom in to look at track conditions. Unless the camera is giving a false view there’s more there than I was expecting! Surprised you don’t really see it.

    If you zoom in on the track you can noticeably see the extra banking added to the bends

    Kind of feels like the end of an episode of Bullseye “have a look at what you could have seen”, but there you go

    Will the premiership start on time?

    As a competition, it’s pretty much already over. If and when any racing resumes, you’ll not see the teams listed on the BSPA website so any “winner” at the end of it will be irrelevant and worthless. It is what it is and there’s nothing anyone can do. Such a shame as this was building up to be one of the most anticipated seasons for years with the likes of Crump and Pedersen returning.

    Wasn’t worded particularly well, I was meaning more having an ambulance present for practice as apposed to an official racing meeting when it’s compulsory. Word was that wouldn’t be possible so just wondering if practice could go ahead without one present.

    Still going ahead.

    Why not? They’re all here, all have their equipment and brand new Kevlars ready to go, and the season hasn’t been written off. Rather than sit around doing nothing I’m sure they’d prefer to have a spin for a few hours if the chance is there.

    All riders in the country and “ready to race”. If all riders are here wonder if press and practice will still go ahead as planned? Can you practice without medical cover?
