    Jim is the BSPA expert guy on mechanical issues, whilst Kelvin is an ardent ex rider come technical guy who fronts the PL TV average. Kelvin is highly regarded for his technical views and has already endorsed their use in our leagues. He's probably already tested them.

    Visa criteria

    I thought the same at the time. There has to be a sponsor who makes a lot of guarantees.

    Was there not a plan approved by the council late in 2018 for the provision of a large trailer park for our lovely travelling fraternity. I know we had a debate on here about how it would affect the training track. I was told it was down the line, and the training track could be safe for a few years yet.

    Unfair advantage - starting gates

    I remember Sun Street from the early 60's. Was the track sunk down below the level of the grass/soil, cos I can remember I couldn't see the lower half to the riders on the opposite side. Might just have been they hadn't cut the grass of course. Adams, Harris and Peter Kelly I think were riding for Stoke.

    Everything seems to be seen as an own goal to you at the moment. Out of the picture are we.

    You have to remember juniors still want to do their best for themselves and their team. In the Northern Junior Jeague the races alternate between 500's and 125's so you only have 1 race interval to solve a problem. A warmed up second bike can get you out quick on a running bike, and deal with the fault sometime afterwards. Even juniors like to take all their rides for the teams sake.

    Swindon Stadium

    Yes, but not a farce created by speedway which is what you seem to imply. How about a mention for StadiaUK.

    Thank you to the BSPA

    No different from any other sport.

    But it wasn't a farce at the time, was it.

    Yep, saw them at New Cross in 1963 and Jimmy Squib was also riding.

    I agree with your philosophy. This reduction this year is a deliberate attempt to lower the level of the Championship and get a bigger gap between the 2 top leagues. These are unusual times, and there might only be a small reduction, or none at all, next year if the overall objective is achieved.

    No, you have picked my up the wrong way. Like I said 'move forward to stop a back flip" just in case with lower revs.

    Wel that's the point when changing points totals as it skews the comparison for following years. Sometimes they ignore it because the difference has been 42, 42.5 and 43, and 45 I think, and the difference has been regarded as minimal. It was similar the the FTR in the then Elite leagues when riders like Kyle Newman and Adam Ellis were riding more against fellow FTR's and all of them got inflated averages for the following season. It's to be hoped that there will be a conversion ratio to make it a level playing field for following years, when it's probably 42ish which would be reinstated to maintain the standard of the league.
