  1. To be fair, State titles are the only form basis to judge the ability of any Aussie. Usually new comers ride again established UK based Aussies so it is easy to se how they could fare in the UK. to call them all wobblers shows your lack of credibility. There are only a small percentage that actually fail in this country, but most are a welcome addition to our leagues.

    Correct, or by the BSPA on behalf of the absent team or promoter.

    You can put your money on it, can't you.

    Well I don't think the budget would stretch to the likes of the Lambert deal. I think both Kennet and Scott have berths in the Premier, but that won't pay them to ride in the PL alone as they don't do Poland, Sweden or Denmark either. They will both need for financial seasons, to have a supplement to their earnings especially on marginally lower money in an easier league like the Championships. If they had signed the other way around, their Championship salaries would have been higher than they can expect now. They won't be cheap, but I would think at least they will be at every meeting unlike one that we know. Funny enough they are both at Rye House alongside Robbo, what's to say Scott's travel could be combined with a hitched ride with Robbo to half his driving. No doubt there will be a plan to get him to Brough every Sunday and Glasgow, Edinburgh, Berwick fixtures will just be combined as two days racing instead of just one home meeting. Let's see what happens in the middle of next week. Never know we might have another couple of riders announced by then.
  5. Certainly will, next Tuesday I Hear. Neither promotion was at the AGM for different reasons, so it can be argued the rest voted for something without realising they were chucking top British talent on the scrap heap and leaving teams understrength with no genuine no 1. U turns are all the rage in politics so why not BSPA.
  6. Trevor could have attended if the will was there, as he would still have been an active promoter.
  7. As workyboy says "Only TWO teams do not have a No 1 . Peterborough and Newcastle." So you reply knowing it was Newcastle. Redcar aren't looking for a No 1 as you already have Barker.

    I knew I had read it.
  9. Newcastle 2018

    Yes, I checked it after I posted and saw he did not fit in now. I can't remember where I read now, but it was only a couple of weeks ago, and I took heart that he was thinking he was fit enough ro ride, and had signed for someone. In anycase, I don't think anybody would sign him until he actually rides and convinces people that he is ft enough to start the season.
  10. Newcastle 2018

    Not sure it he has yet but he has already signed for the NL, I think for Stoke, so he must think he is OK. Probably trying out at Redcar when the track is fit to ride I would imagine.

    Ha ha. Paid Flight.
  12. The difference is you still have the same promoters that were in position last year. No changes. On the other hand, last years promotion has had to be dissolved, and a new company is in the process of still being set up. Until things were certain that we were going to get acceptance and be able to run, we were not really in a position to formally sign anybody in case things didn't work out. But I am sure you knew that anyway. Thanks for your concern.

    Can never understand how simple maths seems to pass over the heads of some fans, things like rider averages, team strengths limits, actual race averages, grades, etc.
  14. Newcastle 2018

    Or is not on contract during the winter period. At the moment the new company is being set up, and sometimes they will be using whatever is still available. Note the Air Fence fund is the cheque to paying for Season tickets for those reasons. Some nitpicking on here just for the sake of it, and not even fans.
  15. Explain how that comment applies to Newcastle. We have not known if we were even running till just before Xmas, therefore not able to even talk to most targets, but some riders pledged their allegiance to us in those circumstances in the hope we ran. Thank you Ash Morris, Stuey Robson and others to be announced. I wonder if it is because it is Newcastle why you made that stupid statement.
