    Kings Lynn 2019

    ”mrss” must be on the management committee of the BSPA Amateur presentation of the sport appears to now be the norm and is now considered acceptable ....... delay after delay ...... they rival our train services for excuses for delaying the entertainment. Nothing has been or is being done to address the issues. Nobody appears to be in charge of the entertainment schedule ......... grader breaks water cart breaks inaudible pit interviews with riders team “managers” fence repairs start gate failures flood light failures bike repairs rest periods for riders track inspections “unsatisfactory” starts people feeling unwell in the stadium.....it just muddles along . 2hours for 15 minutes racing appears the norm, with 2 1/2 or 3 hours not unusual. Kent Kings regularly miss their curfew deadline of 2 hours such is the inability to race 15 heats in a reasonable time. One of the main reasons I took your advice mrss and now keep my money in my pocket. Thanks for your advice. If every fan took your advice the problem would be resolved and we could all go home and watch the SGP s on TV.

    Regular fixtures ?? Meetings completed in UNDEr 2 hours ? Less gardening and faffing around at the starts ? Seems all suporters and the BSPA have short term memory loss and hae conveniently forgotten about the problesm of 2018 ??????

    Gusting, that’s great - you have a few years on me in your speedway supporting , saw my first meeting at plough lane back about 1961 , and visited New Cross in their part season in the provincial league in 1963. I still feel privileged to have seen all the greats of the National league in the early 60s ......

    If what we are being told is true "gustix" then we allegedly have the support of Thurrock Council and the developer who are "sympathetic" to a sporting venue on the Thurrock area. HOWEVER what is clear is that the developer does not support paying for a new sporting venue as part of thier development plans (surprise surprise) I doubt a petition will do any more than show that a few thousand folks are interested in a speedway track in the Thurrock area, and generate som much needed publicity for the cause. For my part I have signed the petition. I also supported Kent Kings planning applications. I have previously posted my opinion on the Lakeside Hammers fans forum that unless a wealthy potential owner can be found to lead this campaign then Hammers RIP. Money talks. PS You are a New Cross Supporter ?

    He would put bums on seats, and probably a few riders bums on the track at Arlington.

    No real surprises other than Kerr. Maybe promoter Cook will rename the side the Eastbourne Hammers to try and lure some of the ex Hammers fans down to support the opposisiton They shoudl be nigh on invincible on their tricky little track at Arlington.

    Speedway Star in the winter

    Always enjoy the winter editions.....especially the historical speedway articles. Much better IMO than the over reported SGP’s in the summer, when we have a series of “what xxx said” articles telling us all about the struggle to get “dialled in” or “set ups” correct , and how wonderful their “team” were. All a bit repetitive. As for the content, the Star can only report the news available. If the promoters want to behave like a secret society , then the Star will have little to report. This weeks edition with info from the AGM and interviews with Jon Cook was much more interesting. Sadly our UK “promoters” seem unable to use the media, whether online or offline, to promote their businesses.
