    The Long Eaton Project

    If I remember right noise tests were done at Nottingham Greyhound Stadium several years ago. I have an idea that Tony Mole and Graham Drury were involved with it. Obviously nothing came of it so maybe there were problems. But with the new silencers.....? There's quite a bit of industry and parkland (and the racecourse) around the stadium but quite a lot of housing within earshot along Colwick Road.

    The Long Eaton Project

    I was there (lucky me!) the night of the walk-out and if I remember right it was against Mildenhall in the days when Dave Jessup rode for them. Can't specifically remember the Ove Fundin night but it's odds-on I would have been at that one too. It was the sort of thing that could happen at Long Eaton!
  3. Yes I remember both stadiums well. Groveway was like Wembley compared to Elfield. Actually had concrete to park on and stand on. I think the last match at Elfield was against Long Eaton but was called off just before start time - another one of my "interesting" visits to Milton Keynes if I remember correctly.
  4. I'm pretty sure it was him and that it was at Groveway. Although the old memory isn't as hot as it used to be so I guess it could have been at Elfield. Maybe another poster will know if he was around in the Groveway days.
  5. No, not Roger Jones. I can picture him but just not think of the name. It'll come back to me....eventually! Edit: It was Terry Cheney.
  6. Only went to Groveway 3 times. The 1st time my car was broken into in the car park, the 2nd time I went without my wallet and had no money (the promoter - shamefully I can't think of his name although I know he always took a lot of stick - kindly let me in and gave me a programme and I sent him the money by post). The 3rd time it was rained off. Happy times!

    Sky Tv

    The easy answer would be just to watch it once a fortnight. I think most of us would prefer as much speedway as possible for our Sky Sports subscriptions.

    What's Your Prefered View Point?

    An ex-Leicester fan who finds it possible to support Coventry suggesting there may be weird people at Monmore? Get a grip, Gem
  9. July 1963 Long Eaton v Middlesbrough. Think the Archers won 41-36 and Charlie Monk became my first speedway superhero.

    Coventry And Peterborough

    The same at Long Eaton. The house builders are prepared to play the long game.

    Once A Jolly Swagman

    Just seen the DVD advertised in Speedway Star for £13.99 (inc postage). I got mine from Amazon for £9.48 (inc postage) and it arrived within 2 days. Nice piece of speedway memorabilia although the acting's the typical wooden stuff of the period. Sid James is about the only one in it who couldn't do with a coat of Ronseal!

    The Bspa Announcment On Monday

    Praise from ImpartialOne doesn't do a lot for my street cred!

    The Bspa Announcment On Monday

    As I'm allegedly the Steve Shovlar of Wolverhampton I think that's unlikely, don't you?

    "celebration Of Speedway 2011"

    Is it true that in an effort to reduce rain-affected meetings the BSPA have banned you from all tracks as everywhere you go a grey cloud follows?
