  1. No, it wouldn't and it would have been completed had this been on Monday with BT there. It drizzled for a few minutes, rained fairly gently for five minutes then petered out. The tractor came out, went around bend three/four and hey presto, the water was gone. Unfortunately half way through that two minute job, it was announced that the meeting was abandoned. Nobody went to look at the track. Everyone around me was surprised and pretty grumpy at such a poor decision. The track was far wetter before the meeting and also why bother with the interval when all in the grandstand could see the shower coming? I don't know who drove the decision, although handy financially that it came after the cut off, but with four heats remaining.
  2. Yeah, absolutely. Kurtz possibly had mechanical issues though, as he went through the tapes, didn’t he? Sundstrom’s let himself down a bit though, he’s been here for eight meetings, so to make such a rookie mistake is silly.

    So you did, although he certainly didn’t hang around long. I thought his brother showed more promise here, but I suspect both are about 5 point riders in this country.

    He is a completely different rider. Literally. Michał Szczepaniak was at Coventry, his brother Mateusz was at Poole and Kings Lynn and is now back at Poole.
  5. You’ve got the wrong end of the stick; DC2 is a Swindon fan. He’s trying to have a dig at Poole (again, yawn), but in doing so has given Somerset one too.

    Not really a sensible comparison though as Zmarzlik only had an assessed average, whereas Woryna has an established one. Its entirely correct to reassess a rider who hasnt got an established average, for example Piotr Pawlicki when he went to Wolves. Don't the (last years) rules only allow a reassessment if a rider is out injured for a year, or missing from Britain for three years?

    Kurtz was signed as a third heat leader though and, despite spending the majority of the season riding at number one, still managed to increase his average. I'd say he was a spectacular success, let down largely by Kasprzak's lack of effort.
  9. Good grief, how often do you need this explaining

    Speak for yourself SB, personally I'm quite fond of flange.

    You've claimed this a few times Sidney, but it's just not true. Holder had some horrible blips away from home last year, hence why: Kasprzak 2016 away average -7.71 Holder 2016 away average -7.54 Still, a great signing for KL and a very decent side. Excluding the play offs at Monmore, Holder was outstanding for the last few months of the season.

    Which of course has no impact at all on Kurtz, as he holds a dual nationality passport and so doesn't need a visa. Just because Swindon stuffed up, doesn't mean anyone else has.

    It's always been a seven, as we are working with last year's Premier League averages. He has a Danish average of below six from last year so, according to the rules, is a category 2 rider, and therefore 7. It's 18.6.1/2 of last year's rulebook.
