    Says it all about the BSPA when Patchett is allowed to promote in the UK, Pearson is just a leach on Speedway., But with all credibility in the Sport just about gone, these type of people are becoming the norm.

    The future Riders will soon become mercaneries, when they get shafted by Promoters, as they inevitably will.
  3. Hope Busters not in a Dreamlike with the Rolls Royce engines, as they are so bad they have to fly within a certain range of a landing strip, Buster and engines seem to have a bad relationship

    Ahh, I see, pay a large sum up front, sell diddly squat, then loose your up front money, either way they lost a shed load if cash for a donkey

    Sell their stockpile of GTR ENGINES, that might help.

    Not a very smart move, at least you know you will get paid at Somerset, looking at Comets financial situation, the alarm bells should have been ringing, at least there will be some Riders going cheap now, looking for a Team place.

    I thought the coloured insert was the size of the engine, green 500, black 580, red 600+

    Basically British Speedway is up for sale. Might even be able to get a BOGOF deal.

    Panthers up for sale.

    There's been more books cooked in Speedway, than burgers in McD. Running speedway is more about a guys ego, than his financial brain.

    Oh, you mean the Pirates under Mervyn and Pete, what did they do wrong? I understand far more than you know.

    Could well be going to run British Speedway from the Cayman Islands, the well known tax haven, where the vast profits can be enjoyed, while still being able to sit in his office full of plastic trophies. Is it any coincidence that he came into Speedway on a high, and is leaving on an all time low, with the Sport just about finished. Just a very lucky boy that he took over the only solid gold Club in the Country, anywhere else he would have struggled, as all others have done.
  13. The good thing to come out of it, is that he won't be lining up with three other riders for the foreseeable future.
  14. I think we all know who the Ausfie rider was that's night.

    Kent vs Plymouth

    Boxall living up to Bowen's high standards, that's the funniest thing I've heard.

    Birmingham Statement

    Sounds like he's fully qualified for a BSPA position, why would you need him to get a youngster rides at a track, if you think you're good enough to impress a Promoter, go and ask him for a trial.
  17. Must be the same imagination that was working on the Exeter project, BS goes a long way.

    Gerhard Engine

    The sport isn't out of reach financially, if you are good enough, you'll earn money, you get out of it what you are worth.

    Gerhard Engine

    So a standard GTR won a GP, if you believe that then there's no hope. Isn't there a problem with the big end bearings not lasting the distance. Just ask Jonny the Spud for a recommendation, he knows what the score is with the engine.

    Gerhard Engine

    But the engine never did what was promised, anyone can sell something by making false claims.

    Gerhard Engine

    Ok, so now the GTR is all but dead and buried, who were the winners and losers with this folly. Losers were definitely the Riders who got sucked in, and the BSPA. Not sure who the winners were.

    Kim Nilsson owed a few bob

    They do, and the reflection is also wearing a BSPA blazer.

    They've been doing too much BTCC secret squirrel stuff, don't want to risk any secret stuff getting to the opposition lol.

    We had a Leopard once, and he never changed his spots either.

    Problem is there is the Official amount, then there is the personal unofficial contract, the amounts are vastly different, and the BSPA/SCB are only interested in the official contract, which is just basic money, the rest you can go sing for.
