    HIS performance in the 1985 World Team Cup Final at Long Beach (USA) was stunning. TK rates it his best and LB his favourite track. Also very of the very nicest guys you could wish to meet and today doesn't look a day older than he did 24 years ago.

    TV new deal?

    EUROSPORT are now owned by Discovery who are hoovering up major sporting events everywhere and behind one of the bids for the SGP from 2022

    Vojens

    COULD not agree more ...

    THE problem for BSI or whoever will run the series from 2022 is marrying good tracks with places that fans want to go to even if the racing isn't top notch.

    WELL, it doesn't have a roof and about 45,000 less seats for starters

    Vojens

    KNOW what you are getting at but comparing Vojens, a ghost town, with Prague is stretching it...
  9. THAT would be the stadium who handle 'walk up' sales on the day, But, bruno, you are missing a great day and cheap tickets available for months.
  10. MY decade as the Daily Express speedway correspondent included the Spring Classic when John Davis won. The then Sports Editor, Fleet Street legend Ken Lawrence, was there with me on a Thursday night and my report, and a later rewrite, were carried on the back page in every edition. Ken was always prepared to give speedway a good show. Also had the back page when Michael Lee won his WC in Gothenburg. But in their infinite wisdom the BSPA scheduled the following year's SC on Maundy Thursday... the day before Good Friday. At that time national newspapers were not published on Good Friday. Ken and the DE were not amused. And their involvement in what was a star-studded event was doomed from there on in. Why sponsor an event you cannot report on?

    TV new deal?

    YOU would get very long odds on it not being KT and NP. As previously stated, very highly rated within the industry.
  12. At the stadium box office

    TV new deal?

    YOU may be the only one on here, although I doubt it, but Nigel is very highly rated at BT, Sky, BSI, Talksport, etc. Natalie does a good job because she knows her subject. During my time at the SGPs the likes of Charlie Webster and now Kiri didn't have a clue. But why does it have to be a female, and I am certainly not being sexist. Chris Louis and Brando are far better because they can talk the lingo to the riders.
