    WOULD personally place Peter Collins ahead of Mark Loram, great though he was, in every respect. Too easy to forget just how supremely talented PC was.

    ARE BV season tickets on sale yet?
  3. Rye House 2018

    THE real issue is not so much when a rider challenges the obvious illegality of the asset and loan system but when a promoter is prepared to break the mould and simply sign a rider who is out of contract regardless of the consequences.
  4. Race Nights

    THE BSPA weren't given the race-nights. They are not in the gift of the FIM. They informed the International Speedway League Bureau, which is affiliated to the FIM, that these were the nights they wanted. Sweden requested Tuesdays, Denmark went for Wednesdays which left Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the Poles which, originally, they were happy with. When the BSPA changed their minds, and substituted Wednesday for Thursday, the Poles moved the goalposts although it didn't actually affect them. It just means that Danish tracks will have priority over riders on Wednesdays. The Polish league authorities continue to play hardball, demanding priority of virtually any day of the week for their play-offs and the FIM are seemingly unable to bring any pressure to bear on what is essentially a domestic situation with the Poles flexing their undoubted muscle.

    NOTHING is definite with the BSPA ... but, yes.
  6. Belle Vue 2018

    JUST about all tracks are making a pig's ear of announcements but then the BSPA are no better
  7. Belle Vue 2018

    COOK later this week
  8. Race Nights

    THE original nights, as the BSPA informed the FIM, were Mondays and Thursdays but that was changed because a number of CL tracks objected.
  9. Race Nights

    HEARING that Premiership tracks will have Good Friday ... CL Easter Monday

    SURELY depends on what his net income is at the end of the day

    DEPENDS on how much money is available to cover production costs I would imagine

    BUT 33% of the usual 48 pages are not devoted to adverts. It is hard enough making SS viable these days without turning away what little advertising is available.

    HAD Lambert signing before it was announced. SS is feature led at this time of the year. What's wrong with ADDING a 24 page travel brochure. Thousands of people use TP to go to SGPs. Am totally bemused by your comments. So, no, I don't have to admit this week's issue is poor. But you are entitled to your opinion.

    STILL BT not SKY ...

    THIS week's Speedway Star is its usual 48 pages plus a 24 page section from Travel Plus. How are you losing out?
