    THEY didn't have to. Been banging this drum for decades. Assets are illegal. Cook didn't have a valid contract with Edinburgh so could do as he pleased. If BV paid Edinburgh money then more fool them.

    SORRY, but cannot agree with any of that. When was the last time you actual saw an edition? Call Dave on 020-8335113 and he will put this week's in the post for you.

    Swedish league

    DIV 2 always did race on a Thursday and there won't be many Thursdays for Div 1 tracks. Given the paucity of fixtures in the UK should't be difficult to avoid clashes. And, of course, British teams have priority over any riders needed in Sweden.

    WHY should it not work in Britain if administerred properly. Thing of the future rather than the past.

    BSPA Ltd.

    BEHIND the scenes, as it were, moves are afoot to standardise equipment and reduce cost for riders, from the top to the bottom.

    BSPA Ltd.

    WHICH is exactly why riders and promoters need to work together, at least as far as British speedway is concerned, to reduce costs for both parties.

    THINGS were very different then. Lots of riders were part time mechanics, often with their own small businesses servicing cars etc. They barely exist now. And the basic costs for riders is off the scale compared to 40 plus years ago.

    CANNOT agree with that. We now have guys who get on the phone or meet people and produce copy that you won't find anywhere else. Phil Lanning is proving a great addition to the mag, Richard Weston's comments about Brian Burford are premature and as the winter unfolds we will produce a lot of different feature material. Sorry if you see it as a dip in quality. Completely the opposite in my opinion and at a time when we are swimming against the tide in terms of sales recent figures have been encouraging.

    AND what other job outside of speedway would allow them the variable time off required to get to and from tracks let alone actually race? It is hard enough as it is to see why any one would want to be a speedway rider these days without making it even more unviable than it already is. The way to stop doubling up is to ensure that riders can make a living riding from just one team and that will only come about with more and regular meetings for the track they are actually attached to.

    BSPA Ltd.

    LOWERING costs for promoters and riders is a chicken and egg situation. Both should be tackled in harmony.
  21. PHILIPRISING

    BSPA Ltd.

    AMAZING that this wasn't done before. Provides protection (limited liability) for promoters who could otherwise have been in danger of having to contribute financial support to the Association in the case of debts, etc. No doubt the Gerhard fiasco sharpened some minds! Many other potential benefits, too, but ultimately will not bring additional people through the gates.

    WHY pay for a rider you can get for nothing?
  23. DEPENDS what tickets you want

    AGM November 2018

    WHAT won't change is that speedway will be the prime sporting activity in towns across even parts of the country without a professional soccer club and become synonymous with that town or city as it is in Poland and may have been in the UK after the war. That is what I was saying. Or trying to ...

    EVEN if speedway in Norwich was a huge success it would never rival soccer in the shape of Norwich City. Places like Torun, Gorzow, Leszno, and Zielona Gora are towns where speedway is the undisputed number one sport, it is what they are synonymous with, and the fans that attend are doing so in support of not just the club but the town itself. The whole culture is different and is reflected in the media at all levels including TV.
