  1. THE BSPA General Council met on Tuesday at a time when speedway in the UK is in crisis. But, as usual, no word from the inner chambers of ACU House in Rugby. We are not allowed to know what they discussed, what plans they have afoot or any decisions made. They have become the ultimate secret society. And yet they wonder (maybe they don't) why the paying public, on whom they depend, despair and are deserting the sport in their droves. Are they interested in what British fans, those that are left, are prepared to pay to watch?
  2. THAT'S more like it ... a proper dream

    WHISPER it ... there was a BSPA meeting last Tuesday. Don't think they want anyone to know
  4. PROBABLY the chain guard and chain that David Rowe thought had fallen off Sayfutdinov's bike

    Bob Dugard RIP

    NICE tribute from Russell Lanning, whose dad Dave had a long and successful association with Eastbourne, for Bob at his funeral yesterday.

    Ronnie Moore

    UNQUESTIONABLY ...

    OF course there are still promoters, one on your doorstep, who would like British speedway on TV scrapped.

    The continuing decline of Speedway

    ONE notable comparison ... top performers in both sports ply their trade around the world, representing a variety of different teams.

    BT have a two-year contract... are getting good viewing figures and coupled with the SGP/SON see speedway as an asset

    WHICH is exactly how this particular topic started. There is word in the air that one league has been dropped, that some CL tracks will move into the PL and NL ones into the CL.

    ECHO that ... alcohol has little to do with it.

    Somerset vs Belle Vue Premiership 15/08/18

    YOU might want to edit that
  13. ALREADY signed a new contract ...
  14. ZAGAR maybe, Vaculik probably not. Whether we like it not, nationality will always play a part. If Greg doesn't qualify I doubt personally that he would expect or want a wild card. Lambert will be in the frame. If NP remains as competitive as he was on Saturday but doesn't manage the top eight will he get one? The series needs new blood but also requires Danes and Swedes.
  15. FRICKE for Holder must be on the cards

    King's Lynn v Belle Vue 08-08-2018

    HE has far less trouble on a big, wide track than say a small one where the tight turns can cause some discomfort. He probably should have had the operation sooner but it is a process and one which hopefully will see him back to full fitness sooner rather than later.

    King's Lynn v Belle Vue 08-08-2018

    HE is far from 100 per cent...

    Bob Dugard RIP

    LIKED and admired him. Could have a blazing row and the next minute sit down for a cup of tea with Bob and his wife Margaret. Speedway owes the Dugard family a massive debt, not least because of Bob.

    Torun 2018

    GOOD line-up for the Gollob meeting at Bydgoszcz on the Sunday after Torun...
  20. WON'T be both that's for sure. Togliatti seriously under consideration for SON with Russia defending their title.

    Belle Vue v King's Lynn 06/08/18

    I AM not holding a candle for anyone here, and have been critical of the Poole track, but many (not associated with Poole) have commented that the track was good.

    Poole v Kings Lynn. Prem B. 1st August 2018

    WHEN did he do it? During or after the meeting?

    PROBABLY don't want to pay royalties ...
