  1. its about 3 metres from Middlesbrough! Had to call it Redcar tho. Sorry i find the idea of the pairs gimmicky Gimmicks are one of the things that have dragged us down. Its a sport, a team sport, and i would prefer that to be the focus.

    The Aussies At Glasgow

    you would think so but there is much antipathy towards immigration in the country from wherever and work permits are tight at the moment. This of course applies to doctors, gas engineers, etc etc as well as speedway riders.

    Ipswich v Redcar 19/7/18

    well we have the team we can afford so if you want more competition go 1st division where you belong.

    The Aussies At Glasgow

    they most certainly are not. However, in the event of an amalgamation of the 2 divisions maybe there should be negotiations re work permits for non EU riders, if only for a year or 2 to make up for a perceived shortfall of riders. Another half dozen young Aussies wouldn't go amiss in such an event

    NO WORD FROM THE BSPA

    it would but if you remember those ads at the cinema for local companies where 'off the shelf' footage was used with the local info at the end. If clubs paid for a clip for all to use with details of the nearest track at the end In the Tyne Tees area for example they would mention Newcastle, Redcar, Berwick and Workington. Its difficult to guage what effect it would have but it would certainly reach people the age old point remains though - if and when they do turn up it has to be to see a well run and entertaining show. It has to compete with the place they saw the ad - cinema or in front of the telly and has to be reasonable value. At present it would be around double the cost of a cinema visit and far less comfortable

    besides at some of the bigger tracks the racing is quite boring at times and some at the smaller is very good

    well one of those is fixable for sure and small tracks are fine if they're wide enough.

    i really don't think he's saying that to be fair

    Yes but in this case the customers will probably ask for something which cannot be supplied because it can not be afforded. dear M&S I would like a wool suit, silk shirt and tie but i want to pay £18 max. Do you mind awfully making a huge loss so i can have what i want?

    well that would be a good place to hand out half price entry vouchers at their nearest track

    i'm afraid a response from me would read as a rather pathetic reach for the past. I want silver 2 valve bikes back with big handlebars!

    i agree with what you say but listen to what? we have several paths which people on here advocate: pare it back to amateur/semi pro, push the boat out for the stars and hope for the best, amalgamate the leagues, etc , etc so which group do they listen to? and whichever path they choose people will kick off and feel alienated personally i want one league at just below current Div 2 level racing on their choice of night and an amateur NL and i can hear people scoffing from here so you can't win. I also want NIL guests while you're at it- I'd rather see teams get slaughtered than guests

    Jonathan Chapman - It's Your Time

    well that in itself is not conducive to independence
  15. as usual - nail on the head - 90 pc of fans don't know or care about the engines. Probably uniquely in motorsport
