  1. post on the local facebook group - someone living near 4 lane ends who doesn't normally hear the speedway posted that there sounds like a chav scooter rally going on somewhere asking if anyone knew what it was!
  2. Fixed night farce-how much longer

    1 or 2 NL riders in each team - maybe more, maybe 6 man teams. There wasn't going to be enough riders for BL2 back in the day - within 3 years they were breeding world class talent
  3. Fixed night farce-how much longer

    i remember when Poole went ** up - i was sorry to lose a track i didn't take the piss out of fans who had lost their track and team to support. They were a cinderella club for years, along with Cradley. People should have more respect for smaller clubs.

    you really are full of sh8t -it gets right on my wick. Great - Poole are rich and well supported. Play yourselves every week. You need a league - an affordable one for Redcar and others otherwise you'll have a four team Div 1.
  5. couldn't agree more - start from scratch is the only way. NL seems to be doing ok - finding talent and running some big clubs. Lose anyone who can't commit to British meetings whenever they take place. People like you must know how to make bikes cheaper. I for one lose complete interest in a meeting where guests appear. Its a bloody plague these days.
  6. Redcar 2018

    tbh i don't know why, according to Charles. Wright, we threw all the money at BB; why didn't we throw it at Wright - more reliable and infinitely better character by the sound of it. I wouldn't be wanting him back next year
  7. Characters of the sixties

    and yet some say we need the stellar names - we don't, we need riders who the crowd identify with and grow to love.
  8. Newcastle 2018

    Christ how old is he - 11?
  9. Redcar 2018

    couldn't understand why he didn't get a start tbh - as you say, club asset
  10. Eating Dust

    we should have a hall of shame for all the fantasists we've had - this, the marketing guy, kks, etc etc
  11. Redcar 2018

    i trust this management - they will do whats necessary as long as its possible. Our assets need to stay and develop.
  12. Redcar 2018

    awful comment - we have decent managers and promoters, especially compared to what we had. They'll give people a chance to pull up their socks but they will change if necessary. Knee jerk reactions solve nothing
  13. League Sponsorship - How Much?

    the bloke was a fantasist.
