    Somerset 2019

    Racing... Possibly the only better track in the U.K. would be Belle Vue. The O.T.A. is near to Weston Super Mare so plenty of summer tourist, might be best to try looking inland a bit, plenty of historic towns to visit? O.T.A. has its own large car park cost £2? Always best to take a coat, you can easily get caught out when the sun goes down & the sea breeze crepes in!
  2. Rebels lost this because they choose their normal high gearing to start the meeting. With the track much grippier than normal the Lions were out the traps & gone! Rory is a very experienced rider & should have been on the case however Bomber is class in such conditions.
  3. Good to see work has started on the track, my question would be: If a rider had suffered an injury in Mondays meeting, serious or otherwise as a direct result of the very poor track conditions - who would be to blame?
  4. Sunshine forecast from 6 to 9 p.m. with natural watering earlier in the afternoon looks like perfect conditions.

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    Question: Why were Birmingham allowed to sign Adam Ellis when he already had other commitments on Wednesdays, what's worse he's your undisputed number 1.

    Mildenhall 2019

    I thought Wallinger & the team manager came as a double act? Atkins needs the extra rides to be on even keel with other Premier reserves, watch out for the old man Mike - nothing he doesn't know about speedway!
  7. Presentation! yes loads better than the norm......... so why don't the promoters have a seminar were all track announcers / presenters attend & we improve the presentation of meetings @ every track? it will never happen of course tooooo simple a solution & heads buried in the sand ...

    Somerset Vs Scunthorpe 29/5/19

    Taken from the Rebels website: There will be no meeting at the Oaktree on Wednesday June 5th, as originally scheduled but the following week - June 12th - the club will be staging a Somerset Select v Plymouth Gladiators Junior meeting. Admission prices will be just £10 for adults and their will be a couple of riders new to British Speedway in action that night. This will form part of our two-legged fixture with the return date planned for Friday June 28th. Better any speedway than no speedway.......Any 2 well balanced teams will produce good speedway @ the OTA.

    Somerset Vs Scunthorpe 29/5/19

    With 4 riders missing this fixture should have been rearranged anyway, good job the weather gods saw some common sense!

    Somerset Vs Scunthorpe 29/5/19

    Might be best (weather wise) to pull the plug now & use one of the many free Wednesdays?

    Kings Lynn 2019

    The Cookie Monster I would think?
  12. Good work Jason!!! If only J.C. was based in the U.K. nowadays, on top of everything else we could have a decent commentator for the T.V. meetings.........
  13. Who plans the fixtures? we have only had a few meeting so far & yet get Eastbourne for the second time. One thing we can be sure of the Oaktree ALWAYS produces good racing. Crowds are down this year - what are the the reasons?

    Swindon 2019

    James has proved that is is a very talented motorcyclist, what he lacks is a proven "Speedway" mentor to fine tune his riding technique.
