    Somerset 2020

    West Country speedway fans 2021 season: With no Speedway @ Somerset or Swindon & yet to see any sign of an agreement with the landlords for Poole to run. Could be a lot of traveling or no speedway for many of us in 2021. If the GP does fun @ Cardiff in 2021 will the BSPL run a meeting @ the Oak Tree on the Friday night?

    Wolverhampton 2020

    I would like to see Anders Rowe as the young brit for wolves, he has riding skills that would suit the tricky wolves track = good for the team & good for Anders development.

    Ipswich 2020

    Crump will be @ Ipswich 100% as stated he will put bums on seats & has joint sponsors with the team in addition his return is such a boost to British speedway the BSP will help make it happen.

    BSPL AGM

    Agree with you again Najjer, do you remember "Keep it simple" already long forgotten... What is needed these young guns need to have races v their apposite numbers, have a minimum of rides per meeting & a minimum £ guarantee per meeting. Now (2021) would be a great time to reintroduce second half's - not like the old style riders taking or leaving it BUT an exciting & meaningful addition to the main event, what would be the cost? riders, bikes & everything else already in place & a sponsor to finance the final.

    Lewis Bridger Returns

    I think we can all agree Lewis Bridger was a fantastic talent on a speedway bike, with few better. If he still has the riding ability he's 20% of the way there, however it will be the other 80% that's required that will determine whether the proposed comeback will be a success or not! A Lewis Bridger (when on the gas) is the type rider needed in every team that would be great for UK Speedway.

    BSPL AGM

    Well said James, exactly what many supporters have been saying for years. FACT IS there has never been a better time for major changes to be implemented but will they happen? My guess is we will be presented with minor adjustments to an already not fit for purpose GB league set up, things like 6 man teams to save money, it's been tried & was hated so why would you try again. A TOTAL TRANSFORMATION IS REQUIRED OR WE ARE DOOMED.

    That forward thinking rider was none other than current Plymouth promoter Mark (the Undertaker) Phillips.

    1970's Colin Barber or via Colin Barber. Later 70's Gerald Smitherman GTS. Cathy Pope was around this time also.

    There is a problem that in any race riders turn a full 360 4 times, so does that not make the sun issue unavoidable?

    BSPL AGM

    AGM. Putting covid-19 aside, the fact is Speedway in the U.K. is in need of a major overall. Tweeking what we already have (as per the norm) will achieve nothing or at most very little. Standard/formula engines & equipment are a must for the sports survival but will it ever happen? "Promoters" must look outside the box. The once regular weekly home meeting is the one vital ingredient to keep your paying public's interest.

    He had his knockers but this is one of the many things Tim Stone (RIP) had right @ Queensway Meadows Newport!
  14. No doubt in my mind if Jason Crump wanted to win this meeting then he could. However I think he will use it to feel his way back in calm & cullulated.

    Corona virus

    IF! we are going to have any meaningful form of league Speedway (U.K. Poland & Sweden) in 2020 it can only happen if there is no SON, G.Ps or most other F.I.M. events. The only event needed other than the domestic league meetings would be a one day world final preferably staged @ an indoor/roofed arena. Truth is none of us knows what's going to happen - but for 2020 U.K. league speedway to be any sort of a success it can only happen without the numerous interruption of F.I.M. events. Does anyone else agree with me or do I have just got to much time on my hands?

    Ipswich 2020

    You are well informed! If we do have any racing Jason could ride in the British Final & then if he won it!!!!!! Reality is: we will be "VERY LUCKY" to see any U.K. speedway in 2020, if we do then the BSPA will need to employ someone to make meaningful fixtures of whatever is left of the season.
  17. A good source of information with regards Jack would be Tim Nunan, last time I heard he was a club official of Mildura speedway. They use to travel together when both rode for Stoke a tale or two to be told if Tim is willing!!!!!
  18. My guess is the BSPA are waiting for the government to say you can't run - because of legal/financial reasons?

    Corona virus

    Just had a marathon cancelled on me & heard of another cancelled on the radio. The way I see it the less "crowd" scenarios anywhere the better, speedways biggest problem would be if & when accidents happen hospitals A&Es unable to cope . U.K. speedway has to be postponed with immediate effect!!!!!

    Somerset 2020

    What average would Dan Bewley come in on?

    Jason Crump

    Agree 100%............. The fact that Jason Crump is riding premier league Speedway 2020 for Ipswich is due to a unique combination of circumstances! To compare this with any other situation is not a true comparison. Jason's tallent/record puts him in speedways all time top ten. Rejoyce all U.K. speedway fans Jason & Niki will be putting "bums on seats".

    Somerset 2020

    Does B-arnie Pedersen fit average wise? good mate of Gazza!

    Somerset 2020

    Question to all you number cruncher's on here: who are the riders available who fit average wise?  Edited February 21 by CountyGround Don't think there were any names suggested? what about Pedersen with a B?

    Ipswich 2020

    I can't believe there are negative people on here, This along with Niki P is a massive POSITIVE for the whole of british speedway.........I would like the G.P. TV guys to get Jason on board when & were possible as he is the BEST commentator currently available.
