  1. What will 2020 have install for the Rebels fans? what league? "May"-be the return of some of the riders the fans want to see i.e. Allen, Wright, BWD & Holder.

    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.
  4. 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!!!!!
  5. 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!!!!!

    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

    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.

    Ipswich 2020

    All the keyboard warriors on here comparing JC with other riders forget Jason was in a different class, 3 times world champion & a 10 year stint never outside the top 3 in the world. As you say Arch Stanton Jason is a proud man but also level headed & intelligent. Jason's retirement was down to an arm injury, that now has had time to heal, if he can come back to 80-90% of the former rider then everyone will be happy. If things aren't working out Jason will no doubt pull the plug. Good on "Young Tiger" for pulling this off, can only be good for U.K. speedway.

    MSDL Destroyed by BSPA?

    It's not a rumour, teams were told @ the start of 2019 that "nomad" teams would not be allowed to operate in 2020. A good or bad decision? I don't know!

    Britain's Greatest Motorcyclist?

    You have missed Grasstrack. Next to AKB would be Jersey's very own Marcus Bisson & as well as his motorcycling exploits you can add Karting & Rallying!

    Poole Pirates 2020

    Craig Boyce was first spotted in Australia by Bob Sharpe, who then contacted Neil Street & insisted that Neil took him under his wing & that's why he was @ Poole because Neil was the team manager & Coach.

    Belle Vue Colts 2020

    Spot on, with positive encouragement & good luck who knows what they might achieve. Only a short time ago the Aussies had 3 excellent talents & all 3 sons of good riders: Alex Davies, Taylor Poole & Dakota North. Great talent alone is no guarantee of future success a lot of other factors come into it.

    Rye House 2020

    Maybe we need to know all the facts before making our own judgements! Who owns (or has control of) what. Most of us are aware that BMR paid some rather silly guarantees, the sport could do with some wage controls like the Rugby Union. On the face of it to have Rye House up & running ASAP should only be a positive for our sport.

    bandits 2020

    "IF"Jason decides to puts his racing head on then the only rider likely to beat him will be Tai, I would suggest the reason Jason is riding is a favour to his W.A. Rock Oil distributor.

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    I would suggest the team Wolves are starting the 2020 season is not the one originally planned simples.........

    Poole Pirates 2020

    That was 91 tho wasn't it ? , so top league by then.. i remember seeing him as a wobbler in the second half against Cradley that year or even possibly 92 - na 91 i reckon. The common link with most of the riders named is Neil Street. It wasn't just the Aussies he advised/coached/nurtured a few others that spring to mind include: Simon Wigg, Simon Cross, Steve Schofield, Scott Nicholls, N.K.I. Neil was much more than a team manager, sadly he was never accredited or rewarded for his dedication to the sport in the U.K. unlike he was in Australia. This didn't bother him as he did for the love of the sport.
  22. Biggest problem Somerset has are restrictions within their planning consent. Otherwise there would/could be a lot more going on @ the Oaktree. P.S. I think the visit of Borris to the OTA was a feather in the cap to all concerned. Thank God it wasn't Corbyn & Abbott with her 2 left shoes!

    Poole Pirates 2020

    With the Poole coffers not what they once were, why would you give up possibly your biggest pay-day of the season for a testimonial? With Middlo's renowned rider connections a barren date would be far better date for the man himself. A top quality line-up (with some riders not U.K. based) would be reflected by a huge crowd.

    Toilets....... Judged by some other tracks Somersets toilets are brilliant, you single out the pairs (a BSPA shared event) this is a once a year event a bit like Glastonbury! with the later staging in 2019 I think the size of crowd was underestimated. Not a great subject but toilets have very low priority within speedway, could be why it's mainly males that go, if you have ever taken your wife, girlfriend or daughter one visit to the looes & its an instance fear of ever returning.
