    Sheffield 2019

    From the Sheffield Star:- Sheffield Tigers’ bosses say they will enjoy the best venue in the country when work on the first bend at Owlerton is complete.The old concrete terracing under cover has gone to make way for a massive investment in a 500-capacity conference and banqueting suite.It means viewing for fans will be on the home straight and third and fourth turns next season. And it’s been confirmed the mesh barrier on the bends, which is up for Stock Car racing, will be taken down for speedway events to benefit fans with a much improved view of the action.Sheffield co-promoter Damien Bates said: “We already have impressive facilities, but this is going to take the stadium to a new level. When you look at the plans and the investment our landlords are making you have to be impressed, it’s going to superb. I accept a lot of people loved standing on the first turn but we are moving with the times and the third and fourth bend area will have a clear view of the track and it can accommodate a lot of people. It’s going to be the best speedway stadium in the country when the new building is complete. We are very fortunate to be racing at a venue like Owlerton.” Bates has also been encouraged by the amount of positive feedback regarding the switch to Sunday afternoon racing rather than the traditional Thursday night. “Of course it doesn’t suit everyone but we’ve had lots of comment from people who are saying they will be able to come along on a Sunday. With a 4pm start they can even bring the kids along and hopefully we will see a new generation of supporters. There’s so much to look forward to next season, the team is highly rated by many people I’ve spoken to and the lads are buzzing".

    As long as Timo Lahti isn’t around, the pit walls should be safe.

    I can't see Todd giving up a season in the CL for the possibility of getting a meeting or two in Poland.

    Well done Sheffield for signing Drew Kemp. I would like to see Ty Proctor return. Looks like the first meeting next year will be the 90th Anniversary Meeting; no date/time confirmed.

    Well done Comets. Shame about the abysmal fixture list.
  12. The services of a track electrian should be included in the rent, but I can't find any mention of an electrician in the rule book. This is the only related comment that I can find:- HEALTH and SAFETY 5.4.1 All meetings and training sessions are subject to the Health & Safety at Work Act: Promotions, Clubs or Associate Members must carry out risk assessments on a regular basis and when requested, copies must be forwarded to the SCB, BSPA or Insurance Companies. 5.4.2 Risk Assessments must be made for all aspects of a meeting, and specifically include: a) Entrances/exits to the stadium, including the car park, lighting, signage etc. b) Movement of people and machinery in the Pits Area, and onto the Track, including plant equipment, riders, Officials, spectators and visitors) who may be on the Infield or Track and also in the event of a track racing accident. c) The safety of spectators in the public areas. If Risk Assessments are incomplete, please be aware that insurance cover may become null and void.

    Good to see Jim getting involved again. One of the best referees of recent times. I hope he makes a difference.
