  1. Nichols/kennett Rule

    BRITISH Speedway bosses have moved to clarify the decisions over two well documented issues.Firstly, at a meeting of the British Speedway Promoters’ Association General Council, a review took place of the decision to prevent Premiership riders with an average of six or above also riding in the Championship.This rule was introduced for those riders who didn’t double-up last season and was seen as the first step towards reducing doubling-up in the sport.Unfortunately, and regrettably, Scott Nicholls and Edward Kennett – two fine servants of British Speedway – were caught up in this.General Council members have now voted to keep the regulation in place in order to gain more control of the doubling-up situation and begin steps to reduce the prospect of Premiership and Championship clubs looking too similar.
  2. Sheffield 2018

    They actually had Speedway on Eastenders yonks ago. Rickieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee had a bash at Lakeside.
  3. Leicester Lions 2018

    On the face of things it would seem Leicester have put together a decent team. Only Bell Vue and Kings Lynn to name all their 1 to 7. Should be an interesting season . Difficult to predict anything, But I feel a top 4 finish might be on the cards.
  4. Leicester Lions 2018

    I think in this league with the standard of the opposition . He will do very well.
  5. Leicester Lions 2018

    I think that there are many many fans very happy with the move away from Saturday nights. Having fixed nights for this league is one of the best things that has happened.
  6. Leicester Lions 2018

    I didn't say that did I . In fact, I haven't mentioned any rider. Because, like you, I DON'T KNOW.
  7. Leicester Lions 2018

    According to you every rider that has been mentioned won't ride here. How the hell do you know, the fact of the matter is YOU DON'T KNOW. Your just assuming. Unless you know each rider personally and have spoken with them about it. You don't know what deals are on the table or what any rider wants.
  8. Leicester Lions 2018

    You've obviously not been for a while.
  9. I think its perhaps dependent on the severity of the individuals complaint. However, I think one would be ok at most Speedway meetings.
  10. Different strokes for different folks. And an ideal opportunity for sufferers of enochlophobia to get out and watch some speedway . I don't think crowds are a problem at Speedway these days.
  11. People were moaning about last nights (Wednesday) return leg being moved to next Monday. The weather was dreadful, and had been forecast to be so, it was the correct decision. You really cant win with some people.
  12. Thing is, the people who find it difficult to distinguish which is their right foot and which is their left. Come on social media and think they can say the first thought that enters their head. Doesn't matter if it is true/made up or offends other people.
  13. Well Said WE are approaching the end of a hectic season, one which has placed great demand on both the business and private lives of the club management. Every effort has been made to promote both Leicester and Sheffield in a positive, professional manner. It must be pointed out that Leicester were on the brink of closure before we were able to negotiate a satisfactory arrangement with British Speedway Chairman Keith Chapman to take over the club. Similarly at Sheffield four years ago, had we not taken over as part of a consortium at the time the sport would have been lost to the city. We are proud and honoured to have played our part in keeping the sport alive at both clubs. Every hour of every day has been spent channeling our efforts into positive promotion and increasing crowd levels at both clubs despite a torrent of negativity around the sport. This has been at great expense both financially and privately, with valuable family time in our private lives sacrificed for the benefit of Leicester and Sheffield Speedway clubs. However, over the last 24 hours we have had to deal with shocking abuse via email and direct messages on social media and we are not prepared to put up with this. We understand the delicate situation we have been in with the promotion / relegation issue and we have put together both teams in an attempt to provide the best sporting spectacle possible. The foul language, abuse and shocking allegations made against us are not acceptable and we will now take stock of the season in a much different light. We would remind the trolls and keyboard warriors to be extremely careful what you wish for. Without us, two clubs would have been defunct.
