  1. When Jack Holder sign for Sheffield for this season, I was a little disappointed as I would have preferred Brady Kurtz. But following and looking at the Aussie Championships he did really well, and too be honest I please that we signed him, and had a feeling that he could have took the number 1 slot off Nicki Pedersen. Something seems to have clicked with him and at present I would put him in the top 2 or 3 Aussie riders. Robert Lambert is an excellent prospect who I think could well take the top GB spot off Tai Woffinden who I think over the last couple of years lost a bit of the edge in his racing. One of the things that gave Robert a big advantage was that he was riding abroad at a very young age, and I think that this had a massive aid to his development as a rider, and I think a young rider wants a blueprint of the best way to develop I would look at the way Robert has done things and try and follow wherever possible. I would put Robert Lambert in front of Jack Holder at the present, but I don't think that Jack is that far behind him.

    Lambert to comeback stronger.?

    Who really knows where or how far our young riders can go. The two stand out riders are Lambert and Bewley. Lambert has some decent experience of riding abroad something that young riders need to experience as much as they can possible get and I can see him getting in or getting close to GP place. Bewley has a riding style that suits the foreign tracks and I can see him kicking on and challenging for a GP place. But a lot will come down to finance, how much the rider really wants it and how dedicated they are, the latter two are only the riders themselves know.

    With Stuart Robson having his farewell meeting could the new Promoter be him.

    On a personal level I would welcome Jason coming back into British speedway, even after a long retirement I think he could do a reasonable job, and even at the age he is I think that he would put bums seats as I think that people would be curious to see what he can and what he cannot do. Realistically I don't think that he would or want to make a comeback to ride in British speedway, I think that he will come over to the UK and his focus will be helping his son onwards with his with his career. Those who believe that they will let Jason if he want to make a comeback on 5 point average a living in cloud cuckoo land, I reckon anything between 7 or 8 points assessed average would be more likely. Its a nice thought that he might be contemplating a racing comeback, but honestly I doubt that it will happen, but as they say never say never.

    Danny Ayres RIP

    Very sad news yesterday to hear of the passing of Danny Ayres. One of the very few Characters and Entertainers in modern day British speedway. He was never going to be a World Champion or a World class rider, but he understood the giving good value to supporters and fans. I wonder if the BSPA would consider re-naming the British Final Trophy the Danny Ayres Memorial Trophy in his honour. Rest in Peace Danny.

    Poole Pirates 2020

    Surprised not to see Todd Kurtz (5.43) getting a mention for the Poole line up a proven middle order rider in the Championship. Mind you would leave you with only around 3.54 for the last rider. Riders left over are on or round that figure Alfie Bowtell Connor Coles Ryan Kingsley Jack Smith Danny Phillips Or if not Kurtz, Lasse Bjerre (5.87) is still without a club.

    I don't think you will find any Championship club charging £14, most are around £16.

    On paper you have to say the the Diamonds are looking like they are in for a hammering this season. But you have to remember they were late with team building and gave every other team a head start in team building. At Sheffield we went through a similar problem with the new promotion and we pieced together a team from what riders were left. Hopefully fans will be understand and stick with the team this year and judge the Promotion on their team building next season where they will start on an even playing field.

    The Nicki P comment made me smile, that was 2011, a lot of water has gone under the bridge since then. For the record Nicki averaged 8.61, in far stronger league than this season. And also for the record last season in weaker league than 2011 only 3 riders averaged more than 8.61. Doyle 8.96 Batchelor 8.82 Fricke 8.81 And Fricke isn't riding in the league next season. I have to say I admire your optimism.

    For me Belle Vue are the title favourites with that team.
