  1. On the plus side, I did see a van with Live Speedway in large letters and a pic of bikes on the side going thro Lynn today. Was going a bit swift to read anything else and quite frankly need a trip thro the car wash but I suppose every little helps
  2. the point g13webb was trying to make was you have to LOOK for any news. You are only going to do that if you are interested. Promoters need to get out there and put speedway in the face of the unconverted if the sport is to survive.
  3. And until more notice is taken of those that no longer attend than the happy clappers,the downward slope will continue.
  4. I'm going to have to disagree with the top paragraph. I cannot for the life of me see how faster racing means better racing. Back in the day, races were slower BUT there were almost no super duper professionally tuned engines so as I recall the races were closer. Sure some bikes were tied together with string but that didn't impact on rider skill. As for the sport being more professional nowadays, sorry it's not. Yes riders spend thousands more than they did in the past but that doesn't make it more professional, just more costly for all concerned. They look the part but the racing is no better than before. Had promoters however put the same amount of effort etc into their part of the sport I might be more in agreement with you.

    One of the problems I have with the long drawn out naming is the effect on potential sponsors and therefore the riders. Now I realise that Riss et al can go to companies and get sponsorship but they would have to say don't tell anyone I'm riding for Lynn until the second week in March. I need some dosh/goods now to get ready for the start of the season but you can't say anything yet. I'm not sure how that benefits the company cos THEY then lose out on some weeks of publicity and media exposure. At least that's how I see it. Maybe if I'm wrong someone connected to a rider/ex-rider could tell me how it works. I appreciate the need to have weekly press releases but anyone with a modicum of intelligence could do that without the ridiculous scenario we have this year.

    I think he's made it worse in some ways. He doesn't seem to have grasped the mindset of speedway fans. His way may be fine for other businesses but speedway is a different world.

    As I cannot see Buster ever providing the entertainment factor that would equal the price. Nor riders providing the racing I like (mainly the fault of modern engines & tuners). You are probably right but if I didn't care I wouldn't bother trying to put forward an alternative view to the one you and others hold. I'd venture to suggest there are far more dissatisfied ex fans than there are happy clappers on the terraces and that ought to tell promoters something, if only they would open their ears.

    Me too. I'm just allergic to rose tinted glasses.

    Quite a few have told Buster and other promoters what they want. Did they listen, did they do anything? The answer is a big fat NO. So it gets to the point when folk say, why bother.

    If you feel that strongly, organise a protest. Get everyone to enter the car park offering a £20 note for the parking fee. I guess the ensuing chaos might be the only think the promotion will take notice of Personally I think it will be chaotic at the first meeting anyway as this has not been well advertised (making no comment ) so many won't have change ready to hand and queues will build.

    do they still print results in newspapers? From memory they only named the top scorers and with all due respect to him, I doubt he will be amongst them
