    Leicester - Swindon 13.06.18

    The track was abysmal tonight. No shale on the racing line for at least a quarter of the track, and spectators covered in dust every time the bikes went past due to lack of/inadequate watering. It has certainly been prepared better for racing before.

    Fine to park on Tesco car park - there's a 4 hour limit.

    I don't know why people feel the need to moan about this. Working as a TM 2 or 3 evenings a week should be something he can cope with.

    Surprised to see James back. I would have thought he needed to establish himself more in the second tier before being ready for the Championship, but if he's riding in the Lions colours, best of luck to him.

    Maybe looking at Joe Jacobs as a potential no. 7?

    We already have a guest pool - it's called the SGB Championship.

    King is on 6.66 - probably around what he would average next season so ok, but not great value. Personally, I'd be happy to stick with Nilsson, Bjerre, Riss, and Bates, and see who fits in the last spot when the assessed average are known. At the lower end, they have to look for riders that will put something on their starting average, and I don't see Jacobs or Auty doing that at Leicester.

    Relegation And Promotion Play Offs

    Could be a rider who has been signed for 2018, new sponsor, track alterations being made, new stand being constructed, a sun block being put up...the possibilities are almost endless.

    Bspa - Want To Borrow My League Structure?

    For now I would go for: * Different race nights for Premiership and Championship, no Premiership fixtures clashing with FIM/SEC events - solves the issue of riders missing due to fixture clashes. * Only allow doubling up and guest rides for riders who make British speedway their priority, whatever nationality they are * Explore opportunities for getting more speedway on TV, e.g. second and third tier meetings on Freesports, and get race videos on social media rather than links to pages with the videos on. Increasing interest in speedway is the key to its survival. * Scrap tactical rides and go back to the old T/S rule. * All guests in Premiership meetings to be drawn from Championship riders without a current Premiership team - with reduced doubling up and no fixture clashes there should be plenty to choose from, or failing that, limit guests from other Premiership clubs to when a no. 1 is missing. Riders riding for one team one week then riding for the opposition the next week makes British speedway look a joke. .

    Since there's no longer a good reason for Przedpelski to not be riding - surely he's got to either be deemed to be withholding his services, or else it's a NL guest for him?

    Woffinden Or Harris

    Neither - if a rider is missing they should use a Championship guest who doesn't ride for a Premiership team.

    Leicester Lions 2017

    I'd go any day if I was to get to see a genuine contest between a full home team and a full away team, something we've rarely (if ever) seen this season.

    Fixed Race Nights For 2018 Season

    2 or even 3 nights for the top league could work, avoiding Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday, and the championship can ride on the other 4 or 5 days. Doesn't seem too difficult, and fans would get to see their own riders (and full visiting teams) most of the time rather than teams full of guests. If there are championship teams that couldn't move race day to suit this, then we just need a rule that premiership clubs get priority on doubling-up riders on premiership race days.

    Leicester Vs Belle Vue 19/08/17

    The latter. Clean Cut Sports presumably keeping the best heats for DVD purchasers.
