    Rosco steps down as GB boss

    Scarily a few also suggested Gary Havelock. As ever nothing good comes of running things by referendums.

    Rosco steps down as GB boss

    International 'Team' Speedway had been reduced to a 'three man pair'. Nothing more. And the reliance on Tai is just overwhelming. In most races it will be him partnered by another. So ... whatever Tai wants or feels will work best will probably BE the best. No matter what us outsiders think.

    But never a recipe.

    Now that there is this entire 'GB Speedway Team' set up ... I wonder what is the actual role of the 'Manager' within that set up anyway. In other sports the Manager would be the guy that headed that entire team of backroom staff every bit as much as the sportsmen on the track. But Rob Painter is that true Manager already . Not for first time British Speedway has done it arse-about. Surely they are looking for just a 'rider liaison facilitator' or a 'Programme filler in'. Aren't they ? Leaving Tai free to tell Rob what needs to be actually done.

    Monkey Masks

    Looking back through a load of Stars from late 1971 it is obvious that there were just a few riders using Classic Monkey Masks that season. The majority were using a variety of chin/nose masks, possibly a lot homemade, along with the old fashioned 'gas goggles'. Going forward It is clear that the use of Monkey Masks increased exponentially through the early 1972 season. By August 1972 the great majority of action photos shows the guys using them. That was the turning point. Interestingly in early 72 there is a half page advert in some editions for Lewis Leathers that shows, alongside their traditional suits, a Monkey mask available for £2.99, although it is not called that by name, the photo is clear. I don't think they produced them but were stockists so I assume others started selling them at that time as well - and in big numbers it would seem.
  8. Let's hope racing is top notch. It's going to be a hard slog with the rest ... Thicko bimbo babbling trackside and Thicko Roscoe babbling in the studio. Why ?
  9. Last year the inside gates, particularly red, had an advantage across the whole night. BUT the first four races were won off yellow AND so was the Final. it's not all about the red gate every time.

  11. Where's that flag Marshall from Eastbourne when we need him. Tai went almost an entire lap at top speed with red lights on and red flags out. Is there a Dugard in the house ?

    Eastbourne v Glasgow Semi Final

    A statement that should have stopped after two paragraphs.

    I got a massive boost from Kolodziej ... He just seemed so cheap at 4-6 when I was watching practice .. Being put down as the absolute joint worst in the meeting just didn't seem right ... But never expected +10 though ... Amazing !
