  1. 2018 Regulations

    They are allowed to leave the track if there has been a crash to fix anything on the bike or get second one, and the race has been stopped, but not for a tape infringment and restart. It might be ok on a warm summer evening at the weekend or when people are not cold or wanting to get home, but with interval, grading every four races a meeting should take about 90 mins.
  2. 2018 Regulations

    The opening of the pit gate and allowing the mechanics to come out to the bikes is one of the annoying wastes of time, this should have been stopped or the restart time should have been 1 min, put on as soon as the race is stopped.
  3. Fixture Change

    If they have signed a contract to ride for the British team and they ride elsewhere without permission then the promotor can sue them for breach of contract.

    Could well be more stalling tactics.

    But Stadia UK have screwed up by moving the position of the "new" stadium to the position of the existing one which is nearer new houses they have already built rather than having it next to the road which was away from them. I would rather keep the present site but this may open up a can of worms and give Stadia UK more continual excuses to not proceed with the stadium development.
  6. No TV deal?

    I seem to recall that in one meeting out of 15 races we had about 7 to 9 restarts, absolutely rediculous, and it was cold as well.
  7. No TV deal?

    That will help a little bit, but one of the biggest time wasters is allowing the pit gate to be opened after a restart and mechanics coming out to the bikes. If it was stopped the restart could get away before the two mins was up. The ref should have the power to turn off the clock when all riders are at the gate.
  8. No TV deal?

    The meeting finishing at 9 - 9.15 is fine especially when the weather is like it is now, but some meetings go on and on due to pointless time wasting which is what is putting more fans off from continuing to attend. Last season we had so many call backs to the start it became rediculous and must have looked awful on tv, especially when the ref did not put the 2 min on as soon as the recall was signalled. Most watching on tv would have been put off going, and many recorded it and ff through all the delays.

    Was it high tide
  10. No TV deal?

    That will not make much difference to all the time wasting.
  11. No TV deal?

    Having just read the published 2018 rules I see that there seems to be no effort to stop time wasting on a tape infringement and restart. There is no rule stopping the pit gates being opened and mechanics adjusting the bike or topping up the fuel rather than getting the riders straight back to the start for the rerun. This lack of speeding up the meeting will turn more fans away from speedway and not give a good impression on tv to any new possible fan.
  12. For or against team suits

    But that becomes irrelevant when there are three guests in the team with just a similar bib but different outfits.
  13. Bt Sport Coverage

    Then one day they will all be surprised when no tv company wants to pay the clubs to show it.

    Lots of talking, shame about the racing

    It is what Freeview call their HD system but I am also sure that ch 95 is not HD.
