  1. Race Nights

    Have said before that if the weather is a bit iffy or the visiting team not too good, some fans will stay at home and watch a meeting, especially if it is one or two of the top teams, so any team riding on a monday, if that is the tv night, might suffer.

    There is another issue when a rider reaches his 18th birthday, who if riding prior to that date had his parents sign any riding contract, who then refuses to sign the contract offered, as the rider has becomes an adult and has to sign any agreements or contracts himself. Any club wanting that rider could ignore any previous signed contract or agreement.
  3. Do you mean when they fail ?
  4. Shovler always hypes up Poole every year so will wait to see what they do in April and May.
  5. Poole 2018

    Only if they are lucky
  6. Poole 2018

    If as it seems only play off clashes then Swindon should be ok and possibly only have to change a few meetings.
  7. Leicester Lions 2018

    Do they also offer specs for some of the refs ?
  8. Poole 2018

    Same here, apart from the occasional wind up.
  9. Swindon 2018

    Should have gone to specsavers first Richard
  10. Belle Vue 2018

    Come on forever that is down to the stupid bspa team limit of one rider above 8, you know the group that continually water down the speedway teams. If it was not for that stupid rule we would have had Nick and Jason in out team.
  11. Belle Vue 2018

    Yes, we signed him, bought him from Wolves and are including him in the 2018 line up
  12. Belle Vue 2018

    Agreed and I am sure that some fans and local sponsors have given up because of the chopping and changing of riders each season. Years ago many youngsters used to wear race jackets with their favorite riders name on, but you hardly ever see it now as a favourite rider this year is riding for a different team next. The same happens with riders caps and shirts, because of the changing you see less.
  13. Race Nights

    No doubt some will pick one night only and others will pick both nights for home meetings. I am waiting with interest for the fixtures lists to be published.
  14. OAP concessions, why?

    At kings Lynn fans can work out the next race ins and outs etc and read a book between each race while the tractor is going round and round.
  15. OAP concessions, why?

    She can read a chapter between each race
  16. Race Nights

    I just hope that they manage to schedule the meetings with less gaps than last year, and that clubs are forced to run cancelled meetings or comps like the KOC by certain dates so that there is not the usual last min panic in September with multiple meetings in one week.

    But because we are leaving the eu the price of bread went up 60p in that week so you lost money as well as having no bread for a week
  18. Race Nights

    Since the bspa have authorised Swindon to ride on a thurs, following what appears to have been the usual screw up in originally agreeing Mon and Thurs as the Premier race nights and then changing to Mon and Wed, who knows what priorities there now are for thursday nights. I agree it should not be too difficult to arrange the fixtures so that they do not clash with riders championship meetings, but as like 2017 if the bspa schedule has gaps of two or three weeks of no meetings, then we have some rain offs in the first part of the season there may be clashes in the later part of the season.
  19. Aussie U-21 Championships

    Speedway updates will be covering the final, not sure about the qualifier.
  20. Poole 2018

    And with Middlo playing the spoons, quality entertainment .
  21. Race Nights

    You can add to that, that the opposition teams riding against those championship teams on the thurs so it could be more than six. Each time Lakeside race against one of the above championship teams they could be three riders down if the premier has priority.
  22. Poole 2018

    No way, it is tripe they eat
  23. Poole 2018

    But that is flawed as the years when Brady was riding were against lower riders, most of the top riders had left the UK for the continent. Next .
  24. Race Nights

    That would be ideal providing the teams are equally split between mon and wed, but if 6 teams ride on the same day then there probably is not enough weeks in the season for them all to ride on the designated night. As well as this if we have another bad year of scheduling and lots of rain offs then the alternatives will need to be used. It will be a bit difficult for some fans to chop and change home race nights.
  25. Race Nights

    Have not yet seen anywhere how the priority works in this case.
