    Rob Godfrey interview in Speedway Star

    He may well only own 2 through 2019 and be back to only 1 for 2020

    Ricky Ashworth on BBC breakfast this morning.

    Thanks for posting that Steve - Id left for work and missed it Brought a tear to the eyes and a lump to the throat What a fantastic effort from Ricky and his family. Great to see the huge improvements being made and no one can doubt that there will be more successful progress given the attitude of determination
  3. Not if the clock doesnt start until the ponder crosses the line - as Gambo points out a rider could sit for a few seconds finish many yards behind yet post the fatest time from the ponder result

    Negative 'fake news' from Mr Webb then.... At least he is consistent
  6. Time will all start at same point when tapes rise Clock will stop when cross the line so will be a significant difference from front to back of bike

    2019 SoN Draw

    Where is the common sense in a pairs/team event being decided by an individual run off?
  8. If you are using the transponders to decide close finishes it has to be
  9. I would like this to be possible My only doubt is that with the amount of power and tension at full revs no movement must be almost impossible

    The Name's NOT the Same...

    How about Louis Carr/Lewis Kerr
  11. Agree thats seems the logical position. Need to be identically placed independantly and the riders not allowed to meddle That should cover almost all eventualities
  12. That would be a fundamental change to who wins a race though At the moment its any part of the bike cutting the plane of the finishing line (usually the front wheel) but would now be the transponder

    Visa criteria

    Saw a tweet from Josh MacDonald quoted on the BSPA site that he intends to still travel to Britain , pick up his visa and look for opportunities through the summer Is this actually possible?? Given his sponsoring employer is not trading I assumed his visa would be invalid If it is still valid and issued then I understood the sponsor had to provide accomodation and a regular income (something like a min £150 per week) I cant imagine this would be the case in the circumstances Anyone able to clarity the realities of the situation
  14. Good point Also what happens when one rider reaches the line on the back wheel with the bars slightly crossed against a rider pointly dead straight The straight wheel could reach the line first but the transponder be behind the rider with the crossed bars.....

    Yes because speedway press releases are a known paragon of truth and virtue Lets see how it pans out

    Kings Lynn 2019

    The finances I think was an early smokescreen to the discussion that has been found to be a red herring.....

    Just need confirmation of who the owner is now......

    No he will not - 100% guaranteed

    Ipswich 2019

    I would expect there will be at least an initial upturn Very few of those that could be tempted back will read the mixed verdicts on here - they will get the mainstream news - and I think the top flight return will be viewed positively A good start at home and some entertaining meetings will be needed to capitalise and maintain that advantage Fingers crossed

    The calculation will be taken to further decimal places for team position if required Not sure that the reduction counts for team position anyway but perhaps only for team building

    Kings Lynn 2019

    You can still have 7 separate press pieces by having follow up stories about each rider That could help build a team identity and promote a growing sense of club identity
