  1. Polish riders not welcome at Championship tracks, remember.
  2. I guess you read it here, per the club announcement last week: The 2019 Speedway season kicks off in Berwick-upon-Tweed on Saturday, March 30th with the annual Bordernapolis individual event! 16 Riders will battle to be crowned the Champion of the 2019 Bordernapolis under Speedway Grand Prix rules. Favourites include the 7 Berwick Bandits stars, Ty Proctor, Nico Covatti, Matty Wethers and Bandits 2018 hero Theo Pijper. Gates open at 6pm and Heat 1 is scheduled for 7pm! Adults £17 Concessions £13 Kids 1 Season passes are eligible for this event. The full lineup will be announced prior to the event at www.berwickbandits.co ---- and VIP hospitality can be booked via email at hospitality@berwickbandits.co
  3. While I agree the SRBF should concentrate on assisting riders injured while racing in the British leagues, we should not single Tai out for not racing in recent Bonanzas. He did ride in the earlier events while racing in our leagues, and can hold his head up a lot higher than those who haven't -- even if they have requested help from the Fund when sidelined.

    New sponsors announced (and new 'powered by' backers, too) plus a new promoter on the block! Getting interesting now, folks!
  5. I feel that if a rider is involved in British league speedway, he should offer to ride in the Bonanza. If, heaven forbid, he is injured in Britain and he's constantly bodyswerved this meeting, how could he have the nerve to ask for their help? As for riders who have been helped financially in the past, yet pulled out on Sunday, well.....

    Play off contenders

    Yes, but...... Two top scorers have an extra race. Each, if they are No 1 in their team, earns about £100 per point. The riders would expect to be paid for racing for the Helmet. That's an extra £500 to be paid out -- and I can't imagine the prospect of watching that race would bring in the extra thirty adults -- who wouldn't be coming otherwise -- to balance the books. So, although I'd love to see the Silver Helmet coming back, I can't see it as a feasible prospect.

    There's a thread in the "Individuals & Shared Events" section for the Bordernapolis. Although at present, only the expected first seven contestants are known.
  10. So here we go, into the 51st season! Awaiting a full line-up at present, but fairly certain all seven Bandits will be on parade, plus some tasty opposition. Season tickets are valid for this meeting. Onward and upward!

    I'm sure a quick e-mail to club@berwickbandits.co will sort you out, let you know where to collect. A sign of the season fast approaching is that this SUNDAY (10th) there will be the Staff Meeting, open to any potential new crew members who fancy joining the stalwart volunteers who help put on the Saturday show. As well as current staffers, of course. At the Black & Gold, 5pm.

    There might now be a case that, in future, the 1-7 nominated and (presumably) contracted and registered pre-season is required to actually start the season -- with an obvious caveat of MC permission to make a change in the case of an off-season injury, or other unavailability.

    Don't believe that for one minute. Two customers on the same morning?

    Good idea. Hopefully our Webmeister will see this, and make it so.

    If they're good enough, they'll get their chances, yes.....
