    It’s gonna be a loooong trip for me to watch a meeting or two ( travel restrictions permitting)
  2. When they were introduced I was riding grasstrack and longtrack throughout Europe ( albeit on a sidecar) but I would mix with riders every weekend throughout the season. I can only go on what they told me.
  3. because a majority of riders found them easier to ride than uprights

    So no Asians go to football matches then ?

    If that’s the case you have to ask what British speedway has done in the last 40+ years to target them as a potential audience ?
  6. Using that argument won’t switching to upright make it more expensive as all the lay down engines / frames will become obsolete as everyone has to buy uprights? also second hand kit will become worthless so anyone starting up would have to shell out a fortune as only new stuff would be available

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Macron’s done a lot of good things. He’s also done a lot of bad things too. If I’m a fan or not doesn’t come into it, Boris has gambled and it appears to have paid off on the vaccine front, it’s a shame he has 120k deaths which he appears to have forgotten about. The “I’d expect better” was about you resorting to pointing out his apparent lack of stature. Then again personal attacks seem the way to go in British journalism

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Well there’s a grown up answer. FFS I’d expected better, but then again maybe not

    European Union - In Or Out?

    I’d take a guess they’re checked before take off ?
  10. I give it till tomorrow before the “ the bikes are too fast nowadays/ there’s no skill involved in riding them (even though most of the critics wouldn’t even know how to start a bike), let’s go back to uprights/ black leathers and bibs/ proper cinders on the tracks/ eeeeeee I saw Tommy ( the mad wellie) Wilkinshaw in 1952 and he used to ride with a rusty Brillo pad on his helmet” brigade come and tell you that’s what’s needed.

    Bearing in mind that laydowns have been used for about 30 years then they should sort the damned tracks out then.

    Customs clearance

    Even if the carnet does last a year it’s still a ball ache, I know riders have ridden abroad before... I was one of them. Every bike frame / engine number had to be on the corner with long waits at the border etc.... I’ve also been the organizer when you get a call on Friday morning saying ‘can you race on Sunday in Germany’ , just organizing ferry’s/ tunnels, time off work, bike prep etc is hard enough with having to add the “fun” of customs to it all. still... blue passports eh?
