    Presumably that applies to Swindon Speedway, as well as myself.

    Yes but apart from the wording I wasn't wrong, it does say that "fans can now ensure they will be part of it."

    Well ok the wording was slightly different but the meaning was the same..... British Speedway : Elite League Last Updated: Nov 18th, 2015 - 10:41:14 Swindon Speedway: 2016 season tickets on sale, By Admin Nov 18, 2015, 10:42 Email this article Printer friendly page Swindon have unveiled their season ticket details ahead of the 2016 season.

    Several years ago they were advertising season tickets with "you'll be able to watch the second half of the season from the new stand."

    Your maths isn't the only problem.

    Just One Race (or maybe two!)

    Riders were open to bribery, someone would approach a riders and say 'so and so' wants to win the meeting and there's (whatever the inducement was) for you if you let him win the next race and maybe get under everyone else's feet as well. Some were openly bragging about it, some made it obvious when they suddenly slowed to let someone through and this was happening at all levels. It was eventually highlighted in a Sunday newspaper, complete with famous riders openly admitting it and seemingly seeing nothing wrong with it. I can't give figures but it seemed that a significant number of people stopped supporting and It never recovered, I knew a fair number who never went back and now consider the sport a joke. These days I'm sure there's much less of it but riders are still leading the sport's eventual demise by taking more out of it than is going in.

    A lot of people DID take notice of it, especially when the named riders admitted it, I had quite a large group of friends who travelled to big meetings all over the country and weekly at our local track, they all quit going soon after that.

    Yes and they explained why.

    There is an explanation on the Glasgow thread.

    I hope it will too but that doesn't exactly make it a great line-up.

    That's fair enough, I was a little disappointed when I saw it, I know some of Ben's close friends among riders but they don't seem to be there.

    Wallinger, Bickley (good lad but out of his depth), Ostergaard (clapped out), Lambert, and a few others who are being given an outing because they're in the team but who won't be challenging the bigger names. I suppose it's a good thing it's a 4TT. Anyway NB stated it was a pretty good line up (in his opinion) and I didn't agree (my opinion), which is what happens on forums. I suppose the one name still to come, could make it look more attractive though.

    Looks pretty poor to me.
