    Sheffield 2019

    I think the only viable option is part-time or semi-pro racing, based around weekends and bank holidays, It's embarrassing to see meetings on TV with a pathetic number of spectators, we used to get bigger crowds for junior league meeting years ago, I doubt if any club in the country could pay it's way on just gate receipts.

    David Wallinger Ludicrous situation.

    Amusing that some refer to Wallinger as a 'lad.'

    Scunthorpe 2019

    A stockcar driver?

    Belle Vue v Ipswich 03/06/19

    Because it's the best track in the country and the crowd is an embarrassment.

    REDCAR 2019

    Yes but he would be a disaster, you need someone who can win races, otherwise you might as well bring in Wallinger or Parr.

    REDCAR 2019

    He didn't make a lot of progress did he?

    REDCAR 2019

    Becker would be good but would his visa allow it?

    REDCAR 2019

    I don't they discussed the reason (other than just speculation) just the fact that rumours suggested he might leave.

    REDCAR 2019

    I have a feeling he won't be riding anywhere but it's just a hunch.

    REDCAR 2019

    Ben Barker has been released by Redcar and a replacement (as yet un-named) has been found. Personal issues was the only reason given.
  12. Apart from a couple of races I found this event boring, Tatum and Pearson where obviously under instruction to big it up but their misplaced enthusiasm (often after yet another procession) was frankly embarrassing, that is when you could actually decipher Tatum's slurred words (what is it he crams into his mouth in the latter stages of most meetings?).

    British Semi Final

    And a rather unimpressive trio replaces them.

    SoN Belle Vue

    Apart from the run-off heats I've really enjoyed both meetings, bringing back the World Cup would just be handing it to Poland.

    Ipswich 2019

    I wasn't aware of that. Apologies for being wrong.

    Ipswich 2019

    Once the squad is declared you can't change it, surely it's better to have a half-fit rider than no rider.

    Ipswich 2019

    He can't take time off, that would mean our SON squad was a man down, Bomber would never let the country down.

    2019 SoN Draw

    Yes but Harris has the experience abroad and you have to stick with your squad throughout, anyway Harris isn't likely to ride in the Belle Vue round, it'll be Cook, Lambert and Woffinden.

    2019 SoN Draw

    He hasn't had a good start to the season, the right riders have been selected.

    Once a Jolly Swagman

    Did you notice that it's anti Speedway?

    Scunthorpe v Redcar CS 26.4.2019

    That'll make a change, after some recent performances.

    Maciej Janowski

    Gin for breakfast was it?
  23. It'll be an easy home win, not because BV have a particularly good team but because t'other lot have cut their own throats.

    Peterborough Panthers 2019

    Can't beat a good rave.
