    REDCAR 2019

    I think a very big problem is tracks, most are inaccessible unless you have transport and when you get there the facilities are embarrassing. What produced great racing in the days of the upright engine, isn't now up to the job, Belle Vue is brilliant (but too pricey) but some (once great) raceways are now too narrow and the bends aren't flowing enough.
  5. I think it's just a novelty, they need new ideas because in total attendances are down.
  6. Barker, Nicholls, King and Masters, so far.

    You're being over-kind.

    Because it's feared that they might be carrying nasties.

    The main one being that he's a miserable little git.

    Tungate won't create the unity in the pits that Harris would have, Poole discovered that Harris is worth far more than just the points he scores, so those who think this makes the team stronger, I wouldn't be too sure.

    10 favourite Irish riders

    I remember Richie Tyler from Ireland, doing a second half at Halifax (late60s-early70s).

    10 favourite British riders

    Frank Varey, Jack Parker, Tommy Roper, Eric Boothroyd, Arthur Forrest, Graham Plant, Nigel Boocock, Mark Loram, Andrew Silver and Kenny Carter. I never saw Varey ride but we were born in the same village and he was a friend of my dad, who was also a motorcyclist.
  14. Maybe a one-off for this year....http://www.redcar-speedway.com/2019/01/24/barkers-testimonal-plans-revealed/

    He didn't keep quiet, he made a statement about it on Twitter.

    George Mudgway, Bradford, 1947

    Jade Mudgway is from NZ and rode here a few years back, he now lives in the north and will be Redcar team manager in the coming season, could be linked?

    A top 10 to be proud of.

    This is impossibly difficult, if pride is simply achievement then just go through the records and list the most impressive but if pride means someone who seemed to give their all, no matter what, then we get down to our personal experiences in whatever capacity we attended Speedway. Blokes who gave their all and who readily come to mind (mine that is) are; Aub Lawson, Nigel Boocock, Peter Craven, Torbjorn Harrysson and Andrew Silver. I think someone who you know is doing their best, is at least as impressive as someone who has the winning formula and seems to find it oh so easy.

    Not rideing

    You can't even spell his name right, let alone the heading.

    Workington 2019

    It does but this has proven that the team was hired falsely, if you aren't sure of running you shouldn't be able to assemble a side, most if not all of those riders would have been snapped up months ago if they had been known to be available.

    I think think next years team is better than this year's was.

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    Instead of going round every thread making provocative remarks, why not just top yourself? That way we'll all be happy.

    REDCAR 2019

    It's "should HAVE been compulsory" and it shouldn't. I thing British Speedway should give opportunities to young British riders, I think this years setup looks both refreshing and exciting and a pleasant change from helping foreign riders develop.

    Don't cream your pants.
