    Birmingham v Leicester

    Looks like the wrong call was made here the conditions by the looks and sounds of things would of been perfect for a speedway meeting.

    Birmingham v Leicester

    The current Brummies 1-7 wont win a meeting all season imo. If the racing is good i wont mind but Tobisas thomsen will be gone very shortly 1.25 ave from 4 meeting from a rider on a 4.00 ave cannot be kept im afraid. I am currently 3 miles gfrom Perry Barr and it is raining nothing heavy light to medium.
  3. Oh nice one yeah i have heard his name he is starting his first season at reserve foe the iow this year ,i will keep my eye open for him and no doubt get to see him a few times at Perry Barr as we have the Bulls and Mk Knights riding there this season.. Is there many hang around to watch the second half's? at Perry Barr its around 20% roughly.
  4. What was the second half meeting ? and who is this young rider you speak of ?

    They own i think 6 or 7 stadiums and the price of everything is set nationally. The club have and are in continuous talks with the owners to address this issue but they just wont budge i am afraid.

    Yeah running costs a arm and leg these days hahahah. Yeah your right though you are the only person who attends or has attended Birmingham speedway who has other hobbies because were all a bunch of saddos who only have speedway in our lives. You clearly have a issue with Birmingham speedway for what ever reason and to be honest it rather unhelpful and harming. It is also not true .It costs no extra to sit in the grandstand my father sometimes does both if it gets a bit nippy after the interval. Its costs £50 a season if you would like a table of 6 reserving and that is for the whole season which works out to around 60p a meeting per person roughly. There are plenty of other tables and seats where you can sit for no extra charge. So your moaning about the cost of food you dont even consume unless you go to perry barr that is for some reason bit odd that. To be honest i dont actually believe anything you have said so what sports stadiums lets you bring your own food and drink in please ? To be honest my Dad and his pal always bring a flask and i always bring food and juice for my young boy and no one has ever said anything. As for the price of beer if you want a cheap pint pop to the weatherspoons over the road but the vast majority of people go to watch the speedway .

    If you like to sit in the warm and watch the meeting there is no better track around than Perry Barr the grandstand is tiered with plenty of tables and seats that can accommodate approx 800 people although the stadiums wiki page states it can accommodate 2000. Toilets and clean and tidy both upstairs and downstairs .There is a bar for drinks both upstairs and downstairs which is very pricey £4.30 a pint .Food outlet is located downstairs does hotdogs,burgers,chips etc again over priced not eat much from there but its pretty standard for events cantering .There is now a small hut on the terrace outside where you can buy club merchandise and race programmes (which can also be purchased at the turnstiles) . overall all the facilities are decent . The prices at the bar and food outlets are set by the GRA and we have tried numerous times to get them more affordable but they wont budge. The temporary stands ,pits area,merchandise hut , turnstiles ,changing room ,junior pits,track,kick boards and all the machinery are Maintained and owned by Birmingham speedway and a lot of hard work has gone in over the winter by officals and supporters to maintain these. Would you care to expand on what was so awful about the facilities and we could pass it in to the management .They are always after feedback and are always looking to improve the supporters experience.

    Care to expand ? any suggestions how it could be improved ? what did you find funny ? and what do you find cringe worthy ?

    Brummies v Rebels 17.04.19

    well contributed to what was a brilliant brilliant meeting twists and turns and well done somerset ,in fact well done all 14 riders you served up the best meeting i have seen in years at perry barr. As for guests and attracting big names to this country it matters not one bit to people because that 4 million people would not have a clue who anyone is anyway. Producing racing like i witnessed tonight every week would get 4 million people interested. We will have to agree to disagree on the guest ruling but i want to be entertained first and win second.

    Brummies v Rebels 17.04.19

    I disagree personally i would rather see a competitive meeting with 7 riders each side if that means a single guest tonight so be it.

    Is it on tonight guys ?

    Premiership • Wolverhampton v Swindon • 15/04

    Will be my first trip to Monmore this season and looking forward to what should be a good competitive meeting . Prediction 49-41 home win .
  14. Interesting meeting this one . Finding it difficult to call so should be a tight meeting heart is saying 46-44 but head is saying 44-46. I think we bash them up in the lower order and get bashed up in the heat leader stakes. If we can get rory and bomber beat in a heat each i think we stand a chance.

    Glasgow v Berwick April 12th

    Not jealous because i much prefer competitive racing than my team win give me a 46-44 all day . So my question is it not boring having craig cook in your team tootling round in front unchallenged for 33% of tonight's total heats ? seems a bit boring and pointless to me ? maybe i am wrong and its really entertaining for the masses just not me .
