    Snooker tournaments are being staged at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes, most of them being shown live by Eurosport. Could the new plan involve the setting up of a temporary speedway track in the car park, and to run speedway on the days when there is no snooker happening? Eurosport could thus keep a "permanent" prescence there, and who knows, maybe Barry Hearn could become involved? Noise problem? Use e-bikes.

    Amazing what a good old punch-up can do to help build a better relationship !

    2021 speedway season !

    If the Oxford vaccine takes a few months more to be brought into use I would prefer to wait, as it will hopefully make me more intellectual and brainy.

    You can see a split developing within the Championship, in fact it's probably already there! How about a bit of good old compromise? Keep the 41 point limit to begin with. But for team changes once the season is underway, bring in additional restrictions which become tighter, the higher the rider being replaced's average is. However, if a club has an aggregate team average below a defined level, give exemption from that restriction.

    Was Stewart Dickson speaking as a knee-jerk reaction to his problems with Ellis Perks at Leicester, or was he speaking as a Director of BSP Ltd?

    The last thing a club needs, is to drive a wedge between itself and supporters who are feeling below par

    I would have concerns over many members of the team announced for 2020, in terms of competitiveness and commitment in 2021.

    It is time for Britain and Denmark to work closely together now and even have a single top level league, even better if Sweden comes on board as well. Obviuosly pandemics and Mink not withstanding

    Godfrey's 16

    So, who is on Rob Godfrey's list of 16 riders who should be first in line to be offered Championship team places, should vacancies arise this winter?

    I was surprised at the time, it took so long for the TV commentators to realise that Lindgren was nowhere near his bike, when I, with my decrepit eyesight and generally failing faculties, spotted where he went straight away!

    Poor reporting in the SS of the accident in heat 15. Nobody "piled into" Lindgren when he fell. Lindgren was thrown well clear and the only thing near to "piling in" was Wozniak clipping Lindgren's machine. Ridiculous so-called journalism

    Ah, you mean the sainted Brian? He seems to be at just about every major sporting event, wearing his CCFC shirts. I was there when he was allowed to make a marriage proposal to his friend, before one of the sessions began. Completely ruined my enjoyment and wrote in and asked for my money back, it was so nauseating. It shouldn't be allowed.

    How many tracks will run meetings

    I can see it being done like a temporary private club membership for each meeting. Only a limited number of memberships are issued, by advance purchase, and you have to provide name and address. This would also be to meet local authority requirements in case any subsequent tracking and tracing is needed. I don't think the membership charge will necessarily be cheap, either.

    How many tracks will run meetings

    "Strictly" amateur status matches/meetings, no league set-up, run with local authority permission. Online booking for limited tickets. Will be interested to see prices being charged.
