    Ty Proctor likes to help out in the pits, so is probably a good team man. Think his shoulder/neck injury was a problem for a long time, that kind of thing often takes a long time to get resolved and its something that adversely affects speedway riders with the physical demands the bikes put on those areas of the body.

    If Iversen had to choose between Danish and British leagues (and was free to do so), which would he go for?

    Rider submits a transfer request to the "owning" club, naming the new club as the other party. The two clubs fail to agree on a transfer fee, meaning it has to go to an arbitration. Meanwhile, whilst the arbitration date is awaited, BSPA sanction the rider moving to the new club and the season starts with him in the team. The arbitration (eventually) sets a transfer fee but the new club appeals the decision. Transfer fee finally ratified, but the new club just doesn't pay. Repeat as necessary.

    I think you will find they are injuries caused by getting off the handcuffs put on him by Mr Ford
  5. So where did it all go wrong?

    The pressure will be on Newman to deliver, early doors.

    Don't worry. The country is being turned into a throwback to the 1950's, so Speedway will fit in very well indeed. Keep calm, and stay analogue.

    Hans Andersen and Lasse Bjerre? You might have something there!

    Ref should be able to decide. Let it continue if the culprit doesn't gain an advantage, stop and exclude if he does. No replacement allowed, no 15 yard handicap. All remaining riders straight back to the start if it's stopped for an exclusion. If someone breaks the tapes it has to be a restart. Refs also need to release the tapes promptly.

    Must have been intimidating for the riders having a gigantic dog on the first bend terracing

    If they could take the bold step of scaling back and then work to produce a credible business plan for 2019 or 2020 onwards, they could try going onto Dragons Den for investment and additional expertise. Would need somebody with appropriate expertise in pitching to be the front person, though. One wonders which Dragon would be most likely to be interested??

    It would not surprise me if the Premiership league has to be scrapped at least for one year and who knows maybe longer whilst the situation is properly resolved with all parties involved including media and marketing. There will still be two leagues operating, anyway. And if the "not enough riders" cry goes out, split the bigger league into two regions with very limited doubling up and Crystal clear rules about who rides for who in playoffs, or get a load of cheaper Danes and Germans in to backfill.
  14. New Sponsors for SGB?

    So who will Santa Claus deliver to the BSPA as the new main sponsors of SGB? Costcutter? Specsavers?

    I think we now have a generation of men in their 20's, 30's and 40's (maybe more) who are obsessed by betting on sport, who probably find it strange that speedway meetings don't allow on-course betting. Look at who sponsors a lot of sport nowadays......
