  1. Re Government money for sport. This was for WINTER sports. Also speedway - for what it is in spectator appeal nationwide about 20,000 a week!!!- would have come under the umbrella of MOTORSPORT.

    I don't understand why you made this comment. My Post was to ask if the criteria put forward for discussion was achieving that. There was not in my opinion anything detrimental in regard to the sport. All I asked was were th´points being put forward being fulfilled. The tally of responses so far made give that answer as I see it.
  20. Details of the new non-speedway stadium at Plough Lane, former home of the Wimbledon Dons, oval circuit car racing and greyhound racing: https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/12893625/afc-wimbledon-new-ground-first-inside-look?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=sharebarweb&fbclid=IwAR3lmRlFhU9ZtWc8xX9VRH_FUymefHdFyYjJr9heFN-HxyrVgK-Y2T0ikcU
  21. It would depend upon the criteria as to whether the event was for natural Australian riders or an open championship for riders competing in Australia.
