    Rebels vs Pirates

    On Wed Yes but i understand that other meetings have been different which would suggest that it was prepared with the possibility of rain

    Rebels vs Pirates

    Spot on Najjer , first time at the OTA this year for me. Racing wise the track was terrible anyone who went wide went backwards. Don't know if the possibility of rain influenced the way it was prepared. they used to rip up the outside before the start to create dirt ... not last night though. Rowe had a good meeting

    Najjer sorry you feel that way but i followed a team that folded .. Exeter and since then have followed Somerset for my speedway fix ... any speedway is better than none and you miss it when its not there. The OTA is top racing whatever league you are in and the management do a good job unlike others. hope to see you there sometime all the best to you and your family

    Who said Somerset were strapped for cash in the Championship, Premiership possibly, "cut your coat according to the cloth" comes to mind They had the sense not to throw money away so that they could operate at a lower level , not like some other clubs who have gone to the wall (unfortunately)

    Fridays on the M5 are horrendous I travel up from Exeter and that's really bad, coming the other way is even worse.

    This explains a few things from the Rebels web site Garry May delighted the gathering of over 100 supporters at the Oaktree Arena on Tuesday night when he confirmed the return of Nico Covatti and the addition of Cornishmen Chris Harris to the Rebels fold.Earlier the assembly had heard that the Rebels management found themselves in a no-win situation at the AGM conference as they were keen to continue in the Premiership but a combination of costs and the need to change race nights again made it impractical to maintain their membership at the top flight.Debbie Hancock said "I am sat here this evening still gutted and feeling a sense of failure that we can't bring you the top level speedway, but our ultimate aim has to be the long-term future of Somerset speedway, something that Garry and Dad Bill, share my passion for, so I can only hope that our supporters will continue to support us. We do struggle with footfall here at Somerset because we are not a big town club like many of the Premiership rivals so we have to manage our costs carefully and we could not afford the high costs associated in that league."With a team limit of 38 points to work with for the Championship, Garry May admitted "it has been devilishly hard to work within such a limit but I promise Rebels fans I will put together the best possible team I can that will not break us as a club. I can confirm that Nico Covatti will be returning after his excellent time here last season when he came on board mid-season and I can also reveal that a deal has been done with Chris Harris who is very keen to ride for us and I believe will do a great job.

    Najjer if it stands as it is it you could be correct but if the 2 NL teams enter the league there could be more league match's , Don't forget the Championship have 2 cups to play for so could be more. I like your good self a little disappointed. The racing last year was great with usually 4 riders contesting each race not 2 x 2 man races for each heat. On the plus side we still have racing and a team to watch.
