    So does that make Little Britain OK?
  2. When I ”started” he won his last U21 title in -04 or something. He’s not going anywhere.
  3. Copypaste from FIM After two very restricted seasons, followers of Long Track can look forward to a full programme of events in 2022 with six Finals scheduled in the calendar now published by FIM. Rzeszow opens the championship in June followed by Mühldorf in July and Scheessel in August. September brings a feast of meetings in Morizes, Vechta and Roden. FIM have also announced the full list of riders for the season which includes the top seven riders from last year’s competition. Current champion Romano Hummel heads the list and is joined by former winners Martin Smolinski, Dimitri Bergé and Lukas Fienhage. Theo Pijper, Chris Harris and Josef Franc are other names that will be familiar to fans. Qualifying from 2021’s Long Track Challenge, Germany’s Max Dilger will join Britain’s Zack Wajtknecht another European Champion, promising Pole Stanislaw Burza and Czech Martin Malek returns at 36 years of age. Permanent Wild Cards for the series will be Kenneth Kruse Hansen strongly tipped by Danish legend Erik Gundersen as a future world champion. He performed well in 2020 with a silver medal but missed 2021 due to an early season injury. Former European Champion James Shanes is also included and is another whose progress has been held back by injury. Finally, Mathieu Trésarrieu, champion in 2017 and four-times bronze medallist returns to the series. Substitute riders to be called on in the event of injury will be • Hynek Stichauer (Czech Republic) who finished 8th in the 2021 Challenge • Gaetan Stella (France) gradually rising in the French rankings • Dave Meijerink (The Netherlands) 21 years old and a promising prospect • Jakob Bukhave (Denmark) Danish Long Track Champion • Julien Cayre (France) 11th in the 2021 Challenge • Tero Aarnio (Finland) extensive speedway experience The curtain opener for the 2022 season will be the Long Track of Nations to be held in Herxheim, Germany at the traditional Father’s Day meeting on May 26th when nine national teams will compete. Provisional 2022 Long Track calendar • TBA-Final-Rzeszow (POL)-PZM • 03 July-Final-Mühldorf (GER)-DMSB • 21 August-Final-Scheessel (GER)-DMSB • 03 September-Final-Morizès (FRA)-FFM • 10 September-Final-Vechta (GER)-DMSB • 25 September-Final-Roden (NED)-KNMV

    There is nothing mentioned in anyway about it in the press release, which i find a bit odd...

    Just realised there is no ice SoN for this winter. Any info on that?
  6. Spent a night in Warsaw on our way home from Torun recently. It’s a BIG city with skyscrapers everywhere. For some reason did not like it, at all. I’d do Wroclaw if I had the chance.

    So had I written ”contact the local promoter” instead of club it would have been ok? It makes me smile reading that I just cant ring a promoter in the UK and tell him I want to organise a training day. Why the heck not? If I had the money I’d call Lemon tomorrow I dont know everything about how speedway is run in the UK, but I know enough. Think my first post mentioned also finding the money that is necessary to run the said training session. I know how speedway is run and how it operates over here, and contacting the local club would be the first step in order to organise a training day or school or whatever…

    It would seriously alter the cost stucture of the teams and I dare say it would be cheaper to run a team of 5-2 in favour of own riders than the other way around. Also in my theory locals would come see local riders. The way things are currently heading with covid, travel, speedway on the continent and brexit, IMO there is no return to how things were five years ago. With this I mean the supply of foreign riders to ride and/or base themselves in the UK is not increasing. So more domestic/british riders, more locals, cheaper teams, bigger crowds.

    It’s directed to everyone complaining how badly things are run.

    Stop complaining on what other people do. Contact your local track and start organising practise sessions for youngsters between 14-20 on 500cc bikes. If the club wont finance it, find the money yourself and DO IT. Lack of domestic riders in the UK is the very basic problem of speedway, been that way for 30 years.

    ...and in the latest news if the BSPA don't do it, someone else will latest 2023. Maybe not ban cos it sounds bad, but a contract clause that does the same.
