    Swindon Stadium

    It’s a matter of an opinion, is the safety area behind the fence or behind the point of impact to the fence. Opinion, nothing else. My point regarding Horsens is that at least once the 3-4 bends have been so close to the spectators that a wider racing line has given a chance to throw high5’s with riders...

    Whats the point of having a safety perimeter if its half full of fence? In my thinking the safety area is empty and flat, of course. But then again if I was the ref at Horsens SGP I'd naturally measure it from the front of the airfence, because otherwise there might not be a meeting… And in other news from Swindon, the light pilars wont be two meters from the fence as thats where the dog track is. So chin down and onwards to the next disappointment…

    I had my own project a while back and was asking about this from ”above”. Even the FIM people are not agreeing where it should be measured. 1) from the inside of the air fence to the object or 2) from the fence support pilar to the object. I can easily see a 1,2 meter difference of an opinion.

    Yes I got that. But DS was thinking the lights have to been at a certain distance now that the whole thing is rebuilt. That distance is two meters. And after that a brick wall is fine, nothing agains it in the rules. H&S in the UK I dont know about.

    Two meters is the FIM safety/landing area. After that a brick wall is fine.

    That makes sense. And a decent banking.

    Whats the two concrete walls for on the outside of bends 1-2. I dont understand the meaning of them.
  8. Bank holiday as in thursday, May 30th this year. Also the only place of the ones mentioned that Ive been to, went there for swc quali. Has a unique shape for the LT and with cheap beer and 15k people might be a good place to see longtrack racing.

    2019 Extraliga fixtures?

    Dont think even Polish cars move forward for under 20 cents a kilometer if you really do the math. It’s still just a hobby.
  10. With 2 months to go it’s announced that the U21 reserve has to take atleast one ride. EDIT: sorry, 3 months as its in the rules dated Feb 5th.

  13. You're correct 100 %. And it was a fair bit of travel involved, not my thing for the next few years. Just that I'm overqualified on the speedway side. But it would probably be better for the next MDS who's gonna re-negotiate the deals with the Polish cities and make it happen in Australia to not no bugger all about the situation...

    U really need to be a believer to see the stadium run in five years time unless serious money is pumped in to it NOW. I'd be worried.
