  1. Leicester area seems to have been badly afflicted by overly pessimistic weather forecasts this summer. So many days I've lost count of them, when a full-on rain forecast for most of the day has turned out to be a short shower or two. But occasionally it catches you out by being correct but I'd say only about 20 percent this year. Very vexing indeed!
  2. I recall watching them doing practice starts and remarking I didn't realise how similar looking Edward Kennett is to Kev Doolan. The penny dropped that it actually was Kev Doolan, but don't recall any announcement being made about the change.
  3. Was it the Shield final in 2019 when a leading Eastbourne rider (could have been Kennett) was replaced by Kevin Doolan (who at least did ride) at very late notice?
  4. Wouldn't it be in the best interests of the landlords if they improved access to the track for the Brummies in order for them to carry out the track preparation more satisfactorily? Otherwise, they are at risk of losing rental income, and have to incur the time and costs of cleaning up the stadium after a speedway match?

  6. You certainly wouldn't have liked it (the track) prior to the alterations carried out by the current owners and promoters! It was almost as off-putting as the constant rubbish peddled by the previous owner and promoter (same person as designed the track). Now, I just take the attitude of, to use the favourite phrase of T. Woffinden, "it is what it is" and fully appreciate that Stewart Dickson & co are doing their very best to enhance what they are working with, and generally are doing a fine job. The alterations have helped, too, and probably the current owners and sponsors have contributed significantly.

    Will they have a 28 day guest rider facility for "rider witholding his services"? I wouldn't rule out the chances of Ty Proctor returning but only riding in the Championship. As for Josh Bates, what about Lewis Bridger as a replacement??

    I think that Proctor and Bates have both had employment from the Bates family businesses as key workers in Sewage and Waste Water. I'm not sure if this is still the case, but if they are still engaged as key workers, could that be a factor in their struggling a bit, so far? In the case of the Thompsons, surely it is better a case of "steady as it goes" at present and assess them fairly at end of the season?

    Is Dakota Ballantyne eligible to get a visa?

    I'd hang on until they make the next signing. A former world champ now living in California??

    Is that down to him having signed a contract in Sweden since Swindon withdrew, or would it just not be possible for a GB team to fit him into the new averages limits?

    Has there been any word yet from Jason Doyle about his plans for the season?
