    Coventry Drone

    I'd love to see Coventry back up and running and would throw in all the bits we used to do presentation wise and centre green wise for free as we did at Leicester to try and keep the name going. But that's purely because I'm a Coventry fan and have had the sport drilled into me from birth to now. The problem is anybody investing in speedway full stop in the UK would be doing it for the love of the sport and for the memories in the Bees case of years gone by. Anyone investing in speedway will only lose there money going forwards, speedway in it's current guise is not where the British public want to spend their hard earned coin. It's not moved with the times and the terraces are getting emptier and emptier as sadly followers of our beloved sport pass away. Just be glad of all the memories you have as future one's may be sparser to come by

    It's changed a fair bit in 2 years
  3. It mentions in the press release the 2 metre self distancing will be observed. How can this happen across the start line or during a race?

    I think the Coventry Bees team released a song?

    Smolinski is good for any club just on team spirit alone, plus the added bonus of showmanship and professionalism.

    12 hours later, that signing speaks volumes

    King would be an awesome signing if still available

    Nope I'm convinced of it, even if he's more expensive it makes business sense.

    Wolverhampton 2020

    With no Cradley Heathens in 2020 and assuming Greg's wifes health concerns are all gone it seems obvious to me that it'll be Greg Hancock for his last season in Speedway full stop. Makes business sense as Wolverhampton will be packed with a mixture of Heathens and Wolves fans

    Sheffield 2020

    What's the usual start time now at Sheffield for Heat 1? The team so far could well attract extra fans from all around the country so Season Ticket sales should be up. Personally I'm in Staffordshire and it would take 1 hour 45 mins to get over plus getting out of work at 5pm, so home for 5:30pm and then anything up to 2 hours in evening traffic to get over to Sheffield would mean the earliest I'd arrive would be 7:30pm.

    What riders may come back to UK in 2020?

    I'll just sit here smiling smugly with my arms folded

    Speedway's future IMO

    If you're looking to add things to the night to entice families to attend etc the cost spread amongst your whole crowd could be very minimal. Working on a crowd of say 1000. Band or DJ to play throughout interval and in bar after meeting - £250 Free Bouncy Castle for Kids - £100 Beat the Starter - Fastest Time of the Night wins £50 mounted on a home team riders 2nd bike which kids and fans get the chance to sit on. A4 Colouring in Stencil of Rider to give out free to kids - Say 300 at 10p each - £30 Free Draw to watch a race from centre green based on ticket number - FREE Photo & Autograph Session with 1 x Home Team Rider per meeting before meeting - FREE Sweets for home team to throw out to crowd on parade - £50 Then just add anything that money can't buy in relation to fans mingling with their heroes. Just the above would offer better value for money, everyone loves something that appears to be free. Cost of the above £480 divided by 1000 fans = 48 pence. It's not exactly rocket science is it ?!?!?!?

    AJ retires

    I only meant from the point of view of that he could have been World Champion mate. TK was a Bee through and through

    AJ retires

    Very similar to TK from a Coventry viewpoint and potentially being a World Champion. Charismatic, Dependable and capable of beating anyone in the world day in day out. Happy Retirement AJ

    Rossiter Stands Down

    Well Done Rosco, I doubt very much it's a compensated role, so thanks for your service. You can only work with the tools your given and when some of your competition is having money thrown at them for engines and tuning etc it's not hard to see why we don't finish on top despite having Tai.
  19. Any online betting for this? I fancy Cook if he’s good odds?

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    Thinking of popping along to the next home meeting as a few Ex Bees riders racing for Somerset, just waiting to see the team Brum will be fielding.
  21. If anyone ever wants any Bees music or jingles that we used feel free to drop me a message and I'll send you an mp3 link
