  1. Presenters And Announcers

    Yeah unfortunately not mate, still onwards and upwards and a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all fans out there across the globe. Enjoy your racing in 2018, new rules and new chances. A big shout out to my old mate Barry Bishop who's doing some excellent work at my old stomping ground the Isle Of Wight. Might even try and squeeze in a visit in 2018 before I'm too old and past it lol.
  2. Presenters And Announcers

    I heard I'd been getting a few comments lol. Cheers for the compliment Flagrag. At the final I was actually banned so wasn't working that night, I think Rob Sensicall was on the mic and my brother was doing the music up in the box. Shame how it all ended as I'd put a lot into speedway both riding, assisting riders with sponsorship, doing the music for years, the BIKERfm Speedway Show (which was hugely popular but not BSPA approved) and then finally doing the centre green announcing. Seeing the inner workings of speedway was probably a mistake for me as I now haven't been to more than a handful of matches in the last 3 years. I think its best to remember my love for the sport in my younger years and when I was racing. I met a lot of lovely people through speedway and a few scoundrels too, I wouldn't change a thing though and have some amazing memories to take forward with me. I always tried to ensure people were entertained from the minute they entered the stadium to the minute they left as there's a lot of time to fill with 15 mins of racing. Hope everyone's enjoying the sport still, try not to take it too seriously, enjoy the racing and the friendships you make along the way.
  3. How Do We Attract A New Young Audience?

    Having attended 2 meetings in 2 years one at Wolverhampton and one at Belle Vue (both thoroughly enjoyable), it's time to realise that the sports an open wound, the powers that be aren't interested in improving the image to attract a younger audience. And many people know the passion I had for the sport in the past and the lengths I was willing to go to to make an evening at the track more entertaining. 2 meetings in 2 years, you'd never have believed it 3 or 4 years ago......
  4. Coventry 2016

    From the Official Coventry Bees Website Change On The Cards - http://www.coventrybees.co/news.php?extend.1943 This Monday sees an entertainment extravaganza for the Coventry Buildbase Bees as the good news just keeps coming and coming, arriving like buses one after each other. Firstly Popular Ex Bee Martin Smolinski makes a surprise return to Brandon to strengthen the Bees in a final push in this our swan song season. Bees Promoter Mick Horton said "Smoli had been in our plans for this season from the offset and now seems the right time to make changes, the fans are demanding it and we are listening and making the necessary alterations". Monday see's the introduction of our new Co Team Manager in the shape of ex Bees No.1 Tommy Knudsen. Tommy has heard about the Bees start to the season and knowing its our final year here he is joining the management team immediately. To have a bit of Danish flair back at our prestigious club after so many of our Nordic brothers have donned the fighting Bee over the years seems a fitting finale. Another popular returnee is Centre Green Presenter Chris Simpson who arrives hand in hand with brother Richard with all the jingles, fanfares etc which used to make the hive such a buzzing place to be. Again, fans have been asking for this for over 12 months and we're in the entertainment business so entertain we shall. You want more? After all remaining meetings in 2016 all of our riders will be in the understand bar for a meet and greet, photo opportunities and a disco till midnight. And the cherry on top......... as this is our first home Sky Meeting of the season, the gates are open to all, free of charge. Many fans have been lost along the way but in this the final season at Coventry Stadium it's time to give a little something back and we'd love to show the world how important speedway is to the people of Coventry and how important Coventry is to the world of speedway. This may be our final season at Brandon and mistakes may have been made along the way, but it's time to unite, re-ignite those old memories, dig out your old yellow and black scarves, air horns and whistles and turn this season around to make more fantastic memories our future can build upon. And then I woke up and it had all been a magical dream...............

    A lot of a little is better than a little of a lot. More people spending more money in the stadium will benefit the Bees in their final year of trading and create a better atmosphere assuming of course that the team is competitive. I'm more than happy to pay full price at the closing fixture of the 2016 season and say farewell to Brandon where I have many many memories however I doubt I'll be attending inbetween.
  6. Coventry 2016

    If people are an OAP they are an OAP regardless of wealth. If they are a student and qualify for an NUS card then they are a student regardless of time spent in college / university. Look at all the other clubs that are happy with this set up! Discussions with local colleges will do nothing to help fans travelling from further afield which obviously applies to away fans and some home fans. As an example we live 90 mins away, are Coventry Speedway going to be speaking to educational establishments in Stoke On Trent. And comically how the hell would Manchester United police this when the majority of their fans aren't local lol. If an NUS card is good enough for other tracks and also the likes of Apple, Amazon, Spotify, Frankie and Benny's etc etc you'd think it would suffice for Coventry Speedway.

    This is easily bypassed if people want to stream with a new Twitter account which doesn't reveal their identity 👍
  8. Speedway On Tv 2016

    If you type Polski into search in Navi X you get a full list including the regional TVP channels which as someone mentioned are all the same. I watched today's match on TVP Wroclaw I think but there were about 7 to choose from
  9. How Do We Attract A New Young Audience?

    As a 40 year fan of speedway I think unfortunately the end is nigh and it's too late for Speedway in the UK. After dabbling at a semi pro level I turned my hand to sponsorship manangement with various riders. Then into the music at various tracks and finally presenting. I was also involved in the hugely popular BIKERfm Speedway Show which whilst I was involved was getting a peak listenership of approx 20,000 listeners each week because it was edgy and dared to go where others wouldn't. But the show was seen as a threat by the powers that be and they did everything they could to mess it up. The only way to in my opinion to bring back the crowds in the UK would be a huge cash injection, sell it as a dangerous sport, stage manage it in respect to entertainment but not results a bit like wrestling, and a global brand sponsor. But I know unfortunately that none of this will ever happen. I attended one meeting in 2015 compared to a usual 100+ and in 2016 the only match I will go to is Coventry's last home meeting if it really is their final season. When die hards like myself give up who have it in their blood what hope is there of capturing new recruits. Enjoy it while you can and best wishes to everyone for 2016.
  10. Coventry 2016

    Think people associate Smoli with Brum now, I was just thinking Coventry through and through folk for a final fun year. Jason Jorgensen with JJ on board looking after him would just be the cherry on top for the final season. No point aiming for the playoffs, Poole fiddle a win most years anyway 😉 That team wouldn't be any where near the play offs!
  11. Coventry 2016

    For the final season lets just go for entertainment value and tryers and £1 a pint in the bar. We all know Poole will win the league again anyway so........ Kenni Larsen Chris Harris Ben Barker Jason Garrity James Sarjeant Jason Jorgensen Adam Roynon Let's have plenty or argy bargy, refuse to pay any fines and if we do fluke a final place hand the trophy over to Poole before the first leg and just ride for a laugh and go out smiling as the final curtain falls 👍
  12. Coventry V Poole 1/6/15

    Despite our pre season fall out. Gotta take my hat off tonight to Mick Horton and Havvy for standing up and not just rolling over for Sky Sports and the powers that be. Proud of the Bees tonight. The cherry on top would have been the riders and fans jumping the fence and staging a sit in, on the track so Heat 10 couldn't be run. Speedway has to change and it's great to see people saying enough's enough
  13. Coventry V Poole 1/6/15

    Unless things have changed or I completely dreamt it I think the home team gets £20k per meeting from Sky to make up for reduced crowd so at lesser supported clubs it's a better income than a normal match. Exceptions being perhaps Poole and maybe Cov. That might have change though since losing Sky as the league title sponsor.
  14. Thanks for the fans vote of confidence, we miss being part of the family at Coventry in 2015. I've not been to a single match this year, the whole episode's left a very sour taste and put speedway very much on the back burner for now.
