  1. Always a RACER

    01/08/2018 : Somerset v Swindon : Premiership

    I think this will be a really tight meeting maybe 47-43 either way. Let’s hope for some cracking racing. Morris was v average in the pairs so let’s see what Tungste does.

    He rides the OTA well, I remember a few good meetings he’s had for Edinburgh there I guess fixture clashes will be key with his commitments abroad

    Danny King is available now and he fits with his average - he’s got to a better bet than Vissing

    Poole v Somerset 27 June 2018

    A great win for the Rebels on a lovely summers evening. I thought Poole prepared the track quite well ensuring there was no dust but worryingly a large rut appeared on bend one about half way through the meeting which quite a few riders hit. If the Rebels can replace Vissing with a decent heat leader (we have around 7 points to play with) then we have a very good team. Covatti was excellent again and looks a great signing. Poole look in desperate need of a consistent race winner - I thought Brady was very good tonight (he was made in Somerset though :)

    That’s not the point ! You don’t chuck a race in just because your 4th what if the KL pair packed up ?

    If you’ve not been to the OTA the pits entrance is just past the 4th bend and open (with no pit gate) he came out of the 3rd bend on the 3rd lap and just looked like he gave up when stone last . Ofcourse he may have had a bike problem but it didn’t look like it

    The point is Vissing has replaced a heat leader who was regularly winning races particularly at home. The added benefit of having Covatti at reserve is lost by having Vissing - he wouldn’t even make a good reserve at this level - let alone heat leader.

    Totally agree. Gary Mays made a howler in signing Vissing he’s woeful and has to go otherwise the play offs are gone. Bring back Wrighty !!! Two other things : 1. Doyle - what was he doing in heat 13 riding into the pits with a lap to go. It didn’t look like he had a bike problem more he just threw his dummy out his pram as it wasn’t going for him. 2. The track - its been crap all season. The racing is woeful and most meetings have one line - it’s follow leader and awful entertainment despite the announcers churning out the same old tribe each week about what fantastic racing we have. Sorry this won’t wash anymore and needs sorting out. The club have had 3 months now to sort this - no more excuses get the track issues resolved and restore the OTA back to where it should be , as one of the best race tracks in the country.

    If it’s true that Charles was sacked via text that is disgraceful behaviour to an employee who has given the club 6 years loyal service.

    Gutted about this, Charles is terrific value around the OTA and Always gives 110%. I’m disappointed any differences couldn’t be resolved. The two changes significantly weaken us. I feel sorry for Jonas he was on the pace and I felt some decent scores were not far away, maybe we will use again in the future. Thank you Charles for 6 great seasons, fantastic entertainment and unquestionable commitment on the track.

    Somerset v Belle Vue 23/05/18

    A great nights entertainment, well done to the Rebels on the win and the Aces thoroughly deserved a point, they have a fine team again and will be much stronger when Steve W returns. A special mention to Todd Kurtz who covered admirably for BWD and to James Shanes who was on the pace throughout - if only that boy could make a start. Finally well done to the promotion for sorting the track out, this must have been a major concern and let’s hope it’s a sign of things to come and more great racing is ahead over the summer.
