    Leicester Lion Cubs vs B.V. Colts 14 May 2022

    I think the answer to your question is, They have certainly not outgrown the National league. In the 2 National league standard meetings the twins have ridden in this season at other tracks ( both independent tracks ) Mildenhall & Kent, the twins have managed 4 race wins out of 19 races between them, both were beaten 5 times by home riders at Kent yesterday. So yes there is no doubt other riders will push them and in my opinion the National league is perfect for their continued progress in the the sport. Have to say some of the races the twins were in yesterday were fantastic and I really hope to see them back at Kent again this season.

    Planning restriction says no music allowed!

    Kent 2022

    Plenty of parking, they are opening up a field on the left as you drive into the 'stadium'. Other tips. Bring a chair if you want to sit down. Bring an extra coat if its cold and try the burgers the one I had at p & p was lovely.

    Belle Vue 2022

    All riders had the same time out with Covid. Has Palin not been injured?

    Belle Vue 2022

    This is Brennan's 7th season of racing compared to Palin 4th season, you would expect Brennan to be scoring a lot more points than Palin.

    NDL 2022 - Predictions

    Have to agree, Gilkes finished comfortably as the top man last season & I don't see any reason for him not to be top again this season, followed by Bowtell, Jenkins & Dan Thompson. Belle Vue to win the league & Ablitt to be pushing for BV No 1.

    Kent 2022

    Kent 1st home meeting will be on Easter Sunday. Kent 1st away meeting 29th March v Plymouth.

    Kent 2022

    And with Danno in the team maybe we will be getting some visitors from the island. Yes, because Kent were not accepted into the league until late December riders like Spooner & Foord had already signed for other clubs, both of them extremely popular with Kent supporters and would definitely signed for again for Kent. I would assume Hagon, Mulford, & possibly Clouting will be going to Oxford. Doesn't leave a lot.

    Leicester Lion Cubs 2021

    This season Paul Starke, Jordan Jenkins (rode for Redcar/Mildy) and Dan Gilkes were Kent assets, I'm not sure if there were any others. I don't think any rider under 16 can be an asset of any club.

    Kent 2022

    I believe It is all about working within the existing planning restrictions. Midday start would give time for Development meetings/practice.

    Kent 2022

    Midday on Sunday. I think they can only run a maximum of 2 Sundays per month. The idea is to run juniors after the NL meeting until 4pm. I think they are also allowed to practice 1 day during the week.

    I think Clouting & Foord have signed elsewhere, unfortunately.

    Kent 2022

    A bit like Buxton but colder & not so many facilities.

    Kent 2022

    Certainly will be different!! I understand an agreement is in place to use the large field next to the track as a car park and I'm sure a burger van and hire in loos won't be a problem but its going to take more than a couple of old concrete bunkers for spectators to view the track.

    Race

    Iwade. Sunday mid day. I think the idea is to have a second half of junior development league racing & junior practice until 4pm.

    Kent 2022

    Unfortunately Spooner has already signed elsewhere.

    NEWCASTLE DIAMONDS 2022

    BWD certainly didn’t have British citizenship this season either as Kent had agreed a deal with him to ride but couldn’t get the paperwork so signed Batchelor instead.

    NEWCASTLE DIAMONDS 2022

    Yes I think you are right. Thats how he managed to ride in the NL for Eastbourne.

    Kent kings are no more ??

    Uncle Len has retired, he gave the air fence etc to Iwade purely to help them out & not specifically to run a team from there. BUT. If they now have the equipment a NL team is a possibility.

    Kent kings are no more ??

    Except Kent have had excellent support all season & as mentioned before, yet again posted a profit. Right up until a few days before Len announced his retirement he was talking about next season & told supporters at the last meeting he would see them next easter. So something happened in those few days. I suspect ARC changed their minds & wanted more rent than previously agreed based on the support Kent were getting & Len walked away. Hopefully after a year with no rent from speedway a new promoter might find ARC more accommodating.

    Kent kings are no more ??

    There is another statement on the Kent website that clears a few things up. Len originally wanted to go Premier league but it created too many problems so decided CL was the limit, the biggest problem is the curfew of finishing racing by 8.30, so I doubt PL will ever be at CP.

    Berwick Bullets 2021

    I am sooooooo jealous.

    Not sure where you have read the crowd levels were not as high as expected? The support this season at Kent has been really good. In fact recently Len publicly stated Kent were on course to make a profit for the 8th year running. Also as a thank you to the supporters he gave 1/3 off the entrance fee for the last home match. It is obvious that agreement with the new owners not just about rent but I suspect other things as well cannot be reached.
