  1. Completely different meeting to Toruń. Madsen showed his class again, not his best meeting but can pull something out of the bag when needed. The final was interesting, 2 Russians v 2 Danes, 5-1 to Denmark. In the final I was pretty sure Emil was letting Laguna get 2nd place, trouble for him was Michelson had his own agenda and I was glad to see him take the 2 Ruskies on the last bend. Robert doing well, obviously not got the experience yet that some of the other mature riders have, but he will learn a lot this season, likewise Smektala. Timo Lahti doing ok, not spectacular in any specific way, but he’s in the mix mostly. Great track, missed it these last few years, glad it’s back, want more of it. Great meeting.

    2020 ODDS FOR WORLD CHAMPION

    But does Vaculik have the consistency. More then a few riders have the talent.

    Rest of the GP series

    Depends on what the first meeting was like as to whether I would want to watch a second meeting, Prague GP can be iffy.

    Swindon Stadium

    The east side of Manchester is a sports village spread over a large area. The true legacy of the Commonwealth games is the main stadium for athletics etc, which is now Manchester City football club, plus the the cycling velodrome which is now the National Velodrome. See the title National Velodrome..... I would suggest Manchester City Council embraced a new speedway stadium for the most famous speedway team in the world, Belle Vue, because it would be called the National Speedway Stadium. Indeed, they may, I don’t know, have insisted if they were to invest money then the stadium had to be called National Speedway Stadium. I don’t know what the ground the new NSS stands on was used for but it is next to a road on one side (grandstand side), an indoor sport facility (turn 1 & 2), houses (back straight), and 3 outdoor pitches (turn 3/4). All these were in place before the speedway track/stadia was built. The track, grandstand and back straight are all brand new. You recall the new BVue got off to a bad start when the first meeting, Peter Craven Memorial, which attracted a world class field (which had to be paid for) was called off (when the stadium was full) due to problems on bends 3/4 which had nothing to do with BV management but all to do with Man.City Council sub contractors. BV invested a lot of money on the first meeting, punters had to be refunded, leaving BV playing catch up all year money wise.

    Antti Pajari - Coventry "Bee"

    I didn’t realise he only did 12 meetings for Coventry. I got to see him at Belle Vue when Coventry came visiting, I was only 12 at the time but remember we used to call him ”Aunties Pyjamas”.

    Polish Speedway on TV

    The two Polish league matches shown Sunday evening on Box Nation absolutely board me. The racing wasn’t all that brilliant, but the interlude between each race was terrible. Ok, they show a re-run of the best parts of race just finished, then they showed rerun of the race before that, and the race before that, then start all over again. And the music that accompanied these reruns, terrible. Grump over!

    What else do Walkers make at the Leicester factory?
  9. Terrible race track, most of the time I couldnt believe I was watching a meeting fro Torun. Processional racing after first half lap a lot of the time. Good to see NP up there with them still. Madsen at times showed his true skills, but the star of the night was Robert Lambert, now I can see how the injuries carried into last year were holding him back, hop he can keep up the good form. Zmarzlick, well he was going to win it or be an also ran. Lets face it, he was the wild card, probably not going to be in any other rounds, therefore no chance of winning the title, so why bust a gut. He did what he did and got some practice in against a field of (mostly) top guys. Disappointing one was Gregory Laguta - impressive when on form, which he was not.

    Great Yarmouth/norfolk

    Looked down on the stock car track in Yarmouth using Google Maps. It looks the wrong shpe to produce good racing. Long straights compared to tightish corners.

    Zlata Prilba 2020

    Yes they did, hugh table across Charles Bridge, pre booking only, no social distancing, bring your own food & drink - but it was shared apparently. It was as if was a celebration for taking covid19 down to zero ie it doesnt exist. Sees they shot themselves in the foot, the virus is not dead - its deadly. Now they finding out the foolishness of there actions. Potentially putting no speedway in Prague ie GP. Must be a concern for medic pros in the UK - opening pubs and eating places this Saturday. Fancy doing that on a Saturday when most people able to go to work will be off. Roads will be crazy, pubs/cafes/restaurants will be as full as can be, staff not only getting used to working again but also getting used to new practices - I can see spikes coming in a week or two.

    leicester lions track hire ?

    There was a thread couple months ago, maybe less, where some contributors on here seemed knowledgable on streaming, maybe they would know about stream and blocking. If, not, there is likely to be someone out there in the uk speedway world that would provide info.

    As I said it needs someone with the vision to go where they not been before, either that of speedway in the uk stays stagnant and rots away.

    But with something like speedway, it’s spectators will likely not only come from all areas of Leicester but from areas 20-30 miles or more beyond. I still don’t think there will be any speedway in the uk where spectators will be allowed, so no paying punters equals no speedway. Of course speedway could be streamed but do British speedway promotors have the vision to do that?
