    Article in Today's Guardian Newspaper

    A lot of press coverage there........ will it bring in the expertise, money and vision to breathe life into speedway that is much needed.

    Swindon Stadium

    Well, I must admit I never thought I would see work on the track. I thought it was a gonner. What is the smaller track used for?
  3. It’s a fine line, but sometimes no they are not the same, timing of a run is ultra critical.
  4. But F1 track conditions can also change, Phil. today in Aussie, 20 cars start careering round very fast more rubber was laid on the track, therefore more grip, so they went faster. also, track temperatures can rise or fall during qualifying, which affects “stickiness” for the better or worse.

  7. Just checked on the go website, the senior concession has gone up to £20. I think that is a bargain for a go, never mind a go at a great stadium. Don’t think you get a seat on the start gate area, but I was always a 3rd bend Belle Vue fan. There is lots of choice and I used to phone to book my seats and ask for end of row seats so ease of getting out to go to loo. Mind, I used to book very early so had that choice available. re the lift, they not going to stick seniors up on the 3rd tier without easy access. As I said, the lift was their, but we could make the stairs, I appreciate others can’t. you could always phone to book your ticket and make an enquiry.
  8. Wife and I went 3 years running 2013-2015 and sat in £19 seats, yes they were in the 3rd tier on the 3rd bend, got a splendid view. We did the stairs, but there is a lift.
  9. For those looking for rooms in Cardiff for the Speedway GP, Premier Inn have just announced the launch of low cost rooms and Cardiff if the first place to offer them. Called ZIP rooms and from £19 per night for 2 persons. The Cardiff Zip hotel is on the east of the city centre, probably 30 min walk from the stadium. https://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/zip.html?rid=2783715&mid=123685200&CID=EMC_MKT_BAU_getmore_NULL_NULL_20190307_DM6847

    Capacity of Speedway Stadiums

    Does'nt really matter which has the largest capacity........ sadly none are going to be anywhere near filled - except BV for the SON
  11. I remember Colin Wheeler, a great rider. I raced in the Manchester league back in the 60's. Manchester had more then a few great riders headed by Brian Moston, Derek Garnett and Vic Hinchcliffe.

    2019 Odds for World Champion

    Sad to see Zagar so far down. If he could hit the first few meetings on form I reckon good chance of top 3. On form he is a class rider.
  13. Did he really say "thinking", or did he mean "stinking"

    I would love to see a GP held at NSS but would 9k crowd make a meeting profitable for all concerned? Personally, I wouldn’t even attempt to go, and I live just 30-35 mile away. I would imagine there would need to be in place a big Tv contract, and I would expect to pay extra, on top of my current BT subscription. World championship boxing matches charge for one off fights, so why not speedway for the big ones.

    It was always the plan to use NSS for other purposes, that’s why the centre green has been marked out as a pitch since virtually day one. Weddings were proposed, perhaps there has been , I don’t know. The function room is there for events 7 days a week I would have thought. Someone needs to manage and promote this side of management t, and I don’t know whose responsibility that is. what are the temporary terracing you mention in your 4th paragraph?
