  1. King's Lynn v Belle Vue 18/04/18

    Forget about the hot laps, get to the pits early and watch the formation skipping!!!!
  2. Mildenhall v IOW sun8th April 3 pm

    Looking at the met office forecast ... Only one winner here!!!
  3. Unfortunately I think Panthers will be lucky to get within 10 points of Ipswich!! But then I am always a glass half empty guy!!
  4. Gardening Back !!!!!

    It was working .... therefore no option but to change it!!!
  5. I have to say I was surprised Panthers won this meeting. I know Lakeside had not ridden as a team but I believe they had all had competitive rides prior to yesterday, certainly those doubling with Swindon had ridden a few times, whereas only Scott had taken part in any form of meeting on the Panthers side. On paper it was always going to be a tough meeting for Panthers so it was pleasing to actually get the win. As to who did what, the score card shows .. but I thought Tom Bacon looked more on the pace than previously and probably deserved a bit more points wise. I still believe that it will be a difficult season for this Panthers team, but we are running and off with a win.

    For some reason I missed this !!! Must be age!! Anyone know if a copy is available anywhere, it appears no re print is on the cards??

    Doesn't matter now what the weather does for the next 3 days, the track will not dry enough. It will be cold and cloudy. The only thing that could of saved the meeting was 3 or 4 days of sunshine/wind and a temperature about 25 to 30 degrees higher than its going to be!!
  8. Caption fun...

    Think it may have needed a bit more that giving the leagues a different name!!!
  12. Bt Sport Coverage

    Speedway should have used TV coverage to promote itself ... that word is the ultimate problem!! It didnt. The opportunity was there for those in charge at the time to give it a re imaging, it should have taken a hard look at sports such as darts and especially Rugby League who just about gave a rebirth to their sports image. Unfortunately Speedway plodded along with the old, tired meeting format from a wandering amble of centre green staff to the tune of Fanfare for the Common Man or similar soundtrack to endless gaps in racing for numerous reasons. The chance for reviving the sport has now, unfortunately, IMO, gone.
  13. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    That may account for why the rule was brought in!!!!!
  14. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    That seems more likely!!
  15. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    It's a simple fact of sport, it doesn't matter what day of the week it is, or what sport it is, if the team is getting beaten regularly ... the crowds will drop!! Doesn't take a genius to see that!!
