    Buxton vs Kent

    Shocking decision to exclude Thomas in one race, when the ref said he had been lapped... yet he fell on the last corner whilst leading, how could he possibly been lapped? Good fight back from Kent.

    Mildenhall v Birmingham

    Track looked really smooth and fast in the videos I 've seen.

    Sue I d much rather let a local cover it, with a ten hour round trip but if you get stuck I 'll be there.

    You would think there would at least be an indication of line up, especially as it's the only meeting at NL level considered as priority. What it should be is each teams highest averaged fit rider (but set a minimum of say 6 points so we don't get 2nd strings and reserves half a lap behind) and then literally go down the league averages in order. Making a line up of Kyle Bickley James Shanes Ben Wilson Jon Armstrong Georgie Wood Alfie Bowtell Jack Thomas Danny Ayres Henry Atkins Max Clegg Ben Morley Leon Flint Drew Kemp Josh Bailey Jack Smith Mark Baseby With reserves Nathan Stoneman Tom Brennan That would be some line up, worthy of anyone's entrance fee. I fear though we will get something far more then diluted then this though. As long as it looks competitive I will be heading up to support any Kent riders taking part.

    Buxton vs Kent

    With this is mind, rain given every day between now at then, and persistent rain from 4pm Saturday till 8pm Sunday. My record could well continue... Tbf that forecast is for Buxton town, rather then the track and I have friends who live in buxton. A couple of years back Benny came home from bangers like a drowned get having been fixing cars in the at time torrential persistent rain up at Hi Edge to find his Mrs needed after sun applied having spent the afternoon in the neighbours garden having a bbq. If there is any hope of it being on, I hope to be there. I think this time of the year with big fixtures coming up, the more competitive seat time the better for the boys. We have two possibly four matches against Eastbourne, and the reward for any victories there will be two matches against Mildenhall as the "prize", So as long as the riders stay safe I hope for some competitive racing. Wilson is class so will have good races with all our heat leaders, Coles has come back from injury in the fine form he showed 2nd half of 2017. Woolley is no mug, and Whitmore and Pavitt can both score well at home. Don't know much about young Douglas, but I think as a scoreline it will be comfortable for Kent maybe 10-12 points but I think there should be some cracking battles along the way.

    Celebrity fans

    I believe Keith Flint of prododgy has an interest in speedway, I know he has had a go. Whether or not attends events u don't know. Valentino Rossi was a big Thomas Gollob fan I believe.

    Play Off Run In

    Eastbourne look well set for a win after 4 heats being 19-5 already against Stoke.

    Warsaw 2019

    Was a little drunk, but what a race, what an atmosphere. https://www.facebook.com/groups/429093583853900/permalink/1683352338428012/
  11. Does anyone know, or can make an educated guess from knowing previous years dates, when tickets will go on sale for this. Last year I kinda thought it would be like Cardiff and you could pick your seat pretty much the day before the event, anyway around April after reading posts on here I looked at tickets and could only grab in the upper tier. Brilliant seats and view still (As seen by around 10k people who watched the final with me and the Mrs screaming all the way through on facebook) but I really wanna try get better tickets this year. Hopefully bringing my 8 daughter this time and my dad and bro and their partners, so to get seats together I need to get in straight away. Many thanks in advance.
  12. Is there an upto date start list available, I know this SEC line ups always seem to change more then gp's.

    A Nations League for Speedway ?

    Certainly something like this could attract tv interest in countries and on channels not yet seen before. Something like this would be awesome for top domestic British riders to hibe their skills on other tracks and make that jump upto full international level. It would need a company like Dorna to run it, if they got involved I think they could push the sport to motorcycle hotbeds yet untapped by speedway like Spain, Japan and South America. Perhaps rather then home and away fixtures, their could be five European match days And utilize more weekends in hotter climates in the European winter. It does seem crazy that a southern hemisphere country has not put up some big money to run a full set of competitions during the European winter. Take the speedway circus to the sun, surely riders would love to earn an income on a bike rather then pack them in the workshops for 6 months.

    Kent v Belle Vue 10/9/18

    Tbh, when he went over I thought his injurys would actually be far worse, considering the state of the man's body. So I am glad he has not reciev3d any life changing injuries. He has been highly entertaining to watch the few meets we have had him. But with his average dropping at the end of the month we could have troubles in the play offs.
