    Fixtures

    I would much rather they delay the fixtures to ensure for example we get Belle Vue away on Friday and the following night stoke, and say Leicester on the Sunday. Thats what the fixtures have lacked in previous seasons, a bit of sense. Club's could have Warriors on a Thursday and gladiators on a Friday. We keep hearing about costs, well northern tour type fixtures would certainly save making 3 trips up north and for me far easier to organise as a fan.
  3. Really think there should be 2 this season, to make up for last year. They provide such a valuable service to those easily forgotten.

    2019 Extraliga fixtures?

    It just seems speedway officials make simple things a dam sight more tricky in all speedway countries. The mind still boggles that there is no meeting at Somerset or Swindon the Sunday after a gp. I just think it's poor planning not to think all these extra people in a certain area would nt like to maximise their experience with an additional meeting relatively local the following day. I know when they have a big banger racing meeting at cowdenbeath Scotland in a Saturday that a few promoters chuck event on the Sunday hoping to catch the southern drivers and fans on their way home for an extra crash. Could the temporary tracks not host a test match the lunch time after a gp. Making more use of the facility and giving fans an extra meeting?

    2019 Extraliga fixtures?

    Why is it the turds in charge in Poland slam meetings on after every other SGP, but a 50,000 crowd in their own capital city and they put on nothing.

    KENT 2019

    Looking at politics, top flight football and youth of today, does common sense even exist anymore......

    KENT 2019

    We run every week Mac, something our promotion and fans are very proud of. Even challenge matches raised over 500 people on the gate. And in the summer holidays I am pretty sure we had a press release saying we had four figure crowds each week. Eastbourne over the last 2 seasons have had massive gaps in their fixtures, perhaps the new promoters will try to run weekly. Apart from the Kent based Eastbourne riders and a group of faversham/Canterbury based eagles fans and the odd neutral like city rebel there is very little cross over in fans, such is the strength of rivalry.

    British Leagues Race Nights

    You must try Kent. Probably gonna be Monday night's at 6.30pm or if planning gets overturned in March possibly Saturdays. But outside Belle Vue and Cardiff it is the best stadium in the UK. If you do come I can point you in the direction of decent hotels, and could probably get you access to the centregreen for a heat or 2. And showing a bit of British hospitality I 'll even buy ya a beer mate.
  9. Can I ask what level of Hot Rods he races, ad I know National Hotrod drivers get start money and good prize money. Anything below that is a turn off to the crowds, does nothing to bringing revenue in and is purely a filler formula whilst we repair the bangers or stock cars. So it is totally reasonable to expect to pay to race. (As i did all my career). Speedway however is the sole thing that brings in the cash to speedway, and is far more expensive then running a car. (Except Nat hot rods, Brisca and saloon stox) And there are 14 riders max compared to 200 cars at a race meet.

    Poland Div 1 & 2

    Nothing after Warsaw gp again which is a shame.
  11. A lot of what holds us back as a sport is a lack of the product being put in people's faces online and on tv. I don't know the ins and outs of everything but it's seems this seems to be because GO Speed??? own all the video and broadcast rights. Meaning that we (as a sport) can't go and offer the NL or Championship (For free!) To potential broadcasters, fans are being threatened with stadium bans for uploading heats to the internet. (No I am sorry but if your happy to watch grainy vids online to replace attending meetings and buying dvds, then chances are you was never going to go much anyway.) Offer what is a fantastic raw and simple to follow sport is almost being kept in the shadows due to the stranglehold a middleman company holds over the entire sport in the UK.

    It's about time the BSPA did something to prove that they are viable.......

    Swindon Stadium

    Watching the crashes and cock up DVD, despite reading how close the houses were, I was shocked to see them with my own eyes. Honestly any optimism of a long-term home at the Abbey has all but gone for me. Really hope I am proved wrong.

    Vojens

    What are local taxi rates like, I 've discovered I can get to vojens relatively simply by train for less then 100 quid each way. But then the accommodation I am Looking at range from 8-11 km from vojens. Just wondering being in the relative sticks how easy is it to get around? Thanks in advance.
