    SGP Vojens 2021

    I understand not doing it at double headers, but why no qualifying this year? Presumably they still practice on a Friday.

    Eastbourne 2020

    With over a 1000 in there tonight for a entry level type Banger meeting, I don't think you need worry about that. I suggest the stadium is completely safe, and I am equally positive that speedway will be at Arlington in 2022 under new management.
  3. Very enjoyable night, recommend the trip up to any visiting fans.
  4. Just thought I d share what I posted on Facebook this morning about last night. Massive shout out to the Edinburgh Monachs, staff, fans and management. Never has a speedway club been so welcoming, with everyone thanking us for coming, doing anything they can to make us welcome. Stadium owner insisting we stay until close and filling us up with homemade cake. locals plying us with beer, and then doing running races around the track with thier young fans at 11pm.... And even after the taxi never came back to collect me and Kieran, the guy locking up the stadium took pity on us and drove us to the hotel. If carlsberg did speedway. ..... These guys are right up their with the IOW Warriors Way.

    Eastbourne 2020

    I d say although speedway is looking a big doubt to finish the season. The long term future of the stadium must be pretty safe. Bangers are still putting 4 figure crowds in on a weekly basis. My best guess would be that Eastbourne will come to the tapes in 2022 but under new management.
  6. That's simply not the case, the riders do TV interviews every meeting, and it usually features in the Friday evening news on South East ITV Station Meridian tonight. Also bbc radio Kent mention it quite often. And there is also a close tie up with sittingbournes own radio station Len has also every year produced thousands of posters and fliers, and supplied them to fans to distribute in thier own local areas, this scheme is known as fans force. Then there is the carnival scene, where the club has a float representing speedway in each town. Also the Kent messenger group (countywide), and the more locally sittingbourne rags, all fearure weekly reports and previews too. I think we can all agree the king of promotion are the Wightlink Warriors, and them seemingly never stop promoting thier club. Even they found island residents at recent meetings gave stumbled across the racing whilst claiming they never knew speedway existed on the Island. What that tells me is even with a consistently high energy promotional effort, people will always slip through the net. Can most clubs do more? Certainly, but actually when you scratch under the surface there are plenty of clubs doing a hell of a lot of work out their to bring more people in.

    May I recommend the upper tier in the main stand, towards the first bend end offers one of the Best views in the stadium.

    Kent v Eastbourne 03/08/21

    The official line was a crisis of confidence after a couple of crashes. The suspicion is being one meeting from a 7-8 point average was possible a bigger factor?
  9. Evidently Dan did get 2 rides, just not mentioned on the live updates.
  10. When your meeting is essentially over, I don't see why you wouldn't give all 5 riders a race. Rather then sending someone all that way to watch. Even more so given we are in a pandemic.
  11. You make a fair point sir. Yeah I am surprised also with various travel restrictions in different territories that speedway still has international events. Guess again your right, we should just be thankfully any meetings atm. A very talented British team indeed and one with a few seasons left at u23 level. The more trips to Europe these lads get the better.
  12. Next year I hope to get to a couple of German tracks over a weekend, I may come to you for advice on where is accessible via train relatively easily. (I don't drive and don't like to fly) so I am quite accustomed to European trains and coaches.

    Don't think I ve seen that before. Dan Spiller who as we all know has joint nationality, has half a gb flag and half a German flag behind his image. Quite like that tbf.
  14. Iris, what happening with the track that had to have sound tests etc recently, so it could reopen? Is that still moving forward?
  15. Why does it need to be in Germany,?plenty of tracks that aren't in a field in the middle of the know where, all across Europe.
