    But massively more embarrassing for yourself, questioning the financial judgement of THE best British promoter of the modern era! You couldn't make it up. Again. Hilarious. Again!
  2. No TV deal?

    Like most of the rest of your post, this is completely untrue - I have never said, or even implied, this. This is a multi-faceted argument, which is, I suspect, one of the reasons while you seem unable to "get it". For the purposes of the discussion let's just accept for the moment your point that the racing, or lack of, is not the reason for the decline in crowds to it's present (all-time?) low. Please tell us what the reason(s) for the persistent decline in crowds is, and secondly how you would correct that decline and get crowds back up to a sustainable level.
  3. No TV deal?

    As usual you draw the completely wrong conclusion! Actually I can see how bad it is and want it to be much better. Why would I want it to be crap? If it's so good why are crowds so low? The first step to solving a problem is recognising you have one in the first place...
  4. No TV deal?

    Conclusion: It's (almost) always been crap therefore we don't need to improve it at all. You couldn't make it up....................................................................
  5. No TV deal?

    No, it is not. The Workington promotion have effectively done some market research and proven that point. The answer to the question "What can you do?" is: Improve the racing. They need to draw the correct conclusions from the market research.
  6. No TV deal?

    I would be particularly interested in reading your ideas on how that it is done? Specifically, how can the racing be improved to the maximum extent?

    An honest appraisal. Perhaps you should tell Starman, Orlov and Brum as they don't seem to believe it. ;-)

    There is no comparison between Swindon and Belle Vue! Whenever I have seen Swindon, in person or on TV, it has been a 1 line wonder. The size is fine, the shape and likely the banking, material, etc, etc. are where the problems are.

    Of course you're all wrong saying BV is pretty much ideal and that those are the sort of tracks that should be aspired to. Tsunami, RMC, et al. will be along shortly to tell you so.

    Anybody criticising the new Belle Vue is suffering from one of two things; jealousy or stupidity. It is the best in this country by a mile, and we should create more tracks along similar lines.

    Interesting article about the track work here: http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/sport/16053122.Track_expert_Taylor_goes_to_work_on_Pirates_circuit/ If the work carried out is prone to frost damage why has it been carried out at the coldest time of year? Anybody know how wide Poole is on the bends? Anyhow, Matt Ford is to be applauded for investing in the track, his most important "asset", other promotions should take note.

    Have a moan at them, they did the same with me, rang them up and had a moan and it's now back down to where it was before. My internet isn't erratic but it's way slower than it should be. My experience is that Virgin are better/cheaper than Sky. I've never had BT as my supplier so can't compare to them.
  13. No TV deal?

    Yes I agree.
  14. No TV deal?

    They've kept more meetings alive by doing that but it doesn't improve the racing.
