  1. Progress of sorts, providing it doesn't die the death mid-season. Next thing, they need to change the rules on minimum track sizes/widths for any/all new tracks. No more small, narrow rubbish.

    Danny Ayres RIP

    An amazing rider/entertainer. His race last year in the British Final with Chris Harris will live long in my memory. R.I.P. Danny. A hero on a Speedway bike.

    Notoriously Dirty Riders

    If I recall correctly it was at Hull, possibly coming out of the second bend on to the back straight, ran out of space on the outside (Hull was very narrow?) and his arm was very badly smashed. Happy to be corrected, all from what I recall hearing/reading at the time, I didn't actually see it.

    Notoriously Dirty Riders

    Not sure if it got answered but it was Sean Wilson who had Staechmann off and ended his career. Quite surprised to Pickering mentioned as dirty as I didn't pick up on it at the time and he never seemed to be overly forceful to me. He was a 1 line rider though, out at the fence, so probably took a few out there with him. There's world of difference between taking someone to the fence and putting someone through it though. I get the impression that modern era riders think they have a divine right to pass someone and if they get taken to the fence it's dirty riding.

    Nicki P

    I recall some years ago that it was stated in the Speedway Star that NP was the only rider that would draw in extra fans on the gate, having a much greater effect than Woffinden who, it was said, would make little difference. Well done Sheffield!

    TV new deal?

    if they really are opening it up to a wider audience then somebody had better start improving the tracks, and fast! Come and watch this boring, processional racing on tracks that are badly shaped, too narrow and poorly prepared. Let's hope the money is properly invested this time - in making genuinely decent speedway tracks up and down the country.
  7. If they sort out more banking I suspect it will make it a very good track, even when conditions have to be slicker like tonight.
  8. Looks like they've made a fairly decent job of the new track. Not much of a wide line, is that normal or because it was slicker then usual? Possibly better with more banking??
  9. You can do better than that surely..? Come on, formulate an argument and prove to me I'm wrong......................................................................................
  10. You're nailing it! There's not many on here who actually understand...
  11. Touched a nerve have I? Very good. It's quite obvious you know Ipswich is sub standard in the same that S-Brum knows that Wolves is sub standard. (He posted elsewhere on this thread.) Reality check time for you, Brum and anyone else on here that agrees with you: Saturday night Speedway on the tele, amazing opportunity, can't recall the last time we had British "League" Speedway on TV on Saturday night and what do we get? For the most part, 30 yard races and top class (for this country) riders who can't get around it! An utter joke. Wake up and see the reality people. I hope Ipswich go on to win the final, it will show even more what a joke the sport is in this country.
  12. I'll do well to be more boring than this pathetic excuse for speedway racing... I'll try harder!
  13. You should be a promoter with an attitude like that. Exactly the way to kill the sport even faster. Open your eyes and see what's really happening. I've just got to heat 8, something actually resembling a proper race.
  14. Practically dead you mean..? Largely down to tracks like this.
  15. Holder couldn't even broadside it! Too deep for circuit of that size. Poole's rough but this is a worse racing circuit.
  16. The weather doesn't affect the size and shape. Decent riders can't get around it, only time there's passing is when someone makes a mistake. #wolves-esque
  17. Dire track Foxhall Heath. And people wonder why the sport's in the state it is..!

    Poole v Swindon. Prem. 19/8/19

    Decent meeting that for the neutral. Close racing, some team riding, fair amount of passing. Better than you tend to get at most tracks in this country (NSS apart) and certainly better than that rubbish last Monday.

    Wolves v Peterborough 12/08/19

    The World Champ states he'd struggle to get around it..! #priceless

    Wolves v Peterborough 12/08/19

    How many of those passes down to the rider in front making a mistake/being caught out? #tricktrack

    Wolves v Peterborough 12/08/19

    It was the same tricktrack when Sky were there. The only bias is yours, I won't defend Stoke when it's bad, you're too blinkered to see Wolves for what it is.

    Wolves v Peterborough 12/08/19

    Ditto: Sorry Brum but LOOMER Road is a better track than Monmore. It’s had its issues granted, but at the moment it’s the best it’s been for a long time and far better racing than watching riders wobble around Monmore.

    Wolves v Peterborough 12/08/19

    I'd have a bit more respect if you didn't continually defend an horrendously shaped trick-track, trying to make out it's a decent racing circuit, where passing usually occurs because someone got caught out.

    British Champ slides off first bend but there's nowt wrong with the track............ #tricktrack
