    Of course, it is repeating PR. The children in newsrooms are very good at copy and paste....rather than doing real reporting. You might also ask how many people view the Echo these days.

    Poole Pirates 2020

    Your local coverage is waning as the Echo cuts back and then cuts back again on editorial staff. Speedway is now very much a secondary duty for someone rather than a priority.

    Fully understand you are a cheerleader for Poole, but this is poor PR. Build stuff up by all means, but this is a huge let down. Tease people but don't raise expectations.

    You are right. It is very complicated. Mark Loram won the world title as a Brit - he was born in Malta. Many UK families work abroad but their children are still Brits.

    BSPA-appointed doctor is what is needed.

    Wouldn't mind a 6-race 2nd half of sidecars from time to time. Think they race at Arlington before but probably too small a track in reality

    That will make Rob Ledwith look like a young man, then.

    NDL tracks need to be on the slick side because of the relative inexperience of those competing. CL riders can handle less slick tracks but doubt there are many, if any, who could race on old-fashioned 'deep' on the modern bikes.

    Proctor will be the key.

    We live in hope, not expectation. In the early days of KL Speedway, the club was one of a large number who were put there as cannon fodder for the big teams...we were never allowed to get too good.

    Hartel not such a secret or surprise, after all. I know very little about him but he's a Star now so that means he has my support. Being good round big tracks doesn't automatically make you poor round the technical ones. AT NDL level, Jake Knight and Josh Bailey cracked Arlington and at CL level, Lewi Kerr has done the same.

    Reading blocked from Entering NDL

    Was always pleased to see the Racers at Eastbourne in your SDL guise. Would welcome Reading having their own track...be good for southern/SE clubs if we could have another 'southerner' in the CL.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    No. Good view from main grandstand. NDL riders sometimes found it tricky but CL riders should boss this place.

    What you would call a safe pair of hands. And a jolly nice bloke he is too.
