    Brian Buck is always interesting and informative. Thank you.

    Rider replacement

    Interesting that Mildenhall using R/R today in a challenge. It will give some of their newcomers an extra race, which they probably need. On the other hand, giving the spot to an unattached rider would help that guy. Difficult. No easy answers, but on this occasion I think Fen Tigers are doing the right thing.
  3. Eastbourne clearly doing lots of things right. Increasing attendances is the important metric.
  4. Agree, we saw some great overtakes. How did Richard Lawson do that in heat 13? And, one can understand why the Birmingham team manager was so animated (I use that as a polite term) -- Castagna into air fence when well clear in heat two and the Morris business in heat 14. Also, we had Morris waving madly after coming off in heat 3. This all adds to the entertainment. Eastbourne have not had a crowd like that for many a long day and they handled it well--both in terms of car park and getting into the stadium. Good afternoon's entertainment in my book because there was plenty of drama and plenty to talk about. Ref got it dead right HGould, every timefrom my position in Eastbourne. Good luck at Kent and a safe journey back.

    Derwent Park..update on Town RL forum

    Doubt said gentleman has the time to do such things. Local papers reporters are thin on the ground-sports reports have virtually disappeared. People stopped buying papers – advertising when to Facebook and Google and local journalism has virtually died, as a result. Suggest you ask Google and Facebook to investigate - they have snaffled all the money in publishing. Perhaps they can do some public interest journalism.
  6. Have a safe journey HGould. Looking forward to this afternoon -- this tie looks nicely balanced. Paco Castagna could be the key for you – for us the form of Georgie Wood. It's a perfect day in Sussex by the way HGould. No weather worries at all.
  7. Delighted the first meeting went well and there were no track disasters.

    Derwent Park..update on Town RL forum

    Who would write and send out the press release? Can't think the administrators would be over-bothered. It would seem no-one connected with the promotion would have any standing to issue such a release.
  9. Why should Eastbourne move from what they consider the optimum time to stage a meeting for their business? Been much better for all concerned if Poole/Swindon was staged on Monday: a day when the top division has priority.

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    For any of you Brummies coming south on Good Friday, there is a note on Eastbourne speedway site which says they may experience 4G/3G problems with credit/debit card readers so best to bring cash as a back-up. Hope no-one minds but I have copied this from the Eastbourne website as it does seem important: Please be advised that we encountered problems with our Card Reader machines at the last meeting linked to 4G problems in the area that are completely outside of our control. We are waiting for a hard-wire solution, but would advise all supporters that it may be prudent to have a cash payment option in case of further problems. Our equipment works perfectly and is state-of-the-art, but when 3G/4G signals drop out due to transmitter issues, and are exacerbated by our remote location, we have absolutely no control or ability to fix, and do not wish to upset anyone who only has a card payment option in that eventuality.

    You are spot on. Championship has priority on a Friday, no ifs or buts. Seen on the Eastbourne website that they have listed James and Zach as riding for the Brummies.

    Thank you for this information.

    Yes, he has. He might decide speedway is just not for him.

    Awkward when there are so many CL matches at weekends.
