    Well said Cat. I'm sure you will be purring with delight when you see how exciting speedway is going to be at Eastbourne this year. Everything points in the right direction. You will be coming to the right place to enjoy speedway again.

    King's Lynn is a trick track for many riders because it is too far round and some get lost going round the 3rd/4th bend. You just have to accept they are all different and riders need a huge range of skills to do well on all of them. Top riders don't recognise the phrase trick tracks. They are all there to be ridden

    More a technical track than a trick track. Best riders in the world have come to Eastbourne and blown the Eagles away. I'm sure in the NL there will plenty who have the skills to weigh up what's needed.

    Islander15 - why don't you just stick in the thread about your own team?

    You are right Alex. Others are following Eastbourne which said right from the start it would be racesuits as usual for the Eagles team. The Eastbourne ITFirst Eagles are raising the bar in the National League which has to be good for British speedway as a whole. I''m delighted that others clubs are following suit!

    You've been Eagled. Of course Eastbourne fans know how averages work.

    But no business people on a Saturday. Weekdays is the only day a speedway club could possibly hope to have a successful networking event. The value of a Friday lunchtime in commercial terms in incalculable.

    Well that was some press and practice say. IT First are the sponsors - a company closely associated with Championship football team, Brighton and Hove Albion. Lots of corporate people milling around. Eastbourne's new team were super too. So easy to talk to. Smiles. They seem to be bonding really well. Gives me huge hope for the 2015 season. Beginning to dawn on me that the NL is the place to be in 2015. It is going to be a blast at Arlington and elsewhere.

    Today's the day and I am escaping the desk and heading to Eastbourne to see some speedway action. At least it is not raining but no sun!

    All will be revealed around lunchtime tomorrow. Pretty certain you are wrong with UKIP, although it would be novel. Feel sure the management has talked about a company involved.

    Good for you for keeping it under the cat's hat. That's the responsible thing for fans to do. Anyone who does know should stay quiet until the official announcement. We all know it is hard getting sponsors and Eastbourne appear to have done well, if Catinthehat is right.

    Have to say Mike, it feels like that to me. I think the NL will be competitive, lots of young riders who can link with the supporters. NL is the place to be

    Eastbourne all over social media like a rash this week. Grabbing every opportunity to get publicity; can;'t blame them with the season starting soon.

    I think Eastbourne were wise not to announce BWD until he was through the arrival doors and in Britain. Those with long memories will remember the disappointment of Gizatullin being refused a visa and having to make a last-minute change. Always best to have some excitement in the papers just before you go racing.

    Don't think it was that much of a surprise Alan but jolly good signing, nonetheless.

    Georgie Wood looks a natural round Arlington, according to my friend who has seen him. Exciting times just around the corner in Sussex. Can't wait for it to start. Just have to work out how to "duck out of work" on Friday and look like a VIP

    2015 El Predictions

    My prediction is that Eastbourne will finish bottom of the Elite League. that's what everyone always predicts. so why change now

    Rosco Brit Picks

    Totally makes sense. Should be competitive; give the Panthers a good run and the younger Brits a useful meeting

    Kings Lynn 2015

    It is Press Day. The Press are working. They do not want to be crowded by well-meaning fans trying to get shots. A good set of pictures and background footage has to last a season. It is not a day for the fans as you suggest - the name is on the "tin" and should do that job.

    I think you are right. Johnson has said far too much for his own good about Eastbourne and others on social media. I can well understand him being worked up about it all but he went too far as far as Eastbourne was concerned. He has quietened down now but you cannot unsay what has been said.

    I have a feeling the rules don't allow cross-league events as you suggest. Maybe Bjarne could come and present the trophy to the winner.

    2015 El Predictions

    If Leicester can get a good third heatleader, I fancy the Eagles-in-exile to make the play offs.

    Eastbourne 2015

    Great news from Connor. Well done. Dead right on keeping the continuity going. Really important. that was the big problem with the EL - you always had to check when the next meeting was. Be good to see the Eagles pitching in against each other.
