    Plymouth Gladiators 2022

    Are there any updates on Edward Kennett, the last thing I remember reading was something along the lines of "he would be seeing Doctors/hospital etc and Plymouth would should know more by the end of the week" and I remember reading that, i think on the Plymouth website, weeks and weeks ago.

    Ipswich v Wolves 26th May

    Please can anyone tell me if tickets are the same price at the gate as they are online, haven't been to Foxhall for over 4 years but if the weather stays OK am thinking of going tonight.
  3. Had a lovely afternoon chatting to people and seeing old riders, loved Reg Luckhursts short but sweet sing song, perhaps we should have all joined in. The model of Custom House Stadium was excellent but it wasn't until I got home and looked closely at the photos I had taken of it ( I was busy trying to pinpoint exactly where I stood) that I realised that the names of those who lost their lives at Lokeren were shown at the starting tapes, lovely touch to a great piece of work. We'll done to the organisers of the event can we have a few more similar events please especially when the sun is shining.
  4. What an excellent watch. It would be good if Discovery+ showed this as part of their speedway coverage and maybe also on the big screen at Cardiff during the racing interval or before the meeting starts.

    Nigel Pearson RIP

    And when he was alive he had the right of reply. When someone's died people should just pay their respects or say nothing at all, the only people who might be reading negative comments are his family who are left behind and I just hope if they are reading this forum they ignore the ignorant posts and focus on the overwhelming ones from people who realise he will be missed and also a great loss to Speedway.

    Kent 2022

    OMG, as long as its not blaring out who would it disturb the tracks in the middle of nowhere. Someone parked in the field had their car radio on which we could hear occasionally, what is it with these planning departments it's obvious they all hate speedway and people enjoying a day out. Oh well next time we visit I'll take my ipod.

    Kent 2022

    Our first time at Iwade found the track with the help of satnav. We sat on first bend, pa system was fine there, could have done with some background music, but not as deafening as it used to be at Eastbourne. Delays between races need to be sorted. It's a new venture so hopefully as weeks go on things will improve as we definitely need some speedway south of the river as the only other two tracks in the South are Poole and Plymouth much too far for us to travel. Didn't try the food outlet so can't comment on that but toilet facilities definitely need improvement which hopefully will also happen in time.

    Such awful news, Nigel will be a massive loss to speedway but most of all a massive loss to his family R.I.P

    Eastbourne Speedway

    We live 90 minutes drive, on a good day, from Eastbourne. We managed to get to nearly all their Championship home matches, either driving there and back and on many occasions making a weekend of it. If Eastbourne run only in the NDL I'm afraid we would only be very occasional visitors, it has to be at least Championship to make the long journey worthwhile for us. Hoping they are back next year as really missing our speedway already and it's only April.
