    Odds for 2018 GP champion

    Can anyone tell me if there will be anywhere within the stadium at Cardiff where I can place a bet

    Rye House 2018

    Couple of articles in Speedway Star July 14th edition re Rye House one of them being a full page from Steve Jenson. I hope speedway does continue at Rye but I'll only be going if it's a team riding in one of the leagues, preferably Championship.

    My understanding is Len Silver had a 99 year lease which he then sold on to BMR but the actual freehold of the land is owned by Lea Valley Park so they would have the final say in any change of use. As another poster said the stadium has always been designated for motorsports so personally I hope that continues and Rye Speedway returns but having said that with the Local Councils and the Government passing plans for housing/flats on every spare bit grass they can get their hands on who knows what the future holds.

    Article from Neil Middleditch in Bournemouth Daily Echo re Rye House. I tend to agree with him about Motorcross mud on the centre green and while I appreciate Warren Scott is a business man I can't help wondering how much the mud pile cost and is that making him a profit as I haven't seen any events advertised for it yet and as a Speedway fan it certainly spoilt my views of the racing. http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/sport/16345710.middleditch-saddened-by-rye-house-demise/

    Perhaps Bomber should have a word with Scott Nicholls solicitors re being deprived of making a living !

    Obviously the racing won't be league but whatever form it takes us fans need to try to get behind Rye House and try to help them to take the sport forward

    As I understand it BMR/Warren Scott is the promoter and bought the lease off Len Silver Steve Jenson is named as co promoter. Depending on how finances are set up it could be that a Bank may be owed money therefore they could take over the assets ie the leasehold. Goodness knows how a this saga is going to end up.

    Wonder what will happen to the KTM dealership that's supposedly opened/opening within the stadium?

    Agreed. Let's just hope someone has the sense to secure the stadium and that it doesn't end up in the same state as Brandon.

    Not the news we wanted we just have to now hope a way is found for Rye to come back next year with racing on Saturday nights in the Championship.

    The fish and chips are no longer a selling point. As for the stadium being dilapidated yes it does need major improvement to bring it into the 21st century but so do many other speedway stadiums. What Rye does have (or maybe did) is loyal fans who want to see speedway at Rye and elsewhere survive. To say just "put it out of its misery" is an insult to all of us who loyally support the team and speedway (even though we do have our moans and groans along the way).

    Well I think the BSPA all live in fantasy land anyway. If that idea was even being considered it has to be the daftest one they've come up with yet. I think every supporter in the country knows that won't work. If it's considered for next year it would be a good idea.

    That crossed my mind a while ago so I googled Motorcross tracks Herts/Essex, loads of tracks listed but no Rye House which is a bit silly if you want to make a profit from something. Regards kart track I believe the same promotion did own it but I don't know if they still do.
