    FREESPORTS HD

    UPDATE April 2018: FreeSports had told users on social media that it now expects FreeSports HD to go live in June 2018.
  2. Well it must be the racing at Rye House thats worth £18 because it certainly isnt the facilities provided for the fans that are

    Also if you use R/R and one of your other riders gets injured at the start of the meeting you could be down to 5 as what happened at Ipswich the other night.

    Wolverhampton v Rye House 16/4/18

    We made the trip up from Rye in the hope of a good close meeting and perhaps coming away with a point - what a waste of time. A shambles of a Rye team and as for heat 15 being exciting, well from a Wolves point of view it was from a Rye point of view what a depressing end to the night to see your rider going from first to last but he did get one point - probably because only 3 riders finished the race. As for the programme £2.50 for what was a Wolves v Belle Vue meeting with a Rye House insert, if I'd known that before purchase I could have saved my cash and perhaps donated it to the so called improvements being made to Rye Stadium.
  5. Anyone tell me what time the gates open please and also what's the parking like.

    Swindon v Leicester 12.04.18

    I repeat - " I think it's time to stop apportioning blame, riders got injured, no one wants to see that. What we should be doing is wishing the injured riders a speedy recovery and hope this awful weather that is causing havoc to the sport we love improves so that riders, promoters and referees don't get put in the no win situation they were in last night." Isn't it about time you stopped this silly little wind-up game your trying to play on this forum with others who are unfortunately taking the bait but I can understand why they are.

    Swindon v Leicester 12.04.18

    I think it's time to stop apportioning blame, riders got injured, no one wants to see that. Alan Rossiter has put out a statement on the Swindon website and apparently riders were offered the chance to try out the track by the Clerk of the Course but no one took up the offer. What we should be doing is wishing the injured riders a speedy recovery and hope this awful weather that is causing havoc to the sport we love improves so that riders, promoters and referees don't get put in the no win situation they were in last night.

    Out of interest who was the referee tonight.
  9. My thoughts on stadium. PR should start at the beginning ie car park which in my opinion is good enough to use as a motocross track first sight of it is enough to put any nubies off. If you get past that although there are alterations inside stadium from when Len was there I wouldn't call them improvements. From where I sat in the stand on the home straight the view of the 2nd bend was slightly obscured and the mist and rain last night made matters worse. If you have mobility problems and usually watch from near the fence on the flat I think you may have trouble seeing the riders going down the back straight (especially if you have to sit in a chair/wheelchair). The seating that was under the referees box last year has been rebuilt with scaffolding and wooden steps which are definitely not user friendly for people with mobility problems. The ref is now in a porta cabin and hopefully can see all the track. Oh well perhaps thing's will look better when the weather improves, I will go again but am not impressed with "improvements" hopefully the team can make up for that.
  10. Track looks ok hopefully we won't get any rain. Piles of mud on centre green bit of an eye sore as long as it doesn't interfere with the speedway I suppose we will have to live with it but we've moved from our usual seats already.
  11. In the car park, gates not open yet. Weather's damp, cold and a bit misty. Already a queue to go in. A boat in the car park would be preferable to a car hope the tracks in better condition.

    Really hope the weather holds up for you and the team think us fans all have everything crossed

    Rye House 2018

    I see Kings Lynn have already cancelled tomorrows meeting and looking at the weather forecast I reckon Rye v Leicester is looking doubtful as well. I know Steve Jenson tries hard to get the meetings on but perhaps its better to make an early decision to cancel than to start the meeting and have to stop at heat 10 which most fans hate as scores can change dramatically in the last 5 heats. All I want is for this bl??dy rain to stop so the speedway season can actually get started.

    I mentioned that in a previous post i made "still fail to see how the BSPA will be able to pass the track/stadium especially after reading rules 9.2.4 and 9.2.5.1". I presume a licence been granted or surely we would have heard something by now but as the rules basically say "essential equipment should be as near to the middle of the centre green as possible" I can't see how the paramedics can be in the middle now and I would say their equipment is definitely essential as the meeting can't start unless they are in attendance.

    He's supposed to be at Rye House on Wednesday night - will he be able to be in Poland as well or will Rye House need a replacement?
