    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Hi Phillip. Just to say for the second week I have been reading my Star whilst eating my breakfast. Thanks , I hope the new style of delivery service continues and that the post is kicked into touch. The past history about the various makes of machines I found very interesting. I totally agree with the above post. Regards from a very satisfied reader.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    As I said in a previous post IT is not the fault of Speedway Star. I complain to the Royal Mail via there complaint syatem every time my mag does not arrive on a Thursday which they have to reply too. Now if everyone whose mag is late does this every time Im sure that the Royal Mail would soon get a message that a lot of people are not happy with the service and you never know may be the P.O. Regulator my see and get involved.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Mine arrived today (25-11-2020 ) it traveled by donky express as the pony express was made redundant in the last R M cuts. I wonder if I will get the next issue on Thuesday???

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Every time that my star is delivered later than Friday lunch time I send a complant in to the R M . I bet if we all do this they MAY get the message that we are not at all happy with the service that they are providing . I feel very sorry for Philip and his staff who are trying to keep us up to date with excelent articals, storis of the past etc BUT are let down by the R. M .who are not providing the service which they are paying for. I live in hope that sometime in the future all the complaints that the R.M. receive and the finds that they have paid MAY change things. Again to Phill thanks for an excelent mag in these hard times and we all know that late mags is out of your control.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    I bet you would feel different if it was your business and you are paying for a service that you are not getting. This has been a problem with magazines and the post well before the Pandemic situation, so please dont sound like a politician and blame the virus.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Hang the flags out The Royal Mail Snail arrived with my Speedway Star this morning !! After talking to the posti he told me a couple of interesting things. 1: He said that magazines are now a low priority and could be held back if there was a lot of other mail 2; The fact that the Star was in a clear packet made it easy to spot, even though it has a first class stamp it could be held back. 3: He also said that magazines in brown envelopes ( even known as mags ) would not be held back. It makes you wonder what the point of paying for first class mail

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Thanks for the offer BUT I can only hope that by Friday I will have the 12th and the 19th copies, do you know if other publications have the same problem ?

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Its now 18-30 Monday 14th and my Speedway Star must be traveling by SNAIL Mail.. SO much for a first class postal service that is supposed to deliver first class post the next day. Is it possible for the magazine staff complain to the G P O about this very poor service that they are paying for??
  10. Today ( 07-04-2020 ) I received a copy of the above magazine which I enjoyed reading BUT in 2004 the vikings won the triple with a photo in the middle page of the mag. The caption for the photo names a Garry Astras . I can never remember a rider of that name ever riding for the Vikings. A bad mistake when the photo is clearly Garry Stead a Vikings favorite. If you use team photos at least get the riders names correct !!!
  11. It would be too sensible to have the 4s in May, at Somerset in July and CLRC in September but our sport promoters seem to think that they know best and to h---l with the supporters who pay to keep the sport going. If this is there attitude I can see another Workington happening in the very near future.Why -o-why wont the promoters use the old saying "if it is not broke why try to fix it", BUT they know best!!!!

    Leicester Lions 2020

    A great event BUT why hold it at a track that is known for its lack of parking problems. I bet if anyone gets a parking ticket from the shopping center car park due to an over run meeting Leicester Speedway will not pay it. Come- on MR Godfrey get a grip and get this meeting to a track that has better parking !!!

    Predictions thread

    After reading all the various predictions that have been posted I would like to draw your attention to a score from last year when Glasgow suffered the heaviest defeat at home to Scunthorpe ( Scuni won 53 to 37 ) At the start of the 2019 season no one would have predict a home loss like this, so its all ifs and buts again for 2020. All i want to see is some good racing,all riders leaving meetings in the same transport they arrive in and that Scuni make the play offs and the go on to be the league champions AGAIN.

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2020

    Sorry but your crystal ball must have got foggy, still 6 out of 7 aint bad. I personally like the change, Tero instead of Ryan, and wish all 3 of the riders who are not in the team a successful 2020 session with who ever they sign for.

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2020

    So its now 3 correct|| will you be able to make it 4? or even all 7, I hope you will.

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2020

    Well 2 correct up to now, will it be 3 after the next team member is announced ?
  17. Now its nearly the end of the 2019 speedway season and fans will be voting on their favorite team rider,for a change how about selecting "and in your own opinion" who has been the most inconsistent Referee you have seen at a speedway meting this season giving name and reason why. Then MAYBE next season things will be "better" with then and the standard May improve as in my opinion it needs to!!.
  18. Its now 20: 30 hrs Saturday and after looking on the Scunthorpe Speedways web site there is no mention of tomorrows meeting at Newcastle. Looking at the Newcastles web site there is a list of presumed riders. WHY dosent Rob and co keep the Scunthorpe supporters up to date with our team news and away meeting details so we can at least make arrangements to travel to away meetings and Not have to wait untill the last minute??
  19. I think that the "ref" had left both his white stick and dog in his car in the car park, I hope that Rob puts in a very heavily worded report on all his shocking decisions and that the ref gets a quick appointment at his local spec-savers!!!
  20. As far as I know its the same this time, worked out on a points average so both the 3 and 4 team groups have the same chance of getting the fourth team place in the semis.

    2nd leg play off final

    Sorry I have got the wrong site, my mistake it should have been on Scunthorps page . Have booked an appointment at speck savers.

    2nd leg play off final

    RE Danny Phillips. The 2018 speedway season is over and done with. What has been said about him is now consigned to the history books. It is about time that all the debates about him are finished. IF Danny wants to ride next year he should be able to do so without any reference to this years scores etc. so just leave the lad to decide What He Wants To Do

    Ben Fund

    All nice to know Al But it is time that the group 3 and 4 riders are all named, I bet that these riders are first in the queue for a hand out. If you don't contribute you should not receive !!
  25. archie21

    Ben Fund

    I totally agree with naming the riders who have turned down to ride especially if they have had a donation from the fund or should they themselves be required to make a sizeable donation back to the fund if they turn down the invitation for no valid reason.
