    Six man teams and 36 point limit by any chance?
  2. Grigory Laguta can be added to that as he will return at the beginning of May.
  3. No matter how this match finally pans out, you have to give credit to Rybnik who are certainly making a fight of it. Very entertaining so far.
  4. Looks like they did tonight. Well done to the Comets.
  5. Thanks R&R Usually I simply watch on my Polish satellite system on TV but tonight I will be away from home and am going to be on my phone. Are these links safe in your opinion and which might be the best to use? Many thanks !
  6. After 4 heats, more than half of Rybnik's advantage is gone! They have their work cut out here to hang on....
  7. If Rybnik's reserve, Giera, is out injured, can the other reserve, Chmiel, take his rides?
  8. I can't see it continuing to be honest. There is far, far too much dirt on that track.
  9. I can't for the life of me understand why this place still gets a GP. It's awful, even when it's dry. This is pathetic.
  10. Tomorrow's Extraliga final at Leszno is off, due to the very poor forecast. Rescheduled for next Saturday, the 29th, at 7.15pm Polish time, with a reserve date of Sunday 30th at the same time. https://m.sportowefakty.wp.pl/zuzel/778573/wielki-final-pge-ekstraligi-w-lesznie-przelozony-znamy-nowy-termin-meczu
  11. I'm like you, I go to watch racing and not processions. But I disagree re the track in the first 10 heats. Bandits wanted to race, Monarchs seemed less keen to. We saw a sublime pass by Jakobsen on Wells in heat 6 which proved it was perfectly raceable for those who wished to race. The reasons the heats before were one sided was due to the pathetic gating of the home team. I would say last night's track was definitely more raceable than last Friday's.
  12. Full credit to the Bandits who were prepared to attack the track from the start. It was much slicker than the past few weeks and this seemed to catch out the home side completely. Despite it being very wet initially, we had two very good races, heat 6 when Jacobsen performed a sublime outside pass on Wells to streak away to win, and heat 13 was quite superb, with the same 2 riders passing and repassing. That was two more good races than we had a week ago. It's funny to think that last week on a super grippy track, Arena were accused of not trying, yet tonight on a slick trick, it was the track to blame rather than the Monarchs riders. Put simply, one team wanted the win much more than the other.
  13. Tracks are always faster when they are prepared grippily. That's basic science my friend. But they have to be rideable by all. I guess we all have our own opinions on this, but we are all speedway fans who want our own team to win. The question we all have to answer though is this: Do we want to see our team win on 1) a track that is fair to all, that produces entertaining and close racing or 2) a track that allows only the home riders to know how to race on it, producing processional, strung out races and no entertainment ?? If you answer anything other than the first answer, then I think you are part and parcel of the problem of the way speedway is going down the tubes. Please, think about it...
