    cant see any promotion risk charging " £20 a head" for league racing bob,would be a lot of resistance to that price amongst fans

    Who are the Rising Stars?

    wish all young riders success but all being labelled a rising star isnt going to help them,obviously theyre not "stars" a really silly name

    clarke osborne has kept terry russell in the dark all along matt,i doubt even the senior managers at stadia uk know any details,i believe matt ford has at times found it impossible to even make contact with osborne let alone get any information from him.There may be other reasons as well but i believe the total and continous frustration and despair with the stadium situation has contributed to terry russels decision.

    i think theres a realistic chance of speedway this yr jenga, Im taking a punt that a government which has pretty much got everything wrong or at best timed most things badly, must eventually get lucky and get something right ! that something being the vacc rollout,heres hoping.The only things that would dampen my optimism would be matt hancock saying he was in control and confident or bojo saying we are the best in the world at vaccinating !!!

    MORE POLISH LEAGUE INTERFERENCE

    i presume the polish club is fronting all the costs involved ?

    MORE POLISH LEAGUE INTERFERENCE

    i think we should take the view that if poland stops their young riders racing in gb then thats their loss,also if average british riders think they can succeed in poland they are being naive and misguided.British speedway can indeed prosper without "top stars" as an example british superbikes is a very successful and profitable competition even though everyone knows the top riders are in moto gp,moto2 or wsb,also british riders would know theyd have no chance of moving up until they were at least top 3 in bsb .If a truly talented british speedway rider emerges theres still a route to the top through the gp qualifiers,finish top6 in gps then you can demand the mega bucks from the poles.

    MORE POLISH LEAGUE INTERFERENCE

    i would advice anyone that before signing an "excursive" contract they first find out what it is lol

    what they will get out of the stadium ray is their "cut" out of the development of the stadium car park,probably as r&rsays they will then be gone,hopefully the stadium itself(not available for development) will by then be viable and someone will jump in

    the greyhound track cant be changed into a stocks track skids unless the cars went around in single file! any stock car track at the stadium (if you could get the fixtures) would have to incorporate the dog track and speedway track,needs an established stocks promoter to take it on and finance it,they of course would need a decent lease from stadia uk.i know there can be problems with speedway and stocks working together, but personally id be very happy with stocks and speedway at the stadium,and it should make it viable for the landlords

    Poole Pirates 2020

    actually skids i thought the statement from mr osborne was as good a news that poole speedway could have hoped for (ie"continue the other businesses") I think its pretty clear they intend to fullfill the legal obligations of their lease,so consequently no room for matts "consortium" but that wouldnt be necessary if the stadium is available for speedway anyway.An interesting point (initially raised by ts as r&r ) is what are these "alternative activities" ??

    Plymouth speedway

    such a shame that what appears to be such a progressive and innovative promotion cant receive the full rewards for their efforts because of the dam virus(hope other promotions pick up a few tips!)
  24. poole keith

    Poole Pirates 2020

    like i said skids nobody knows whats happening to the stadium,though i actually heard this afternoon from someone who was privy to tuesdays meeting held by stadia uk that they are happy to continue paying the rent to the council due under the lease,and will retain car park staff,in present climate council will probably be content with that.also skids like ive said before both partys want partial development of the site but neither can do it on their own but they(stadia uk and council) can certainly do it if they work together,so there, job done,simples.ps nobody has ever said "every greyhound/stadium operator is shutting up shop"

    Poole Pirates 2020

    thats the problem,matt ford has said if his "consortium" could take over they would look to hold other events at the stadium but not dogs but didnt say what they might be,cant believe stadia uk would be interested in running anything to be honest,probably now focusing on partial development of the car park! The only thing i can think of is stock car/bangers but would you get the official fixtures with matchams just up the rd? Do believe council faviour the return of poole town but of course they dont have to finance the move and theres no money to be made in non league football.To sum up dont think anyone knows whats happening, all us fans can do is hope for the best
