  1. Yes I agree, not looking to score points and the more decent races the better. I've not seen it again on fb do you have a link or where I can view it please?
  2. Just seen Ht 11 from the Wolves vs. Leicester match on the SGB site. They are saying how exciting it was. If they want exciting then should put Ht 11 from last night with Fricke, Lambert and E. Riss. Outstanding!

    Bob Dugard RIP

    Loved watching him ride in the late 60s. Never beaten always a trier. Sadly missed.
  4. I'd imagine the state of some of the tracks is why several riders do not want to ride here for a whole season.
  5. Not sure about that, I feel that the riders are becoming more vocal on the subject now and with good reason.
  6. Wonderful job done by the Facenna brothers to renovate the old stadium and a very good presentation yesterday but I felt that the track was too narrow and rather bumpy to encourage good, close racing. A real shame as the crowd were enthusiastic and willing the Brits to succeed. I must admit that after three years of watching racing at the NSS each week, it highlights the problems we have with many of our tracks and their preparation. I do, however, applaud the efforts to put such a meeting on and will support future such events. The club and their fans were first class.
  7. Sharpen Rake, thanks for the information, appreciate it
  8. Coming up for this one. Not been to Glasgow for years and certainly not since the alterations. Can anyone tell me what the parking situation is? There used to be a small car park next to a social club but don't recall it being big enough for the expected crowd. Appreciate any information, thanks

    more investment for NSS

    Suggest looking at what Adrian Smith said in the after-race news conference last night. It's on FB

    Belle Vue v Brummies Fri 22nd June

    Think Flint is pretty special. I remember late last season him doing after-meeting practice for the first time on a 500, or at least that's what Haley Bromley announced. He looked quick and assured. I was convinced that he was going to be a Colts reserve this year but, obviously, can't win them all. On another tack, I'm not sure Tom Perry is the answer to the number 1 spot.

    Belle Vue 2018

    Probably the reason we don't use Auty to guest at number 3.
  12. Agree, the way he worked the track to pass in Ht 6 was a sure sign of his class. Reminded me of Collins.

    Potters v Colts - 5/5/18

    Thanks Fubar. never understood why Shuttleworth chose to go to Stoke rather than stay wit the Colts. But, the way young Lawlor is going we are so much better off.

    Potters v Colts - 5/5/18

    Fubar, if you don't mind a word on how Joe Lawlor went last night, how many rides did he take to score his 12. Also, surprised that Rob Shuttleworth only scored 2, he's better than that surely?

    Rob, do you know whether there is a youtube clip of heat 14 where Tungate got KK on the line?

    Belle vue -V- Rye House 23.04.18

    Glad you enjoyed it. There were some good races, especially for us Aces fans. There is a bigger car park on the south side of the stadium plus another one in an adjoining school, so plenty of car parking. Hope you make it back.

    Hitmen v Colts - KOC - 22/4/18

    I like watching both. Especially when witnessing the transition from the NL to the PL. How good is it to witness Dan Bewley's progress. I'd hope that Kyle Bickley will follow him in a couple of years as well. I do agree that the Colt's this year have exceeded my expectations though.

    Hitmen v Colts - KOC - 22/4/18

    Thanks fubar, appreciate that. I really am impressed with Lawlor and what strides he has made since he first appeared for the Colts in 2016?. I also think that Bowen could make a mark, maybe as Andy Mellish has done, interesting to watch progress. Looking forward to the next Colt's match.

    Hitmen v Colts - KOC - 22/4/18

    Sounds like a good result. Appreciate a word or two on how Lawlor and Bowen went if you don't mind.

    Colts v Hitmen - KOC - 20/4/18

    Agree, the racing was decent last night. Always enjoy watching the Colts. I thought Bowen looked a lot better, against Coventry he seemed too stiff, probably down to nerves. It's going to be interesting watching the progress of this team. Feel that Lawlor is going to make real strides this year. Watching the Colts at the NSS is surely the best value in British speedway right now.

    Colts v Hitmen - KOC - 20/4/18

    Looking forward to this one. I've been very impressed so far with Joe Lawlor and watching his progress will be a bonus this year. Any news on Ben Woodhull's fitness? Must say it's a joy to watch the Colts' matches, less pressure more fun.

    Belle Vue Colts 2018

    That's a weaker team than anticipated but think I'd have Andy Mellish in it. Not really concerned to win the league as long as the racing is as good as it's been these past two years and that we see the riders progress. Think Kyle will be a big scorer this year.

    Belle Vue 2018

    Sounds good Phil and will be good watching the development. Which country is he from, do you know? Interesting suggestion of James Shanes at reserve!

    Belle Vue Colts 2018

    Has JPB got a NL place? Would he be eligible? Certainly be a decent replacement for Dan

    Thanks Phil, that makes sense.
