    Belle Vue 2018

    Probably the reason we don't use Auty to guest at number 3.
  2. 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?

    Belle vue -V- Rye House 23.04.18

    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.

    Belle Vue 2018

    Can't imagine why there is no word on the team next year. Would be surprised if it's not the same as last year except a replacement for Kenneth. I'd favour bringing Paddy Hougaard back, doesn't seem to be featuring in Somerset's possible team combinations.

    Bv Vs Lakeside Play-off Semi Leg 2

    I think that this is a reasonable question. Certainly not seen Lee Paine at the NSS for a long time nor heard how he is. I'm not sure that his absence or presence would have made any difference to our season. We have a young improving side some of whom will go far. Bewley, Bickley and Smith being prime examples.

    Bv Vs Lakeside Play-off Semi Leg 2

    The Colts are nothing like the old Exeter, as you say, they can ride away as well (both Colts and Aces) There is no comparison between the two tracks; Exeter was dangerous with the surface and the steel fence. The number of riders who would miss a trip to Exeter or score way below their average seems to suggest it. However, the number of riders who say how wonderful it is to ride at the NSS proves that there is no fear factor. Totally agree about George, he put a lot of work in last year and during the winter to build this team. He is missed.
  19. Totally agree with both these posts. Last year it was slicker all over and allowed Steve Worrall to win despite being on 15mts. Also, he and Cookie were passing on the inside out of the bends, this year it seems to be on the outside out at the fence far more often. Just looking at the grippy track last Friday made me concerned. Wonder what input the riders have re. track preparation now. Also, these guy need to bring these Polish engines.

    Chase the Ace does a better job with the crowd and he can dance!

    Simon Barber

    Hayley knows great deal more than Simon Barber about speedway and some of her interviews have been really good. I recall one recently with Jon Armstrong, also last week with Mark Lemon. Contrast the excruciating, embarrassing interview Simon did with Natalie. I think the majority of us will be glad he's gone, anyway we still have Chase!

    Belle Vue V Somerset - 1/5/17 , 12pm

    Well said mikebv. Never understood the need of the negative ones to try to influence those who don't agree with them. I'm off to the track now and expect a good match.
  23. Yes, was a surprising scoreline and was particularly surprised that Armstrong didn't show apart from his battle with Shuttleworth. Hope that this is not the norm as the racing last year was consistently entertaining. Maybe Mildenhall were just not prepared. They certainly weren't gating and Halsey had bike problems. Payne was really fast so hopefully he'll do ok with Berwick tonight. I also think that Bewley is just too good for this league a nd maybe should just do Premier and Championship. Anyway, although not a lot of excitement an enjoyable night with a decent crowd.

    Wolves V Belle Vue 18/4/17

    Went last night and thought the racing wasn't very good at all. Feel as a regular at the NSS we have been spoiled so expectations as to what good racing is are raised. Also, for some there is a natural reaction for the years of criticism being directed to the Kirky Lane track and having to take it. It will pass. Did think however, that the crowd was small for what had been billed as an attractive fixture.

    Over the years I've heard so much attributed to a 'reliable source' I'd estimate that most of it is proved to be utterly untrue. In this open media world, unfortunately things that are published become the 'truth' for those who want to believe it. It seems to matter little whether it is or not.
