    Belle Vue 2018

    What happened to the permanent terracing and facilities along the back straight that was talked of being completed this winter? Anybody ITK?

    This is the truth unfortunately and gets very little mention. Speedway stadia are shocking in general. I watched at Hyde Rd when I was a nipper, so I took my kids when they were little as I remembered how much I loved it. When I got there I was shocked at how dilapidated the place looked. We moved to Kirky Lane a couple of years later and although it was an old stadium, it had seating with bars on two sides and a restaurant , terracing on three sides and the grass bank was popular for families with youngsters running about. In its latter years it was a disgrace. Bars closed, toilets with smashed urinals, crumbling terracing on the 3Rd/4th bend and the crowd reflected it.We've had guests and tactical and delays forever, if this forum had existed in the 70's or 80's the complaints would have been the same as now. What's more pertinent is that the public are used to better arenas for sport, football, rugby, ice hockey, basketball have all updated, but Speedway grounds look worse now than they did 30 years ago. The public want more and better. Im not sure how you achieve that, but tidying are stadia up and improvements needs more emphasis.

    Relegation And Promotion Play Offs

    Fixed Mon/Thurs race nights are the final nail in the coffin for the sport in this country.

    Wolves V Rye House 10th July

    I've always thought the racing was poor there. First time I went there was around 1986 and I thought it barely looked like Speedway.
  5. I was looking forward to my first visit to Leicester. The guest situation is putting me off now.

    Rye House V King's Lynn 15/04/17

    Does this mean that Rye House are good, Swindon are brilliant, Kings Lynn aren't all that, and Wolverhampton are worse? Early season form can be hard to work out

    Sorry, I misunderstood that then.

    Surely by going to a single night for each league you are trying to accommodate doubling up rather than getting rid of it. There was a time when a good National League rider could make the sport pay and a good British League rider would have had no need to double up in the lower division. In my opinion, a single race night will kill off the sport in this country Surely by going to a single night for each league you are trying to accommodate doubling up rather than getting rid of it.

    Why is it you don't mention the car parking, programme or food and drink when calculating the cost when you go to Old Toilet? Presumably that's taking you way beyond sixty quid and it's more boring there these days than even the most processional speedway race. Twenty Four sniffs for two people to watch top league professional sport is a deal. I use the cost of admission as a plus point when persuading friends to come along to the NSS. "£17 for you and the kids come along for free" People are genuinely surprised at how reasonable it is. For what it's worth, I think the decrepit facilities at Speedway tracks are what put many people off. There are much higher expectations from paying supporters on that front than there was even twenty years ago.
  10. At a time when we want to reduce guests and do away with 'double uppers' it seems a great plan to reduce the number of riders in the UK by banning Australians. Well done you.

    Belle Vue 2017

    I liked Wosniak around Bells Vue last season. Bjerre is on a downward curve now. But either would be decent.

    Belle Vue 2017

    I like the look of that side. Wouldn't lose at home. And would finish top four comfortably.

    Coventry 2017

    Coventry? How has this happened? One of the few decent speedway stadia in the country (which is one of the big reasons Speedway is suffering, people expect better leisure facilities) Looking from a distance Ai can't see how it is anybody's fault but Sandhu's. Really nasty vicious tactics to close the place down it would appear. On the plus side, Rugby Council seem like they will be accommodating and the fact Brandon Estates (Whoever they are) are willing to listen to offers for the old girl Strange timing on Horton spilling some of the beans on what's happening and the 8 match season ticket. What happened between then and now to finish The Bees off?

    Apparently their viewing figures for togger are down by nearly 20%. I wonder if that has an impact on Speedway coverage.

    Swindon 2017

    I never understand why people talk about the weather. Right now across Manchester City Centre, there is an enormous viaduct for the railway being built with a spectacular new bridge. New lines, junctions and signalling are being installed, but not a single weekend's work has been cancelled because of the weather. Of course work on Swindon's new stadium could be going ahead.
