  1. Weight, set ups etc - no suggestion of anything illegal from my end! Other people around me on the terraces Saturday night and again in Wroclaw were saying that he does get get in lines sooner off the bends but likewise, I can't notice it!

    Introducing yourself....

    Unfortunately not, I get to around 2/3s of the home, and 4/5 away a season generally. I’d love to make every meeting, but the distance, work and my daughter do hold me back slightly. When I go though, I always try to bring a car load of people who wouldn’t normally go otherwise - friends, family etc, and I’m pleased to say that a handful of these have since become hooked and go week in, week out

    Introducing yourself....

    Assuming this is still going ... Real name (first name only if you wish) Alex Brady - Age - 28 - Location - Bradwell, Great Yarmouth - What do you do for a living - Founder/Manging Director of Minors & Brady Estate Agents - Club you support - Kings Lynn - what got you into speedway - My uncle took me from an early age, I think I was 3 for my first meeting. - best speedway moment - I have 2 - Toruń last year to see Woffinden win the world title, or the treble winning season of the stars after the untimely passing of Ashley Jones - worst speedway moment - see above - truly heartbreaking.  - Favourite speedway rider and why - Tai Woffinden, he can do things on a bike that nobody else can, and is very down to earth. - most disliked speedway rider and why - none, there’s plenty I wouldn’t like to see race for Lynn, but I have the utmost respect for all and enjoy a good panto villain (Ryan Fisher was always great value) - what do you enjoy other than speedway - watch Norwich City, Horse Racing, Cricket and time away with the wife & daughter - social media links (if you wish to connect with other members). twitter - @bradybanger
  4. Sitting at Växjö airport reflecting on last night - a good nights racing once the first block of heats were complete. Lindgren a worthy winner, and Madsen finds speed that nobody else can - lots of talk as to how, but that’s for another day. Looked an incredibly harsh exclusion for Doyle in his final heat which ultimately cost him his spot in the semis, but I’m yet to see a replay. A steward at the venue told us the crowd was 5,500 - but I’m terrible at estimating so I wouldn’t like to guess either way. Final mention goes to Tai Woffinden who made our trip that little bit extra special - inviting myself, my wife and our almost 2 year old daughter into the pits, allowing her to sit on his bikes and sit in his pit bay - a true top man and his true form on a bike is only round the corner I’m sure. Next GP were attending is Cardiff, so Teterow and Vojens will be a tv job - looking forward to them already.

    King's Lynn v Wolves 15/08/2019

    Interesting news via the EDP - Cook is appealing and therefore is free to ride tomorrow, so Grajczonek is now guesting for Lambert and Cook is free to ride until he’s had a hearing with the SCB!

    King's Lynn v Wolves 15/08/2019

    Josh Grajczonek it is for Thursday! Let’s hope we get the Josh from his last couple of rides when Poole were in town, and not the Josh who was guesting for Peterborough a few weeks ago.
  8. Appreciated, thank you.
  9. Thanks for that, similar write up to Hallstavick where they were turning people away who hadn’t prebooked. I’ll just take the chance!
  10. Flying out for this one Friday, first time at Malilla. Hiring a car and driving, does anyone know what the car parking situation is like? I’ve emailed Speedway GP & Dackarna 3 times but no reply to any!

    Torun 2019..

    Flew into Bydgoszcz last year, taxi is only around £10 to get the train station and then the train was around £2 for a 50 minute journey - incredibly easy
  12. Cancelled due to the weather
  13. Flying out for this tomorrow - storms forecast for Saturday tea time, brilliant! I think Doyley will go well, and I think Zmarzlik will have a big one.
  14. Official sell out yesterday afternoon - although I think you’re right, I’m sure they’ll be some floating around
  15. Flying out to this tomorrow with 4 mates, but we only have 4 tickets between the 5 of us - if anyone has a spare or hears of any Friday night/Saturday - please let me know!
  16. Looks like no Woffinden - Broken shoulder blade & bruised lungs according to twitter
  17. Went to this with a couple of friends. We flew in Ljubljana mid afternoon Friday from Stansted and stayed there for the duration. We caught the train to Krsko at 12:50, one change with a small wait and we arrived at the track after a 15/20 minute walk from the station around 2:35. Some beautiful scenary on the train if that’s your thing and easy to understand. Taxi back to Ljubljana after racing was slightly more difficult, but doable and safe enough - I’ll definitely revisit.

    Warsaw 2019

    Now making my way to the old town area - any suggestions on bars?

    Warsaw 2019

    1st time in Warsaw, and I’m so excited for the start of the GP series it’s untrue! Predictions? I’m going for 1st Woffinden, 2nd Zmarzlik 3rd Emil 4th Dudek. Whatever happens, it’s going to be a brilliant night!
  20. Great ride and what form he is in. It may be early days, but back to back titles looking like a certainty

    Kings Lynn 2019

    You’re right Mike - and your first paragraph hits the nail on the head - it was aimed at some of the Kings Lynn ‘fans’. The purpose of my proposed bet was to see if any of these people who are adamant that Kings Lynn will collect the wooden spoon (or to be battling with Ipswich to avoid this) would be brave enough to ‘put their money where their mouth is’ and, unsurprisingly in my view, nobody has taken up the opportunity. The bet was simple - Kings Lynn succeed and these people would £50 to the BEN fund - a price worth paying. If they don’t succeed, I would pay £50 to the BEN fund and all these negative people ‘win’ as they could take great pleasure in saying ‘I told you so’ along with Speedway benefitting from the great work the BEN fund do. Ultimately, it was the long winded way to get to the point that, no matter what is offered, you will never please everybody. I said a few months ago, people would moan if we signed Woffinden, Zmarzlik & Dudek, and I stick by that. Drop the negative attitude, get behind the sport and the team, and lets actually look forward to the 2019 season, I for one can’t wait - if the predictions are right for the remaining team spots, it will be a team of triers and a team I think the fans can connect with. Putting my tin hat firmly on now . . .

    Kings Lynn 2019

    I will restrict it to 10, but a worthy cause for the money to go to if anybody is happy to accept.

    Kings Lynn 2019

    Blind faith perhaps!

    Kings Lynn 2019

    I think the stars will make the play offs next season. I know there’s plenty of people who’ll disagree - I’ll happily wager £50 with anyone who disagrees, losers money to the Ben fund - I’ll happily put my money where my mouth is ...... of course if it works both ways ......

    Eastbourne 2019

    Reading the speedway star and I hope it works out. Wonder if Eddie Kennett is still demanding £1500 appearance fee as per Rye House last year . . .
