    Several points to prove especially if any of the rest can close the gap on the away points they are capable of scoring.

    Definitely for me, I won't be going much ( as last season ) unless when I do chance an early season visit the quality of the racing is much improved. Just too boring otherwise!

    It's so "thrilling" can the Stars get into the top four of a seven team league!
  4. The only stadiums that have run speedway in the past that will continue in the years ahead, will be those that house others sports or are multi use. I can't see ten stadiums existing by the centenary of speedway in 2028. Or is it now heralded as 2023?

    UK speedway's mantra " If you don't like it, just stay away". From the early Buster book " My Way or The Highway".

    Unless you are 6ft tall, when you stand next to him you will find that he is indeed tall,. It's in his genes.

    What's not hard to understand is that it is team building decisons like last year at P'boro and what seems to be the case this year. that drives fans away from the turnstiles. 7 teams averaging less that 1,000 fans per match is not saying much for the health of the "top" UK league is it?

    It's Brian O'Bongo actually and he could do a cracking job but will need decent machinery which has been his achilles heel so far, On a decent motor he could easily be the best ever newbie to the UK leagues.

    Deja vu as this is pretty much how the quality of racing went down the pan at King's Kynn. After hours of Tonka Toytime - Lo and Behold - a Gate and Go track was ( and is ) invariably on offer. Very sad.

    Chris Holder is another rider with motivation problems. When things go right he is still capable of great things on-track. When things don't go so well or not as he prefers. his motivation to race droops - a lot. Yes he had has a heavy load of injuries and off track problems but when you pay him top dollar you have a right to expect persistent maximum effort and application.

    History tells us that Cook will have at least one meltdown in 2020. He needs a lot of support off track and needs someone aware of his problems to manage him as a team member. A "wobble" seems omnipresent.

    But tractor driving is very compulsive and seductive. It can feel as if the driver is a "master / mistress of the Dark Arts". Some promoters who take the wheel themselves - from dawn to dusk - believe that they have prepared the ultimate racing surface. And then race times and the quantity of passing remains unchanged.

    Close to zero if you are talking of building up a new fanbase. With the excitement level of PL racing - on average - at an all time low, only radical changes to the racing of offer will possibly interest new younger motor sport fans. Smaller bikes, identically prepared, handicap racing, in fact a whole new sport and even change the name of the sport in the UK.

    As no-one has any idea who they could possibly be, lengthening the period of wait before disclosure will surely continue to excite the appetite of fans for the 2020 season to begin. Don't you think?

    I chose which meetings that seemed to heighten and rouse my interest and went to three of them last season. Higher prices for a lesser product means I will do the same again ( as very likely will others ) as the VFM slides yet again. Two or three real races for your money is poor value by my way of thinking. Unless the quality of racing inproves I fear I will soon not be stepping into Saddlebow Road again.
