  1. Kings Lynn 2018..

    " Undreamt of " is what Buster promised us for 2108 and he couldn't have been more correct. If, that is, it equals a nightmare - going nowhere team.
  2. Bt Sport Coverage

    that's the key part ( and no dig at Aces High ) that's why the sport is where it is, in the UK now.
  3. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Just as with Terry Betts and Michael Lee - Bums on Seats really counted and I think without Lambert there would Bums off Seats to some extent at least.
  4. OAP concessions, why?

    We are not far from that 100% boycott anyway. The end is nigh unless the product is greatly improved and the presentation brought into the 21st century. So you may be right, it doesn't matter very much , who - if anybody gets a discount.

    We all know the tale of how he beat Tai Woffinden around KL - once. But most of his other rides were poor or often very poor.
  6. OAP concessions, why?

    It might be time for a four match boycott from the start of 2018 by all those who qualify for ( and need to take the discount ) some tracks would lose 25 / 30 % ion the crowd,

    Old habits die hard, very hard. But if Buster wants KL speedway to pick up again he must do that.
  8. Godfrey should have stood down, having brought the sport into disrepute ( by the standards of other sports ). But in speedway, no, you are a True Blazer Gent.
  9. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Only two Friday's to go before the Drums Roll and the Trumpet Fanfare of the Fan's Forum - the excitement rises to hysteria level in the new "undreamt of changes and improvements" policy of the new promotion. Having seen the return of a football playing striker returning to low level Lincoln on the national TV news, I am expecting NKI ( if indeed it is he at No.1 ) to at least do a flyby of the East Anglia region in a Lancaster bomber and parachute onto the centre green at the AFA. Ot is it to be Gino Manzares arriving on a Jet Pack - that should make the news! That is what I call undreamt of. Which will it be that makes real headlines outside of East Anglia?
  10. Farewell Brandon - A Video Fly By

    Over and done with, my memories of watching almost every match at Brandon from 1973 - 1997 ( when I lived in Northampton ). I was a biker for all of that time and loved the ride there ( although there were very few other bikers ). Some fantastic racing and controversies Thank you lads, Big Names or not but I remember vividly Andy Smith's amazing on track efforts among so many others. And oddly, the first race win Peter Lloyd ever had there ( maybe the only one? ).All consigned to the archive now and never to be replaced with new on track clashes and rivalries.
  11. Fans talked about what happened during the race, years ago - especially the passing or close efforts to pass - but there is so little to say about 75% of races nowadays, that all you can say is X missed the start and couldn't cut back on the second bend - ergo race over.
  12. As expected a total whitewash for "Honest" Rob Godfrey. BSPA and SCB closed ranks to protect their man regardless of their actions.
  13. Kings Lynn 2018..

    THJ not my cup of tea and feel that he will not improve much, even on his own equipment. Gino Manzares is much better bet IMHO.

    Things first went awry around 1975 with the introduction of the four valve engine and then later with the lay down as they both increased the "first away wins" perception of speedway, which is what you see in 75% of races nowadays. Not enough on track racing thrills to keep people going back to see more.
  15. Ditch the Family Tag??

    Dirty, dangerous, raw? I reckon in the modern world the dirty tag may not appeal to a broad spectrum of the public who do not know of speedway. Dangerous , probably accurate but so was Wall of Death and that has long gone. Raw - well if the racing were closer and more exciting it could be marketed as raw. As it is in the 21st century I am not sure if it has a place in motorcycle sport. And take it off the TV it will disappear entirely from public view. Fast, Furious and Never Give Up might be another way to sell it. But if people don't ever come across it, or hear of it, it doesn't matter what you call it!
