    Adonis have I upset you ? What tracks have I closed down then? I was working for Newport but I didn't close it down ...that was due to stock cars pulling out at last moment. I was at Coventry but did I close that down ? No ..in fact I wouldn't have been there as joined with Mark Phillips to SAVE Plymouth . So unsure what you are on about ??

  18. GOOD NEWS …… SOUTHERN DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE APPROVED FOR 2017 SEASON Following much discussion the Southern Development League was approved by the SCB and will commence in April . The SDL is to be run on the same format as the highly successful Midland Development League, who also received the rubber stamping to proceed for the seventh season . There are potentially six sides who will contest the new league, which will run with four man 500cc sides over six heats home and away. Definite starters are Reading Racers (based at Eastbourne), Weymouth Wildcats (based at Plymouth), Exeter Falcons (based at Somerset), Kent Kestrels and Plymouth Demons. The sixth side awaiting confirmation are Iwade Crusaders . The new league will be administered by Plymouth co-promoter Laurence Rogers, who has been the co-ordinator of the MDL for several years. He commented, “ We have patiently awaited the approval from the SCB on this new league. Initially there were moves to change the race format but this was rejected by both the MDL and SDL members. With my new involvement at Plymouth the MDL is being co-ordinated by Nigel Hinchcliffe at Scunthorpe whilst I will oversee the new league.” “We are awaiting news from Iwade on their membership but will press ahead with the five teams we have confirmed and work Iwade into the fixtures if they are able to run in the league. I have a provisional fixture list drafted and we will release those dates once fully confirmed with all the clubs.” “Each team is naming a squad of up to six riders and the league looks to be a competitive one with some new names in the squads declared . The MDL has done a great job giving young riders track time and involving them in a team situation in a structured league and now we can start to mirror that in the SDL. If you look at riders in the three main leagues and see where they started there is a long list of young Brits who cut their teeth at MDL level”
