  1. I attended the Veterans meeting at Lydd on Saturday but had to leave after heat 25. If anybody who attended has a completed score card, could they possibly send me a scan so I can fill in my programme. Thanks. aspringett59@hotmail.com

    Thanks for the reply.
  3. Has a Gladiators Badge been produced yet, and if so from where or whom do I purchase it from. Thanks

    can anyone tell me if there is a new Plymouth Gladiators metal Badge for this season. There is nothing on their website.

    Workington 2019

    How much were you fined in relation to Workington, and do you know if Mildenhall & Coventry were also fined? Mick Horton should never be allowed near a Speedway track again.

    Workington 2019

    Do you know for a fact that Workington were fined £3000 for non-fulfilment of fixtures? If so, does this also apply to Mildenhall, Coventry & Buxton.

    Buxton - epitomy of NL racing?

    Can't you say how much the Licences would cost and maybe someone could set up a crowd funding page to cover all costs for the day. Speedway fans seem to unite when a fellow club neds help, and every fan seems sad at your clubs demise, and I am sure people would be keen to help to see another event held at your picturesque venue.

    AGM November 2018

    I think the picture is of the after AGM dance to celebrate what crap they have come up with for next season.
  9. What's the betting that the 2nd meeting gets abandoned after heat 10 citing "curfew"

    Perhaps before making a decision, Lakeside should canvass their supporters to see, 1) which track is most viable or accessible 2) what level they prefer to watch. That way the promotion can gauge what's best and most cost effective. It's not fair on supporters if the club just fold when other options may be available to them. On the other hand, it's not fair to start a season(like Rye did) then go bust. I am not a Lakeside supporter but don't like to see any club close.

    I know this won't be popular but how about rejoining the NL for next season. I know you have had a great season, but being homeless with very small support must be crippling the management. So if you do share at Eastbourne or Kent or even stay at Rye, keeping the name alive and still running is better than nothing. I am sure if Buxton can survive all these years on crowds of about 200, Lakeside should be able to manage that.
  12. If Mildenhall can come out with a such a statement knowing exactly why their riders weren't going to be available, then why couldn't they have announced this either 2 days prior or even on the evening they hosted Eastbourne. This is just a worded piece of bullrubbish, as it is obvious it was pre-planned as a pay back for the earlier meeting back in July. And surely they would have been in touch with Eastbourne asking when they intend to re-stage it. As for their good name, they lost that years ago. Also, having a pop about Eastbourne not fulfilling their fixtures until after the cut-off, why don't they create a fuss about Coventry refusing to fulfil their NT matches.
  13. According to Buxton, Coventry declined all Sunday's in October. That's where the SCB should have stepped in and insisted that they take one of the options. Again, it is the SCB that is failing to do it's duties to the sport.
  14. Is this going to be a rush to heat 10
  15. This is another black mark for Speedway. The SCB investigation will come to nothing as there will be no proof of riders being unable to make it, the promotion are supposedly broke so a fine is no good, and Mildenhall won't get suspended as they need all the clubs they can get. If Mildenhall had such a bumper gate last night, they should be made to pay compensation to Eastbourne for Catering ordered, Programmes printed and any other incurred costs.
