    It'll wooosh straight over his head..... a bit like the aviator and the plane.

    Can anyone fly a plane?

    Poole 2019

    Good to see Matt Ford trying to put the freshness back into Poole. "Nasty smells up here often come from down there in Poole. Smells from your dog, and tobacco too. Not to mention the smell of Matt Ford's dodgy dealing.... Well, all you have to do is...." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4q8inM0gKVo
  4. If the Aces got a crowd 5 to 6 times that of Colts (2,500-3,000) then there would be no problems. Sadly, I think you're way over-estimating the Aces crowd. I doubt it's more than half what you think it is.

    Rider Id: Mason Wear

    Scroll down to page 34 here. Look at the 2nd half reserve race of this 1964 match! http://www.speedwayresearcher.org.uk/cradleyheath1964.pdf

    Stoke 2019

    He did. He broke his back in a heavy crash into a post on the back straight when the power went, the lights went out, and the fence went down.

    Stoke 2019

    Seems that Stoke are looking for another rider as they have just realised that Paul Burnett fractured his leg over a month ago before they announced his signing. Thought it was very strange that they announced his signing while he was laid up with a bad fracture. Anyway, they've finally caught on and issued this statement.... STOKE’S pre-season injury jinx has struck for a second season with Paul Burnett being ruled out due to breaking his leg in an accident at work. Potters promoter Dave Tattum commented “It was great knowing we had our team in place and then I had a phone call off Paul informing us that he’d been injured at work. We then waited a little while awaiting outcomes from the hospital and Paul has now had to have an external fixator fitted to his leg resulting in there being no chance of him being fit to race by the start of the season. All of us here at Stoke send our best wishes for a speedy recovery to Paul.”

    NL Cup draw 2019

    It makes the sport look unprofessional when a paid administrator is allowed to put out a statement with schoolboy spelling and grammatical mistakes. Can't the SCB run to a spellchecker? Would the administrator of the F.A. put out a football statement riddled with errors? I know some will say this is only a forum, so making lots of spelling mistakes is unimportant, but it's a forum which can be read by all (including sponsors). If Jason Pipe is just posting as himself, then that's not quite so bad, but when he's signing the post as "NL Co-ordinator", then it should be more professional.

    1997 Amateur League

    The majority from the actual racecards in the programmes. They were all 100% right at the time, and I have absolutely nothing to suggest any were amended afterwards

    1997 Amateur League

    All confirmed as correct scores from 1997 programmes.

    Wembley Memories

    Ivan Mauger rode at Wembley many times. He may have even won a title or two there. (If only there was a reliable website written in English that you could consult to find out the correct information about Ivan's Wembley appearances!). You might also like to google for some information that explains the world-wide-web to you, with particular reference to how discussion forums progress and evolve from original threads. You might care to research how it is bad internet etiquette to keep opening new topics for similar discussions concerning the individual webpages of a naff and irrelevent error-strewn website badly written in HTML from the 1990s.

    Wembley Memories

    Based on your previous contributions, I can actually believe you don't have the requisite thinking skills to understand the post. Meanwhile, you can find Wembley under the section of "Tracks Who Is Name Starts With W" on the self-same grammatically mangled excuse of a so-called website which we are discussing in this thread. In fact every letter of the Alphabet has the same "Who's/Whose" cock-up on this error-strewn Stanley Unwin-esque excuse for a website that you embarassingly seem so keen to promote.

    Wembley Memories

    Good news. Julie, Kym and Debbie are now described as Ivan's children. So at least Kym has regained his male status. Ivan however is still alive until April 2019. Meanwhile over the the "Tracks who is name starts with B" page, it appears that the Belle Vue Aces rode in the "Amateur League" in 1997 and haven''t been seen since. The Belle Vue Colts rode in the Elite league in 1997, The National League in 2011 and MDL in 2012...but haven't been seen since either. The National Speedway Stadium doesn't exist.

    Well, Trevor "Readman" seems to have been changed to Trevor "Redman"..... Still doesn't seem to have any connection to the Wembley promoter Trevor Redmond though.

    Plymouth 2019

    Saw this and assumed someone had confused January 1st with April 1st. But now I'm starting to think it's not a joke and it actually is for real. I've always thought that Plymouth Devils was a decent enough nickname, but if it wanted a change it could draw on the City's history for inspiration (being the place the Pilgrim Fathers departed from, it's association with Francis Drake, the home of Europe's biggest naval base, etc etc). With all of these options, "Gladiators" seems a bit naff. And worse still "Plymouth Colosseum"??? Really? Plymouth Speedway is a nice little place, but that's what it is... a nice little set-up on a school's playing field. Not quite the Colosseum. And can I query the spelling in the press release. It says "coliseum". Surely if they're portraying themselves as gladiators then they mean the "Colosseum" in Rome? As far as I know Gladiators fought at the Colosseum.... the "coliseum" is a theatre in Oldham where you're more likely to see Christopher Biggins in panto dressed as a dame. p.s. Will Ben Wilson change his name to Ben Hur?
