    Panthers up for sale.

    what's the chances that Ged Rathbone might be attending the first day as the outgoing owner of Peterborough, and the other days as the incoming owner of Redcar?

    Poole 2019

    That makes zero sense! Had Poole used an eligible guest it wouldn't need to be sanctioned.... because....well... it would have been eligible anyway. They had to get permission to use an otherwise ineligible guest. And god knows why that permission was granted.
  4. So the "teams" wore a random collection of body colours? Just as long as they had the right number on the back? And they ignored the rules about a team manager having to be presenr? Sounds like a right shambles.

    Doug Ellis RIP

    What? Steve Shovlar supported a club who cheated? Who'd have thunk it!
  6. "Stoke Speedway Shale Event" is nothing to do with Stoke Speedway? I could have sworn it was at Loomer road? You know, that track that still needs to stage Official meetings that were supposed to be staged before 23 September. BSPA/SCB should block them from holding anything else until they fulfill their official commitments.
  7. Wouldn't they be better concentrating on finishing their official fixtures, which should have been completed by 23 September, before arranging something like this?

    It's a BSPA shared event, staged by Leicester on behalf of the BSPA. Leicester should never be allowed another BSPA event again after today's disgrace.

    Didn't seem a bad crowd at all. I reckon near 500 maybe. But what a disgrace of a track. Made Stoke look like a billiard table. Riders struggling to stay on. Bends 1 and 3 were diabolical. Falls in most races, but not the fault of the riders, purely the track. The only passing came in the title run off when Morley and Bowtell were having a battle, but even then the track was the winner, causing Bowtell to fall. Morley was handed the title in an anticlimax as Bowtell lay there on whatever that rubble was that they used instead of shale. Leicester should be fined and banned from ever holding a BSPA meeting again.
  10. The only thing they could do is take the result at heat 14, and declare heat 15 as null and void? But I really don't see that happening.
  11. Interesting.... http://scbgb.co.uk/news.php?extend.75.1 Hopefully the SCB will be taking action against Allitt for the violence. Also is the referee in trouble for wrongly stopping Belle Vue using Steve Worrall in heat 15?

    Swindon v Belle Vue. Thursday 27/09/18.

    The SCB should credit a full maximum score to the likes of Batchelor and Morris in situations like this. Using a dead-rubber of a fixture to manipulate the averages is robbing the public. But will the SCB take any action? Of course not.

    Celebrity fans

    It was the long since retired Peter Collins. They probably thought Lineker wouldn't know the name of a current rider.

    Current league riders who started in the 80s?

    Tony Atkin Started at Stoke in the 80s. (around 86?) And was riding for Stoke in the NL this year.

    Somerset v Kings Lynn Tuesday September 4th

    That's not how it works. It's 9 days for a rider over 20 years of age. It's 12 days for a teenager, and 23 days for a 15-year-old. But whether a concussion picked up abroad causes a concussion suspension in Britain isn't so clear.
