    Why would you go there as a spectator?....that's with 25 years regular attendance as a Potters fan. It used too be abuse from the promotion, now it's not even excuses. I think Dave Tatum does the track still? The 10 heat match appears a regular at Loomer Road....There have been chances to sell but to no avail...I'm just really sad that what was my club ends up like this.

    Potters v Colts - 5/5/18

    Is Stoke off with localised rain yet?, can't be much longer..... Always a reason to postpone until the lovely weather of October....

    Does anyone know when the hospitality information may be available? I'm taking my Dad to the Monday meeting against Swindon and want to give him a really good experience. Thanks Simon

    Kings Lynn 2018..

    1970 had 13 races and a full second half, normally 18 - 20 races total...interval after the match so if the kids needed to fog home main event was done.....

    I've seen Gappmaier ride larger continental tracks and he's certainly add strength at home...

    He could also ride Swindon really well when I was there...so probably a two trick pony......

    Wallinger put on Facebook no team place hasn’t had anyone contact him so I am guessing Stoke are replying to that? Thanks

    I see the Stoke website has DT trying to contact David Wallinger about twitter comments?. Could someone connected with the world of twitter expand on the issues please? Thanks

    With serious injuries that could have been prevented HSE would be looking at a broad and detailed investigation. I think shutting would be a lesser worry for those involved.

    Should the worst happen (and we hope it doesn't) liability is clear. They have known about the issue for several years, it's happened on a number of occasions and it's not been sorted out. I'd suggest the Promotion who created the problem and the BSPA as governing body who are clearly aware (referees reports) would both have liability.

    Loomer Road is one of only a few purpose built speedway stadia in the UK. The architects plans were the blueprint for Vojens, which opened in Sept 1975. (After Ole Olsen borrowed the plans). The original design incorporated long track bends outside the speedway ones to allow long track speedway in the UK. The current track was remodelled in 1979 by Pete Jarman with multiple changes since. When run well can generate a great business. The only way forward for a successful meaningful team is by new owners. Sadly it's a microcosm of how UK speedway is run. Lots of vested interests, infighting and too little business acumen.

    I'd suggest the last point is the cause of Points 2 and 3. Not sure that many of our Stadia would pass a beauty contest?

    We could write a book on this one...... It seems this happens every year with Stoke trying to cram October fixtures and not completing the fixtures. Why anyone would think of a season ticket at Stoke (as an ex season ticket holder at Stoke) is beyond me. Seems to me that one of the essential criteria for a promoter to have is the trust of the local supporters. This is hard won and easily lost.
