    Corona virus

    There seems an awful lot of hoops to jump through for professional speedway to return if you read through this. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-on-phased-return-of-sport-and-recreation/elite-sport-return-to-domestic-competition-guidance

    I have noticed that since the change to the clear envelope that my copy has been late, sometimes up to 7 days, here in Kent. It's strange that the odd time I have phoned Dave at subscriptions that the one he posts out, in the brown envelope, arrives the next day. Maybe during this virus situation, and the short staffed postal service in some parts of the country, the sorting offices can see that it is a magazine, as opposed to maybe a more important document, and decide to not overload their postmans rounds and hold on to them until a traditionally quieter day.

    Corona virus

    Seems UK football cancelled until 3rd April at least https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/international/coronavirus-england-vs-italy-denmark-cancelled-wembley-tickets-refunds-a9399686.html A statement from The FA read: “The FA, Premier League, EFL and FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship have collectively agreed to postpone the professional game in England until 3 April at the earliest. “This action, which will be kept under constant review, has been taken due to the increasing numbers of clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the Covid-19 virus. “It will also apply to all England team fixtures at every level and all FA competitions including the FA Cup and the Women’s FA Cup, along with academy and youth-team matches.

    Big decisions in November.

    Eurosport is part of the sky sport package, but if you want to watch the gp's then you still need BT sport.

    Rider Sharing

    In the mid to late 70's Exeter had a tie up with Canterbury as Wally Maudsley was co promoter, with John Richards, at Exeter and Promoter at Canterbury. In those days ther was no doubling up but it was usual for 2nd division #1 & 2 to be linked to a 1st division track. You could only be used as a #8 or to replace an injured/ill rider. The 1st division was so strong then that 2nd division heat leaders were on a par with the 1st division reserves.
  12. Seems Charles Wright has changed clubs according to todays Speedway G B press release " British Champion and Cardiff wildcard Charles Wright represents Glasgow ". Maybe Glasgow can pick up a trophy with two riders in it !!!!!
