  1. It's certainly an indepth study and seems to take in all the factors involved, except rider starting ability. A fast starter will, most times, have an advantage over a poor starter, but that can't be changed. Would be interesting if the authorities adopted Proposed Plan B for a season to compare the statistics.

    Lets hope that Tai continues to lend Bewley his bikes as he has for the Polish Play Off finals. bewley scored a lot of points on them, which really showed that he needs to upgrade his motors, and he was growing in confidence every ride.
  3. Ben91, there wouldn't be any Semi Finals.

    Polish Extraleague 2020

    " Bartek has been around while and doesn’t crash much considering the way you think he rides.Its very hard to be safe rider in Speedway so much depends on other riders." I think most probably Bartek intimidates some riders, that they know he won't pull out, once he decides he is coming through on the inside.

    Wouldn't that mean they would miss that weeks weekend Polish matches if their test must be earliest 5 days from Swedish match?
  15. All the more commendable and to think that Tom was only third choice after one of the selected riders turned down the opportunity to compete, who cited lack of racing in 2020. I would have thought any under 21 with aspirations would have jumped at the chance and gone out practicing in the UK as much as possible before the event. Looks like the future is looking bright for Tom.
  16. Well done Tom Brennan, not easy in Europe without experience of their tracks.

    I found that link was best, but yesterday wouldn't work. I had it on full screen and if you put curser on bottom right hand corner it brings up a playing menu along the bottom, had to change it to N Sport and worked fine. Had to do the same today. Hope that helps for the future.

    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.
