    California Reunion 2019

    I went today, nice event & nice people . sadly the poor weather the last couple of years seems to have understandably reduced the attendance
  3. I am probably wrong, but seem to remember something about British speedway getting a share of any profit from Wembley world finals ?
  4. Some of what people are saying is just moaning , but a lot is constructive criticism , and if you paid to attend ( I did ) you have every right to comment Cardiff is a good event , but not perfect . Although 40, 000 keeps getting quoted ( is that official ? ) , I could see a lot of empty seats from where I was sitting and with a better track maybe you could fill some more seats, the most positive thing is that, for one day a year - UK Speedway looks like a big-time Sport again
  5. Yes , it was { the racing } I know its a temporary track , but its indoors so the weather cant affect the preparation before or during the meeting . its not like they have to hold back on watering the track in case it rains , and maybe they could try a different shape or some banking , or even a different surface surely they have a blank canvass every year , so it cant be that hard to try some small changes Its a shame, as the Track / Racing is the only thing that lets the event down
  6. The closer it gets to start time then touts may sell at a loss to get some money back , as the tickets are obviously worthless when the meeting starts As for the racing , I went and thought it was poor . Kept thinking - its a temporary track and if they have no restrictions then why not try a different shape to the track next year ?

    I think can vaguely remember that too, but I also think I can remember Smallmead itself being based on another track ?

    Value for money

    Gate money isn't everything though, if 3000 people buy a burger/cup of tea / programme etc. you might well end up with more money to bank than if 1000 people did the same. Also how many of the 1000 people paying £18 would pick and choose meetings due to the price, but would attend more at £5 admission ? At £18 how many people with a family would go on there own, but would take the family with them if it was £5 admission ? its not easy getting the right balance on admission prices

    Dogs Allowed?

    Thanks for the tip , I will avoid Leicester then. as for " losing the argument " and " stupid comments " , your comments seem pretty stupid as well

    Dogs Allowed?

    This is one of those situations where you cannot please all of the people all of the time. There are some dog owners who have to take there dog EVERYWHERE they go , regardless of it maybe annoying other people ( or annoying the dog even ! } Personally , I don't want to go and watch Speedway while stepping in dog poo and listening to dogs barking . As someone said , do you take a dog to the Cinema ? a Football Match ? I would probably avoid any track where a lot of people took dogs ( I believe you could add Cardiff to the NOT allowed list )

    Tony Briggs How Good Could He Have Been.?

    could you explain that please ?
  13. Oh dear , clicked on this to read about - " Tai Woffinden , best ever " what happened to manners on the internet , and a bit of friendly banter between people with different opinions. lucky for me I have a life and don't spend too much time on forums, take care
  14. Cant get my head around people wanting someone they don't like to be world champion just because they share the same nationality. maybe some people from Britain support riders who they think are likeable people regardless of where they come from, rather than supporting someone they may find annoying , but come from the same country Carter is a good example - I would have loved to see any British rider except him win a world chamionship
  15. should that be 500k and 750k as income ? agree with you about ticket prices , went to Cardiff with a £19 ticket and enjoyed it enough to go back next year, but if the same seat was £50 would not have gone, or maybe would go one time only
