  1. Thoroughly deserved victory for Lindgren in front of his home fans. Another very enjoyable GP, stoping Madsen will take some doing though.

    Wroclaw GP 2019

    What was also amazing was how quickly the tickets sold out in the first place. We’d have been there too if we had realised how quick you had to be off the mark. So watching it on TV was second best but what a meeting. Can only guess at the atmosphere with a Polish winner. Luckily the Polish anthem is quite a good tune.

    Ipswich Vs Kings Lynn Thursday 20th June

    Quite agree. Not a rider I knew a lot about previously, but he spoke very well after the last ever meeting at Lakeside last season. Keep it going

    Ipswich Vs Kings Lynn Thursday 20th June

    Was thinking a 5-1 in heat 14 would be helpful but didn’t really expect it with Kerr going so well. Lawson getting the better of Lambert R in heat 13 though was my highlight otherwise it would have been 39 - 39 at that stage. Only three last places out of 15 emphasises the team ethic the Witches have at the moment. Another great contribution from Heeps, despite his arm aching from carrying a heavy collection bucket for the benefit fund. Hope the collection went well.
  5. Now back in Blighty after an excellent weekend. Yes it is all about being there seeing and hearing it live, you can be close to the action if you chose the right seats, although one of our party won't wear a white shirt next time . Will watch a recording later this week to see how TV compares but Warsaw and Prague are a must for the total package they offer. As for a Manchester and Cardiff GP, providing they are at opposite ends of the season it could be worth a go if the costs are not prohibitive. Easier to get to than the middle of a Swedish forest.
  6. Well done to Phil Morris and everyone else involved in getting the meeting done in two hours or so with the weather threat, that fortunately never really materialised (and for allowing us more drinking time afterwards). Madsen has to be taken seriously as a potential champion although there's a long way to go, but congratulations to Kolodziej for grabbing the win.
  7. Or just get the tube back. No queues there. A few decent heats watching it live but not a classic. A few drops of rain now felt but nothing really.......yet.

    Warsaw 2019

    Another great evening in Warsaw. Atmosphere brilliant until the second semi final when it all went relatively quiet. What odds was Madsen?, should have invested a zloty or even two. Pleased to see Iversen up there after last year's injury, but we'll done Robert Lambert.

    Warsaw 2019

    Yep that's the point. It's a deceptively long walk to the Stadium. You can see it but it never seems to get any closer. If it rains like last night we'll all get drenched.

    Sheffield 2019

    After last nights SoN paid a first visit to Sheffield today. Thought the racing was fair enough, some good passes and some 4 lap processions but no worse than seen elsewhere. The programme did mention how much work was needed on the track. Not many speedway tracks where you can sit and have a Sunday carvery roast though.

    Warsaw 2019

    And an incredible atmosphere when full of excited Poles Hopefully we’ll be sat with some calm Swedes again this year However much they ‘big’ Cardiff up, this event has overtaken it and is now the biggest and best indoor GP. Plus Warsaw is a very underrated city with plenty to explore.

    SoN Belle Vue

    You can’t fault her enthusiasm, but the pitch of her voice does unfortunately cut through you after a few heats. Yes the catering, and the general policy if not being able to take your own food in, which is rather strange. Is it simply to boost bar profits? What about those with specific dietary requirements. Ridiculous long queues for rather unappetising stuff when you finally get to the front. Glad we had a decent pint elsewhere beforehand. But lets be positive. For anyone who hasn’t been to Belle Vue make the effort. The racing is fast and entertaining.

    SoN Belle Vue

    Iversen just said ref held tapes for a long while, possibly too long so two of them possibly thought the gate had failed? Just a wild guess.

    Nice evening here. Hope some of the racing is competative but not expecting a classic. Programme scorecard isn't great, riders names are in white on a black background. Forgot to bring my white ink pen for the changes. Still if that's the only moan......
  15. An extra minute or two to fill in all the details prior to heats 14 and 15 wouldn’t go amiss, but apart from that 90 minutes for 15 heats seems about right, especially with a slightly chilly wind blowing tonight. Add 15 minutes for the parade at the start and it’s about the same length as a football match. Fortunately there have been no real incidents in the meetings so far to cause significant delay. Enjoyed all three meetings I’ve seen at Ipswich this season, let’s hope the entertainment continues and more come through the turnstiles. Tonight Jake Allen beating Jason Doyle has to be a highlight, a superb effort to get 16 points.
