    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2018

    Gino is a top bloke his confidence is in bits , now is the time to back and support him as I’ve seen what he did earlier in the season. We will alway be carrying a two point rider but that is how the team was set up , I gave Gino a handshake at Peterborough in the pits and donated some money to him , he needs a kiss and cuddle not to be hounded I’m confident once our side is back up to strength with our own riders Ginos scores will improve . Fact speedway riders get paid by how many points they score and don’t go on track to score zero points . We’re still in with a chance of two trophies so yes everyone is entitled to there opinion but support whoever puts the Scorpions race jacket on please

    Peterborough Panthers 2018

    As speedway is in turmoil with fixtures etc in both leagues and rider availability plus the sad demise of Rye House I fear for clubs like Peterborough 1- track availability due to other events at the showground 2- when the track is available will riders be available 3- with them been successful so far this season the Panthers could possible have a league playoff semi final and final, a semi final and final in the knockout cup and in the league shield completion 4- So if this does happen will the showground be available for these fixtures ,as we all know the British weather could intervene at anytime for these and other fixtures and will this cause chaos to the Panthers charge

    Rye House 2018

    The Somerset away fixture is now postponed , so I doubt the next home fixture will take place . For the good of Speedway can someone give a statement . If it was riders with holding there services There would be repercussions so come on some one make a statement and let the league move forward for the benefit of every promoter, manager , rider and supporters

    Injured Scorpions

    So guests again at Redcar away and Sunday at home v the Monarchs , Anyone clued on the conference league as a guest for Danny
  7. Does anyone know how our walking wounded are and when there expected back Stevie - broken leg stefan - broken leg jason - battered and bruised danny - concussion and other injuries Testing times when were needing an unattached rider to make our quartet up for the championship 4's today two meetings one away and one away this week ,followed by 3 away fixtures on consecutive nights the week after could well be season defining

  9. So pleased that the Scorpions went through, hopefully the next round we will be able to track all of our seven riders for a change instead of been our injured . The young yankee looks a good prospect for Sheffield and one last thing it’s a pity the Tigers going on about there choice of guest Richie hasn’t been in the best of form lately so I was surprised by there choice of guest rider so who does pick the guest is it Team Manager (Simon Stead) or the promoter ( Damian Bates ) ?????
  10. Amazing how Scunthorpe are been hit with the bad luck with crashes , injuries and bike failures . Early on all was well then Jason’s crash hope it’s not as bad as first feared , the lads dug in and we’re doing well Dimitri Berge was a very good guest and scored well , Jake Allen was holding the two tigers off for 3 1/2 laps then bike problems and a 4 pt swing. One last point one a club states it’s got a 10 pm curfew why racing continued after this time was it due to the Scorpions been depleted who knows . As for the 2nd leg I think Sheffield have enough points in the bag , hers hoping for an injury free night for both sides

    Rye House 2018

    I have visited Rye House 3 times this year as a neutral supporter here are my findings 1- everyone is friendly and welcoming 2- everyone welcome in the pits to a certain time 3-not bad Facilties 4- racing at times is first from the traps wins 5- very long drawn out meetings with me paying my money and seeing tractors for longer on the track , rather than 4 bikes 6 - crowds no bigger then my local track Scunthorpe but I’m sure with a lot more expenses to be paid out Moving forward Speedway has lost its identity with the set race nights also due to lack of fixtures . People like continuity and were some clubs ride at home one week and there next home fixture is in 3 weeks is not good enough,people especially families will find something else to do . Why if the tv company wants to show live speedway is the clubs not getting compensated for loss of revenue In a sport when I hear from riders and promoters costs are spiralling, let’s do something about this and bring in a semi standard machine etc , supporters prefer to see good close races were skill and team riding comes in to play rather than a gater winning by over half a lap Im just a supporter I don’t know the costs etc and the full facts but what I do know the product we have now is not working. So please the BSPA at the next meeting look after the best interests of British Speedway for the future of our sport in our country . If we lose some riders so be it and also the deal and rule changes what are needed to save our sport have to be in the best interests of all clubs and not the selective few Rant over and one last comment I hope Rye House can be saved and are back racing soon
  12. Any news on the guests and R/R for both sides in this quarter final for the cup .Rumours are guest for Stefan for the home leg any clues anybody

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2018

    Danny Phillips come into the side on an average just over 2 pts ,the side around him we're going to be the match winners as the way the team started off. He is going into that heat alongside Gino Manzares on a 5.8 average and usually against the two opposite reserves generally on averages of 4 pts . So generally most speedway races I've seen the higher average finishes first ,so we're don't people get behind Danny Phillips and stop bleating he is trying and he will get better he was out last year 9 months so as a spectator I see him trying and that will do for me ps how many of these keyboard warriors rode a speedway bike. Good Night
