    But where does this leave the Buster Bundisliga ? Think that gets the message over!

    Well done the S.C.B.

    IF we have the full story and I was in the manager's position I would tell the SCB to stuff their sport. EDIT:- I am not surprised but a lot of extra information about what happened has now surfaced which proves there is more to this situation than the original post mentions. What the SCB are guilty of is a total lack of transparency which has backfired, as it often does. If the full story had been detailed by the SCB in this case and others then they would have avoided a lot of annoyance directed towards the SCB by those who care about the sport.

    Would that committee be composed of Buster, Rob Godfrey and Matt Ford? They always work in the best interests of the sport!
  4. Exactly, so the BSPA website had no excuse for taking as long as it did before acknowledging the meeting was taking place. I bet they would not be so slow advertising the PLRC if the venue had to be changed! They just treat the National League very badly all the time instead of treating all the leagues as equal.
  5. The club must have been given permission to run this meeting and I would have thought that the permission would have come from the BSPA. So the BSPA right hand needs to talk to the BSPA left hand!
  6. I am not impressed by the BSPA website (what's new!). Over two hours ago Scunthorpe announced this information but the BSPA website has not put the news up on the front page or added the fixture to the fixture list on the front page. Anyone would think the website is only for the top two leagues with the National Developement League regarded as unimportant. The fact that the NDL is the future of the sport seems to have been missed by those in charge which is further proof why they are not suitable for running the sport. I hope Scunthorpe have a good crowd for this meeting and wish all the riders a safe meeting with lots of close racing.

    My memory is not the best but I think in the early days of Mildenhall there was a small training track near the small main track.

    It is called "thread drift"! Happens everywhere.
  9. I would think 22 heats and then a final to give 23 races.

    It is very unusual for a car meeting on a tarmac or concrete track to be cancelled but meetings at shale track do suffer from the weather in the same way as speedway although a heavy shower during the meeting is less likely to be a problem for the cars.

    Leicester 2019

    Leicester must rate as top club of the year in UK Speedway. Top of the league in both the Championship and the National Development Leagues. We'll done to the Lions and the Cubs.
  12. Sorry, I only saw the tweet as being about the CLRC and did not read the last bit. But after you posted that people were still saying the Newcastle match was on other dates so I was hoping to confirm the correct date. Just trying to help. I will stop making that mistake here!
  13. According to Sheffield and BSPA websites the match is on Wednesday 11th September.

    No mention on the website yet! Was it announced last night?

    Well done Warriors, now to repeat that away from home and there could be more action at Smallbrook this season!
