  1. Is the ruling ( I stand to be corrected ) not about what position the riders are in but more so that if the referee deems the falling rider did not make a proper attempt to clear the track. If your knocked unconscious he probably had a pretty good excuse. Its to try and stop riders who fall at the back when they are getting 1-5d and just staying down for a re run I believe.
  2. If you had seen him in the pits afterwards you would have understood why he didnt clear the track ;-) he didnt even know he was in Newcastle for a long time and asked his mechanic after about 20 minutes what had happened and where had he crashed. It was worrying to see him sitting in his chair with the lights on but no one at home.

    Redcar v Glasgow 17/5/18

    I watched his first meeting at Peterborough and he beat Nichols in heat 1. Then in his 2nd he was on a 5-1 with Barker when he flipped coming out of the corner and suffered some internal damage. He then struggled for a few weeks with injury and his engines just were not performing. Sent them off to SWR before last weeks Julie Lewis meeting and I think we have all now seen what the lad is capable of. Could easily be in a heat leader role before long.

    Redcar v Glasgow 17/5/18

    The racing at STMP since Terry took over the track duties at the start of last season has been second to none. Yep the team has been struggling so far this season but thats also got something to do with every away rider relishing the prospect of racing at Redcar. Last night as you say was Speedway right out of the top drawer.

  6. If Stewart is at reserve he will do well tonight as Scunny dont have the strongest reserves around. Ive already seen enough to know he has the talent and just needs a bit of time to get used to British Racing. The kid beat Nichols around Peterborough and was getting a 5-1 in his next race before looping it out of turn 4. He has had a couple of big offs and is feeling it a bit injury wise. Give him a bit of time and he will defo be a huge club asset in the future

    Newcastle 2018

    1000 Miles, 3 Meetings, 3 days The weekend ahead could be a major make or break one for Josh Embleton as he embarks on three race meetings in three days. This might not sound like anything out of the ordinary to a lot of Speedway riders and fans alike but when the meetings are about as far apart as they possibly could be in England then you will recognise the task ahead for the likable Geordie. On Thursday Josh will head off for the 7 hour drive down to the Isle of Wight where he will be making his seasonal debut guesting in the National League against Eastbourne. Then he will get the ferry back over and head for Plymouth for another meeting on Friday night again for Isle of Wight. His travelling does not stop their though with a return drip up North and on to Berwick for Newcastle Gems meeting against Berwick Border Raiders awaiting him on Saturday evening. 1000 miles will be covered over the three days and also two days unpaid from work. This all will have to come out of Josh’s pocket with points money and travelling expenses not covering the costs involved. This young promising rider is chasing his dream and this just shows what lengths he will go to for the chance to fulfill it. If any businesses / individuals would like to sponsor Josh we at team nopainnogain would very happily display your logos on our website and of course on Josh race bike etc. This lad is making a huge sacrifice for this trip and it would be brilliant if his fellow Geordies could support him in any way which they could. Good luck Josh and we will all be rooting for you. http://teamnopainnogain.co.uk/ paypal donations - gavin.parr@sky.com
  8. I do wonder myself ;-) not used to wearing shorts and t shirt for meetings lol
  9. The sun is shining and its derby day. Should be a cracker of a meeting in lovely conditions. Redcar are without Jonas B and Newcastle without Rose. Both guests will not weaken the sides at all so its got the makings of a good one. Afterwards Cubs v Gems. Stay behind as your support would be most appreciated.

    Fingers crossed the forecast for the week ahead is to warm up and the sun to shine. Desperately ( like most others clubs ) need a break in this weather so Kev and co can get everything sorted in time for Press and Practice day .
  12. Great weekend and loved my first ice speedway experience. Guess the only downside is the 20 minute delay after every 4 races for the work on the track. On Saturday night the temperature was so cold it certainly started to get through the 5 layers towards the end. I know this has to be done to allow the riders a safe surface to race on I would just of hoped they could maybe have more machines to get the job done quicker. Wont be my last ice speedway experience thats for sure.
  13. How close can you get to the pits before racing / warm up starts ? Would just like to see what the bikes are like up close. Cold temperatures we can dress for, planes not getting us there we cant do much about lol. Fingers firmly crossed and hopefully see you on curve 1
