  1. I would never dare say that, I just nip into a studio and blether about speedway for an hour every week. There’s no illusions of stardom haha
  2. I normally avoid posting on this forum these days due to the incessant nonsense that is posted continuously by some and this thread is no different to that ( nice to see Ian and George now they have been replaced as main photographers in the West by the excellent young Taylor chipping in having not been in attendance) However a few things to clear up from last night 1- yes the track was prepared with too much grip on it at the start of the meeting that can not be denied however this was not intentional but a misreading of the conditions 2 these conditions were not directly involved in the cause of the monarchs injuries, I will concede that they were the indirect cause of Joel’s as he slid off due to the difficulty in turning in heat 2 but it was the fact he got hit by Zach W that caused his injury (zero fault of Zach’s btw), victor’s fall he gated level with the two hammers tried to throttle off to move inside then realised he was to far into the corner throttled back on and the bike took off on him causing him to bail out. 3 if the track was so bad and no one was attacking it then why was there a sub 55 second time and multiple sub 56 second times all within 2.5 seconds or so of the track record 4 the delay caused by Joel’s injury allowed track grading to be done and from there on in the track was perfectly rideable and the riders that attacked it got their rewards.Including Lakeside riders, haven spoken to 5 of the riders involved in the meeting last night (2 Edinburgh and 3 Lakeside) they all said the same, the track was difficult to start with but was more than raceable a season the meeting progressed. 5 At no point did Erik say the track was ‘very dangerous’ he said it was to grippy to start with which was dangerous as mentioned above this was alleviated by the re-run of heat 2 though I’m not saying last night was a good meeting as it was pretty poor all told but this was not down exclusively to the track conditions. it takes 2 teams to make a good meeting and increasingly over the last few weeks awaybteams appear to be defeated by their attitude before a wheel is turned. It strikes me it’s never the monarchs that come away from a meeting home or away complaining win lose or draw we have guys that go everywhere and get on with it, other teams could do with a bit of the same not to mention the fact that the makeup of our team since the introduction of Richie and Victor we basically have a top 5 who are all heatleader calibre at the Dale that is why we are turning teams over.
  3. Looking forward to this tonight, last time he was at a Armadale Archie Freeman was worth the cost I admission for his second half rides so more of the same tonight hopefully
  4. What would you have suggested as the other course of action then? Refuse to ride wasting the time of all who had made the effort to arrange to travel and costing Workington a call off they can’t afford? The outcome of the meeting has no bearing on the appeal if the Monarchs won they would have carried on with it as quite frankly answers are required as to why a Workington have been allowed to declare an inelligible 1-7.
  5. 100% incorrect. The appeal has to and was placed prior to the start of the match as per the procedures for this kind of thing.

    Not sure it’s that difficult really. Last season there were 2 price points one for buying online upto the day before and then the pay at the gate price. This year those remain but the same has been added for Bluecards so those coupled with the other benefits of the blue card such as prize draws for hospitality, reduced rates on tickets to other monarchs events etc make the blue card a no brainer for anyone who can’t commit to the season ticket gold card.

    It’s dependent on how you buy your ticket for example blue card holders who pre book online will pay less than blue card holders who pay at the gate. Full admission prices will be released shortly as far as I’m aware.

    Hopefully the changes have the desired effect. When Ashfield first opened it was one of the best tracks in the country then unfortunately changes had to be made due to the football and it was never quite the same.

    Live updates for all matches home and away will be available on the Monarchs website and I believe the chatzone chatroom will still continue this season to allow for people to chat as meetings are ongoing

    Nobody has to tell us anything on here but the rule book does state that the parties to the appeal will be given the outcome in writing with reasons for the decision on this instance that has not happened so the BSPA are in breach of their own rule book

    Not quite Grachan it’s more like Edinburgh attempted to sign a rider that does not automatically qualify for a visa but that they felt did qualify under the discretionary rules (posted earlier in the thread) Edinburgh then built their case with testimony from Steve Evans, Greg Hancock and the UKVI BSPA management committee rejected the appeal (as is their right) BSPA neglected their own rules that state that the outcome of an appeal with reasoning will be provided to the relevant parties. Therein lies the gripe and where the accusations of bias come in as there has been no transparency and the reasoning for the rejection is yet to be received.

    Why then did the UKVI say he met their criteria, the same criteria the management committee say they have rejected the appeal based on?
