  1. This is the thing that amazes me. This surely can't be something that has just happened before this meeting. That means the guys in league matches must have been racing under similar dangerous conditions. It's shocking that nothing has been done before now.

    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    Sorry for dragging things back a few pages, but I'm really intrigued to know how you think things work with Monster sponsored riders... Do you think that in 2016 Tai was told, "Sorry, mate, I know you're the World Champion, but it's Greg's turn this year." Then maybe last year Greg and Tai were both told, "Sorry lads, I know you have shared it around for the last 4 years, but we've signed up Patryk and we'd like a Polish winner, so just sit back and let him go for it." Is that kinda how you imagine it?

    Polish Transfers 2019

    From what tarkens said earlier, it sounds like they have their under 21 riders sorted with Wiktor Lampart and Wiktor Trofimov. I'm sure they'll be looking for big things from Lampart at least. As for Pedersen, all reports seem to be suggesting that he is headed back to Zielona Gora.

    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    As you probably already know, Erik is for me what Sam is for you, but you are spot on with your comments here. There was lots of talk around the 84 World Final about how it was very weak as a lot of the big names had been lost to the sport or were out injured...Penhall, Lee, Olsen, Carter and Sigalos are the ones that spring to mind but I'm sure there were others. Erik and Hans made that era their own, but it certainly wasn't the strongest period in speedway history.

    Polish Transfers 2019

    Unless they pull out a surprise signing, it's hard to see them getting too many points from reserve, though. They really need a big top 5 to be competitive.
  6. 15.2.6 was modified early in the season by supplementary regulation SR 1805. The revised wording was as below. 15.2.6 Only if a rider is at the Starting Gate with sufficient time remaining of the 2- minute allowance, be permitted to prepare their Start Area, provided they remain in full, personal control of their motorcycle, have their Cut – Out Lanyard attached, and with their motorcycle facing the direction of racing.

    What’s in a name ??

    You could say that the Scottish Monarchs was an example where it did work. It kept speedway running in Scotland for that year and made both sides realise they still wanted their own club...
  8. Don't they have to put the top 2 scorers in heat 15, meaning Bjerre couldn't have been used in heat 14?
  9. Thanks. You said exactly what I meant and saved me saying it
  10. As I've said many times in the past, I don't like a one off qualifying meeting to get into the series... luck of gates, or just a track a rider likes can make a big difference. Still, that's what we have and the top 3 deserve their places based on these rules.

    It didn't seem to matter with Coty
  12. Because the owners of Teterow are willing to pay what BSI want and the owners of Gustrow aren't?
  13. I had a similar issue when trying to buy tickets from ZG last year. I emailed their office who offered to put aside tickets which we could pick up on the day. As it turned out, one of the riders said he'd get us some complimentary tickets, so we didn't end up needing to do that. It did sound like that would have been an easy option if we had needed it, though.
  14. I'm not sure that was arrogance, I thought it was maybe more a lack of confidence in his gating. If he took gate 1 and was then outgated he'd be clamped into turn 1. Taking gate 3 gives options for running round the field or cutting back at turn 2.
  15. Based on his tweet, it would appear Craig was in Warsaw this morning...I wonder if he booked the 7:55 flight to Warsaw and then the 10:35 flight from there to Gdansk (which was cancelled) rather than the direct 7:55 flight to Gdansk. All very strange.
