    Speedway Promoter Game?

    Running the game using winevdm and everything is good apart from not being able to save my games. Any ideas? Am I missing something simple? Running Windows 7 Also tried downloading the 2020 update and can't get that to download properly either. I am not usually a techno dork but feeling like one now!
  2. All the results should be on the Scunthorpe Amateur Speedway group on Facebook. Richard Hollingsworth is very good at putting them on there.

    Wolves 2019

    Looked a lot more competitive on Monday even if his score doesn't reflect this.

    Ipswich v Kings Lynn May 6th 2.15pm

    Ht 2 Heeps definitely took Andersen's front wheel as he attempted the pass. Unbiased view from a youth parent. Stood by the gate on to the track near the first bend.

    Brummies v Rebels 17.04.19

    Rowe was never far away.gating and first bend left him a lot to do apart from heat 2. Big step up for both Rowe and Atkins but I think they can both develop quickly enough to cope, particularly against some of the lesser reserve pairings around.

    Brummies v Rebels 17.04.19

    Impressed with Grobauer and Atkins - not loads of points but always in the thick of the action. Atkins made a couple of excellent gates too.

    Cradley Heathens 2019

    Harry was at Scunthorpe. He was collected by another rider and speared towards the fence. Bike first raising the air fence then Harry hit next, bounced up a long way, did a somersault and landed very, very hard. He had a couple of nights in hospital but was allowed home yesterday. It was a horrific accident to see.
  8. Weymouth are certainly actively looking for a site.

    Poole 2019

    Why is a question a stupid comment? Can't hold a civilised debate can you? Would you like it in words of 2 syllables or less so you understand it? Grade A moron, go straight to the top of the class. Jeez, even Floyd could actually give reasons in his comments, not just spit the dummy because of a perfectly legitimate question asked.

    It was a question. I did not say that you accepted it, just asking. Not sure why the insult was needed though - just shows you up as a complete and utter bellend.

    Poole 2019

    He is the founder/owner of the company, slightly different to a random employee. A high profile figure that other companies may not want to associate with. Plenty of examples of things on social media being brought up from years ago and used against people, costing careers etc. And no I’m not crying nor have I said that Ford should cut all the ties with the company. I merely asked starman for his opinion.

    Poole 2019

    Think it’s you that needs to get with the times - whatever you think of what was said is irrelevant. It’s Poole’s other commercial partners that might not be too impressed to be associated ,by links with Poole speedway, with what was said. The rest of what you said is blah blah blah and has nothing to do with anything I said. Btw, read your last sentence and have a think...

    So you are ok with your club being associated, directly or indirectly, with a person who puts on social media about people drowning being acceptable? Because they are ‘a good sponsor’?

    Belle Vue 2019

    I know all about flint and his prospects having watched him in the youth championship over the last 4 seasons and at Birmingham this season and I agree that he should be in the NL. Regards the points limit, Belle Vue had 2 3 pointers this season so for them the limit hasn't in reality changed. They could have chosen to build differently to include Smith if they really wanted him which clearly they didn't. It is not solely the fault of the limit that has put Smith on the sidelines atm. If rider potential is a main factor for riding in the NL (should it be), then it could be argued that the league is not feasible as there are many, many riders with a similar or less of a future than Phillips - where is the line drawn?

    Belle Vue 2019

    Just using Halifax tiger’s assertion to that

    Belle Vue 2019

    With the reduction of the minimum average to 2 the colts had exactly the same number of points as last year for their top 5. They could have kept Smith rather than sign Flint who is equally as not connected to belle Vue as Phillips.

    Belle Vue Colts 2019

    Not sure jordie Palin will be overshadowed next season. Absolutely flying by the end of this season and beat flint and Edwards to win to the belle Vue round of the GB youth championship.

    NL AGM 2018

    As most teams last season had 2 three pointers at reserve, dropping the minimum average to two effectively makes the limit 38 so not a lot of difference. Guess it depends on the average given to those who were three pointers in 2018. Apologies if anyone has alreadymade this point.

    Leicester NL 2019

    Beaten Leon flint and others in the youth champs. Consistent podium places too. Always front runners in every round. Nailed on to hit 7-8 point averages at least.

    IOW V Mildenhall thur 16th aug

    Josh Bailey - wow! Some absolutely class moves last night. Some of the best passing moves I’ve seen all season.
  23. Snap. What does that first paragraph actually mean? 'read what I post without reading them first'. Maybe you could read what you post just to be sure it makes sense lol. I also have enough experience of the youth scene to feel able to have an opinion. If you have been around as much as you claim then we probably have seen each other. PS it's not going around in circles just because we have different opinions on how to reach the same point ie more British riders.
  24. As in he started off being not very good ie not qualifying for finals, just riding around as you put it then progressing to be better than his peers. Obviously the Thompsons haven’t gone as far as your friend but the basic principle is similar. Ask their dad, he chucked them into the gb youth champs very early and they were getting lapped regularly but hasn’t particularly done them any harm. Would still like to know your thoughts on where the cut off point is for the Championship?
  25. ‘Get rid of’ as in remove from the Championship. Thought that was obvious. Your story about the grass tracker you raced against- isn’t that basically the same as the Thompsons? The atmosphere at the youth champs is so good for all riders that there is very little pressure on any of the riders other that which they put on themselves, which is the way it should be even for the top riders (all of whom has been through some sort of learning curve in the championships). Yes there are a number of tracks that provide practice opportunities but I think you’ll find that the majority of them do not provide many youth racing opportunities - Scunthorpe are good as are Iwade/Lydd but not many others. A few tracks do demo races before and after meetings but tend to have a select few riders who take part. That the British Championship should be a different level - as I said before, where is the cut off point for this level? Same lap, within half a lap, same part of the track? The youth champs is growing in size every season and is now producing riders who are progressing through the ranks in bigger numbers, having kept the same philosophy as it has now. Give it a very few years and we will have your winners.
