  1. Can see the Tigers hitting somewhere between 55 and 60 tonight, unfortunately.
  2. Kings Lynn 2018..

    Tsssk Trees, Tomek Gollob Tomek !!
  3. Edinburgh 2018

    I would suggest that it's a great idea (the Blue/Gold cards) to value current fans (particularly getting their contact details), however the pricing structure doesn't do much to entice new people through the door.
  4. Surely a better solution can be found to this ? Why not for example only allow riders who ride solely in UK the opportunity to double up ? Or subject to a maximum of 1 other league ? This would get around any discrimination issues basing it on being a British rider as this condition would be applied to any nationality. I'm sure there are other workable alternatives out there, but certainly it seems for 2018, they aint budging. Are riders still allowed to ride in all 3 leagues in the UK ? Now that's bonkers imo.

  5. Don't you know the song, "There's only one Lukasz Sowka" ?
  6. Further additions I've seen Krystian Pieszczek Victor Kulakov Vadim Tarasenko Patrik Buri (Slovakia) Dominik Moser (German 19 yo) Lukasz Sowka Emil Grondal
  7. As TDM says, check http://www.speedway-forum.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=85414 5pm start, 20zl entry, 10zl concessions/ladies Would arrive a bit earlier as there were big queues for tickets at start time last year as they only opened the grandstand to start with. Don't expect Bydgoszcz GP standard racing for your 20zl but you might see a couple of rough diamonds and some riders you'll never have a chance of seeing again. Rico
  8. In My View By Phil Rising

    Shakes head, if only you'd got it up to 88mph, it would have been a different outcome ! Rico
  9. Cook becomes a Dudek fan for the rest of the season me thinks. Well done!!!! Rico
  10. Robins V Lions...3/8

    My first trip along the m4 for a while and glad I went. Meeting had a bit of everything and the racing was better than I have seen on most of my previous visits to the Abbey. Best move of the night probably Nicholls cutting through the Swindon pair on bend 4. Good to catch up with JD. Rico
  11. Heartily concur. I'm guessing that whoever reported him to the SCB decided he was the only one that could/should be punished. Would that have been the referee reporting him for missing rides on two minutes or would it have come from another source ? I can only assume that it wasn't the referee, otherwise anyone failing to make the two minute time allowance twice in a meeting has a potential 28 day ban hanging over them. Why weren't Lambert and Huckenbeck given the same sanction for refusing to race in heat 9 ? Because they only missed the two minutes once and came out and rode again? Holder came out for a TR ride after his first 2 minute exclusion iirc. I can only conclude that someone has used their influence to sanction a punishment on Holder, which I think is an abuse of their position. Rico
