    Buxton

    Two or three years ago the NL agreed to do just at the AGM that but it went out of the window as soon as everyone left!!

    Cant see that happening as the NL clubs don't pay the 'entry' fees that the Premiership and Championship clubs do. An independent chairman is a good idea in principle but who is going to fund this?

    The league that we entered 25 years ago is unrecognisable today and in my opinion has lost its way. The problems started from our point of view when the NL was formed and costs doubled overnight. Since then Eastbourne and Birmingham dropped down as they couldn't sustain the costs of the leagues that they were in and their costs must have more than halved but they have mostly retained the support so financially must be better off. Lakeside also did a season which added to the bigger clubs in the league and pushed costs up. Riders demands are increasing at an impossible rate for clubs like ourselves and Kings Lynn. The league is now, more than ever, an extension of the Championship with riders asking and getting £25-£30+ per point with tyres, fuel, oil, racesuits and mechanic wages in addition. Riders expect to be paid a wage for NL speedway and we can't compete with that. Most if not all other forms of motorsport are pay to enter. There are less riders to go around as a number are injured or have walked away from the sport and the up and coming riders from the Youth scene invariably go to the highest bidder. It becomes harder each year to field a team and the pay rates in the NL must have an impact on the leagues above. It seems that some NL clubs want the cheaper alternative of NL racing but want to be a professional league which understandably doesn't sit well with the higher leagues who are paying far higher rates to stage speedway.

    Buxton v Brummies Sun 29th Ap NT

    Just to update you I was given a letter yesterday from the Stockcar promotion from a Birmingham fan who I am presuming is you. This letter was sent to the track which has no postal access or anyone on site to accept mail and is reliant upon the postman redirecting it to either ourselves or the Stockcars. If it is yourself then I will be processing the cheque today and posting it and perhaps you can take some responsibility for the delay.

    Buxton Vs Cradley (NT) 27/05/2018

    Corban fractured his wrist at Stoke last week but made the effort to come to Buxton today. Wallinger turned up and then went home apparently ill.

    So you are calling me a liar. I don't know anything about you and you certainly don't know anything about me. As I have said the requests that I have received I have processed.

    I have not lost any correspondence and incidentally you cannot lose something you never had. As for the dog ate my homework cant say that ever happened to me. Its amazing how the 'keyboard warriors' make a comment and it becomes fact. Why would I single him out I don't even know who he is. As I have said the requests I have had I have processed and any others I receive will be dealt with.

    That is a libellous comment and I note that you are not even prepared to put your name to your comments. As for informing the BSPA then that's fine as I have done nothing wrong. We have had plenty of people use their tickets at other meetings as they are quite rightly entitled to do. You could have scanned them and emailed them or sent them registered post, again it was your choice not to.

    I have only received two requests for refunds both of which were sent last week, one was from Brian Buck and the other from a lady in Coventry.

    As previously stated anyone with an admission ticket from yesterday can either use it at any Buxton meeting this season or apply in writing for a refund. This is standard policy at all tracks that are members of the BSPA. Belle Vue's policy has been quoted in an earlier post and applauded as being correct, this is the same policy that we all have to adhere to - Buxton included. I think I have made it very clear that we didn't agree with how things were handled yesterday and yes I was very unhappy as I still am. I have not said that I would not issue refunds although I did say that refunds weren't given on the day which again is standard procedure. I don't have a problem with a meeting being called off ( I have been to plenty of them myself both as a supporter and an official) providing it is done in the correct manner. I have also been to meetings where there has been a delay either before the start or during it for track work. Unfortunately neither the referee or certain parties within the Birmingham camp were prepared to allow this to happen. The saddest thing about the whole affair is that there was little or no interest in this meeting until it was cancelled.

    Please contact www.buxtonhitmen.co for the details as I cannot provide my address on a public forum and you will receive a refund on your admission costs.

    Everyone gets their admission fee refunded either by using their ticket again or requesting a refund.

    The plan is set by the BSPA not individual clubs and is standard throughout the sport.

    It was your riders that convinced the referee to change his mind. Nothing wrong that a few heats wouldn't have fixed.
