    Cradley v Mildenhall

    i really no longer give a flying **** what people think of me..seen it..done it..and hardly regret a minute of my 40 odd years experience. However I will always defend kevin...nobody works harder at a promotion ..he works long long hours, passionately cares about his team and the sport in general. his knowledge of bikes, engines and riders is amazing, and to my experience has always acted in a totally honest way. People may not enjoy his approach, indeed at times that can be understood, but i would defend his name and reputation without question. His Financial honesty is without question, riders love Mildenhall because they get exactly what he promises them, he keeps his word, and his home spun logic is entirely praiseworthy Believe me being a Promoter is a thankless task..the old adage.."How do you make a small fortune at Speedway...you need to start off with a big one" People like Kevin jolly are few and far between, unlike many I would name...Mildenhall fans are lucky..and the really nice factor is that they do value and appreciate him James

    Mildenhall v Brummies NL Sat 9th Aug

    I know that everyone at Mildenhall sends their most sincere best wishes to both Sam woods and Tom Bacon. two of speedways most pleasant genuine guys. Both accidents were truly horrific and one can only imagine with horror what the result would have been without an air fence. We are hugely indebted to teh brilliant work of Jason Gillingham and his team of medics who were cool, calm and superbly professional. Initially we think that Sam woods has a broken arm and some minor additional fractures..bad enough, but Tom Bacon hit teh turn 1 air fence at full speed with no time to get the cut-out to cut down the speed impact. Initial diagnosis is possibly fractures in his back....as I said we wish both boys a speedy return to health. Our thoughts also go to their team colleagues, the management of the Brummies, and all fans . They have had a dreadful season with injuries, and they have our respect for some great matches this season. Not the Saturday evening we were all looking forward to. James

    Colts v Mildenhall

    That is exactly what happened. It was a superb meeting, well run, well organised, on a great racing track..well done Andy Meredith...no sides gave an inch, but all riders took part in teh right, competitive spirit. Belle Vue has always been a name where it has always been a pleasure to take part. thank you Adrian, Lemo, Andy and everyone for making us welcome and providing all supporters with a fine advert for Speedway JAMES

    Vaclav Verner

    Vaclav was as about as hard and single minded on the track as would anyone from the "old Eastern Europe" However a nicer, more friendly amusing and warm human being it would be hard to find He was at Peterborough with us at one stage and was universally popular. Vaclav was a wonderful friend and i for one will miss that huge smile. James
