    British Speedway statement

    In my (humble) opinion the ONLY individual I would entrust to running this sport would be ADRIAN SMITH who is at B.Vue. Smart of mind, intelligent, erudite, has business acumen, impressive when dealing with possible major sponsors,TV, media...great qualities which currently very sadly lacking.

    National League 2021 - has it been abandoned?

    The NL was (in my opinion) deliberately dismantled by 2 individuals who had their own agenda. It was the ONLY league which was 80% solvent...Len Silver warned his fellow promoters about this..backed up by Barry/Martyn and myself..Now look where we are There are many many riders out there who can "put on a show"..they have been discarded..and in my personal opinion time will show how much damage to the sport in this country has been caused by these misguided actions. It is not too late to totally refigure the League structures..almost too late ,,but it needs a brave far seeing group to seriously re-structure the leagues. fans are not interested in speeds..how much is spent on engines,clutches,tyres to make the sport quicker..and more expensive and subsequently less entertaining..Equally they don't want a sport of "wobblers"..There is a medium....All riders should be contracted through the holding company...teams constructed like Denmark of graded riders.racing against riders of equal grading from stars/medium/juniors...and 3 races at the end of a meeting on a similar basis We have to start somewhere...sooner rather than later

    Philip Rising R.I.P

    Phil was a great journalist. H was a man who didn't suffer self serving short sighted "johnny cum lately"..hence his contempt of the recent governership of British speedway. We were friends for 40 odd years..always great company and he was actually very shy .# An evening in his company along with Frosty..Oaksie, Scoop, Scotty, Clarkie, Mike Patrick, Terry, Briggo, Ole, etc..magical.. Rest well my Sarasota golfing mate...you were a class act Jimbo x

    Leicester vs Poole 24 July 2021

    With all the space available, t is possibly the worst designed track of recent years. there were no restrictions, an entirely blank page...

    Why speedway is failing

    Added to that it simply isn't entertaining and not good value for money...In USA you get over 30 races..loads different ages..bikes..a great nights value and only $15..just over £10...the answer is reasonably sensible..but needs courage and intelligence

    Wroclaw 2021

    We will NOt be taking the risks with Wroclaw. There remains some doubt on attendance restrictions...but with the delightful femme fatale in control in Berlin, there remain huge doubts about quarantine on arrival throughout Europe. Already similar restrictions exist in Sweden & Denmark. If..and it is a BIG IF..the new covid gets hold in mainland Europe you would imagine that more severe restrictions may well occur.....makes everyone glad that we have been so successful in our vaccine programme.

    Whats actually going on?

    That would be a clear case of "Restriction of Trade"...totally illegal under UK law...for many years British Speedway has lived in fear of a rider or an outside interest testing the whole system in the courts.... every rider is self employed and cannot be restricted where he can sell his skills.

    Witches v Stars 3rd June

    2021 GP Series Dates

    I doubt it very much...I would think July at best
  16. Hotel prices for an event date are like Turkeys at Xmas...the hotels are in business entirely to make money..they are not a charity, and whatever you think, had you owned one your attitude would be exactly the same. A room when the Rugby International is on can be in excess of £700 plus breakfast.

    ICE 2021

    Is there any chance that Assen will return to Ice Racing ??
  22. spiegal


    Extremely kind of you....but to get anything radicle through..it needs a degree of understanding, patience and forward thinking within the congregation.

    There was an old adage in Speedway years ago...you make your own stars within 2 months....Always listen to what your customer wants..imo people want 1. Entertainment. 2. Value for money 3. racers not riders..4. decent toilets and food. 5. team members who are yours and neither borrowed or racing for another uk team. 6. A Team..not made up of seven people whose name you can't even pronounce. 7. get rid of race times..it impresses nobody and puts nobody on the gate 8. Standardised equipment..Obviously riders wouldn't like it..but if it saves money they will quickly come round...9. Never let the tail wag the donkey..10. The NL concept is the road map.....entertainment again..
  24. Anyone got any possible news on likely 2021 in czech please ?
