    Swindon 2019

    Hi Glenn, Why not have a word with David or James at TP and see if they can arrange something for you........I'm sure they'd be happy to help!
  4. Ipswich were quoted to be looking at bringing in a European rider, and it was hinted that there were deals to be done. Maybe Peterborough make pursue one of those options and bag a new 'asset' into the bargain?

    Workington 2019

    They certainly used to lift the turf at Wembley to expose the speedway track back in the day.
  6. Surely, that same reasoning should apply to the Peterborough promoters too?
  7. Just playing Devils' Advocate here without suggesting this is the case, but maybe Chris Harris asked for more money than was originally agreed?

    riders not signed

    Do you feel a bit silly now?

    Kings Lynn 2019

    Five in the league and two in the cup.

    Ipswich 2019

    You are right, but I was trying to point out that the top riders can still be attracted to Britain.

    Ipswich 2019

    Martin Vaculik was up for it last year before he got injured at Swindon.

    Kings Lynn 2019

    That's not true though is it..........the holiday brochure was an addition to the magazine, and did not affect the size or content in any way.

    Ipswich 2019

    Maybe, just maybe, Chris Louis is using his Polish contacts to entice a decent #1?

    AGM November 2018

    Has this been confirmed, as I've not seen any official reference to it?

    Panthers up for sale.

    Any rule can be amended at the upcoming BSPA Conference.

    AGM November 2018

    This has been the attitude of many of the promoters for a few years now, and one of the main reasons for the demise of Speedway in GB. NO fan has a DUTY to support any team or any sport........and any team or any sport that thinks they have is in dangerous waters!!!

    Poole 2019

    Luke is hardly starting out is he........he has plied his trade in the States, which is the reason most British tracks would welcome him!! I'll let you into a little secret..........tight technical tracks are pretty common in California, so your valued advice seems to have been heeded. Having witnessed Luke on his home tracks, my opinion is the best choice of track for him in Britain (should he choose to ride here, which is far from forgone) would be Sheffield!!!

    lakeside 2019

    Why didn't you just arrive earlier?
  19. Jon Cook and Stuart Douglas have been looking for a new home for the Hammers for a while now..........let's hope there is some positive news to follow.
  20. The track is like that as that is the way Len Silver prepares it. With some investment, Kent could house a track on par with the best in Poland if it was laid outside of the current circuit.
  21. Of course not! I suggested earlier in the thread that "Kent" may be a viable option, and there could be a good argument made for a switch to Oxford. Whatever transpires, you can be sure it won't be Jon Cook's gamble, it will be Stuart Douglas calling the tune........and he was introduced to the sport at Rayleigh. The Rockets that captured Stuart's imagination as a kid, eventually moved into Rye House and made that their permanent home for many years........history could repeat itself, but in my opinion the move to the other side of The Thames would be a much better business decision. I guess we'll all have to play the waiting game?

    Edinburgh 2018

    He rode 13 matches for Belle Vue in the upper league and 18 for Edinburgh in the lower league in 2010........he had no official meetings in 2011, or since.

    Dave Gooderham

    A brilliant little rider on his day. He made an immediate impact at Canterbury when he arrived on loan from Ipswich back in the day. So sorry to hear this........RIP Dave, and thanks for the memories.
  24. I was just playing devils advocate.......I have no idea what the answer is, or even if there is one!!
  25. Just a thought, but if the rest of the season had meaningful meetings (i.e. not play-off qualifiers), crowds could be increased in twelve (not two) meetings throughout the season :/
