  1. Wouldn't worry too much about the line up for Saturday night. The line ups for 2017 & 2018 weren't wall to wall stellar names, but really well balanced & the racing on both occasions was top drawer. No rain due in Manchester for the foreseeable, expecting another class meeting, get yourselves down there.

    Belle Vue Colts 2019

    Really looking forward to seeing this Colts team in action, looks an ideal blend to me. Think Bickley & Flint will push each other along for the no. 1 spot, looked like the banter about that had already started last night between those two at the fans meeting.

    Sheffield 2019

    Really like the look of this Sheffield team. Powerful top 3, exciting youngsters + real x-factor in the shape of Drew Kemp. Will certainly make a trip or two across from Manchester to watch this side, especially now you're racing Sunday's. Good luck to Steady & all involved.

    Belle Vue 2019

    Sad to read that Tungate has been released, though it was always likely to happen on that average. Really entertaining round the NSS, his pairing with Bewley in particular was dynamite & a joy to watch. If you had a top 10 list of races round there in 2018, he'd certainly feature in a few of those. The speed he could generate off that 4th bend was amazing & that move he'd pull shocked a fair few opponents for sure! Wish Rohan well & hope he gets a club soon.

    Torun 2018

    Great shout R&R. Bar Szwejk is another one in the Rynek (close to the donkey statue). In between those two there's Bar Kuranty, if you like speedway celeb spotting then you'll see a few in there. Decent pint of Guinness in there too, as well as the lovely Polish lager.
  6. Congratulations to the Rebels, all 7 of them chipping in with valuable contributions to see them home. Great to see Cookie showing real speed, looked relaxed & smooth on the bike pulling off some great passing moves. That heat 13 was simply brilliant, well worth a look! Heat 15 wasn't too shabby either. Thoughts now turn to this coming Monday.....

    Torun 2018

    Great to hear it's gonna be a full house, in that case it may be a good idea for folk not to leave getting in the stadium til the last minute. I did just that in 2016 (having lost track of time in the huge beer tent) & it was a bit chaotic at the turnstiles to say the least! A mate of mine tried the expensive VIP type tickets last year, & he was a bit underwhelmed by them to be honest. I got my ticket a while back, "sektor gosci", end of the back straight, under 20 quid, great view of the racing there too, would definitely recommend.

    If you're still to secure a room for the Saturday night in Torun, keep an eye on your favourite hotel booking website site for the odd room becoming available last minute (presumably due to late cancellations). I've been playing a waiting game across the summer, finally secured a room that's a 2 minute walk from the old square - & not at a crazy price either that other establishments are asking for! Just 3 weeks to go, can't wait, see you's out there!

    Where is SCB

    Blimey! Must admit I'd wondered what had happened to him posting on the forum. I hadn't seen that thread before. Thanks for posting link R&R.
  11. To echo other Aces fans, the fixed nights have hit us hard crowd wise. Not only overall numbers, but to me the number of kids seems lower than last year when we ran on Fridays. We have to go back to Friday nights, better for grown ups at the end of the working week, & kids too where the parents don't have to worry about them getting up for school the next morning. Back to tonight, an absolute privilege to watch that match in the flesh, full-on commitment from both sides, thrilling! Look forward to watching it back on TV tomorrow. Hope Doyle's OK too, looked an awkward off from where I was.

    Colts vs Kings

    Excellent performance from the Colts, Wilson a more than worthy stand in for Bickley. Tom Perry was great to watch, revelling on the "Max Fricke" line, inches from the air fence. Good to see Smithy back to form too. The pie-man Bowen again performed well, his interviews were fun, the guy's daft as a brush, clearly well liked by fans, team and management alike. No lack of effort from the Kent lads, Stoneman in particular was probably trying too hard, which almost resulted in him catching Perry's back wheel in one race. Just a word on heat 13, brilliant race, Smith & Perry v Morley & Clegg served up a treat in that one!

    Colts vs Kings

    Glorious afternoon, looking forward to some close racing tonight & a close scoreline too. Decent guest choices from both sides, going for a narrow Colts win 47-43.
  14. Please accept my apology for my post being too Belle Vue--centric for you. Of course I feel for Worky too & their fans who are affected by last night's events, a club we enjoy a good relationship with. Surprised I need to explain myself, but just for you Iain I have.
  15. Tonight a reminder that the playoffs & trophies, though very nice, aren't the be all & end all of speedway that some would have you believe. Watched Bewley from the start in 2016, unassuming kid with phenomenal talent. Starts 2018 at reserve & beating heatleaders home & away, mostly from the back too. He's the heartbeat of our club imo, get well soon Dan.
