    I'm impressed. Wouldn't it be great to think that might be possible again someday? Sadly I fear not. My own claim to fame was two meetings in a day. Not very impressive you might think, but this was as a sidecar passenger. I was just finishing competing a day on the grass at Ugley in Essex when I got the call from another driver to jump on with him at Brandon. Now, you should know that at this point in time (2003) I was fairly new as a competitor. I had, however, been following the Bees for over 30 years and I'd never had the chance to race there before. This was my "field of dreams". Suffice it say that I spent most of the journey back from Essex ringing all my family and friends to get them to come and see me. The sad end is that although I continued racing for another 6 years, I never had another opportunity to race on the hallowed shale at Brandon. I've long since retired and my "field of dreams" is rusting away. But hey, I crossed the fence. And for the first 48 years of my life, I never imagined that might happen. Not in my wildest dreams. P.S. To keep this on subject, there ain't many that can say they raced at Ryan Sullivan's testimonial, at the showground.

    That's a real shame.

    Do you (or anyone) know how that works? I only ask, because Justin does have a Premiership average, but that dates back to 2017. When does such an "old" average fall out of the calculation?

    Thank you Daniel. I guess I'm struggling with where Justin Sedgmen's average is derived from?

    I'm sure the BSPL's style of maths is better than mine, but what are the Sheffield top 6 (i.e. without Josh Bates) starting averages?

    They'll be short now they've stopped using the AZ vaccine.

    Whats actually going on?

    I think the argument against running the NDL meeting first in recent times has more to do with the amount of shale (or lack of if) on the track. By the time the second meeting is run the track is like a badger's bum. This came to my notice when listening to interviews with junior riders who were used to racing after the seniors in double headers or second halves. I was surprised to hear these lads saying they would have to get used to riding with some shale on the track when they moved up to riding on a track earlier in the procedings.

    Your comments on this thread are ironic since Leicester did keep the same 7 senior riders for their Champonship team until they couldn't agree terms with Ellis Perks

    Oh come on. Let's go the whole hog and get rid of the existing fans and replace them with their grandkids.

    And there you you have the biggest frustration for all fans trying to make sense of rules. It's simple psychology. The BSPL / promoters keep the rules to themselves and then they wonder why social media makes up 10 reasons why they are the way they are. And those reasons are nearly always perceived to be unfair or self serving.
