    Somerset 2018

    Feel sad that this has happened and the way it happened. There are two sides to everything and I have read both on Facebook. If Somerset wanted to keep Wright, they would have tried to resolve the issues but after 6 seasons at Somerset, perhaps this has been building for a while. Always liked Charles and his brother and I hope he gets another team in the Premiership soon to help continue his progress - although he is part of a good Sheffield team in the Championship.

    Poole 2018

    Yes - but he was serving a ban!!
  3. Shocking performance from Swindon tonight against a team that hasn’t performed well at Blunsdon this year - until now! Having to use a TS at home against such a poor team just shows you can’t take anything for granted. Looks like the track preparation played a big part but RH deserved more than their 1 point.

    With Holder not riding this season - does that not mean he has to have a year out before re-applying for a visa - which is what I think happens with other Aussies. So it will be 2020 before he can ride here again?
  5. You don’t have to be an expert in track preparation to have the opinion that the track is impacting the quality of racing and crowd levels. It is down to the promoters to serve up a surface that allows great racing, great entertainment and for crowd levels to increase!
  6. No - but that’s not my point. He is a worthy British U21 champion and British Champion - he went through the card on Monday and fully deserved his win. That win alone shows there is no better British rider to support Woffinden. My point was that Woffinden was the star and Robert (ably) provided a supporting role.
  7. Robert did very well in the SoN and is having a good season but let's put it into perspective - he scored 8, 7 and 4 from the rides he had over the 3 days of the competition. I know he is U21 and those are good scores but they don't support the "big up" you are giving him about getting big offers thrown at him from all angles! I hope he does get the big offers but best to keep your feet on the ground for now.

    Belle Vue 2018

    Good signing - he looked good at the British Final. Surprised no one has snapped him up before now TBH. I know he is a bit wild and injury prone but you can't fault his commitment.

    Kings Lynn 2018..

    Congratulations to Robert Lambert - 18 point maximum and fully deserved British Champion crown.

    Light the blue touch paper!!
  11. Love him or loathe him but Tai was emperious last night - he was untouchable and team rode brilliantly. So glad he is riding for Team GB again. Felt sorry again for Cook - his only ride was off gate 4 and I would be surprised if he got a ride today because Tai and Robert look a good pairing. I certainly didn't expect Team GB to be leading at the half way stage - more of the same tonight please.

    All hail Matt Ford! For doing what should have been done properly first time round!
  13. Speedway fans ARE anoraks - who else would put up with the cr@p from the BSPA?

    Interesting that Klindt is getting a Poole race suit made (and looking for sponsors) - did he not get the memo about it being bibs this season at Poole?

    Poole 2018

    Or even Kai Huckenbeck
  16. And then he forks out loan fees for Worrall, Kildemand and Nielsen - seems odd with all those assets!

    No one wants any club to close but it is a sport dying on its @rse -unless there is some radical surgery
  18. That’s really working out well - don’t you think?
  19. Speedway of Nations? Can’t see it lasting long and not as good as World Team Cup. Total borefest packed with lesser riders!

    Poole 2018

    Surely not? If so, Starry can replace him as he seems to have been talking track preparation for most of the season

    Rye House 2018

    That’s really bad luck for the Rockets and Panthers and more so EK. Given the team vulnerabilities, I can’t see the Rockets going with guests. Ben Barker to replace him?

    Ok so Cook is a bit hit and miss and hasn't got the consistency yet for a top-level rider but he is in the SGPs on merit and easily qualified for this year's GP Challenge and deserves his place in Team GB SoN. If he can get his level of consistency to match his passion then he can expect a successful few years ahead.

    Poole 2018

    The way Klindt is riding at the moment in the Championship - he will fit in nicely in this team of under-achievers. Can't see him turning fortunes around but will maybe spur on a few others in the team!
