    Earlier this year, it was mentioned that GM & Jawa were developing engines with better oil circulation to extend service intervals.

    NL AGM 2018

    Cheers for the clarification as I wondered about the Perks signing & announcing he had achieved a 5 point average in 2017.

    NL AGM 2018

    I thought I had read somewhere where certain riders could not get spots because of their average. I was not sure if he/she was surmising that these riders could not get spots because of the reduced team average or because of their own high average but what was posted was that a rider could not ride in the NL if he had achieved a 4+ average in the CL in the past even saying if it was 25 years ago. Was this a wind up post or is it true for 2019?

    Just the 3 teams that were affected by it!

    Having read the SS about some teams wanting a 40 limit probably pre AGM then voted on a 38 limit some teams might have been sorted. Some teams were then changed to allow for this to happen.

    Decent planning & communication over fixtures was normally in the hands of the fixture compiler but I read that last year it was down to the teams promotions. The original fixtures should NOT have been allowed as it was against what was proposed at the AGM & when problems arose in getting decent guests, some fixtures were cancelled & rulings applied to what was agreed at the AGM.

    It should be just British riders but the rule states ANY riders that has competed in the NL (NDL & Conference leagues, previously)

    It has also been stated that the increase in crowd levels were due to the amount of free tickets handed out. The were then hoping that these freebies would spend their money on food, drinks or merchandise.

    Workington 2019

    As far as I am aware, Jake Allen is a Somerset asset. After signing for us at the tail end of 2017, he was approached by a club to sign for them in '18 but he said that Scunthorpe gave him a chance in the PL so wanted to stay in 2018. After a great season in '18, he was, again, approached to sign for a club in '19 on which he again said no to stay at Scunthorpe. The dates of when he was approached, I do not know, but he was approached as will most riders. As regarding the asset system, I have seen it here & in the SS where a riders parent club, ie the one owning his registration, has 1st choice. It then goes to his last club he rode for & if they don't need him he then becomes open to offers but a club approaching him has to ask his parent club & last club before directly talking to the rider. But, as have known before, not just last year but previous years, rules are broken or manipulated.

    Jake Allen has said no & is loyal to the Scorpions for a second time.

    'cos riders will tell supporters what they want to hear.

    Pretty sure they do but why are riders STILL owed thousands from British & foreign clubs. This is NOT ONE MEETING NON PAYMENT so why is it allowed to continue. It was assumed that a few Workington riders were not paid on time but that was due to minimal home meetings at the start & mid season of which they eventually caught up with much success.
