    Not at all! With all that is going on, I do not want to make a call too early & then receive two of the same weeks publication. How much extra would this cost Pinegen & then our subs go up. As I was typing this, a knock on the door, the postwoman delivers my post including this weeks SS and a small parcel from Amazon which was due to be delivered between 3-12 December!

    Stadium Design

    The straights & stands are at the Northern & Southern parts of the stadium. On my one & only visit when it first opened, the area, as said, was to be multi sports & the whole area was on a good slope. The layout, with bends at the eastern & western parts of the area, was the only way the stadium would fit, I imagine.

    Treble ditto although, just lately, mine has been on a Friday but caught postwoman yesterday & she said not sure what is going on! Yes, annoyingly.

    Godfrey's 16

    It has been said that the promoters have been having Zoom time meetings during the covid19 situation so I would surmise that all would have had some input in these discussions. http://www.speedwaygb.co.uk/news.php?extend.38468 Have some of you actually read the statement? It says that there could be team changes! We know Leicester COULD be making a change because of the situation with Perks sponsors. It also says it is his OPINION so not a rule or regulation.

    Sorry if this sounds a bit thick(ish) but wouldn't the long stroke push the piston into the cylinder head. Thought it would be the other way round.
  7. Looking at that side on view, look at how far some are away from the tapes, thus allowing movement before the tapes are raised. I like it in Poland - NO MOVEMENT or out!

    I would not say that that it was a lack of ambition by British riders but more of a convenience & set up caused by covid. Would Rowe have based himself in Poland if he was still racing in Britain. The lack of racing in Britain, this year, has allowed youngsters, with family & pit crew, to go to the odd weekly meeting abroad. This would not have happened if there was regular racing in Britain.

    Old points system GP results

    Go back to the old(2019) system of all point scoring but a little tweak to the semi's & final. 4-3-2-1 in the semi's rewarding all riders that reached them providing they finish & 8-6-4-2 for the final with similar rule in place.

    The Smell

    Slightly away from the "smell" part of the topic but with using so much oil over a season, could it be recycled by the riders or teams. I used to work on a paint spraying facility & we used a 2 pack paint but with a 6 point filter system before its final spray. Could the oil be filtered through a sieve/cloth type filter then a large sponge filter to collect metal finings over a period of time.

    It is a PAIRS event! What is the point of a teams no1 going out & winning all his races if his partner finishes last.

    Not with an "every race counts" system.

    Could Tai be involved in the pits as a coach/mentor or are numbers still limited?

    500/1 from what I remember.
