    Scorpions v Berwick 17.08.18 7.30pm

    With Steve riding Wednesday & Thursday & Jason now guesting for Sheffield Thursday(I don't know if any of our other riders are guesting), fingers crossed that both come through unscathed & we can have, eventually, our original 1-7 back together. Gino had a spin Saturday, hopefully with a new or re-built engine & I hope Stefan has had another spin. Berwick's strength in depth worries me as they seem to fill in minor places & score well in the reserve department. We need our 1-5 to hit them hard with 5-1's & 4-2's with our reserves chipping in, hopefully, around 7 or 8 & that should be enough. Weather looks to be fine, not too hot, so should be an excellent race track with not many races ftg or by end of bend 2 on 1st lap. Here's hoping. Up The Scorpions

    I agree with you on your 1st point not knowing if it has anything to do with the International Speedway Calendar Body(or whatever they are called) but Poland have 1st call followed by Denmark & Sweden then Britain. I think prioritising the registration should come in to place as when a rider first registers to a team, irrespective of league or country, they should be the 1st option. Money or highest payers or fining of riders for non appearance should not come in to it. The other 3 leagues have the ability to use more riders having squads so they should be forced to use them.

    Edinburgh 2018

    There were new rules put in place this year due to the reduced fixture list & new averages was one of them. A rolling average was based on last 30 meetings at the start of the season & reduced by 2 per month. This is where some average anomalies may have occurred. We had Steve Worrall's average at 9.13 at start of the season, reduced to 9.06 in June then increased to 9.17 when he did not ride.

    Championship Shield

    Quote After initially saying we couldn't race on Friday because too many teams were racing on that night, they agree to half a season's worth of fixtures instead, then, having seen how dangerous we've become, they pull the rug out and make us rearrange meetings with teams whom have a vested interest in not putting themselves out of contention by fielding a weak side at DP outside of their best laid plans? Taken from Workington Speedway website The Workington Comets race in British Speedway's Championship league, most Saturday evenings from late March to October at 7:00pm, with an alternative race-night of Friday (7:30pm) from their home at Derwent Park Stadium, Workington (CA14 2HG). Yes, we are all aware that, at times, too many teams were racing on the same night & from what was discussed at the AGM, with information passed on to promotions that were not present, changes & amendments had to be made, not to the liking of some but it was a committee decision. On the original date of the league meeting of Workington v Scunthorpe of 19th May, Scunthorpe agreed to the postponement as Workington had 3 riders absent on European duties. At that time, my post were liked because of Scunthorpe's co-operation. Now, whenever I post, some posters have taken to having "rose tinted glasses" & "tunnel vision" to see only their way & not what was, initially, agreed to. Even this last weekend when you are trying to get fixtures done, a poster was praying for rain on Sunday & hence it came, just because you had 2 riders missing. There was even a point made that it was an arranged meeting from the original fixture list but some were taking it on board that it was a re-arranged fixture. Even tsunami pointed this out and still Workington fans were posting that they were being hard done too because they could not get suitable guests. Once their younger rider(Bewley) was doing well abroad & re-declarations with some riders riding in Poland, they must have realised that there could be problems. Even the rule makers(SCB not BSPA) make ammendments to change rules throughout a season, not just this year, when they see an issue.
  7. That is why they got rid of Sedgeman & brought in Tungate to score the points at BV & not away!

    Witches v Bandits 9th August

    Last week Swindon v Leicester on Wednesday then Poole v Leicester on Thursday
  9. What you are implying then is that more riders do drugs. Care to elaborate?

    Championship Shield

    League takes priority as some teams are panicking trying to get their fixtures done before the cut off date
  12. Mr Godfrey has not had an Agenda but seems to be the Spokesperson for the BSPA. Last year, Whenever Buster made a comment, he was lambasted as people thought it was his idea but he was speaking up for the BSPA as a group as Godfrey has done in the past. The Friday fixture situation was explained in the SS the other week but people will still make their own assumptions. I am pretty sure Mr Godfrey can look after himself. Whether right or wrong, we all post opinions on here as that is what a forum is for.
  13. Where is the question mark? ........................I suppose, in the perfect English language, I should have put "It looks like" instead of "Are" But we ALL post perfect English on here, don't we. People read what they perceive is posted & do not get the tone as a post can be taken a different way than when it is spoken. "are you suggesting that due the above mentioned, teams are knocking Scunthopre riders off? if you are that i think is one of the most stupid posts ive ever read " Where did I post knocking riders off? I said "forcefull" meaning being blocked, taken to the fence, sliding your back wheel out, taking the same line, etc similar to how N Pedersen used to ride & how F Lindgren has been doing recently. "but they did take themselves out you could see both auty and gino were going to have there issues when they happened maybe theres a bit of pressure on from management making them make mistakes" Again, I posted "Are our riders trying too hard" making up for riders not scoring points. All the riders are trying but you need a bit of luck & confidence.
  14. Are our riders trying too hard to get us the points for the play offs or are teams now being forcefull because of our reputation on & off the track(riders & management). Just an opinion, folks!

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2018

    He had his best engine sorted about a month ago( v Sheffield in KOC) but I think other problems have got into his head including family returning to America. That is why he has moved to the EWR to save on traveling but I think he should be taken in by 1 of our speedway families to ease the burden on him. He has been racing with a GTR this year & at the last home meeting he said he was sending another engine to Michael Lee.
