    A couple of dodgy scores could be put down to engine/set up issues or disliking a track they're at. Happens to all riders.

    Birmingham Brummies v Edinburgh Monarchs

    Good enough reasons to call it off now then??????

    He was riding with a team leader of Nicholls capability & against 3 heat leaders in 3 of his rides. What I see is a riding order of weakest to strongest, riders ride at 6, 7, 2, 3 or 4, 5 then 1.

    Cheers taps. Just checked back at AGM Statement as I knew there was something, just thought it was 4 & it is achieved not assessed.

    Either way, he has posted news before the club he has signed for has.

    Thought you had to have a minimum of a 4.00 average whether actual or converted.
  7. It looked like on that last bend he shut off, not sliding, but just let the bike run( how he did not end up in the fence??????????) then opened the throttle to pass. SUPERB!!!!!!

    Erm ... what did you expect! Most threads mentioning team changes are saying " now we are over the 38 point limit .........". It was always going to happen as averages are based over 7 riders having 4 rides each, riding in pairs equalling 14 heats at 42 points. I just cannot fathom out why we have team declarations of 36, 38 & 42.5 in our 3 leagues.

    Every one is keeping quiet about it but did any one have the "Golden Ticket" bar Buster.

    Scunthorpe v Somerset 17.5.19 League

    Unfortunately I thought it was one of the worst meetings I have seen at the EWR, from the poor refereeing to Godfrey's ridiculous protests and mediocre racing, I stuck it out to the end but was well ready to leave, unfortunately I don't think I will be coming back. This has to be a wind up surely ????  After 1 poor meeting compared to the previous 4 entertaining ones. The ref is in his 1st year & if you saw something that you were aggrieved about, you would re-act. We had a couple of riders that did not score their usual standard & they had 3 riders that have done basically, nothing all season away, then come to our fair track & bang in 18 points between them. It was just one of those nights for us but to say you're thinking of not coming back, think back to what was on offer the 1st 4 meetings.

    Advertising in ASDA 2019

    I have been saying this for years about leaflets left in supermarkets, clubs, pubs & even schools. Posters could be put up as when we have a fair or circus in town, they are all over. Last year we had about 3 banners around town advertising speedway on Friday nights.

    Scunthorpe v Somerset 17.5.19 League

    I think that was mentioned at an after show in the clubhouse very early in the season. With wind blowing in to the stands, I did feel a bit of dust in the breeze after only around heat 4 but did not get worse.

    Scunthorpe v Somerset 17.5.19 League

    Probably snapped up by Somerset before us but just not announced. He did what he had to do in beating opposition reserves. Won heat 2 but should have been all 4 back. Heat 4 beat Lawlor for 3rd. Heat 8 was in front of Lawlor in 3rd but gifted 2nd with Kurtz falling last bend. Heat 14 with Nielsen shedding a chain early on, he beat Kinsley for 2nd.

    Berwick vs Sheffield... 18th May

    True, but I have seen this scenario a couple of times this year. As I said, canny management of your team & riders being on the ball.

    Berwick vs Sheffield... 18th May

    Canny bit of management from Sheffield in heat 7. Proctor suffering the effects of the incident in heat 3 & Sheffield 6 points behind use a TS with a higher averaged rider( could of been King but Howarth used) instead of declaring him injured & IRR comes in to play using any one below him in the averages.
