    BSPL AGM

    Well, don't worry as yourself & a few others on here seem to think that the members of the BSPLtd & other promoters all have crystal balls!

    And with covid19 restrictions in place & social distancing observed.

    BSPL AGM

    because they are like politicians and have rules all of their own. The number of deaths this last week has been alarming at some 1000+ per day. But then, as photos showed, in December people were out shopping & mixing without face masks & not social distancing. Even in todays paper, photos still showing groups of people going for walks & still acting in the same way, & this is lockdown no3! It would be interesting to know if any of these deaths have occurred after having their 1st vaccination.(High risk category)

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    I have had problems renewing over the phone this week as a message keeps coming on "extension closed".

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    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.
  13. 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.

    Old points system GP results

    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.
  21. What is going on with the GP site? Mostly get the info wrong but now have the results of Friday Prague meeting as 1. Zmarzlik 2. Doyle 3. Laguta ! I thought riders had been excluded or demoted after the event.
  22. We all know of Rory's dislike for wet tracks but I think what is interesting here is the fact that Rory does a lot of training to the kids & they, more often than not, just get on with it. Not much messing around at the tapes, doing the gardening & adjusting the clutch. Plus the inclement weather early on, with the drizzle, meant that the meeting ran at a decent pace.
  23. A few riders went out to find work to bring in some finances because of their outlay last winter. Some work for their sponsors & some even work for delivery firms. It was only because of the suspension of racing that this happened. As some riders have come out and said that they will not be racing in a one off meeting because of lack of practice, being a danger to themselves & others & if they have mechanical issues, further finances to find or have an accident, their income is suspended.
  24. At the weekend, a local football club, Gainsborough Trinity, held their 1st league match(Northern Premier I think, about div 8 or 9 to our top league) but because they were amateur standard, were allowed up to 600 fans in a 4300 capacity stadium(partly congested) yet you are not allowed 2000-3000 in a 50000+ stadium(less congested) as it is classed as professional.
