  1. The FIM ISL regs only include Extraliga and Liga 1 as having priority but the actual ISL calendar also shows Liga 2 with Sunday priority.

    St Austell

    The original Cornish Stadium was, according to HoBS, off the A390 at Par Moor, to the east of St. Austell, on the way to St. Blazey. and the site was sold for a retail site. The Eden Project is about a mile to the north of that road. Clay Country Moto Parc was in the disused Longstone Pit near Nanpean to the north west of St. Austell until Imerey's, the French owners of English China Clays, decided to reopen the pit. The location is at https://goo.gl/maps/AX3NyK1XGyT2 at the north east point of the lake.

    Quite right. Don't let the facts get in the way of a poor conspiracy theory.

    Last year it was discretionary and correctly applied. This year it's compulsory. ...and we get it. The sole purpose of British speedway, the BSPA and the SCB regulations is to mess with the minds of a few paranoid residents of the Manchester area. "as per the grading list" which at one time was administered by Peter Oakes and may well still be.

    Not quite. A facility is allowed for a rider in the initial declaration that doesn't start the season. If the team is redeclared, it's then that no facility is allowed.

    Probably not a great shock to regulars. They started a centre green junior track 2 years ago which was meant to be convertible into a tt dirt track combining the inner and outer tracks. Like many things at the stadium, not a lot of progress was made in the 3 months before I stopped going so I don't know if that was ever finished.

    Rule Changes for 2018

    It's surprising that it took so long. Last year the exact same change was made before the season started.

    Rule Changes for 2018

    Amendments to 2018 Regulations 15.2.6 Only if a rider is at the Starting Gate with sufficient time remaining of the 2- minute allowance, be permitted to prepare their Start Area, provided they remain in full, personal control of their motorcycle, have their Cut – Out Lanyard attached, and with their motorcycle facing the direction of racing.

    Question regarding Tapes

    9.3 A Starting Gate, operated solely by the Referee, shall support easily breakable 2 or 3 cotton tapes (not rayon, nylon, plastic or other material that may cause injury to a rider colliding with them) that are tightly stretched across the track and directly above the Start / Finish line, which must be clearly marked at all times. The lowermost tape must be between 50cm and 60cm above ground level when in the down position. The tapes shall be attached with rubber bands as loose metal hooks are not permitted.

    Averages aren't killing the sport. The application of average assessment is. Haphazard at best, fraudulent at worst.

    2018 Regulations

    ...and it was the proof reader's day of again. What is calcification of a rule?

    It's all based on the mythical Grading List. Some lucky archaeologist is going to dig it up in a few thousand years time and all will be revealed.
