    What are they doing now?

    Jeremy Doncaster works at RAF Wattisham which started with electrics many years ago but has widened a lot since then. He's also a machine examiner at Ipswich. Backtrack magazine is a good source of articles such as this thread, well worth a subscription.

    Tyres.

    Not much margin for under inflation when many only use about 5 psi in the first place!

    I don't buy the "Bewley has rubbish equipment" line at all. It's the way things are set up and the mechanics with him at those meetings would have made a difference, perhaps mentally as well as it could have raised his confidence

    Absolutely agree about the part I've put in bold. To me, it doesn't matter if they're 60 years old, if they're in your top two, then they should ride.

    I quite enjoyed the anticipation of unpredictability tonight. Birkermose looked good, as did Zmarzlik and Lindgren. Shame Kemp didn't get a ride.

    Sometimes yes but he has talent no doubt and time to develop.

    Yes, to go to events only.

    Bbc says rain due again there at 8pm local time?

    I quite like it, piston, rod, chain wheel, barrel and levers

    Sunday would be better.
  11. I've had nothing but joy and good service from plusnet

    I don't think he was team riding at all, just trying not to be passed himself. The guy in red was always going to win the race and Pawlicki was vulnerable on the outside.
  13. Ah, so just as the virus knows when there are seven people rather than six, or you are drinking in a pub at 10:15 rather than 9:55 pm it also selects its host based on their status. Clever thing isn't it.

    I don't think it does though. Teams will want to get first and second or first and third every race if they can, else they risk not being in the final.

    Disagree with this. First and fourth to me is the same as second and third - in no way are the two riders in second and third the better TEAM (not sure why we're using capitals but I'll go with it). First and second or first and third then yes, they are the better TEAM. Really don't like the points system at all as to me the whole point of speedway is to win the race. I'd really love for the final to be two riders from one country out in first and second, miles ahead only for one of them to have an EF on the last bend and the other nation wins, because they were the best TEAM - bet they'd re-think it again for next year.
