    Blimey..speedway on BBC1!

    Dead right. The BBC are engaged in a frenzy of box ticking tosh.

    Good feature.

    BBC Sports Personality Stitch Up

    Briggo's runner up place in '66 has been well documented and speculated over. Some say he actually won, but the idea of a speedway rider winning in the year that England won the football world cup was not what the BBC was prepared to accept. Supposedly.

    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    Bang on!

    Speedway mentioned on BBC1 Breakfast again this morning. A bit of a non article to be honest re Polish rider getting tangled up with the tapes.
  6. Exactly. When I first saw speedway as a youngster, it was the thrill and the spectacle that got me addicted and kept me coming back. Although I wanted my team to win (Halifax), it wasn't the the be all and end all of things. Speedway is an entertainment first and foremost.

    They would fix it so he wouldn't win as they supposedly did to Barry Briggs in 1966.

    St Austell

    Thanks for all the info - looks as if the track is not where Eden Project is.

    St Austell

    Is anyone able to clarify this. Years ago I visited St Austell speedway whilst on a holiday on the area. Yesterday I visited the Eden Project and was reminded that I remember reading that the speedway ended because of a major new eco project being developed on the site. Is the Eden Project now where the track was or I have I got this wrong? Can't seem to find a definitive answer on the defunct track sites etc.
  10. Blimey! When Woffinden crashed the commentator made Nige sound sound like whispering Bob Harris.

    Championship League Riders Championship

    In every one off world final and the majority of GP's throughout history, there have always been riders who have qualified on merit but who realistically had little chance of ever winning. Craig Cooke is probably a current example of this but it's grossly unfair to keep knocking the man - it looks as if he will be out next year anyway but even so, he has already achieved what most riders never will. The only difference for people like Cookie and Bomber is that unlike struggling riders in GP's and world finals in the past, the 'ordeal' goes on for 10 or so meetings where as it was over and done with on one night previously.

    Championship League Riders Championship

    There seemed to be a hell of a sling shot effect coming out of turn 2 on the outside! Numerous death defying overtakes at that point of the track. As others have said, that was a superb, and hugely entertaining meeting. Well done Craig Cook and great to see him jumping the fence and acknowledging the travelling Glasgow fans.

    Championship League Riders Championship

    Thought Cook rode fearlessly, aggressively, and quite brilliantly - why on earth can't he do this in the GP's?

    Fixed race nights... early indications!!!

    Monday night is absolutely not speedway night, except in Wolverhampton.

    Plan to save the Sport

    I think the commentator is superb as well.
