    NP won't put any bums on seats at Sheffield because Sheffield has no seating.

    Sheffield 2020

    I'm sure I remember something from years ago which concluded that Owlerton didn't meet requirements to hold international meetings because of the narrowness of the track.

    Does anything happen on the centre green at Owlerton? The Sheffield track always strikes me as ridiculously narrow especially given how fast it is. It needs widening to bring it into line with Belle Vue and nearly all European tracks.

    Wall Of Death Film

    We all know about 'Once A Jolly Swagman', but I'm amazed I never been aware of this film which features some good action from Walthamstow later on in the film..
  7. Just watching this back...am I the only one who thought there was something suspicious about the sound? There was constant air horn and crowd noise much like Cardiff but the stadium was half empty and In the many crowd shots, I didn't see a single air horn anywhere, so where was all this noise coming from? Dare I say it. Was sound imported in to enhance the atmosphere much like an audience laughter track on some dismal BBC sit-com? Someone tell me I'm wrong.

    I accept that many people, including even Mr Shovler, have amended their view of Tia Woffinden from that of precious upstart to a much more dignified figure in recent times. So disappointing then to witness him spitting whilst the Welsh national anthem was being played. Why would you do that? Fairly disgusting and disrespectful I would have thought.

    I can only conclude that most people on this forum were too young to be watching speedway in the 60's, 70's or 80's. I know some will disagree but speedway is no different now to what it always has been, and generally, overall may be actually better than it used to be. Great racing, not great racing, that's how it has always been.

    OK, not great racing but we should rejoice at the size of the crowd, surely the biggest there since the 1994 world final.
  13. Here's a curio. In a recent special edition of Mojo music magazine on Pink Floyd, a tour programme from 1974 is reprinted in which the four members of Floyd are depicted in separate alter ego cartoon strip adventures. Guitarist Dave Gilmore is Dave Derring, speedway rider who, in true 'boys own' style wins the crucial race at the last moment and wins back his girlfriend in the process. The Pink Floyd song title/speedway connection was the best I could come up with although I suppose I could have gone with Shine On You Crazy Newcastle Diamonds.

    Belle Vue v King's Lynn 26/08/19

    Today again raises the issue of meetings taking place in the afternoon. Regular fans understand and will tolerate the watering delays but first timers may take a different view.

    A GP was held there in 1997. Think the crowd was around 10,000.
