    Belle Vue 2018

    It was in the Manchester Evening News yesterday, but doesn't seem to be online now
  2. Is Howarth riding tonight?

    Rye House 2018

    Well Belle Vue didn't and we get to "enjoy" Monday nights as a consequence. What I do know, unless my eyes deceive me, is that crowds are down. Maybe they will improve during the school holidays when the next generation of prospective fans will be allowed to go, as there will be no school in the morning.

    Jepsen-Jensen didn't look like a rider with his best days behind him.

    Bt Sport Coverage

    Do these figures take into account people like me who recorded the GP whilst watching the football?
  6. I said many years ago that the consistent dilution, annually, of the product on offer, combined with increases in price could only lead one way. More for less is great, but less for more? Now we arrive at a situation where my club is forced to run on either a Monday or a Wednesday (neither great nights) without even having a vote in the matter. The result - a considerable drop in attendance/revenue and history shows us that once fans are lost, very few return. But hey ho, all is fine and rosy with the BSPA - the sport is in great shape, attendances are on the rise, fans are happy to watch "select" teams racing each other, so no problems. We'll see come the end of the season.
  7. We at Belle Vue realise fully that MPT is a really good rider and were surprised that BV didn't step in for him before Lynn, given his proven ability at the NSS. Our loss is certainly Lynn's gain
  8. Brutal, but accurate assessment of where we are. Hardly any new blood coming through the turnstiles, not surprising given a product that hardly anyone recognises. Weekday (school day) meetings not good for B.V. as no kids often means no adults too. The actual racing at B.V. is on the whole really good and our Promotion tries hard, but B.V. had no vote in something that has fundamentally altered its' business model - how can this be right?
  9. Let's hope that they don't decide to take an interval and just run through the meeting. We had a rain affected meeting the other year against KL when they took an interval against a backdrop of gathering storm clouds.

    Excellent news. Used to love my trips to Cowley. Great track with friendly locals.
  11. On BSPA site it's off - re-stage on 12 April
  12. Good to hear a plug for the meeting on the local XS Manchester radio station this morning. Whether it will add to the attendance or not, will be difficult to quantify.
  13. I'm biased, I know, but for me it will be Dan Bewley.

    Hopefully the Aussies will go with Doyle and either their National Champion, Tungate or Max Fricke.

    Coventry 2017

    With Buildbase as the Bees last sponsors, one would hope that they would be more than a help with the materials. Could be a problem with trespass though.
