    KENT 2019

    The product is constantly on the decline. Ramping prices up further is going to do nothing but drive more fans away. There are other ways to draw a crowd, namely promotion. I wish Rye were still running but towards the end I was picking and choosing my meetings because the sport simply wasn’t value for money. So no, not at ANY price. The generation of fans who are/were happy to turn up and lap up whatever tripe was being served up, up and down the country are dying out, just like British Speedway.

    KENT 2019

    Wouldn’t say that’s strictly true. Made many gaffes while Rye promotor, but, give him his due he kept the club running. £15 is too much for speedway at any level in this country nowadays. Sport’s on the slide massively.

    Premiership Supporters Cup

    Yet again, the powers that be have managed to make things more complicated than they need to be. Just use the standard race formula with heat 15 voted for by fans.

    Rye House 2018

    As a Kings Lynn fan you seem to know a lot about the debts at Rye House. Got any proof or is it just bluster?

    Workington 2019

    Hope this is a troll account, if not then what a dumb thing to post. Without fans you’d have to get a proper job. I’m sure there are plenty of Workington fans who have ploughed more than £40k into supporting the club over the years. A rider can find another club to race for, once a club dies then its fans have lost it potentially forever.

    Why does Sings have to be supportive of a team they don’t support signing a poor journeyman?

    KENT 2019

    I was only told about points money (per point). This was about 10 years ago. Could be nothing more than a rumour of course.

    In the Premier League days at Rye the rumour was that Len paid all seven riders the same money. If that’s true or not I have no idea, but that would be easier to do in the NL than the PL you’d suspect.

    This is the team to beat. Just hope they don’t have an trouble with injuries.

    It was Boxall and Armstrong, Woffinden stepped up to the PL the following year. We had half a chance of retaining the league title in 2006 at Rye before the rule was changed mid-season and Steve had to move into the main team.

    And Hume has a potentially unappealing history with injuries. I’m sure there’s a reason Birmingham have gone with Castagna over Hume. Ideally we’d see the British lads fixed up first but it’s a sport, we can’t be telling teams who they can and can’t sign based on nationality, unless it’s a rule enforced across the board. There are riders who get frozen out because of the numbers game and yes it’s sad but that’s the nature of the beast.

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    They don’t have to average 3.79, they just have to improve as well or better than Hume would by putting more on their average. If, for example Hume and a two pointer both have scope to put 0.5 on their starting figure then the obvious choice is the two pointer to leave more team building points further up the order.

    Mildenhall 2019

    The fans don’t decide who their club signs. Just because Kent have signed Ledwith it doesn’t mean their supporters have to agree with it. ROFL indeed.

    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    On a 3.79 (pre-reduction) average he’s a lot more expensive points wise than a two pointer.
