    Birmingham Brummies 2020

    The MD of the greyhound company has been on holiday and back today and the consortium leader is due to call her tomorrow ...therefore until they speak the agreement to run is awaited then the consortium will finalise the deal to takeover Birmingham Speedway from the outgoing Mason family. Therefore the next few days are important for the club with the new potential owners ready to confirm everything for the 2022 season --- and formulating the Brummies side can be sorted

    Birmingham Brummies 2020

    PROSPECTIVE Birmingham consortium leader Nigel Tolley says the clock is counting down fast if they are achieve their ambition to keep speedway in the city. Local businessman Tolley addressed a big gathering of supporters on Tuesday and outlined the current position regarding the proposed takeover of the club. He confirmed a group of four members – which he hopes to increase to five over the coming weeks – have all pledged a significant investment to help bring the Brummies to the tapes in 2022. No sale has yet been agreed with outgoing owners David and Peter Mason, as the consortium require all of their funds to be in place in order to proceed, and running costs at Perry Barr next year have substantially increased. The club have been offered a one-year extension to their lease, but at a much-increased rent compared to this year, and also based on them staging 20 meetings with that rent to be paid whether that number is reached or not. Tolley confirmed the intention is for the Brummies to again line up in the Championship next season, and the realistic deadline for entry is in early December. He said: “I know Boris Johnson last week at the climate conference said it was five to midnight – well, regarding Birmingham Speedway at the moment, it’s two minutes to midnight. “These next few weeks are absolutely vital, and we are here to see the future of Birmingham Speedway. “There are many more hurdles to get over, but we will do our utmost for there to be speedway at Perry Barr next season. “I’m talking to Peter Mason on a weekly basis, but everything has to be put in its place. “It’s no good buying the fixtures and fittings if we’re not racing next season, and it’s no good signing a lease until we’re given the go-ahead to race, and we have to get these problems sorted out by the start of the month. “We want to keep supporters as up-to-date as possible all the way through the proceedings. Without the supporters, we can’t go anywhere.” Tolley said several avenues are being explored in order to secure funding to cover the rental increase – including a major drive for meeting sponsorship. He believes that without heavy sponsorship, the club would require an average attendance of around 1,000 in order to break even. He said: “We’re assured that the other stadiums that have the same owners are being offered exactly the same lease as we’ve been offered. “If we talk about the same attendances as last season, this will be the final year for Brummies, so we’ve got to do whatever to make sure we’re getting preferably a minimum of 1,000 people into that stadium. “We’ve got all sorts of ideas about that, and we’ll do whatever we can to make it work – and we also want to hear from supporters with any ideas they’ve got. We are determined to see Perry Barr open for speedway next season.” The consortium is also set to offer shares in the limited company to supporters at a minimum investment of £100. They stress that at present they are seeking pledges only, and no monies will become due until their participation in 2022 is confirmed. There will be benefits to supporters for getting involved, and full details will be available at Birmingham-speedway.com shortly.

    Birmingham Speedway - crucial meeting

    I wasn't looking for a "spat" just asking a few questions as what you had said was confusing and was trying to find out out what had happened

    Birmingham Speedway - crucial meeting

    who stopped you going in the bar ? Where was this "hole in the wall serving £4.50 lager plus stodge and chips"? ---- chips unfortunately were not available as many fans wanted ...only chilli and rice, curry and rice, pie and mash and if ordered sausage and mash and this is all controlled by the stadium with the speedway having nothing to do with the catering and bars. It is their ruling that food and drink cannot be brought in as it is at some other stadiums. The promotion did try to request different menus but they are awaiting their kitchens being renovated and extractors replaced hence no chips, burgers etc . Sorry you regarded it as a dreadful experience .

    MSDL 2021

    2021 MSDL The 2021 MIDLANDS + SOUTHERN DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE will consist of three clubs meeting each other home and away twice. Coming to the tapes are the reigning champions Birmingham , who won the title in 2019. Joining them in 2021 will be Eastbourne and Wolverhampton. Each track will also be staging their own second halves as well with Wolverhampton also having a side in the new Premiership Junior League. They are organizing their MSDL side in conjunction with Birmingham . League co-ordinator Laurence Rogers is pleased that the league will be back in a shortened 2021 campaign, “ I was determined that the league would continue . It is a vital part of British Speedway along with the Northern Junior League giving young riders their first taste of league racing and being in a team as a stepping -stone like so many before them into the higher leagues.” “We have unfortunately lost the nomadic teams under new rules which is a great pity but once the pandemic is over and those clubs can continue their search for land for their tracks we can then hopefully welcome them back.” “ A big thank you to Ian Jordan at Eastbourne and Chris Van Straaten at Wolverhampton for ensuring this league can continue by agreeing to enter sides. With an excess of riders wanting to ride for Birmingham we are assisting our West Midlands neighbours with their team building.” “At Birmingham we plan to run a 2nd half every meeting and in addition to the MSDL we have agreed a three club experimental NJL Shield with Redcar and Berwick involving all three cc classes (125, 250 and 500) . We are also involving the Birmingham and Wolverhampton squad members split into 3 groups of 4 riders who will contest 2 Grand Prix type rounds each with the top 8 contesting a Final. We will also have demo races involving 125 and 250cc youngsters“ “Eastbourne also plan other events as do Wolverhampton so there should be plenty of track action for the up and coming riders.” JUNE Weds 9 Birmingham v Wolverhampton A FIXTURE Sat 19 Eastbourne v Birmingham A FIXTURE Mon 21 Wolverhampton v Eastbourne A FIXTURE JULY Sun 4 Eastbourne v Wolverhampton A FIXTURE Weds 21 Birmingham v Wolverhampton B FIXTURE Weds 28 Birmingham v Eastbourne A FIXTURE AUGUST Mon 2 Wolverhampton v Birmingham A FIXTURE Sat 7 Eastbourne v Birmingham B FIXTURE Mon 9 Wolverhampton v Eastbourne B FIXTURE Mon 30 Wolverhampton v Birmingham B FIXTURE SEPT Weds 1 Birmingham v Eastbourne B FIXTURE Sat 4 Eastbourne v Wolverhampton B FIXTURE Dependent on fixture dates Birmingham will stage a MSDL Riders' Final with 8 riders over 8 heats with top 2 averaged riders from the 3 clubs and 2 wild cards.

    Whats happening with Birmingham ?

    There is interest and talks are continuing . Until everything is in place and everything agreed there will then be full details released . Talks have been made with the landlords and the BSPL know the current position whilst the interested parties have to conclude arrangements over assets and equipment with the current owners. All this takes time .

    Still lots going on ...so the doom and gloom merchants can perhaps be patient and wait to see the outcome of the interest as these things are not just completed overnight .

    Birmingham v Edinburgh ko cup

    Silly statement !! why would they want to do that ? No more meetings = no money and it's their jobs !! They were all fired up to overcome the deficit but it just didn't happen. As for RIP there is a lot going on to save the club so let's get behind those efforts .

    Birmingham v Newcastle

    think you will find that there is a good working relationship now after a rocky start. The Commonwealth games if you look at the timetable only involves a few events at the revamped stadium with events spread over the Midlands and none are scheduled for a Wednesday night .
  25. watch the football highlights as better to and get yourself down to Perry Barr for this all important clash
