  1. I did notice when he was presenting the Grand Prix he said that he would be supporting Jason Doyle, with no mention of Tai.

    Monkey Masks

    Martin Ashby always wore a fairly unusual one. I remember Trevor Hedge used to wear the same one, but not sure if anyone else did.
  3. I think the big mistake Rosco always makes is reading all the online abuse, taking it to heart, and commenting on it. I wouldn't be surprised if he, at least partly, feels he doesn't need that any more and it had a bearing in his decision. Good candidate to take over? Anyone? Woffinden as rider/manager perhaps?

    Cook, Vissing and Kennett banned.

    Could be Martin Dugard, who marched up to Stefan Andersson in the pits during a Sky match and flattened him. https://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/news/6635570.ex-cheetah-dugard-in-trouble-after-tv-punch/

    Worth pointing out that the rugby team have moved out due to the high financial cost of playing at Odsal. Would Speedway be financially viable?

    Ipswich wait until the match is all but lost, then use their tac sub against Doyle and Batchelor. Good tactics!

    How come Vissing can't ride? Cook is appealing against his ban and can ride for King's Lynn. Vissing appealed too, but was told he couldn't.
  9. Or, as Woffy put it, Tungate was riding "like Bambi on ice"
  10. If ther British Final had riders of that standard in it then it would be more worth Tai riding in it. The meeting is an event filled with second division riders and is a qualifier for a wild card in a world championship meeting for which Tai has already qualified. Surely it is better to have a meeting where the winner qualifies, rather than whoever is second. The meeting itself was better for not having a world champion wiping the floor with everyone.
  11. And Jason was nearly put out of work one year after being given a 13 point average.
  12. Overall, I would say Leigh was better than Jason -but for 2 years Jason was the best rider in the World and had a total determination to win the World Championship. I don't think Leigh could lay claim to either of those. As a club number one, though, Leigh probably takes it.
  13. I didn't say that. Gavan said it. I just quoted his post. Personally I've no idea what was said over the mic so have no opinion on it.
  14. I'm sure the Glasgow number 6 is laughing under his helmet when he turns to camera while everyone else is piling on top of each other.
  15. Oh those Dugards! It was always them in the thick of it when Swindon and Oxford used to have barneys, although I don't remember Paul getting involved back then - more Martin and Bob. Paul always seemed the more sensible one. I'm just surprised that Paul Dugard isn't still 16 years old!
