    SON 2020

    Apologies if this has been discussed before but how soon after an event is it possible to watch it on You Tube? (Usually) I’m too tight/not prepared to pay for a month pass for BT especially as speedway’s foe, the rain, looks like it might spoil things.
  4. Completely agree and very safe in tough conditions.
  5. I think we’d all rather be there for the reasons stated above but I’ll be showing my support for British speedway by subscribing to the streaming service. I’m also a keen Northampton Town fan and have purchased a season ticket knowing full well that I won’t be able to attend games for a while. The main thing is I want the ‘Cobblers’ and British speedway to still be around when life returns to normal.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Will the season preview edition have a guide/map for the main European leagues? Dont think there’s been one the last couple of years but they were a great point of reference a few years ago for initial planning of trips abroad.

    Norden Stadium

    Peter Adams told us the tale when he was a guest at an NSSC meeting. Peter was driving Bruce and the World Championship trophy to Germany. When they arrived at the ferry Bruce realised he hadn’t got his passport. With no time to return to the Midlands to collect it, and the need to get the trophy to the final, they decided to hide Bruce in the boot and managed to get him through all the checks to Germany. As you can imagine that is a very short version of Peter’s long and very funny story.
  8. I suppose congratulations to Russia but what an awful weekend of speedway. If it's held at the same track next year I won't be wasting two weekend afternoons watching it.......

    Poole 2019

    So Poole have reneged on their promise to stage a round of the British Youth Championships. (All Premiership clubs agreed to hold a round at the AGM). Does anybody know the reason or will there be a reason given? Nothing on the Poole website at the moment. British Youth Speedway statement; "It is with great regret that the Poole Promotion have informed the Young Lions Management that despite agreement at the 2018 AGM, that they will not be able to host a British Youth Championship round during the 2019 season. The Championship Round at Poole was booked in for Thursday 22nd August. Youth Co Ordinator Neil Vatcher said, I am really disappointed that the Poole round will now not be going ahead, as with all the rounds in 2019, I know that the riders were really looking forward to riding at the Premiership venue, but unfortunately this will now not be happening. I am currently in the process of speaking with another venue about possibly hosting a round somewhere else, and am awaiting details on that. I wanted to let all the riders know as soon as possible, as a lot of them were travelling from the North, and either have or were intending on making accommodation arrangements."

    Tommy Knudsen Auction

    A total figure for the evening was £2620.21. This includes the raffle, collection and auction. A great effort from all concerned; Tommy Knudsen, Paul Ackroyd, Lawrence Hare, Joe Owen, Bruce Cribb, the host & auctioneer Peter York and especially the good speedway folk who dug deep in to their pockets to achieve such a great total for such a great cause. Peter York again hosts the next event at the NSSC on 11th July when Bruce Cribb returns to talk at length about his new book which of course will be available to purchase with all profits going to the Ben Fund. Proceeds from entrance fees and raffle on the evening will also be donated to the Ben Fund.
  11. What a great reply. A brilliant piece of information.
  12. A reminder that Gary Guglielmi will be back at Brandon next Thursday (23rd May, 8pm). Chris Durno interviews his boyhood hero in what promises to be a very interesting evening. There's a lot to discuss! Everybody is welcome at these events with a small charge for non-members of £3. All proceeds go to help Neil Vatcher and the Young Lions U16's. We start at 8pm at the Brandon Club, Main Street, Brandon, Coventry, CV8 3HW. The venue is just down the hill on the Rugby side of Brandon and apart from a good bar there's hot drinks and light snacks available. A warm welcome awaits. Come and catch up with familiar faces from the Brandon terraces. For all details please see our website; https://www.nuneatonspeedwaysupportersclub.co.uk

    Plymouth 2019

    I realise it is possible that it could be raining 15 miles away in Plymouth but it's been dry here all day. In fact very warm and sunny and still no rain at 10:30pm. This morning the BBC forecast a band of rain coming in about 6pm. It hasn't happened. Very difficult for all concerned when the forecasts cannot be relied upon. Dissapointed to not have been able to add Plymouth to our list of tracks visited.

    Plymouth 2019

    Down in Devon. Hoping to go tonight to see the Thompson Twins debut but weather looking very dodgy for later. Plymouth's website very underwhelming with mixed messages about Gladiators & Devils and no mention of tonight's meeting. Apologies if I'm missing something but not very impressive or informative.
  15. OK guys. I need some help. At the start of the meetings at Coventry we used to have the Flight of the Bumble Bee followed by a march. What is the piece of music that the track staff used to march out to?
