  1. Ben Fund

    Is this some sort of New Year Resolution, or will normal service be resumed soon? But yes, it's blatantly obvious that the Ben Fund and Peterborough Speedway made completely the right decision - there's no way a speedway meeting could have taken place this coming Sunday.
  2. Ben Fund

    Just to clarify, that the current state of the Peterborough track has as much to do with any postponement as the forecast. It's very soft and there's no way it could recover in time for Sunday. It's unavoidable, given recent weather. If you notice, any tracks holding amateur meetings this winter have seen their programme decimated.
  3. Ben Fund

    Yeah it's gutting for such as Paulco and Willie, but I think it's the only decision that could be made. Forecast for Sunday is wet, cold and icy, even possibly snow.

    Will the train even run on Sunday? If not, then there certainly will be refundable.
  5. Betting in 2018

    They wouldn't have been 10/11 favourites with the bookmakers, since there was an Oxford side who only lost 2 of their first 23 meetings, which is better than losing 4 in 17. Poole were favourites at the start of the season, Oxford took over around mid-May when they smashed Pirates at Wimborne Road and then won at Coventry by ten points 24 hours later. Ipswich had a nice run of wins, the most impressive at Poole, but Oxford always looked more likely champions, and Cheetahs had an unbeaten run of 15 EL matches (14 wins and a draw at Poole) that lasted from the end of April to mid-August. Oxford were probably odds on throughout July and August, but then had a relatively poor finish to the season (Ales Dryml, Todd Witshire, Brian Andersen and Lukas Drmyl were all riding while semi-fit), which enabled Poole and Coventry to catch up. Ipswich would never have been 10/11.
  6. Ice Speedway Meetings 2017/2018

    Last weekend, he scored a maximum of 42 points, and outscored Ivanov by 9 points over the weekend. If the same was repeated at Inzell, the gap would be 34 points with one weekend to go. So it's more likely for Koltakov to retain his title on the opening day at Heerenveen. See you in Holland, Conkers?
  7. Bt Sport Coverage

    I believe the official attendance for Wembley in 1981 was 71,000. That's still a massively impressive figure, though.
  8. Scorpions 2018

    No delay. The club were always going to take their time in announcing the seventh rider: http://scunthorpescorpions.co/?p=8028
  9. Coventry Bees Nl ?

    There's still some who is struggling to see that for some reason. Bees' return to Brandon IS NOT HELPED AT ALL by them running at Leicester - quite the opposite. I won't go to Leicester for a Coventry fixture. I might go to an away fixture somewhere, so that I can have a good shout in the direction of that ally of Brandon Estates, Mick Horton
  10. Ben Fund

    Well said, and totally agree. The change in start-time is far from ideal for some people, but the last thing that anyone wants to see is the Ben Fund miss out as a result. If you were planning to go, but now can't, there's still a chance for you to contribute here, by simply clicking on the 'Make A Donation' button: http://srbf.co.uk/

    If all goes to plan, No 7 will be revealed during 'An Evening With The 2018 Scorpions' on Friday night: http://scunthorpescorpions.co/?p=8192

  13. Edinburgh 2018

    That's a big shame. Will the live updates from meetings continue? There were always very thorough on there.
  14. Ivan Mauger 1972 unreal.!!!

    It was commonplace at the time. Don't forget the 1974 World Final, where Olsen took a heavy fall and the race continued with him lying injured on the track.
  15. King Cinder

    It exists. Peter Duncan confirmed as much when I spoke to him. He put together the two-minute clip for his YouTube channel. He's very fond of King Cinder. It was a rare chance for him to appear on-screen with Lesley Manville, his girlfriend from that period. The two are still good friends to this day. King Cinder is there, simply awaiting for the BBC to release it. Whether they ever will is a different matter, although Peter Duncan was hopeful that the digital revolution will eventually result in somewhere where you can download old TV series.
