  1. The best race I have seen live was between Mark Loram and Billy Hamill at Poole in a meeting live on sky. They were all over the track for the whole race. At a slightly lower standard Marcus Bisson and Gordon Kennett heat 8 of a National League fixture around 1985 or 86 also at Poole.

    Somerset v Poole Prem B. 20/8/18

    I was disappointed watching the meeting with so little passing. Remember going a number of years ago and seeing a pretty good fixture against Glasgow after it threw it down with rain. Hopefully they will be able to have another go at shining a better light of there wonderful track soon.

    So eloquently put there Orlov. But sadly so true

    Track sharing

    Trouble is most teams are nowhere near each other. just to prove some sort of point Poole's two local current tracks are Eastbourne 122 Miles, Swindon 101 Miles away so most teams are too far away. It is ok for teams like Reading, Oxford & Swindon that are not too far apart 40 & 27 minutes apart. In the midlands it does get better but Brandon isn't Leicester for instance. Sadly for most fans it may be your team but the racing is not the same due to the fact if you were a fan of either Lakeside & Exeter which track would you want to watch (please forget the distance involved here). I know which one I'd prefer out of the pair and wouldn't want to see

    Swindon Stadium

    There has been complaints I've seen in the Echo about Poole in the past and considering we've been going since 1948 you should of thought of that when moving in.

    Swindon Stadium

    It's sad really when you consider that they knew what was there when they were purchasing the place isn't it!

    Well if that's the case you will not like it, no sounds behind the glass but does solve the bitter cold at Blunsdon. I have only been behind glass at 2 meetings one was at Hackney and the other at Poole and I just missed the roar of the bike and the smell of the engines.

    The scoring system

    Looks Like the Poole & Ipswich fans are going to score well again
