  1. It's my understanding that the Ben Fund meeting organisers declined the invitation to have the meeting filmed.
  2. Video evidence confirms this.

    Video links supplied as an entirely separate matter of interest. I'm sure someone else will be able to answer your question.

    If it is of interest, here's the video recording of that forum from Feb 2016. Part 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEPXhNEjdbI Part 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHzQqY3e2CE Part 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HC04XGWE-Ac Part 4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRSCJPjGFbg
  7. The choice of race was mine. Leicester fans didn't have too much cheer about last night, and a shock 5-1 over K.Bjerre & Nicholls warranted my submission to the BSPA press office. Agreed there was plenty of good racing, heat 15 especially, but as GoldenGauntlet has already said those will be available to enjoy on the DVD.
  8. Updates has Heat 3, Heat 10 and Heat 14 wrong Heat 3 was : Schlein, Robson, Thorssell, Wells Heat 10 was : Schlein, Barker, Harris, Thorssell Heat 14 was : Robson, Thorssell, Perks, Wells
  9. Premier Sports website showing delayed transmission for Sweden at 10pm tonight.

  11. Tonight's meeting was off the scale in terms of racing entertainment ! In my 15 years of filming Speedway, it has to rank in my top 3 out of the 1000s I've filmed, certainly the best individual event I've ever covered. Truly wonderful stuff, well done to everyone involved.

  13. There's a Reading vs Newcastle listed from 1984 here :- http://classicspeedwayvideos.com/reading.html This is Jan Staechmann's site
  14. Believe me, I still get asked on occasions to supply our recordings on VHS. I have to politely decline. Having to make DVDs is enough of a headache sometimes.

    Berlin Ice Speedway 2017

    Booked my flights this evening. Not visited Berlin for 15 years, since that infamous night at the Friedrich Ludvig Jahn in the rain. It'll be my first visit to Wilmersdorf, long overdue.

    Speedway In The Guardian.....wow!

    Not entirely sure why Nottingham Panthers got included in this article, given that they got nearly 6000 at their home opener a fortnight ago.
  17. Woryna not fit to take an extra ride in 14. Simple as that.
  18. Video of Heat 11 available here http://speedwaygb.co/news.php?extend.30645 Courtesy of Clean Cut Sports, who are filming at Owlerton in 2016.
  19. Action from last night is now online : http://speedwaygb.co/news.php?extend.30426
  20. There's a statement on the Clean Cut Sports website, but the decision not to film was absolutely nothing to do with either Sky or GoSpeed, both of whom continue to be excellent partners to SpeedwayGB
  21. Clean Cut Sports were supposed to have filmed it, but no, no it wasn't.

    Periscope. A Promoters Nightmare App.

    For obvious reasons I have an interest in this thread, as my business Clean Cut Sports has indeed been involved in the live streaming of ice hockey for 6 years now. Since the implementation of a new management committee at BSPA, clarification has been sought from the digital media rights holders what is and what isn't permitted under the terms of the exclusive Sky contract. The quick answer is that all content from meetings held in the UK under the auspices of the BSPA can only be hosted on club websites, and that content is not permitted to be hosted via Third party websites such as YouTube. Accordingly, using Instagram (or indeed Facebook, or Twitter, or indeed any other social media platform that can do video), is not permitted, There are also other restrictions about how much content can be uploaded, although these have been relaxed in recent times.

    Poland 2016 Season Extraleague News

    Whilst these amendments to the NICE league have generated certain uncertainties with TV dates scheduled for some Fridays and Saturdays, the scrapping of the 4 Wednesday dates removes all the fixture clashes they created for riders riding in both the NICE league and the British Elite League. July 13th and 20th are now looking much better for Poole. Friday 5th August does however remain a potential headache, as does Sunday 11th September.

    Buster felt sure a sponsor for the EL would be in place for 2017.
