    The Business plan to save UK speedway

    Don't you mean Rodney'?

    Playoff dates

    Yes. Looks like normal rules apply! No major announcement, but the usual leak out from those in the know! Sod the fans especially those planning on travelling away.
  3. Is it part of the Supplementary, Complementary And Regulatory Explanation (SCARE) that is for Promoters only? It must be adhered to until Poole find the relevant loophole / exemption! It helps encourage the greater use of guests and further dilutes team bonding that the fans want.

    Will both teams name a #8?

    Great... stops Lewis Hamilton being BBC sports personality of the year
  7. You lucky bugger missing the Vojens GP and seeing live speedway racing. The only consolation for me is watching the tennis and knowing Lewis Hamilton will not win BBC Sports Personality of the Year!

    Newcastle Diamonds 2021

    I heard a Makem suggested that sports designated land at NE1 4ST is currently not being used.
  9. I asked my chum if he was going to watch King''s Lynn tonight. He replied, "not sure" as he thinks it's not King''s Lynn but another Championship Select line-up with riders from Plymouth, Newcastle, Birmingham, Eastbourne , Scunthorpe, Newcastle & Berwick!!! Also not sure if it's the KL rising stars, fading stars or just Stars? But he hopes to recognise the riders easier as they will be in non matching team leathers! Either way we can chat about it in the Pub afterwards. We feel at home there because there is always three guest beers on!

    Is that the third bend at Poole?

    Tracks visited but never seen a race

    Welland, Canada 1996. Did the Paris meeting the night before. Made the short journey to Welland. It was bright sunshine one hour before the start. We went into the bar and wow, did it rain!!! Looked out and the track vanished under water! Haven't made it back there... yet!

    Don Everly

    Sad loss. Always wanted to see the Everly Brothers. Closest I got was after the 1982 world Final we travelled up into the Ca high desert to Lancaster in the Antelope Valley. There was a speedway meeting on at the fairgrounds. We got there late in the day and had to pay full admission, it included the fair and show and a concert by one of the Everlys. Can't remember which one! They weren't getting on with each other at the time. After the speedway of which Andy Northrup was the winner we went to the concert area but it had just finished. It was strange chatting to the speedway crowd and telling them that the world final had been held the day before in LA. They asked who had won! It was an amazing contrast to 'happy hours' logjammed on the LA freeway.

    Eastbourne 2020

    Does the absent heat leader and a missing Ht:15 rider at Leicester have any influence on 'Northern Clubs' views??
