  1. Thoughts from a Wolves fan.... After another wasted journey, following Somerset (a) rain-off last Wednesday, we stopped in a Pub just of the A14 and discussed the strong possibility of a 'dreaded' double-header next Wednesday. Our ideas for getting the 30 heats run efficiently included:- 1) Moving the starting gate to the other side as it shortens the distance from pits to tapes. 2) Reducing the 2 min time warning to 1 minute. Both teams to agree: Clerk of the course to do his job! * saves 30 mins on the night. 3) First race starts promptly at advertised time. 4) Frank Ebdon as referee. 5) Back-up Medical cover 6) Limited on-track tractor time. 7) Riders to get to the tapes and stay there! 8) Heat 15 line-up to be sorted before heat 14 finishes. ** Team Managers to 'gee;' their riders up. 9) Wolves not to use Sarjeant as a guest! ... yes the 'Church End' beer was good. See you next week for "Midnight In Norfolk".
  2. Zdenek Kudrna: As a Wolves fan I was always amazed to see him turn up at Birmingham Speedway in his Austin Allegro with a bike rack on the back; knowing he had driven from Czecho overnight. I would have been frightened to cover the distance from my home to Perry Barr in an Allegro in that condition. Fair play to him! Sam Tesar: The only speedway rider to have the same nickname as the track lighting at where he rode..... Peterborough - "The Dark Shadow".
  3. Swindon v Leicester: A & B fixtures 12 days apart. It gets worse next week.... King's Lynn v Wolves: A & B fixtures are 9 days apart! It's a good job Premiership doesn't ride on Fridays or the fixtures could be cancelled completely. .
  4. ..... and £3.00 to park your car!

    Does Torquay plans include greyhound track and a speedway circuit?

    Wolves vs Belle Vue . 23/07/18

    ...... and "'Brum" takes the bait..... everytime. It makes looking at any Wolves topic not worth the effort. Well done lads. Sad times.'

    Wolves v Somerset 9/7/18

    C'mon Fred surely Brum is laughing at your #1 dropping his average so he can drop down a division?
  9. Correct - but sadly the old style No:8's are already occupying the #6 & #7 berths.
  10. Both teams using r/r is another good advert for TV (not).
  11. Hi folks, any recommendations for a Pub local to the track that does good food and beer prior to the meeting? Thanks

    It's a good job we kept the first leg score close at Belle Vue!
  13. Perhaps the word "Fan" is missing from the title?
  14. Perhaps it's rider replacement for Woryna at #2 with Woryna at reserve and then naming Woryna at #8 to avoid confusion??

    Is it time to drop down a league and go back to Saturday nights then?
