    Birmingham Brummies 2019

    Very interesting. I remember having a look at the present stadium, which was in a derelict state, before attending a meeting at the Ladbrokes Perry Barr track across the road back in the early 1980's.

    Wembley Memories

    The last era of New Cross progs are worth about £2 tops. They must have printed loads at the time.
  3. When i worked at Wimbledon in the 1980's, if the weather forecast was favourable we used to flood the track for three days leading up to the meeting. This ensured the water got right into the base and made it a lot easier to manage on a race day.
  4. Like you say, dusty afternoon meetings are nothing new. Some of my earliest speedway memories as a kid, were watching dust bowls at West Ham and Rayleigh.
  5. It was dusty today and the breeze didn't help. Hopefully the next meeting will be switched to an evening start to help with the track preparation.
  6. The track is the most important part of the business, but the majority of the promoters just don't get it.
  7. I'll be watching them with interest at Kent on monday. Hopefully they can give the Kings a tough match.

    The GRA only run Perry Barr and Belle Vue now, and the latter is due to be redeveloped. I'm pretty sure the council own the land at Brum, otherwise that would be flogged off as well, just like Hall Green.
  9. Good friday is traditionally such a big payday, I'm sure they'd rather run with a few absentees.
  10. Zach and Shanes are grasstrackers. A totally different mindset when it comes to bumpy tracks.
  11. Good luck to those of you going tonight. I think I'll wait a while until a few meetings have been ridden on it.
  12. Correct, i remember the hole in the wooden safety fence caused by the impact.
  13. I was at the SKY meeting against Oxford when PK got injured. It was a sickening crash, where have all those years gone.
