  1. A lot of that is down to the local authority, hence stock cars at Ipswich, yet none at Mildenhall.
  2. Didn't all the great promoters of the past treat every meeting like a one off event. If you can't big up the product you are trying to sell, what chance do you have. As an IOW regular, i would say that Barry's communication skills go down well with the punters. Keeping the fans involved is a big plus, especially when I'm making a mad dash for the 21.47 ferry. I always remember Johnnie Hoksins greeting every fan as he passed through the turnstiles at Canterbury. That's what you call customer care!
  3. The bounce might not happen, if admission prices are at their current rate. We are in a world wide recession and the cost to the public has to reflect this.

    The Gollob v Boyce punch up was tremendous entertainment!

    I was there that day, it certainly was a surreal moment. The golden boy couldn't believe the crowds reaction.

    I also went to the two at Hackney Sid, plus one each at both Bradford and Coventry.

    That's why i went to Scunny on Sunday. My 2nd live meeting of the year. I'm hoping for 3rd!

    To be honest with you Steve, I'm a live sport man. I don't really enjoy watching televised Football or Speedway. I'd much rather go and watch a live event. If the GP was held at a decent track like the NSS, I'd probably go. After 10 visits to the poor temporary track at Cardiff, i decided I'd had enough.

    I tape every GP Steve, but i never get round to watching them. It's the concept that bores me. I haven't watched any of the streamed Polish League meetings. I've only ever been interested in domestic league racing. I've been to plenty of overseas speedway venues in the past, but i knocked that on the head years ago. Prehaps it's because I'm too stuck in my ways, like a lot of speedway fans.

    Most hated (respected) rider!!

    Yes it was. One of the highlights of my young speedway life, was watching Preben Rosenkilde beating Olsen at West Ham, i loved it!

    Life's all about opinions Steve. I find the GP's boring, but i appreciate a lot of people love them. I really enjoyed attending the British youth championship at Scunthorpe last Sunday, but some fans wouldn't cross the road to watch it.

    It was always Mauger for me. I hated his shenanigans at the starting gate, rolling backwards and forwards all the time. Although when i went with the great man on his farewell tour to Poland, i did feel a bit guilty!

    I've never liked the GP's, but this is probably an age thing. I miss the excitement and drama of a one off world final. Lady luck sometimes played a massive part on the outcome. GP's can never replicate that.

    I used to have a Wally Loak taped recording of the 1967 West Ham v Coventry KOC final. It was facinating to hear Dave Lanning trying to calm down an irate Custom House crowd!
