    Norden Stadium

    Me too, it shows what a load of old fogies we are. I really enjoyed the 1987 two day final. You can't beat a long weekend in Amsterdam!

    Canterbury v Red Star 30 August 1980

    Right Steve, I've finally found my completed programme. Barney Kennett did score 7 and Kevin Brice 2. Kennett finished third in front of Brice in heat 7. Denzil Kent did take a tac sub ride in heat 10 and scored a total of 7 points.

    I do, i went to the meeting. I will try and dig it out tomorrow.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    Surely the season ticket price of £450 is an error. If you add up the 26 meetings it comes to £464, or does the deal include a free programme.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    Wait for the dreaded curfew to kick in a few times. £22 will seem like daylight robbery.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    Speedway is rapidly approaching the point of unaffordability for a lot of people. The sport desperately needs new punters, but who will pay those prices. For the first time in 50 years of watching speedway, i am considering my options. The sport offers such poor value for money, i struggle to see how much longer it can survive in its present form.

    Possible Odsal news

    I went to two fog affected meetings at Arena Essex in the mid 1990's. One was called off at start time and the other only run, because Lew Stripp refereed it from the centre green due to the poor visability!

    Danny Ayres RIP

    What a tragedy, a true entertainer. I was lucky enough to watch Danny ride on a regular basis for the Kent Kings.

    Soldier Boy

    As a kid i thought he was a right nutter, but looking back now, i reckon he was a just great wind up merchant.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    No suprise there. Len wouldn't entertain it.

    Rye House 2020

    No different to the Weir really. The stadium was situated in quite a rural location. It's a concrete jungle now.

    Rye House 2020

    I'd be flabbergasted if Rye got a thousand people turn up for third tier racing. That would be a good crowd for championship level. If the revamped stadium does include speedway in it's plans, then surely professional racing must be the aim.

    Rye House 2020

    To make Rye House stadium fit to stage public events again is going to cost a lot of money. The old place looked a tip at December's Dragons meeting. I applaud anyone who is prepared to take the project on.

    Rye House 2020

    Too right. When i attended my first meeting as a kid way back in 1968, he was already promoting at Hackney and Rayleigh!

    Rye House 2020

    I'd be suprised if Len took another track on at his age. The old boy can't go on forever, can he?
