    Plymouth v Kent 5th

    But you were connected to a previous Plymouth promotion, were you not? The above post hardly inspires confidence if this is the typical mindset of a speedway promotion.

    David Wallinger Ludicrous situation.

    So, unless I have misinterpreted the general trend of opinion on this thread, David Wallinger is not in a ludicrous situation?
