    REDCAR 2019

    Well you are doing the announcing it would appear, nothing official until the full team is revealed at the Social event on Friday evening. Unless that's changed.

    Does he ride in Denmark on a Friday though? Lots of people are suggesting this may be an issue for the Bears.

    Worrying Times at Redcar

    I suppose things that are endangered need protecting.

    Worrying Times at Redcar

    Why do they have to change night? If they do I would have to assume it would be Friday, which doesn’t work well for me but may do for other families with kids. Not particularly enamoured by the 38 point limit.

    Thanks for the confirmation.

    Championship limit is 38?

    Not that I have any knowledge but I think the cancellation of the Ben meeting had zero to do with lack of track work.

    Worrying Times at Redcar

    That's what it sounds like - even with a poor team this season we still normally got decent racing on a track. False economy not paying for a decent track imo.

    Worrying Times at Redcar

    Given this mornings news from Peterborough maybe it makes more sense, or maybe not. My comment earlier was a reflection of the excellent work Kevin Keay had done over the last 2 years and disappointment that he would no longer be involved.

    Worrying Times at Redcar

    I find the statement that the "directors have a different agenda" pretty worrying to be honest. Hope it's not a case of cutting your nose off to spite your face.
  11. I emailed the SGP organisers and the reply back I had was:- "The date of September 21st has been confirmed for this event with 17:00 start time."

    Redcar v Newcastle Thursday

    No one seems to know - what we need is one of the people from "around the country" making enquiries to tell us.
  13. Good job the much maligned Ben Barker rode well as a guest otherwise it could have been a much bigger defeat.

    Redcar v Workington 23/8/18

    Well the Comets fan next to me agreed that Proctor had gone down untouched and was very lucky to be in the re-run. We all see things from our own teams perspective but occasionally your own team is in the wrong (whichever team that is).

    Redcar v Workington 23/8/18

    Bit of everything in that meeting - some excellent racing, a few falls, some mechanical failures, some interesting refereeing decisions and a last heat decider. Comets fans were complaining that the Heat 8 exclusion of Jensen (which lead to the missing point) was a mistake while , as a Bears fan, I think Proctor was very lucky to be allowed back into Heat 13 (and subsequent 5-1 to the Comets) when he went down untouched on the first turn. Bears were inconsistent as usual - Thomas doesn't seem to be able to recreate his KL form (or his visiting rider form) for the Bears and the Andersons blow hot and cold. Excellent debut for Lunna and Berge looked better tonight despite his fall and mechanical issues. Bewley is a class act and Proctor was good generally (but not in Heat 15 fortunately).

    Redcar v Workington 23/8/18

    Well it’s piddling down where I am and forecast up to 7 doesn’t look good. Typical as it’s been dry all day.
  17. Well the later date works better for me, will be attending my first Cardiff GP with my son. The start time is now saying 2pm local time - is this confirmed? Was hoping for 5pm or later as it's a long trek from the North East. EDIT - Confirmed as a 5pm start now.
  18. You are obviously hard pressed to come up with anything positive to say. You sound In Creasingly frustrated Nice for the Bears not to be the team getting tonked for a change.

    Redcar v witches 26th july

    MBA fell awkwardly on the first bend and had to push his bike off the track so the race wasn't stopped. Ironically Wallinger was more competitive in his later rides than the race he scored his point in, where he was miles behind.

    Redcar v witches 26th july

    Can’t agree that Berge is another Kus. Kus would not have come from the back and got past Proctor like Berge did tonight. Battled hard in his last ride for a point too. Enigmatic - yes. Frustrating - yes. Kus mark II - no. Plus I’ve yet to see him look down at his bike when he’s at the back

    Redcar v witches 26th july

    Well despite yet another home defeat it was actually a pretty entertaining meeting with some excellent racing. Nip and tuck for most of the meeting until the Witches 5 - 1 in Ht15. Bears just incredibly inconsistent which has been the case all season with always 2 or 3 riders (different riders each week) not contributing. All of them are capable of winning races at home but they are "up and down like a brides nightie" Witches top 5 rode the track very well and were too consistent for the Bears.

    Redcar v witches 26th july

    Richie is fine with the track - won quite a lot of races there when he remembers which way to turn, it’s just the supporters he has issues with. Its a mutual thing

    Ipswich v Redcar 19/7/18

    Nice to see a reply that mentions that the Bears actually took part in the meeting. Was beginning to think I’d imagined it

    Ipswich v Redcar 19/7/18

    Given the comments pre-meeting on here and on the updates site it would appear the supporters of the “once mighty” Witches might want to adjust their expectations down slightly. Nice to see an improved away performance from the Bears - TJ and JBA improving after last weeks home horror show.
