    Last Saturday it Rained continuously for nearly 24 Hours and has Rained at sometime or other every day since and the weather forecast for the next few days is rain at times every day including Saturday so if you can`t get it dry enough to get on the track to prepare it then it`s better to call the Meeting off.Just a say on the amount of Rain that fell on the Saturday Friday Night my Garden water butt had about 2 inches in it Sunday Morning 9-0am it was full and overflowing and this is a 45 gallon Drum and all off an 8x6 shed so You can gather what went on a Speedway Track

    just had a word with Dave Tattum and he has said that they are putting the price for parking anywhere in the stadium up to 2 pound a car this season.

    The trouble is only caused by the Stock Cars but because the Stadium is called Stoke Speedway they assume that every meeting is a Speedway meeting. The Stoke Speedway meetings cause no mither at all . The thing is the Stock Cars Promotion charge for parking in the Stadium ,where the Speedway do not and can park inside.The trouble now is as of last Sunday the stocks fans seeing the Yellow Lines are now parking on the Grass verges that are on the side so that will soon become a mess so I suppose then the Residents will once more start moaning.The other thing is the Stadium was there a few Years before the Houses so by buying one they new or should have known that the Stadium was there.

    As Adonis has Quoted Previously the Lights went out after Shelby hit the Fence the reason being as he hit the fence the fence hit and severed the cable of the Red Light on the post behind the fence thus causing a short circuit that put the Lights out so were not the cause of the accident.

    Alarm bells at Plymouth?

    I think it was about 1960 when the Provincial League was formed and ran very successfully and I believe about 1965 they were invited back into the Fold because the other league was Foundering and down to a Few Teams.

    Stoke v Eastbourne September 8

    You are Joking it had rained continuous through Thursday Night Friday night and was pouring down most of Saturday no way would there have been a Meeting no way of the track drying out so to stop people travelling it was called off. You don`t think that Promotors call meetings off for the fun of it after they have put the work in

    Stoke v Brummies NL Sat 1st Sep

    Before you post things make sure you know that it`s Right the last meeting at Stoke was against Kent which was completed.But Hey Oh lets have go at Stoke
  9. If You read the Report and see the Photos then anyone with a Brain would see that if a Meeting took place and a Rider went under the fence then there would or could have been a serious accident or Fatality but Hey Oh here we go again from a Cradley Fan and a Brummie that's always got to have a go at Stoke the Damage was caused by the Stock Car meeting when the cars just ripped the Armico to pieces ,apparently some class of Car that hasn`t raced there before so I should think that it was the Right Decision to call the Meeting off

    If this meeting had been at Stoke with all the Falls the forums would have been on Fire slagging one thing or another off as it seems only Stoke gets the Flack.

    Stoke V Kent (NLKOC) 14/07/18

    The other 2 races would have been completed but for one of the injuries don`t think the 9 day will make any difference it might have been the Groin Injury that will take longer to get over

    No Problem Jason cheers

    Stoke V Kent (NLKOC) 14/07/18

    Nothing to do with Track conditions Jason just down to perhaps Rider error with the 2 Younger ones but the Track passed all the SCB requirements by the SCB track inspector Alan Bridgett By Referee Craig Ackroyd and the Trackman sent to assist by SCB Terry, not one Rider complained about the Track and as you know they have Falls in Speedway even GPs The injuries were Chipped Collar Bone a Broken Thumb and a Groin Injury.

    Tony does come to Stoke quite a few times during the Season He was never named as the Promotor but perhaps a background advisor to John Woolridge or when Graham and Denise Drury took over for a short spell.

    I myself was disappointed that it was called off but I believe that the heavy bought of rain we had on Wednesday afternoon and through Thursday night and a localised quite heavy rain in the Morning of Saturday the Track was wet it did not stop raining from early morning till dinnertime where I live about a mile from the track but as usual with Postponements after being called off the weather improves but it is the problems caused Earlier and I cannot see that the Promotion wants to call it off, what would people who travelled from Kent have to say if they had arrived and then it was called off but Stoke are not the only Team to have called off meetings this year think on the horrible weather we have had earlier in the Season
