    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    My star again didn’t come on Thursday or Friday this week so I emailed for a digital issue and it came through very quickly, I will be seriously considering this for the future, very impressed. Paper copy arrived in Saturdays post, that’s 4 days for RM to deliver something 24 miles away, absolutely abysmal.

    Peterborough Panthers 2021

    Exactly my point, basically some teams have gained an advantage by using older Rising Stars, if every Premiership team had used a rising star with little or no Championship experience their would have been no real difference. I think Palin is a cracking young rider and in time could be very good but he isn’t at the same level at the moment that Josh Bates or Tom Bacon are, if Rising stars had been given 4, 3, 2 and 1 point starting GSA and were included in a 1-7 team total I doubt a few teams would have built the same way.

    I wouldn’t put money on it

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    A very good question.

    Not really, Michael Lee was actually quite good on any speedway track

    Very true

    Peterborough Panthers 2021

    The point exactly, the sport needs to get the tracks to produce racing not gate and go crap that does nothing for no one. Good racing will attract fans, that and getting back to encouraging teams to sign just our own locally grown talent will go a long way to avoiding problems like the Polish league rules in the future.

    MPT is 6.30 and Harris 6.01 with his discount.

    Peterborough Panthers 2021

    Latest news on ET website is No Iversen or Tungate for Panthers in 2021 and each Premiership & Championship team will include one rider from a pool of youngsters introduced to each team presumably at no 7. The story is by Nigel Pearson.

    Knowing what Batchelor's like I suspect it was right the first time.

    BSPL AGM

    From the BSPA WEBSITE BRITISH Speedway clubs have today agreed a start date of early May for the 2021 season. Fixtures will be published next week for both the Premiership and Championship. Plans are in place for a new concept in both leagues with more details to follow. The plans have been made to adapt to the current situation regarding Polish restrictions on the amount of leagues riders can race in, plus the ongoing challenges presented by the pandemic. There is a clear pathway for the development of British Speedway and young British riders, not just in 2021 but in the years ahead. In addition, whilst there is disappointing news about losing Swindon and Somerset for 2021, these decisions have been made by these clubs to protect their futures from 2022 onwards. They will be welcomed back into the sport next year. Another club has expressed an interest in joining the Championship and this will be explored in due course. More details regarding the 2021 season will be revealed alongside our broadcast partners Eurosport in the coming days.

    Clear plastic envelopes shouldn’t dictate anything, that’s the stamps job. If the RM cannot cope with current demand it should take on more staff.

    It’s not a lot better complaining to RM, standard computer generated email in reply.

    Newcastle 2020

    Looking like non British riders are now an expensive option, especially for the Championship

    It was good Tim , another regular that’s always a good read.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Mine arrived on time today and what a read it is. Some great stories this week, I particularly liked the Castagna, Tatum and Refs stories and the potted history of the KO Cup is an excellent series. The FIM supremo certainly had some choice words for the U.K. Promoters and to be fair a lot of what he said made sense.

    All I got was a computer generated general reply mentioning COVID problems. Their complaint system is utter rubbish a bit like their deliveries at the moment.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    I must be honest and say I have been tempted to try it, Phil have you ever thought of giving subscribers one or two free digitals to try it when renewing annual subscriptions. As an afterthought what percentage of subscribers are digital.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    I think their is enough comment to suggest local sorting offices are holding back magazines when they are under pressure with big demand, our postmen mentioned that that other weekly magazines were at least two days late this week. What makes it worse is the only thing my Postman delivered today was four pieces of junk mail.

    It’s pretty bad in the Peterborough area, myself and several local friends are all still waiting for this weeks copy, which considering we are about 10-15 miles away from the printers just shows how hopeless RM is.

    Mine has been back to its regular Thursday for a few weeks now, some great stories in recent weeks.

    The incident was on August 15th 2005, the star match report mentions it following Panthers 46-44 win at Poole on the night.

    It was JBJ just not in 2007, more likely 2006 when he scored 10 in a Panthers win at Wimborne Road.
