    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2020

    Falling star anyone
  2. Or even their pedantic sidekicks
  3. 2% over 10 years is what’s been reported on the GP site.

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2020

    That ship has well and truly sailed, rides as a New Zealand rider in all recent WC qualifiers which is the deciding factor I am told.

    Premiership League Prediction 2021

    Every track has some home track advantage although it clearly varies from track to track. Belle Vue is no different.

    Peterborough Panthers 2021

    It’s an old team I don’t think anyone can dispute that, as to whether that will affect its ability to do well remains to be seen. Things will become clearer in May but as long as the track is set up to suit our team of racers I don’t see too much of a problem and look forward to a return of the racing.

    SGB Premiership Confirmed Teams 2021

    Palin is a talent I don’t think many will argue with that, but as you say Bates and Bacon have a clear advantage over most of the other no 7,s.

    SGB Premiership Confirmed Teams 2021

    Josh Bates final 2019 GSA is 5.20, bearing in mind he is likely to ride at no 7 how on earth can it be right to compare him with any of the other Rising stars riding at no 7 who have yet to ride in the Premiership. Its ludicrous.

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Of course that’s assuming they all start when they usually do, at the moment it isn’t looking too promising.

    Who knows, for some reason no one provides starting GSA anymore.

    Certainly looks like the best option going forward, I will be changing when my subs needs renewing

    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.

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

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

    Sheffield 2020

    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
