  1. Because he has a better average around the MPA than either Lambert or Bacon ??

    Redcar v Glasgow 17/5/18

    Jordan Stewart was remarkable last night. But please lets keep things in perspective. I'm pleased because I've been saying from day 1 when he wasn't scoring points that I'm watching a Speedway rider (and not some of the pretenders that we've seen here at Redcar in the past), safe, steady & professional. Let's not lumber him with the burden of "the next big thing'' though. Just let him ride! He'll be going to tracks he's never seen before all season long but if he continues to ride safe, steady and professional he'll do ok. Seems like a nice bloke too! Good luck Jordan.

    Guests & R/r

    Hi again everyone! As the AGM is taking place and we are expecting to hear of fixed race nights I thought I'd update the stats that I used when starting this thread. Back in August as my original post stated only 25 out of 117 Championship matches were 7 Home riders versus 7 Away riders (IE NO Rider Replacement and NO Guest riders) SINCE THEN (63 MATCHES LATER) ONLY 2 (TWO) MATCHES DID NOT CONTAIN RIDER REPLACEMENT AND/OR GUESTS. Yep, the totals for the season stand at only 27 out of 180. Whilst acknowledging that some form of coverage for injury is unfortunately required in our dangerous sport here's hoping that something can be dragged kicking and screaming from the AGM which will stop this constant Home Select v. Away Select joke that we have had inflicted on us this year.
  8. Mmmn. Paul Starke guests for Ben Barker on Monday and 'helps' his team drop to a totally meaningless 6th in the League. Ben Barker (thought he was injured?) then guests for Jack Holder on Thursday and as 2nd top scorer 'helps' Peterborough win the Knock Out Cup.
  9. So 5 days notice is reasonable notice?
  10. Ha ha ha! My favourite post of all time. Jacob Bukhave/Tai Woffinden. You couldn't make it up! I just hope it pees down on the nights of our scheduled matches because no-one under any circumstances should be forced to turn out without a team. Bloody ridiculous!

    Yes. Going by issue 43 of the averages. Bewley for Garrity and a 2 pointer for Ayres would come to 39.95 so assuming 40 point limit of course. We do still have 2 away fixtures to fulfil so this could change (as both are away fixtures would expect our averages to drop slightly (?) possibly giving more leeway.) PS can we please stop this inane 'your track is more dangerous than our track' garbage. All Speedway tracks are inherently dangerous - it's the nature of the sport in case you hadn't noticed!

    Newcastle V Redcar 3/9/17

    Sums up the full state of British speedway! It's very fast going down the pan and the state of the 'banter' on here is accelerating ahead of it. Even people from other teams who's posts I've appreciated over the years have sunk to personal, unwarranted jibes against other people. Sad, sad state.

    Ipswich V Redcar Saturday

    Ha ha ha. Thought you were nailed on for updates!
  14. So tomorrow 3 weeks will have gone by and still no-one has been punished for 'selling British Speedway down the river'

    Redcar V Sheffield Friday

    Hate to see 2 teams utilising r/r. In the 'good old days' (Crikey - sound like an old man (Who said 'You are'?)) when there were enough riders to go round r/r used to be cancelled out and both sides had to promote juniors. Also whatever happened to compulsory #8's. Neither side appears to have named a #8 (just waiting to see if anyone with a bike turns up tonight?). If no #8's are named it only takes 1 unfortunate incident early in proceedings to end up with 3 or even 2 men races later on. Seasons can hinge on such minor points.
