    I'm not for one moment saying they should, but... how long before the twins can/will be binned off and replaced with more experienced reserves?

    Eurosport are running a Black Friday deal on Eurosport Player (for those that can't get Eurosport) 12 months for £19.99 https://promo-gb.eurosportplayer.com/promo/all-sports/black-friday-2019?utm_campaign=UK-EU-E1-EU-C1-G-BAU-DR-W-AllSports-Undefined-161213-Eurosportplayer-P-BMM-BrandCore-NA&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google&utm_content=Brand+|+Eurosport+Player+|+BMM&utm_term=%2Beurosport+%2Bplayer&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIxqezpM395QIVCrDtCh0YSAlfEAAYASAAEgLEVfD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds I don't know for sure but you may also be able to use a VPN to access their other European streams, I think they show EPL in Romania for example. Deal expires on the 2/12/19

    Maybe run a "masters series" as a 2nd half to bring some old punters back, all riding standard equipment supplied by the club?

    They'll just concentrate on the leader like they always do Speedway brought in a points system so complex I need to take my laptop with me to work out who's got how ever many points

    Let's not be too quick to write Scott off, especially at CL level. He captained the side to the Championship and finished top of the averages, he may not be as competitive as he used to be at the highest level but he is one of a handful of riders (in the CL) that have mastered BP and I would pay to watch. The place will be poorer without him.
  8. How about the winner of the GP is awarded (or deducted?) enough points by winning the race to place them 1 point above the 2nd placed rider in the meeting... I can't work out whether I'm joking or not
  9. Didn't Prince Albert () attend the first Cardiff GP with a view of holding one in Monaco? Obviously never happened. How about a GP on the Isle of Man during TT Week?

    Even the fans get a mention!
  11. Castanga says “The main thinking for us is to harmonise our championship scoring system with other big sports events so that the winner always comes away with the most points, which will help attract and retain a wider audience for our sport.” I can't think of any other World Championship series that has 2 semis and a final, although no doubt somebody will correct me. So if you want to harmonise with "other big sports" (and that's a whole different argument as to whether Speedway is a "big sport") then award the points after 20 heats... other wise leave well alone
  12. Now the Poles know how we feel

    If it's anything like the relationship with the fans it won't last long

    Speedway On 'The Chase'

    Reading the OP, it's almost as if I've watched the show myself anyway
  15. I used to follow Leicester Speedway on Twitter... until they blocked me, turns out they didn't want to hear my opinions during one of the debacles that were run at BP this year. So perhaps that is buzzing? I'll never know. It's easier than ever before for somebody to interview somebody or take video using a mobile phone and upload it to a website... yet still nothing
