    It's just a shame that the, and I use the term very loosely, music is utter toilet

    "The Robins chief was instrumental in the preparation of the racing surface leading up to the first five British Speedway Grand Prixs held at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff." ... And who remembers what death traps they were!
  3. Andy Hackett, always seemed to be too good at reserve and not quite good enough for second string and this was when the British League was a lot lot stronger than it is these days. From memory he just seemed to be making a bit of a breakthrough at Coventry then broke his ankle and never really recovered... Didn't he end up at Oxford before retiring?

    Loyalty? I don't think I ever saw him ride for BV at Coventry because he was always riding for somebody else!

    There should be no reason for any match to take longer than 90 minutes. Just because you're in attendance sometimes for over 2 and a half hours doesn't mean you're getting better vfm

    Not the most pressing... But it's easy to rectify and a quick win

    By my calculations, that's 15 x 4 minutes which equals 1 hour... How the hell is it normally taking them over twice that long then?

    Speedway Star in the winter

    You'll know that speedway has hit rock bottom when the Star appears as the guest magazine on the missing words round of Have I Got News For You!

    Was it a financial success though?

    Absolutely not in the short term... But it opens up the possibility to do so in the longer term, the way things were, as has been proved over the decline of the last 50 years or so, big ideas were almost impossible to implement

    Rider control? If all assets have been transferred to the company. Meaningful shareholder meetings to push rules through, share sales if an interested party comes along wanting to buy the sport, collective bargaining power for purchasing shale or riders time, spread of profit/loss. I think this could be the most positive step in years for the sport
