    Ben Fund

    like many others i have booked accommodation so later start not a big issue. however, yet again this is another kick in the teeth. i'd reckon crowd will be down 50%..

    with| Leicester vacating Saturdays, Stoke becomes an even more likely venue for us on our weekend footy/speedway doubles. I sincerely hope they can run more regularly to avoid ridiculous end of season off night stagings and/or daft start times to get in double headers that short change the public. This promotion frustrates the hell out of me and has done for more years than i can remember... the track could be one of the best around....if only...

    Dave Rattenberry Rip

    Over the last 10 years we really got to know each other (meeting regularly at both Speedway and non-league footy). Last time I saw him was merely 2 weeks ago and upon parting his handshake lasted longer than usual and i sensed it may be the last time... He's gone with me owing him 2 coffees.....Going to Monmore won't seem the same...Some people you just hit it off with and Dave was one of those...at least he was out and about till near the end...RIP mate.
  6. Anyone know what time this meeting was scheduled to start please? ta It's ok, found it - 7.30. Just had a feeling that with 25 heats in the middle of October they might have started earlier.....
  7. Hi, anyone able to help? Hull's 2nd meeting after opening at New Craven Park. In 2nd half v Belle Vue.. Anyone able to confirm which of the two was riding please? thanx in advance....
  8. hell of a lot of pressure on wolves now to keep the run going with the rest of the league rooting for them..

    Kent V Lakeside Mon 14th Aug 6-30 Pm

    meanwhile..back at Kent..unless it was because i was sitting a lot lower in the stand tonight but i thought the groove at kent wasn't so apparent tonight..looked to me like track was better prepared. You'd have got good odds on a kent win before start of heat 15....jack thomas rode his heart out all night..deserved to be on winning side

    Capacity Of Uk Speedway Stadiums

    the (london) olympic stadium might hold a few more.
  15. This shocker was prominent on the back page of last night's issue... "Eight day's to go before your super seven hero's are in action again at Foxhall"
  16. If I heard him right the guy on the mike on Wednesday said something along the lines of "If we (the spectators) don't get our fingers out there won't be any speedway to come to".. He didn't have my full attention so I'm not sure what prompted him to say this..

    Eastbourne V Kent 1-7-2017

    I wonder what the Kent boys made of seeing a track surface without a blue groove after 6 heats!

    Lakeside V Iow Sun 25th June 3 Pm

    I'm afraid this was on a par with the Arena vs Bradford off-night staging in 1996 for entertainment. The haves and have nots of the NL the last couple of years reminds me of the conference when it first started...

    Points Awarded !

    having been to Coventry for the fiasco against poole I now read this....It's a shocking abuse of the paying public. (I don't care what the 'rules' are..this is not on!)

    Cycle Speedway Bit On Bbc News

    I saw two meets at Crawley Tigers in 1981 when they raced in the London League. The track was in cherry Lane, Langley Green. I don't believe the track exists anymore.
  23. looking at the line-ups looks s to me like tigers will be tested round west row for a change
  24. If racing of that quality results from the track preparation that was possible then do that every week! Superb racing from start to finish.
