  1. British Under 21

    This was the last approved planning application seemingly (although there was one at a later date that was withdrawn, looks like there was a bit on there about racenights but it was removed): https://eplanning.birmingham.gov.uk/Northgate/PlanningExplorer/Generic/StdDetails.aspx?PT=Planning Applications On-Line&TYPE=PL/PlanningPK.xml&PARAM0=493062&XSLT=/Northgate/PlanningExplorer/SiteFiles/Skins/Birmingham/xslt/PL/PLDetails.xslt&FT=Planning Application Details&PUBLIC=Y&XMLSIDE=/Northgate/PlanningExplorer/SiteFiles/Skins/Birmingham/Menus/PL.xml&DAURI=PLANNING With one before that in 2010 stating: Looks like an oversight from our promotion sadly, very disappointing.

  3. Brummies v Bees - 28/03/2018

    Was judging on outside only so maybe it was busier than normal inside because of the weather. Down the main straight was pretty normal, quiet in the two temp stands on turn 1 where I stand though.
  4. Brummies v Bees - 28/03/2018

    Credit to the track staff for getting it on, looked bleak when we got in and it started raining again but after a tentative first couple of heats which cleared some of the surface water it held up pretty well. Promising for the Brummies, Davey's hot start for Swindon looks like no fluke and he was absolutely miles ahead of everyone, reminded me very much of Adam Ellis at #1 for us and Eastbourne a couple of years back, wouldn't shock me at all if he's got the highest average in the league come the end of the season. And he's going to be backed up very well by Danyon Hume who was also flying, he'll make an absolute mockery of his starting average if he stays fit. There's going to be some very good heat 13's (when Mitchell gets to #1) and 15's for us with those two. Bacon looked good too, had most of his success at #4 last year and not as a heat leader but hopefully with a couple of big hitters above him this year it'll take the pressure off a bit, hard to see a better HL trio in the league even at this early stage. Flint is definitely the real deal, going to be very exciting watching his progress this season. Cupitt looked like the rider from the first half of last season not the second, and 10 points from number 2 is very encouraging. Good to see them both get the outing in heat 15 whilst the rules allowed it. Walker a little disappointing, but plenty of leeway given for the tricky conditions and it being his debut, as long as he can chip in with 5 or 6 at home from that position then that'll be fine, and he'll probably end up at reserve once Flint's average goes up which will let him rack up a few more. Butcher unsurprisingly well off the pace (led Halder for a lap though) but that was all expected and we just need him to stay on his bike and pick up the pieces if anyone comes off, which he did to get his second place. Coventry were disappointing, Mountain will be a reliable high scorer, and Halder rode well, much like I expected him to when he guested for us last season and flattered to deceive. Armstrong and Harris the biggest disappointments though, Armstrong well off the pace and Harris has impressed me around PB before, so surprised for him to get 0 from 3 rides before winning a relatively low calibre heat 14. Not many Bees fans, not a fantastic turnout of Brummies either, not massively surprising with the weather I guess but hopefully now people have seen the Mason's will do everything to get the meeting on then it might encourage people to chance it a bit more in the future.

    Bacon signs for Peterborough, should be OK for home meetings but might miss a few away matches now?
  8. Birmingham 2018

    Yeah my bad I'd convinced myself the limit was 39.5 for some reason.
  9. Birmingham 2018

    Cupitt now officially signed, happy with that. 3.61 left? Halder looks like the best bet unless they've got a half decent 3 pointer up their sleeve.
  10. Coventry Bees Nl ?

  11. Birmingham 2018

    Not convinced Davey will be at Swindon long as they'll change it up when Morris' average drops after the first set of greensheets, but, we do have to plan as if he will be there the whole season just in case, so that should keep Mr Mason busy in January/February. Minimise clashes the first two months as an absolute minimum.
  12. Birmingham 2018

    Yup good signing but relying on him and Hume to put a couple of points on as Bacon probably won't and we are going to be short at second string. Best we could do after letting JPB go though, will take it.
  13. Birmingham 2018

    I expect Cupitt to be back on that average with how the team has been set up, should be able to get him in at reserve with Flint which would be a good pairing. Other two are wide open though, Lawlor said he had team news coming soon?
  14. Birmingham 2018

    Yup, very disappointing, feels like we're going to have to pull a couple of rabbit's out of the sleeve now.
