    Leicester Lions 2021

    Birmingham has only been postponed for three weeks, not closed.

    Whats actually going on?

    One problem with British speedway is that it is NOT organised as clubs, as in Poland. I was once told by a promoter - and this is when it was in the National League - that "*** Speedway is a commercial organisation ... it does not do training". Which, of course, explains the attitude of most promoters, who comprise the membership of the BSPL.

    New tyres.

    Which 'old' tyre? The hard Barum tyre introduced a few years ago used to break up instead of wearing down.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Well, I did this, and a fortnight later, no copy has turned up.
  6. So why didn't Berwick protest it? Anyway, even if Nichol's score is removed, you would still lose!
  7. No use being bitter ... Grobauer was at an FIM meeting. In any case, the meeting was won by Birmingham regular riders - Harris, Morris,etc - not the guests.
  8. Which is probably why Birmingham tried to put the match back (like the Edinburgh and Newcastle ones) but Berwick refused.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    I haven't been able to buy a copy of last week's Star, which I particularly wanted as the season opening edition. Can I order one, or will some be available at track shops at any time?

    Odsal

    Allegedly, Tony Mole spent a quarter of a million in setting up the Perry Barr track: and that was in an existing stadium.
  13. Some years ago, I transported a rider to meetings. George Rothery was his main rival in Novice class at Scunthorpe back in 2014! George once smashed Chris' front wheel in an over-enthusiastic overtake, which annoyed Chris' step-brother considerably, but personally I think that it was just racing. I am glad to see that George is progressing so well.
  14. Why not? No Aussie with any sense would come here except for a bit of tourism or temporary work, such as riding a speedway bike.
  15. On this morning's news, the talks were said to be going well. The rest of your comments is a non-sequitur: while the fuss over the Romanians was justified, I can't see that 25 million Aussies will want to come here. They are better off at home, except for a season's speedway.
