    Premiership Supporters Cup

    The race format will be as listed above, but modified to reflect the current situation where the No.1 goes off gates 3 or 4 in heat 1. A couple of other gates have also been adjusted to give riders a ride off each gate. (Apart from the Reserves who may only get 3 rides in the meeting). The new Regulations are available on the SCB site (Downloads)

    Poole 2019

    How was that cheating? No rules were broken? It was sour grapes from the promoter who got out-Forded!
  3. I have just seen on the BBC F1 site that the driver with the Fastest Lap time during the race will receive an extra (Bonus Point), providing he finishes in the top 10. Could Speedway eventually follow suit with a fastest Race win BP? That could make the Qualifying/Practice times more crucial in choice of starting number.

    2019 season starts and ....

    Nothing happens.. he is OK until he is 19.

    2019 Regulations

    The way I read it is that anyone under 19 can be absent for ANY reason....

    Leicester 2019

    The weather is looking pretty favourable too!
  7. Can't you use the free 'Buggy' taxi from the car park?

    Ice Speedway 2018/19

    Martin Haarahiltunen replaced by Jimmy Tuinstra in Inzell. (See above) Shishegov still listed as riding.

    2019 Predictions

  10. Slightly off topic, but relevant to Barry, I would like to thank him for his 'attendance' at last week's Nuneaton SSC talk in. Barry was due to appear in person but had a late change of plans with a business trip to Thailand (or Phillipines?), but still took part via a video link/facetime despite the fact that it was 3:00 am in Asia. He was on-line for quite a while and gave quite detailed responses to questions and didn't seem in a hurry to get some shuteye! Thanks Barry.

    Glasgow 2019 Onwards

    Probably with a pen?

    Kings Lynn 2019

    I don't, who are they then?
  13. It's quite simple really.....the Referee would start the timer with the tapes button and the transponder would stop the timing when it crosses the line.
  14. It's first past the post, not who did the fastest time, although logically in most cases, that is the same person. Otherwise you could have a rider deliberately missing the gate by a few second to give himself a free run around at the back in a faster time than the rider who crosses the line first?
  15. There is a Regulation that states a minimum time period (1 I/2 seconds?) between the Green Light and Tapes up. There is also a Regulation that the riders must remain still at the start. So if Referee sees a rider moving/rolling he has every right to delay the start until all 4 are stationary.
  16. Heats 1-42 are technically just qualifiers for the Final. 2nd and 3rd placed teams (After 42 Heats) race off in Heat 43 to see who faces 1st placed team in Heat 44 for the Title. If Heat 43 is a draw (3-3) riders finishing 2nd and 3rd go through to the Final.
  17. The new regulations are:- If the Grand Final heat 44 ends in a 3-3 then there will be a Run off with one rider from each nation nominated by the team manager to race off for the SoN world championship.
  18. Ah, so Free Practice becomes a slow bicycle race!

    Rev Limiters

    The considered opinion is that Rev Limiters only have any effect at the start. Back in my days as a 17 year old owner of a Triumph Tiger Cub, we had a rev limiter! Only it was just called a throttle in those days!
  20. A brilliant tactical point, but.... Zmarzlik would have to make sure he has next pick to be sure to get the better gate. With timing down to hundredths of a second, how will he know what time to beat, and to achieve? What if his run is before Tai's?
  21. Only the Rider drawn at No.1 gets 5 starts after the track grade, but he does get two starts off the I/S gate.

    Belle Vue 2019

    League matches only for Green Sheets.

    Belle Vue 2019

    He needs one more Home League match. BV first Home League match is 29th April, and with the cut off being 23rd April, I don’t think his average would actually change until 6th May. He would do 3 away League matches prior to 6th May.

    Premiership Supporters Cup

    Maybe it was better than naming them just Group A and Group B?

    Thank you to the BSPA

    Agreed, and/or the Start Marshall. But the referee just applied the rules.
