  1. Strange that Russia, the only country that has won the speedway of nations is missing on that list.
  2. Good call by Laguta and Sayfutdinov not to ride in this tomorrow
  3. It would be a perfect opportunity for a new promotion at Oxford. Lower costs, control over the way to run meetings and a chance to gauge crowd attendance. It would make more sense than being tied into the BSPL without voting rights.

    Why speedway is failing

    Perfectly feasible, six riders riding as pairs, for home and away teams. They only need to change helmet colours. The promoters could save eight riders travelling costs
  5. So if you win all 7 rides you lose a point ?
  6. Alan Grahame also tested a BSA in 1974
  7. The quote from the official BSPL statement on the under 21 WC qualification was. "It goes without saying that with their British commitments it absolutely was not possible for Tom and Drew to be able to do this. " How you wish to interpret that statement is up to you. I read it as due to the missed league meetings the promoters would not release the riders.
  8. But that must be a direct result from the 70's and 80's, when British promotors started running Sunday meetings, to stop "their" riders going abroad for bigger money. The promoters attitude to meetings overseas will never change and leave the GB an isolated backwater. GB speedway should be thankful for the riders who will participate to keep the showing the flag
  9. This is the problem with British speedway, to represent GB Adam Ellis would have lost money on the 10th of July. It was good to see GB represented, thank you, to the three riders Earlier this season two riders were refused permission to ride in an under 21 qualifying round, because of GB commitments ( promotors worried about league points ) While the this attitude persists the status of GB speedway Internationally will never improve.
  10. Good to see the threat of a ban has been lifted, Nicki is in the line up tonight in Poland

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Written like a true journalist, keep up the good work
  12. Reading the press statement it is the BSPL that has stopped them attending, due to British commitments.

    Perhaps they are finding ways to stop the IOW from running
  14. I would have thought the climate change poster was more important, planning for the next lockdowns
  15. I will concede that, there is a limit on the stadium until the 21st of June
