    Sorry Steve, was still typing when you posted. Didn't mean to steal your thunder.

    Seems that WML had several speedway related guests. I can remember Graham Drury on, what I assume was, a later edition. Emlyn Hughes was a panelist and it was a female presenter (still racking my brain to recall who) who said he would be impressed as Drury was a sportsman. Drury declared he was an ice speedway rider , turning on his fuel tap before the start of his first race. Hughes later presented a sports show featuring "real" ice speedway from Italy and seemingly knew far more about the sport then; aka had a good researcher feeding him the info.

    The late Kevin Holden was one of the riders. Mike Reid referred to them having an item of equipment missing, from when he goes to speedway (so potentially another celebrity fan) , when they rode around the studio. Kevin advised it was the steel shoe and explained its use on the track.

    Double Headers With Same Team

    Not the best example. The first match decided which of the 2 competing sides won the league title that season, a bit like it being a one off play off final . The Leicester match was a Midland Cup tie, which I don't believe was a major draw. As a stand alone therefore the Hull match would no doubt have pulled the same crowd, on its own with the second match being little more than an end of season challenge of little interest. . That said I have no issues with such fixtures and attended the double header at Sheffield last year (Edinburgh and Ipswich) (and a 400 mile round trip) which was brilliantly run and great VFM, much to the chagrin of the usual dissenters, who never had any intention of attending and wished it had been a failure to extend their moan fest. Considering the Ipswich fixture had only been rained off 4 days earlier the production of a totally new programme hadn't gone unnoticed either. .

    Happy to be corrected, as I said I was very young at the time..

    Although I would have been very young at the rime I remember two more recent presenters, Simon Groom definitely being one, having a race at Halifax. IIRC one of them won, as the juniors they were against either fell or efed.
  7. Even more ironic that Ronnie is spelled T-E-R-R-Y in the particular article. Still when was accuracy a tool of the serial whingers on the BSF?

    Somerset Speedway.....

    If Metropolitan Counties count, London Lions. If riders count, Denzil Kent, Dave Durham, Leon Flint and Chris "Greater" Manchester. Don't think anyone has mentioned Arena Essex yet either. Quite an obvious one really.
  9. F^^k me. Surrey charge from £29 - £32 for the cheapest pre-booked seats at the Oval with a fiver extra to pay on the day, and better seats will cost much more. No OAP discount. As a comparison the cheapest seat for a 5 day test is £270 rising to £372 for the dearest, where the first three days are £100 each. One for the persistently moaning wrinklies on BSF to digest.
  10. A little surprised that nobody in officialdom has posted here. Following Sunday's triple-header the Kestrels cannot be caught now so become the first Kent team (as per tannoy announcements) to win a league title since 1978. Not the greatest of meetings with the main interest seemingly being to see if Alex Spooner (a class above) could beat Paul Hurry's NL track record Although going close he failed, but regularly lowered the SDL record, on his way to a 27 point maximum, from his 9 rides.. Kent beat Exeter 24 - 12, Weymouth 25-11 and Isle of Wight 28 - 8. No away riders won a heat with Exeter's Adam Sheppard's three second places being the best.

    Torquay United FC new stadium!

    Bears more than a passing resemblance to Stadium MK too. Maybe Torquay will be followng the real Wimbledon to Bucks.

    Whoa, steady on. You don't know me either yet, because I sat in the most expensive seats I must be a dishonest and unfriendly snob. You feel it not at all disgraceful to insult me and those around simply because of your irrational pseudo lower socio group persecution ideology, when it was clear to anyone with an IQ higher than an amoeba that another poster was simply having a leg pull with an associate. We were all there as speedway fans and I personally dined with 15 people from the smelly seats before the meeting, without the need to have a tetanus jab this morning, exchanging texts and Facebook messages with them before, during and after the meeting. We also stood in line with the hundreds queuing for the busses back to the park and ride and deigned to actually speak with some of them, even though we knew there was nowhere to wash our hands afterwards until the first services. Danger obviously is my middle name. No, really it is. My parents weren't very good when it came to choosing names; just ask my brother Chisel Trousers Ore. Why is it that the BSF attracts so many miserable old (FrddieEriksen)ers who always seek to find something to moan about? We had a brilliant meeting, full of action, excitement, incident, atmosphere and bon hommie, blatantly enjoyed by all there and those watching on BT Sport, yet there are always several who otherwise won't be happy.unless they can't find anything to whinge about. Fortunately you made an offer to Mr Plinge asking what you personally must be. Sadly my sarcasm juices would enter overdrive to benefit from entering such an opening, so I'll rein the irony in. . Chill out my friend and, to show that we "snobs" are decent folk and not at all unfriendly I accept, in advance your sincerest apologies, which you as.a decent human being are already composing, for insulting me and those other unknown parties around our very expensive seats. Good man. Anyhow Kent v Birmingham tonight in the Easter Trophy tonight. Hope we have loads of guests and rider replacemen to encourage erudite debate afterwards. Anyone know where the dearest seats there are? T

    Birmingham Statement

    A pathetically bland statement immediately overtaken by a reporr of last night's meetng at the top of their news thread..Hmm. Although I worked a year in Birmingham and attended every home match, and several away during that time, I am certainly not a fan but I trust that apologies are forthcoming from certain alleged Brummie fans for the abuse hurled at Jayne Moss in support of him, and the results of his actions. .Maybe I am just farting against thunder with that desire though.
  15. Another thread rapdly going off topic. The original poster feels that speedway is declining becaise he/she hasn't got a favourite rider. Unlike some of the rubbish we get, this seems to have been a considered and very scientific assessment of the curent problems. Although he presently doesn't have a club, because of his efforts last year, Jan Graversen is my current favourite. Rather than all this arguing shouldn't we all be having a favourite rider to get the sport back on track (see what I did there?). I have noticed that, since having a favourite, the sport is noticeably improving, so come on get a favourite and make the sport great again..
