    Echo those thoughts THJ. Late 70s, early 80s, Brough was a quality venue, from a spectator viewpoint. Good for food and drink as you have said and very comfortable for viewing. Now, a lack of investment is showing. When I was there for the KO Cup Final, it looked rough around the edges and a bit worn and second hand to be honest. Nothing like in its halcyon days. So sad.

    I appreciate all of your points THJ, but I believe the Polish speedway authorities, have already decreed, that if you ride in Poland, then you live in Poland, for the season. By that they mean, no flitting about from country to country. They have also reduced the pay rates by 50% I believe, its kind of a take it or leave it situation. I think a lot of riders will take it. I can't see any British speedway taking place, on the basis, that I cannot see the government, allowing spectators into stadia, before the end of October, (just my personal opinion). So it might be a mute point that riders go to Poland, because I don't think they are going to miss much speedway here. God I hope I am wrong.

    He would be very sadly missed, but you can understand it. He isn't going to earn very much from speedway, this season.

    Agree, don't think we will see any, (not in this country anyway). Thank god for the re- run service.

    That seems to be the cruxt of the matter. If you ride in Poland, you live in Poland, no freedom of movement and toing and froing, from country to country. (Quite how that works if the GPs start up, I don't know).

    Sadly, I think it is option 3, which fits the bill.

    Does anybody have the Facebook link.
  11. Many thanks to Tapes Up, for providing this and many thanks to Neil Watson and Aceslider, for posting it on here. It is much appreciated, at this time.

    I very much agree. I am a season ticket holder and when eventually, proceedings get underway, (that may not even be this season), then I will get full value for the monies, that I have outlaid, from this promotion. They are very approachable and the customer always comes first.

    Yes I believe that is correct. I don't think Birmingham, have a sponsors licence, to enable them to obtain visa's and work permits.

    Seemingly, you don't know how this works. Somerset (who are holders of a sponsors licence) must have agreed terms, with Luke Becker and now applied for and received a work permit for him to ride in the championship. He needs a separate work permit, for each league (Premier and Championship), which well done Somerset, they have secured.
