  1. I fancy Lakeside, very strongly, but more so if Newman is riding. If he is not riding, then it is neck and neck with Pbro. It seems though, that every team, that is showing as a favourite, is then suffering a key injury, (Sheffield and Scunthorpe). I hope for every team, there are on further cases. Indeed, I hope Charles Wright and Jason Garrity recover to take part. Depending on which Glasgow team turn up, they could also, win this. Should be an entertaining event though.
  2. Has Danny King, had a relapse with his injuries, or just unavailable. It makes a difference, to Ippo's chances though.
  3. I think this will be a very tight meeting, with quite a few potential winners. Favourites, I would make that, Sheffield and Lakeside. After that I would go for, Peterboro, Scunthorpe, Glasgow and Ipswich. I think Edinburgh and Worky could be spoilers and if anyone slips up, could create a shock. That leaves the local teams, Redcar Newcastle and Berwick to make up the numbers. Up at the top end though, its a wide open meeting, for anyone who wants to grab it. The racing should be terrifically close and very exciting. Just noticed Ricky Wells not riding. Scrub the Monarchs chances.

    Redcar v Peterborough Thursday

    I believe the Gladders brothers, put the boot in on that one. They are bigger shareholders. Some perceived slight from years ago responsible and the reason for it. Havelock wanted Ged on board.

    Think with laydown engines, riding styles, have altered since then. Point taken though, Penhall, Gundersen, they all used to do it.

    His problem seems to be, he steps the back end of the bike out a little too far, throws a mini locker, which scrubs his speed off, coming out of the corner. Small margins, can make a big difference.

    Can't see anything other than a Pbro victory, could even be a 4 pointer. All the bottom 3 have had good meetings at Redcar, even Bacon.

    No to Hansen and Bellego, I doubt would fit, plus he rides some Thursday's with Swindon. The guy they should go for, is the young dane, Freddie Jacobson, but I doubt they could afford him.

    I don't think people, are misunderstanding, what you were saying. I think you are backtracking and changing your tune.

    I would settle, for getting our points at home. Tomorrow night, will be a big test of that. Lawson, Morris, Morley and Newman, all have great experience of Redcar and I don't expect Ellis and Wajnachkt to take long to get the hang of the place. It will be a close one.

    Workington team changes

    He can sign for another team, if that team, holds a sponsors licence.
  13. To be fair, Redcar are not going to win anything this season. They will not qualify for the play offs, but if we can win a few matches and gain some experience and improve down the stretch, then we will have to settle for that. Its a team with the future in mind, but not all the personnel will survive, ultimately. Ben Barker, looks to be trying his guts out, but he is under a lot of pressure and is missing a few starts. Hopefully that will come good.
  14. All of what you say , is true. Without Sheffields fallers, we would have been nowhere near 39 points. James Shanes, to my knowledge,has never been to Redcar before. Yet like most riders, he found it very much, to his liking and this applies to Todd Kurtz aswell, (I don't know anywhere he goes better). Its also a points return, from r/r, that would have been expected, had Josh Bates been riding. Friday is our off night and the result is that the atmosphere, always seems a bit flat. I did not meet anyone, who fancied Redcar to win. This is a development season for Redcar, hopefully in the future, much tougher contests will ensue
