    Keith Miller of Ecco perhaps.

    Newcastle 2020

    He's never team managed at this level, so only time will tell, if he can be successful. All I can say is, he will enthusiastically, give it his all.

    Newcastle 2020

    Correct.

    If Jason is not a success, it won't be due to a lack of effort.

    Leicester Lions 2020

    I believe he is advising, Rob Grant, at Newcastle. Might be wrong though.

    Poole Pirates 2020

    That he would be eligible, for a visa to ride in the championship, is not in doubt. He needs a team in the championship, (with a sponsors licence), to apply for a visa to ride in the championship. His Belle Vue visa won't cover him for the championship. By the way, you do not get these visa's overnight, they take some time, to be approved.

    Poole Pirates 2020

    He would need a visa for the championship, aswell as a visa for the prem. One visa doesn't cover it.

    Poole didn't discover them, certainly not Chris Holder.

    Also Gary Allan ( New Zealand I know) Mark Lemon.

    You could probably ask, all the teams he has ridden for and you might get a clue.

    Sorry to say it, but I bet none of those tracks, were anything like Brough Park. I think big culture shock coming, for Mr Skorja.

    Redcar 2020

    Homer may not have been "bricking it", but I bloody was. Until Stewart, produced that ride in ht14. LOL.

    Redcar 2020

    Absolutely correct. The heat leaders, are top notch, but I fancy Jordan Stewart, to go to a whole new level, this season. Kasper is capable, of beating a lot of heat leaders, (especially around the MPA). The reserves are both racers and if they give, a decent account of themselves, that side will go a long way.

    Glasgow 2020

    Yes they do own the stadium, they lease the land its built on.

    Newcastle 2020

    Think they might be, come the night of 14th Dec

    Glasgow 2020

    Add Redcar, to that list.

    Newcastle 2020

    Sadly, double down Aussies, not allowed to appear for a club, which is not a sponsors licence holder. Another work permit required, to appear in the championship.

    Sadly, I think it is a misconception, that Ulrich has poor machinery. I believe, it is the engine set up, that he wants, which is the problem. What suits other riders, will not suit Ulrich and vice versa. When Ulrich came to Redcar, some years ago, He changed from Jawas to GMs. The new engines went to Sean Wilson for tuning, Sean did his stuff, but they did not suit Ulrich. After several attempts, Sean had to say that's the best I can do, (no one was blaming Sean by the way) and I am sure the end product, would have suited most riders. Just not the individual requirements of Ulrich. The engines, then went to Ash - Tech in Poland (that definitely would not come cheap) and I think he was happier with the results. I believe he still has his engines done by Ash - Tech. Ulrich would seem to be a constant work in progress, (machinery wise) and hopefully they get it right. Its not for lack of effort or expenditure. When Ulrichs bikes are going well, he is great entertainment

    Kent Kings 2020?

    Time will tell with that one. Hey its your opinion, just like its mine and I wouldn't be that confident in heats 13 and 15 against some of the riders the Kings are going to come up against. If you have a powerful 1 to 5, (which I don't believe) you would expect to make the top 6.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    I'm sorry, but I am just not impressed with this top 5. I think they would have to perform, out of their skin, to make the play offs. No big hitter in there, (Scotty Nicholls well on the downslide), pretty ordinary for me. Just my opinion though.

    Newcastle 2020

    I think you are missing the point, that Steve Park, (and THJ), is making. Newcastle, do not have a sponsors licence, so he could not get a work permit and visa. A sponsors licence is also not picked up quickly.

    Redcar 2020

    I am sure, the Redcar promotion, would love to use Jacob, at reserve. Unfortunately, it does not tally, with their strategy, of having a strong top 5. Being able to track a 4 point reserve is a luxury, they can't afford. Jacob is a lovely lad, an enthusiastic racer, who deserves some success, but he is on an assessed 4 point average, (it can't be lower) which he still has not achieved. I have no doubt he will improve and probably go over 4 points, but at this time, I don't think it will be with Redcar. He is a trier and entertaining and who knows, down the stretch of the season, Redcar may be able to accommodate him, if he is available.

    Birmingham Brummies 2020

    I don't believe it has anything to do with his average. His visa (last year), allowed him only to ride in the Premier league. He would need to re- apply, for a visa to ride in the championship and another to ride in the Premier.

    Redcar 2020

    That is fantastic news. This should be the start for another fantastic team.
