  1. Absolutely brilliant effort by the campaign group. A real professional report that hits home the key points. Well done and thank you to everyone involved. Fingers, toes, legs and arms crossed for a successful outcome.

    Boom. With a great post like this I hope it's not your last. Just reload and fire again at the next moron. Keep up the good work Jeff and your fellow team, the real fans are right behind you!

    Horton said on CWR he made a "heat of the moment" comment regarding selling the club. Now he wants to stay involved. Seems the issues with the stadium owners maybe resolvable by working together. Same "working together" ref to the save Coventry speedway group. Am I the only one who reads this as a hope for speedway coming back next season?
  5. Nice idea for the fans to support the riders outlay in the short term. At the end of the day we have to choice to contribute or not. What I don't understand is why the riders cant sue the promotion (or BSPA?), for loss of earnings?

    I guess it's still not 100% ? Very delicate negotiations ongoing but some light peering through. I'm sure they said Horton is on the radio tomorrow? Can't be sure I was driving. Maybe all will be revealed?

    BBCs local Speedway bod, Wayne Roberts, was on tonight. Seems the BSPA are giving it additional time to get sorted. Leicester is the fall back position for the season (at worse) or short term if a Brandon deal is not done in time. He said there's light at the end of the tunnel? With Bees season not starting at home until April the BSPA are trying to accommodate the team getting back on track ar Brandon. If this does get sorted we've got Percy Verence to thank, top guy.

    So we've now got until tomorrow according to Chapman. At least that gives hope a solution is being worked. For me the Bees need to come to tapes at Brandon. Any other option will see me stay away. Same as when the sky blues went to Northampton for a season. fingers, toes, arms and legs crossed.

    Local BBC radio correspondent (Wayne Roberts) was on the breakfast show today and says Horton has new backers. Wayne is a good guy, very knowledgeable about the Bees goings on so hopefully this is a positive sign.

    Oh dear. Telegraph has a statement from Brandon Estates saying Horton not taken up the lease and the opportunity gone. Were getting mixed messages almost daily! I get the feeling Horton is Chemical Ali in Bagdad claiming his side is winning while the American tanks roll past (or Brandon estates bulldozers) Will Sandhu suddenly return the fixtures/fittings and lease the stadium off Brandon Estates for Stock Cars?

    Buster Chapman was on local radio tonight. Says the BSPA are optimistic of the Bees racing this year. Small steps but progress being made. They have until Friday to confirm.

    Oh lord, here we go again. .... No news is good news! The stadium is in transition from current owners to new, hence nothing is being done to it until the keys are given to Horton in Jan. The Bees website posted the comments at the time, nothing more needs to be said. We've named our team. Stop being so pessimistic.

    Naughty words, yet strangely Neil Watson liked it?

    Can you be prosecuted for vandalising your own property?

    All this chat and rumors. So some works going on at the stadium, could be for many reasons but most obviously part of the handover to the new owners. Id be worried if it was mid March, it's bloody November! We're announcing signings, unlike Belle Vue and Leicester who we know are in trouble. Wouldn't be doing that if we didn't have a stadium to ride at. Come on people, chill out a bit. It's Speedway, run by idiots, riden by nutters and watched by pessimists.
