Sad to hear about Coventry Speedway and send my condolences to everyone who kept the club going and the fans.

 

I am amazed Mick Horton spent over £200,000 to Avatar Sandhurst but nothing to show for it which is also saddening.

 

I have also noticed hardly no-one has mentioned the Coventry riders which is disappointing in my view.

 

These are the men who everyone pay to see and put the entertainment on show and now what do they do and where do they go?

 

Will they be able to get clubs especially the British riders?

 

Looking for positives it's small consolation that the fans have Leicester and Wolverhampton tracks in a reasonably close vicinity and the new rules have given most the riders at least something in the Premier League such as Garrity and Bates.

Like others I'd seriously consider buying shares in the stadium* if it was the route that has to be gone down. But I don't think the issue at the moment is finances.

 

*Not the speedway club!

The NSSC meeting on Thursday will clarify what the plan is hopefully.

 

Will the wonderful mr sandhu be coming to this meeting because he was the one who promised the bees fans he wouldn't let them down, time for him to meet the fans again.

 

Good luck and hope the bees return next year.

I very much doubt it. Sandhu and Heaver have had plenty of chances to meet fans at Save Cov Speedway meetings but always declined an invite.

We just need to find around 2,000 people who will put up £1,000 ( or other multiples of people and pounds ) I am willing to put up £1,000 providing it is returned if sufficient support to buy or part buy Brandon is not found. I am a fan of speedway and not a Bees supporter so there may be enough fans who will do the same? Can we get the Speedway Star to publicise such a scheme? I am willing to play an organisational part in this project but definitely cannot do that all myself. Anyone else feel the same?

 

You can at least double that amount required if not triple it! It would be much more financially viable to start again in a different location.

Joe Beavers is this supposed to make us happen to make us happy bunnies Leicester and Wolverhampton close by via very busy motorways average 60 mile round trip, count me out my Speedwaylive viewing is finished after over 60 years supporting Brandon. Whilst I agree with you about the riders there has been quite a large posts about these riders and how dreadful it is for them so close to start of the season.

I completely understand, it's not the same without your own team. When Wolves were closed in 82/83, I had Birmingham (with ex Wolf Hans Nielsen) and Cradley on my doorstep, 15 and 10 miles respectively. I went to 1 meeting in 2 years.

While true Brandon is the Bees fans home.

If by some miracle £4m could be raised most would prefer that spent on the existing site than a new venture

not defending either of them, but with the vitriol flying around who on earth would? no one knows what really happened, but the only thing i know is that we need the stox to keep going. If that means whoever runs the bees has to deal with them so be it. Without the STOX management we are dead in the water!

 

we may be at that point already but why try and p**s off the only hope the club has?

Sorry if this has already been mentioned.

I don't anything about this but has anyone looked into crowd funding? It seems to help all sorts of projects with a variety of people willing to chip in to reach a target sum. With the stocks and dogs also homeless, and many fans for those sports worldwide, as well as speedway, (not forgetting the history of the place), maybe this could be a solution?
