Up to our ears in c**p with builders making our lives "fun" at the moment.

Very sorry not to there to support our friends tonight. Given that we are in Rugby, it's nuts that we will be at the next round at Somerset (certain).

Can someone post the results from Leicester please? We would like to know the whole line up if possible please. We do care, and would love have been there tonight.

Forwarded message. An update on the results shown in the previous Post:

 


A great evening's entertainment took place at Leicester Speedway on Saturday night with the first round of the reinvented British Sidecar Speedway Championships. The racing got better as the night wore on and the winner-take-all final was one of the best sidecar speedway races seen for many years on these shores. Full results here...

There was also demonstration races by Josh Goodwin/Liam Brown, Aaron/Stephen Vale and Richard Jenner/Roddy Stirling. They put on a good advert for next weekend's European Sidecar Semi Final. Josh/Liam won 3 out of the 4 heats, with the Vales winning the opener.

The next championship round is scheduled for Kings Lynn on Friday 14th July 2017.

You could make decent trip out of going to this one by arriving a day early (like me and the missus) and seeing King's Lynn beat Poole

Well I got that wrong. Let's hope tonight the riders actually want to ride.
