OK fair play, I didn't realise that. What a ridiculous situation!!

Yes but promotors such as Matt Ford knew season start he had no DK clashes as he didnt use Andersen or Klindt.

KL used NKI and Lambert surely knowing they could lose for some matches if and when meeting clashed (dont forget DK is a smaller league though and they start later). If Chapman has decided to  race Wed and also accepted other clubs fixture lists then he must have approved the possibility of losing some of his riders in such situations.

As for Klindt at Poole then either there is a min fixture clash as he is resigned to start in under 2 weeks or he has agreed with his DK club to give up in favour of Poole as he is based in UK with his family - doesnt have all the commuting costs and gets more meetings in UK which must give him more than his DK earnings ??

From his four meetings to date for Workington this year, he has totalled 13 points which surely can't rival his Danish earnings?

Well, did he know or didn't he? If Buster did know about the clashes for his Danish riders AND Lambert and still went ahead with the signings then he is the fool that his critics claim him to be. If he didn't know, why not? Speedway is such a masonic secret society ( except at the IOW of course ) that we will never know.

Had the pleasure in watching Lakeside Hammer his club last night and he was dire to put it mildly. How this guy can ride a max in POL on Sunday and ride as he did last night is crazy.

However the point is my comments are in ref to what he will  earn at Poole (probably) compared to DK as he wont have all the commuting costs. Remember it was his poor Champ form that got him into Poole last season anyway on what many deemed a bargain av on the points conversion av Champ to Prem.

Bottom line was he couldnt ride the track. Think he will do better at Poole. If not then Poole really do have a problem.

The chances are good that he will ride.  The fact he raced yesterday is a good sign.  The only problem could be if there was any repercussion from that shoulder operation, and he wont know that until after.     If he pulls out of the Poole match through injury,   didn't I read somewhere, he would then have to be absent for 7 days, ( meaning he misses the Rye House match on Monday... )

Cant wait to get back to a FULL TEAM  so we can compete on equal terms........

Congratulation to Robert on a wonderful victory last night becoming the new British Champion.  so remmonissant of that night in Coventry  back in 1978 when Michael  Lee won  that same coveted crown.   Never thought that night could ever be over shadowed, but last night came really close.    Robert was superb and demonstrated his ability by winning each and every race.  From the gate, or from the back it made no difference. he really was majestic.....

Well done that man........    BRITISH CHAMPION  2018 :   Robert  Lambert......:cheers:

From the moment Robert made his National League debut around Saddlebow Road he seemed destined for this. He was, as Webby says, majestic, seeing off the young guns of his own generation and going head to head in superb battling style with the British "veteran" riders. Thank you BT for a stunning broadcast which allowed me to almost "be there" ( as I can no longer attend in person ). That man Bewley is going to share the future with Robert and they will likely form the spearhead of the GB Speedway Team - how lucky we are to look forward to that exciting prospect. With Garrity, Cook and Woffinden WOW!

We should savour these days in the same way we did when we had Nicki. They may not last for ever and he may regrettably move on but in years to come we will look back with a buzz. Have to be proud of the lad. To think there were people saying he would have to leave lynn to progress!!!! Funny. This guy has it!

I think British Speedway got it right! Only Swindon would have to move from a Thursday (if they were forced too), but Poole, King's Lynn, Redcar, Sheffield & Ipswich would be have to move their race nights if Prem was Mon & Thurs! I think putting 5 British teams above a handful of Danish riders is the right thing to do for British Speedway!

Lynn used Thursdays last year so no problem for us ........ but Buster owns the stadium so it’s a different situation.

Buster harangued the other promoters for many years before they gave him The Power as BSPA Chairman. They did it then because they already knew that UK speedway was very likely going down the pan and believed that a radical approach  might just save the sport, But Dictators have a strange way of destroying everything around them because of their inability to listen or draw on other competent people ( other than Yes Men or Women ). No - one is always right as we have seen by the decline in UK speedway since Buster took over as our Glorious Leader. It certainly is not all his fault, but his "way" has speeded up the crumbling process. Too many dead ends and poorly thought through ideas.

Take next Monday, only the Return of the Hero might bring in a decent crowd when it's on against an England match in the football World Cup.
