That's the thing about a job, you have to work alongside colleagues you don't like but for the business you do the best you can.

For the Stars, Garrity is as good as any as a replacement for Kerr.

Bite the bullet and get on with it for the sake of the team. Nobody has had any issues with Jason at Scunthorpe and Belle Vue. In fact his character has had the opposite effect with what most fans and rider's comments about him. He may have turned a corner with his personality and become more grounded.

I hope the promotion can see past the fact they may not like someone. It's their job to do what's best for the club and that's employing the best for the job.

Garrity fits the bill

I quite agree. On track, he may well do the business and I would like to believe that the promotion can do as you suggest. I can't think of anyone else scoring more points who they could come up with. I am just commenting on how it has been in the past, which is a well-known story. It would be great for Garrity if he has "turned a corner" and matured. That would make him a formidable rider.

I think its inaccurate and rather defeatist to say 'whats the point' if the club struggles to replace Lewis. We stand a better chance of success with a new signing but R/R and guests could work if everybody else pulls their weight. As always with new signings it depends on who is available, if they want to come and how much points money is in the kitty.

R/R  is a facility to be used by a team occasionally as a last resort.  not used as a permanent replacement.   With 3 meetings to run in July it would be silly  to use R/R.     It does nobody any favours.     It prolongs the meeting when allowing a rider extra time between races,    it  puts extra pressure on riders doing extra rides,    if another rider in the team has a fall , then the team are up the creek without a paddle.   At a time when the sport needs every help it can get,   what you don't want is fans waiting around doing the extended breaks  and the same riders in many races.

R/R is a major put-off.

Best options to replace Kerr i'd say are: Edward Kennett Claus Vissing, Ulrich Ostergaard or Jason Garrity.

Ulrich? May as well just call them Panthers.

Looking at the numbers, with Stevie Worrall returning to the Aces line-up I wonder if the Stars management are looking to pick up Jason Garrity.

Auty for me is a better rider more reliable rides his balls off every race  he certainly is better than Garrity in the Champs this year. Garrity is good but if you have Six meetings in a month can you rely on Garrity to ride in all of them NO is the answer.

I'm sure it wouldn't be a  permanent thing but you're right, R/R is undesirable for several reasons. Ostergaard and Garrity have been mentioned and I think I'd take either of those.

Nothing wrong with R/R. Didn’t White City win the League back in the day whilst running R/R all season. Can’t remember the missing riders name but I seem to recall he didn’t make one appearance for them.

That’s the chappie. Think he was 2nd behind Gordon Kennett in the teams averages.

With three home fixtures coming up within a week at the AFA, is there any discount scheme planned to entice supporters to all three? Or are we supposed to have saved up the money while there were no fixtures arranged?
