Kings Lynn 2018..

Recommended Posts

Has Buster stated anywhere that the once very good Kings Lynn track will be back to its original high standards for the 2018 season?

If he hasn't and he expects a return of a lot of fans to the AFA, he needs to make it his Number One priority. The quality of racing , which is the Big Pull for many supporters has been dire at times. Yes we are waiting for the Team Announcements and this "undreamt of "marketing and presentation era but that matters little if the track is the same old , same old. Buster has spent countless hours on an effort to make a silk purse of a track out of pig's ear, so fingers crossed for 2018.

Racing was good 2nd half of the season. 

 

Would that have anything to do with riders prepared to attack the track rather than whinging?

just asking

Yeah! Hungry riders with something to prove. There was fresh shale that hadn't bedded for that poole meeting what was said to have caused the problems. maybe that just settled and helped too! but anybody with something to prove will try harder. so it was probably a mix of both!

Dosent make sense not preparing a track for good racing, your business depends on it. Kings Lynn was always one of the very best race tracks in the country, hope its back to its best next season.

Kings Lynn has been pants for a few years now, i can't see it ever improving without taking in the corners...

Thing also to remember the stadiums main business is Stock Cars not speedway - it’s a stock car stadium that happen to run speedway as well , I’ve several stock car friends and they all say about Lynn what we used to say about speedway best track in the country .

 I've always believed the surface was the biggest problem.   if the surface was right then the corners are racable, with lines inside and out.    Over the years we have seen some wonderful racing proving the shape is not that far off.

So the last few posts just completely ignoring the fact the racing had improved no end after the new shale/riders came and the 2nd half of the season was good racing. 

 

Sorry that doesn't fit the negative theme! . . . . at least the results were rubbish though ;)

Absolutely no surprise that a change of dirt resulted in better racing. Along with the two bad attitudes being removed from the team.

The heavy, stock car friendly shale has resulted in poor racing for a few years now. No outside line, the following riders being slowed down by the heavy spray from the leaders back wheel. Hopefully the penny has dropped.

I don't really get this taking in the corners bit.Been done at Lynn before,nothing changed.At various tracks we get good racing,Peterborough,Belle Vue,Wolves,Scunthorpe different size tracks they are and all produce good racing on their day.So i really don't think size or shape matters(keep telling the missus that to:rolleyes:).To me it is the material used and the application of the riders that makes the difference.As Danny Connor said the racing certainly improved when different riders and material was used half way through last season.
