Hopefully the British boys will be there as well

.

Who'll be the British boys this season ? - and is there any change by the ACU as to nominating for the WMs ?

I was speaking to Roger Newton at Buxton before the end of the speedway season. Provisionally he intends to go to practice in Sweden, however this all depends on some family matters, which could change his plans.

 

I believe Rob Irvine will be riding again, although I haven't spoken to him for a while. He rode in Switzerland and at Heerenveen last season.

 

As for anyone else, its a case of wait and see. If a couple of the ex-motocross lads who have dabbled in speedway had a go, I think they may do well, as many of the Russians are motocrossers during the summer. It would be interesting to see them have a crack on the ice. I did jokingly say to Aiden Collins he should have a go on the Ice. He'd love to have a try, but the cost puts him, and I suspect a lot of potential riders, off.

 

As for your other question, I don't have any information about that.

We have snow expected everywhere in the next few days,even in the low areas.In the mountains we have had snow for a few weeks,but it is expected to be good for winter sports at the weekend

 

Just seen that Tobi Busch is off to Russia,so he must have a 'safe' destination to train or he is going to be driving all that way for nothing

Vyatskiye Polyany :P

Thanks. Nice little town out there... and the probable host of the EC final in Feb.

 

Here are Swedish Isracingserien dates https://ta.svemo.se/Public/Pages/Serie/Audience/AudienceStatistics.aspx?SerieId=1058 . My guess is that the meeting scheduled for 27th of July is actually January of that same year. If I'm correct, then sportowefakty has/had it wrong.

 

EDIT: the swedish sr is online at fimlive

Just seen that Luca Bauer is going to be riding with an Italian licence this season!!! Trouble with the German federation.Just like his father then? :P

Seems the trouble stems from last year when he wasn't nominated for the EM after being the only german rider to compete the year before.

 

The german nominations for the word championship quails are

Ylitornio

Niedermaier,Busch and Pletschacher

 

Örnsköldsvik

G.Bauer and Hans Weber

Rumour has it that Tani is out for the season after a crash in practise.  Not good, hoped he could have a strong season and pick up some drive.
