Like many I want to know the full team but I can understand the drip feed approach. Last week the announcement of Worrall resulted in a sizeable article in the local press. This week's announcements will probably do likewise and so will the remaining announcements. From the clubs point of view that is much more publicity than they would have received from announcing everyone at once.

Exactly why Matt Ford came out and said it’s stupid from a club perspective to announce like Ipswich. 

 

Belle Vue being very sensible. Just pity about a breakdown between Sparta and the club.

Depends on which way you look at it.

Ipswich riders since before christmas have been to many corporate functions and also time at local schools as well as the ties with the football club.

The promotion are getting the riders out there and getting maximum exposure from the town.

There isnt a right or wrong way in my opinion its whatever works for the club and the community

Wonder who came up with this idea to drip feed the Aces line up ?

Because its ridiculous , we all more or less know the remaining 5 riders just announce them FFS 

 

People who are on the internet trawling speedway sites 24/7 know who the line-up is.

But there are actually less-sad people out there who have a life outside of speedway, and don't spend every hour November to February trying in seek out every morsel of information in the hope of hearing some item of minutiae before someone else.

Announcing 7 riders one-by-one gives 7 separate news items in the local press, and 7 different chances to catch the eye of the casual viewer.   Heaven forbid that a non-fan just happens to see an item in a newspaper in January/February about the signing of a new speedway rider for the upcoming season and thinks "hmmmm I might go along and see what that's all about"

Great signing getting the Aussie champ and on a great low average , nearly 2 points lower than the rider he pipped to the title, plus he flies round the NSS.

Belle Vue team shaping up very nicely

Don't also forget a whole 1.21 lower than his other team mate who finished third in the series;)

It isn’t “stupid” at all! Everyone has their own way of doing things there isn’t a right or wrong way to do it. Chris Louis actually commented when he revealed the Ipswich 1-7, that although some clubs like to drip feed, he much prefers to do a full 1-7 reveal as soon as the signatures are on the contracts. That’s his prerogative and works best for HIM. 

Just because your promoter/Club prefers to drip feed, doesn’t mean the way Chris Louis prefers to do it is “stupid” 

There’s so much to be done over the winter that Louis prefers to get the team side of things out the way as soon as possible, and then concentrate on the business side of things like sponsorship etc. 

Each to their own.
