Martin Vaculik starts with an assessed average of 9.00 so forget Zagar or any other big name. 

Will be an 8 when a further raft of amendments are ratified in the new year

If the new calculator with big buttons which Santa brought me is working properly, I make it to be like this-

If Sargeants average is 3.81, it leaves 7.15.

If his average is 2.56, it leaves 8.40.

This is based on Vaculik 8 and KP 6 as per Flagrag.

In the case of it being 2.56, they could bring in Hans Andersen and swap Josh Bates for Lasse Bjerre if Josh really does have to quit speedway.

If I'm wrong let me know and I'll send the calculator back!!

RobboBee Vaculik average will be 8pts and KP will be 6pts as confirmed by BSPA management team

Like the sound of this, where exactly (web site/link) has this been confirmed? Would seem to leave room (finances permitting) for another top end heat leader to give us much needed clout in heats 13 & 15.

Vaculik will be on a 9.00 as he is a GP rider. Pieszczek is a 7.00 is he not? Sarjeant should be a 3.81 surely seeing as that is his established average regardless of what he did in the Championship.

Rumours are GP riders are now 8.00s.

Why would they be 8.00? They should either be assessed at 9 (which is the proper level when compared to other riders) or be able to retain their original average because that is their average.

Assessing at 8.00 makes to sense when Morris, Thorsell and Kurtz are all over that.

And I did read that riders like Pieszczek will be a 6 not 7.

So does that mean a team can sign 1 GP rider assessed as 8, then 1 more over 8 point rider.

It's one 8 or over. Confirmed in speedway Star last week.

Ah but did it state that the team's one 8 & over rider would remain as the team's only named 8 & over rider even if his average dropped below 8 points?

Or are people jumping to conclusions?

Gone beyond daft, hasn't it?

Why can't riders just have an average based on what they did in league speedway in the season just ended. If they rode in GB league use that one. If they rode in Poland or Sweden but not UK, use their average from those leagues with an adjuster which is set by the FIM immediately after end of each season. If they rode both Poland and Sweden the higher figure applies.

Why is there this obsession with treating GP riders differently. The GP's are a different kind of speedway.
