So with 2019 signings being made already (Mountain and Dickson) it would seem Master Bates has an inkling of what the 2019 format should/will be?!

If fixed race nights are dropped and a different rule for doubling up/down is introduced then I can see both Sheffield and Leicester in the SGBP.

Good luck Stewart this will be good for both parties. Loads of experience, great manager, great trackman and will be popular with the supporters whichever league Leicester are in.

Lions and Tigers in same league then.....

Unfortunately just because they want to drop down doesn't mean they will be accepted into the Championship so I wouldn't bet on that yet.

More a case of the whole of the current Premier league will "drop down" I think. Statement from Damien Bates stressing the separation between Sheffield and Leicester, so I very much doubt that Steady would have carried on. Hopefully at last the Lions have someone with the right set of skills to steer the club. If only he could build a replacement track...

Says the club and fans need stability, riders they can relate to. Does that conflict with his (self proclaimed) Tinkerman reputation?

If they want to drop down and no team wants to step up, and I can see any wanting to, I could be one league.

I don't think that will be happening, although I wish it would so we get to see a bigger variety of teams and more fixtures. Hopefully Big Al is correct.   I suppose we will find out soon.

Stepping down, staying where we are? joining one big league?  who knows right now? whatever the outcome it does look like there will be speedway at Leicester in 2019.
Seems a good place to start, now to wait and see what develops over the winter.

If you go to a thread called The Way Ahead in the General Discussions section, there's a post titled Pathfinder Report 2018.

I've absolutely no idea where this has come from, or how genuine it is. It's been there a couple of weeks now, but still hasn't been met with any response.  So I'll stay skeptical about it's authenticity. It has the look of some kind of commissioned report with proposals for the future leagues and teams structure.

Any clues??

Interesting read. However the way it is structured does not follow a format a consultant would utilise to cover such a topic. Also it is missing basic financial (past and future) factors so most probably been written by a well meaning fan rather than somebody engaged on an officially retained basis.
