But what happens if a British rider is above that average and wants to race in the championship??? 

The same as has always happened until last season. He can't.

So why will Scott and Eddie be allowed to this year? That's if the rule is changed, which it probably will be.

So they may change a rule this year and not next???  

Maybe Walt Disney is running the show, as it's very mickey mouse.

I think generally it's a good thing that these two riders look like they'll be able to ride in the second division after all, as it makes the league more competitive and gives two Brits more racing. However to stop a team (Lakeside) from signing them back in November and then effectively putting them back on the market three months later is really poor.

Why can't speedway get its house in order as soon as the season finishes so everybody knows exactly where they stand? It always seemed daft to exclude Nicholls and Kennett from doubling up while still allowing Morris, Harris, Cook etc to do so if they wish. Once again something not thought through at all.

Don't think lakeside too bothered, they signed Morris , Lawson and  Newman in one fell swoop , knowing the 6pt rule before some other promoters found out.

Just think that the best riders should stick to Div 1 and let the rest earn the money that is on offer in Div 2. Or perhaps all riders should be given a choice of which league want to ride in.

There isn't enough meetings in England for a lot of riders if they only ride in 1 league.

Yeah and the irony in signing in a PL number 1 when they weren't allowed to sign lower standard riders initially.

The official site continues to be bang up to date , packed with every bit of the very latest news.

Try looking at the BSPA website , they are even worse and according to there info section we are still on 2017 rules . They make changes to rules but how is anyone supposed to know what has been altered when they can't even get a basic thing like updating  correct, is it any wonder the sport is in such a mess.

If they allow SN & EK and anyone else in a similar position to ride in both leagues it is the right thing to do because other 9 riders have been allowed to do so. It is too late now to bar them all because it would cause too much disruption with the new season fast approaching. Next season however, current BPL averages should decide and not most recent BCL averages.
