Unfortunately it's an ambiguous rule that will be applied to suit as per usual.

They should just include the word 'current' to the rule...

why not make it 8 for GP riders. as with the one over 8 rule you could only have 1 of them anyway if you wanted.

Is the rule 1 over 8 or 1 8 or over?

The 2017 riders not in the 2018 series are not current, they are 'has beens' :wink:

Chris Holder never finished the season so his average is just based on pretty much half a season.

 

He should be a 9 along with all the other GP riders

Fair point!

However surely "GP standard as fits those riders who rode in the current season and next season qualification already assured (excludes those who rode as a wildcard, reserves Numbers 17 and 18 and having ridden 2 or less rounds)" is about as transparent as you can get ???

I am led to believe this rule covers riders who rode in zero meetings during 2017 and in GP.

I see it as a cost cutting exercise ensuring that none of those riders could be signed even if they wanted to. The fact that some clubs aren't keen to sign the TV deal speaks volumes about how much money they expect to lose out on. Certainly not enough for the top boys.

 

 

Should that not be a choice for each club to make if a few clubs want to sign a top heavy team with two 8/9 point riders and can afford to do so.As long as the team is within the points limit what's the problem.

Even the clubs fans that choose not to sign the top stars will get to see a few GP riders when these top heavy teams visit their club.

No, there just wasn't enough space on the beermat they were writing on, when the rule was written down, to include the word "current".

Ha ha. If that's true he's mugged them off good and proper if he signs Holder.

 

A very low points limit last year plus a change in race formula.

He's been mugging speedway promoters for years that's why Frost and Sandu made a stance in 2011

Certain members of the BSPA don't do compromise.

 

Ford the instigator of last season's gp riders being given 9 point averages according to CVS.

 

Looks like it was directly aimed at wolves and belle Vue - pawlicki, woffy, Zafar all on sub 8 average or would have been...

 

Surprise, surprise.

So once again, Ford engineering things for his benefit.

 

The cancer returns.

Sorry? What are you on about? Making sweeping statements about someone over hearsay? Edited by Steve Shovlar
