See Steve Lawson has also had some input on the design along with Greg Hancock another positive move by the promotion.

 

I am sure the usual suspects will find a negative though it is a given.

there will always be a fastest way around any track . 

the inside or the outside .

not many tracks have those many lines , its like formula 1 , as long as you stick to that certain line , you have won .

good luck in finding that magical route around your track , 

best track that i have seen with many lines was the old Hyde road . superb racing there . .

you can tell the N.S.S. was built with the old Hyde road in mind  . 

you have 2 good guys trying to find that special something in your track , lets hope they can find it .

Since our team is complete, we are into the new year and the new track is taking shape - what are the thoughts on the riding order for the mighty Tigers?!

My original thoughts were something along the lines of:-

1. Worrall

2. Starke

3. Vissing

4. Kerr

5. Harris

6. Sargeant

7. JPB

But with such a strong middle order, do you swap round Starke and Kerr? Or does Claus start at 2? Tough, yet probably welcomed decisions ahead for both home and away! :)

Vissing to selfish a rider to back up Worral, he would probably take out his team mate just to win, just as a did on Kus at Berwick

Oh dear a simple suggestion on the team front and it descends into the slating off a rider.

 

But back on topic i would have Kerr at 2 and vissing at 3 at home with Vissing at 4 away.

With very little between the middle order i guess it won't make a great deal of difference.

I guess we can only wait and see who hits the 'track' running for the third heat leader role @ no.3. And yeah, I did think of Kerr at no. 2.

But alot of scope for the middle order to increase their averages significantly.

It's not really slating Claus , it's just pointing out the type of rider he is . Not all can be the consummate team man on track . I remember going to Stoke during Claus' first season in this country and David McAllan got Claused a couple of times . James Grieves had a spat with him at Ashfield one day and called him just a typical Dane when interviewed post meeting . Well I suppose they all learn at the feet of the master in Denmark . 

But on a 6.8 average there's no doubt he can be trump card if he gets his act together .

Definitely a typical Dane, you only have to look at Nicki, Hans and especially Usterguaard!!(sp??) Trouble with Vissing, he also goes "Missing" too:wink:

Add Kildemand to that list too , they certainly produce a certain type of rider in Denmark . Yes Claus has that going missing trait , but he has proved in the past , particularly at Edinburgh , that in the right environment he can consistently produce the goods . Whether that will be the case at Glasgow remains to be seen , but I sincerely hope so .

sad to read on the Glasgow site that jJmmy Beaton has passed on . any loss in the speedway world is a great loss to all .  but i think jimmy will be a greater loss to those who had known him . 91 yrs old , it must be the irn bru !        R.I.P. .  J .B.

Looking at the pictures of how much the track is being taken in on Twitter, are Ashfield Juniors moving out?
