And that would shut the place!!

 

With serious injuries that could have been prevented HSE would be looking at a broad and detailed investigation. I think shutting would be a lesser worry for those involved.

I think you're right.

 

Lights going out in the middle of a race causing a fatality or serious injury with evidence that similar failures have happened in the past would be extremely serious.

I don't know what the promotion think they are saving by using an inadequate generator?

We used to have lights that were ok back in the day but never this dangerous.

 

As I say one bad crash when the lights suddenly go out and that would be that.

 

If the place has to run on a shoestring budget then as previous comments, a life is more important, so shut the place!

Surely they can run on Sunday afternoons, if the lights are an issue? Stoke has great potential, a shame to see it lingering on in this way.

Don't think it's just the floodlights.

 

When the generator trips out, the airfence also seems to deflate, and presumably the referee loses the control panel too and couldn't activate the red lights in the event of a crash?

Does it ever break down during Stock Car events?

 

Or do they not run under lights? Or need warning lights activated?...

 

Some very big crowds at these events so wouldn't want to annoy so many people time and again....

I hope Joe has a sponsor for thermal long johns as he'll be involved in a double header on October 31 as Stoke try and finish their hectic 10 home matches in 7 months schedule.

If a fatality occurred, God forbid, it would be classed as corporate manslaughter. What does it take for this promotion to wake up and face reality. Surely not a fatality.

with| Leicester vacating Saturdays, Stoke becomes an even more likely venue for us on our weekend footy/speedway doubles. I sincerely hope they can run more regularly to avoid ridiculous end of season off night stagings and/or daft start times to get in double headers that short change the public. This promotion frustrates the hell out of me and has done for more years than i can remember... the track could be one of the best around....if only...
