Coventry Bees Nl ?

I'm beginning to wonder if this decision was made based on the turnout for the Leicester v Bees challenge match in September last year.

I will remain pessimistic I'm afraid, cannot see it lasting at all. Especially with the rumoured news of the arson attacks on Brandon stadium

blimey that must have been some fire if the arson attack at Brandon,  is going to affect the operation at Leicester

any reason ,based on actual fact , for this assumption ?  you don't have to be a promoter to sell the assets of a club that you own , there have been more than a few clubs who have closed over the years and their former promoters have sold  the clubs assets  .

 It was on a podcast a while back that whilst his promoters license was frozen all of any income from loan fees were held by the BSPA.

then released if the bees return to the track.

you could be right that he could sell at anytime but I was assuming that if loan fees were held so would transfer income.

Cue a fire sale of all of the bees assets now ?

Before the plug is pulled at Leicester ,surely not.

 

Maybe but the bspa would've got the assets anyway!

Mick Horton made a Podcast ? or did the BSPA make this podcast ?  perhaps it was someone else with their own agenda  who made it ,  there's no shortage of them , you only need to read this thread to see some ..

7 former storm riders ,who haven't been seen on social media bleating about not having a team place ,  and who you would expect to see snapped up ,if they were actually available

Riders do sometimes whinge about being owed money and I know it happens but even the rabble in BSPA HQ wouldn't let a promoter open at a new track without paying their debts off surely - maybe the debts are disputed.

I think this is great news, another team to join speedway at any level is good.  Although Cradley are not fully participating this year they have shown that operating at other tracks can work.  Many people always seem to be so pessimistic/negative, but I think that's a British trait.

"Notable" riders without a released team place include Dwyer, Halder, Greenwood, Halsey, Armstrong, Hunter, Bowtell, Knight, Wilson & Harris although not sure any combination would keep pace with the teams already announced.

The return of Chris Harris would be interesting indeed, and may actually be the only thing that would tempt a Coventry fan over to Leicester. Maybe the BSPA would consider engineering an assessed 6.00 average for Bomber, like they did for Richard Hall...all in the best interests of British Speedway.

Trevor Heath? In fairness his replacement only lasted a little bit longer and was then replaced with a Mr James Shanes.......
