Thanks a million Eurosport for managing to get to show the speedway from heat 9 after the tennis finished and then showing us a pile of crud about what was going on later they might even have got heat 7 in. Thought they could have shown it in delayed from the start with an edited version but showing all the races. There is only a 1 hour repeat of this next Friday at 9 am. Damn the tennis. The highlight for me was to see the win by Robert Lambert.

I thought it was just me setting the sky box wrong,  so that happened to everyone else as well. Who the monkeys is interested in tennis finals anyway.

It wasn't even the tennis Final - on-court action which caused us to miss the first 8 heats it was the post-match, fairly pointless analysis and congratulations. Obviously, the producer is a tennis fan or the advertisers had been guaranteed X minutes of coverage.

Wimbledon tennis works out at around 40,000 people a day for a fortnight.I’d guess the attendances most days are around 50,000 ,but for the finals they only let in a far smaller amount, which drops the average a bit.Whereas speedway is a sport on its knees!!!!

Add the fact that it tends to get better sponsors yet people still try to slag off that and other sports like football!!!!

TOUGH to see Lambert being over-looked for a SGP wild card in 2019 even if he doesn't make it through the Challenge

I think he'd need to get pretty close in the challenge to warrant a pick. Look at the riders 9-11 in the gps- Doyle,holder,Zagar.

Lambert not yet in thst category imo - he's a world's top 30 rider for sure, but arguably not top 15.

Of course being a brit will help, wheras Drabik has almost no chance of a wild card.

But hope Lambert can do well in the challenge, and either qualify or do enough for a wild card.
