Just watched it...

Shame he cannot lead the Sport forwards in this country...

Ticks a lot of boxes from the marketing side in trying to attract a younger audience..

Confident, positive, an engaging personality, ambitious and tattoos...!!

What's not to like?

Came across very well...

 

Yeah that 'marketing to attract a younger audience' should see loads of new young 'fans' at tracks waiting to see him race!!  Shame he didn't include a list of all the tracks and dates that he will be racing at in the UK in 2018?! :angry:  Or maybe I'll have to wait to see how many extra young fans turn up at Cardiff.......?!  Or maybe not!!

And this is the attitude that has British Speedway where it is now...

What it has proved is that fixed race nights have meant nothing to the 'big boys' - Its all about the money....

Why would they even consider riding in a league that is doing its damnest to get rid of them anyway?

Zagar had already said he was looking to ride here next year and they came up with a couple of rules that effectively put a stop to it.

It seems the bspa alter the rules and screw up speedway most years.

I  am just waiting to see how many riders ride to get their average down at the end of the season because if they do well they limit their options or cannot get a team place the following year.

It will be interesting to see what Jason Doyle averages next year following the tweet this year that he seems to have ridden himself out of a job.

Depends on the market which the company is trying to appeal to, obviously.

Yeah you're right. No company would ever touch anyone with tattoos. I feel for someone like David Beckham.

Depends on your market surely.  

If your company produced or sold incontinence pants or mobility scooters then probably not....but if it's something young and trendy then yes I would.   

 

That look is very much a part of today's society.

I've never understood speedway trying to promote itself as a family sport. All nicey nicey. Just a thought but the Polish fans don't seem that way. Does Polish speedway promote itself as a family sport anyone know
