B woodhull

K dicken

Why would you sign three 3 pointers when that team comes to 1.74 under the limit?

Fair enough, but at least surely it would be a better option to keep L Woodhull who did well for you last season rather than sign K Dicken who was well off the pace.

 Not going to right kean off just yet. 

 

Im sure if it was possible luke would have been in that slot. Buying was out of our hands. Unless things have changed of course

That's a weaker team than anticipated  but think I'd have Andy Mellish in it.  Not really concerned to win the league as long as the racing is as good as it's been these past two years and that we see the riders progress.  Think Kyle will be a big scorer this year.

What’s the deal with Luke?

Concentrating on his cars apparently.

Andy had a pretty bad injury. Worse than most know. Think that had a say in it

Having seen Kean Dicken several times at Birmingham last season there’s no way he his ready for the NL, after unfortunately breaking his leg at P&P day he was miles off the pace lost all his confidence, I think he is one of these Riders that isn’t really interested but is pushed my his Father

That’s unfortunate. I thought Ben would be the most likely to make that choice tbh.

Fans of the Colts are lucky in one respect.  The super track at Belle Vue, rather like Sheffield, is so fast compared with most other

tracks that every home rider, even those with modest ability, soon achieve enough home advantage to see off the opposition. Although,

from comments made quite often, visiting riders love the place, the sheer speed catches them out. So a mediocre Colts team at the start of

the season will soon be winning, at least on their own track.    My own track, Lakeside has similar results but for quite the opposite reason.

There is a quite a big risk of him doing the same as he did at the end of last year ,and quitting to go car racing , seems like neither of them are that keen on speedway ,and stumbled on it  as a filler hobby , which is a shame really because they have taken team places that somebody else  really wants ,
