They have track covers in at Wroclaw today, they said it’s to stop the track baking in the sun but really we know it’s to stop Phil Morris getting near it with the water bowser

Can anyone confirm this:

2nd. & 3rd. highest scores have a run-off for a place in the final.

The winning pair of the final (or 2nd & 3rd. placed if it's 3 - 3) are crowned champions.

Therefore you could have the 3rd. highest scores in the heats & become World Champions.

let hope that Tai is wearing his Union Jack underpants otherwise the haters will have something to batter the lad with.   

You mean he wasn't last night! How can he call himself a patriot? Whichever underpants he wore last night, were the right ones even if they were from Poole ( an old Xmas present no doubt ) But if we do win the Gold Medal ( or indeed one of any colour ) I do think he should show us which ones proved up to the job!

The Poles only have to get to third place to win the whole thing. 

You can guarantee that the track will be different today and the Poles will have different engines with "Polish speed".

It's Pan Gone the Down as the press release might say if put out by the BSPA, FIM or any theoretically responsible body

Oh Yes! and that 3rd place to win, will likely net them a Magnificent  Form Behind Victory to prove that they still rule the speedway world in two man, four man or seven man speedway. When the Final is in Poland, as it should be because they can make it a financial success there. And when they have even more than three GP's in Poland they will have another World Champion.

Makes no sense, stick to discussing potatoes & marigolds mate.

Poole ride in Blue thought you may have realised that.

Lovely. What's that got to do with the pair's being held at Poole, the best & biggest club in the land?

..and the rider finishing sixth can still be British champion! Apparently it's now the law for every big meeting to finish with a 'grand final.' :mad:

High def rain radar, coupled with Blitzortung Lightning, looks like Wroclaw is about to get a pasting (4pm) UK time.... So that's what the covers are in place for.....

I think in the runoffs and finals if it finishes 3-3 they should rerun the race  until it finishes a 4-2 or 5-1.  

Or if you want something a bit different if it' a 3 - 3 have a matchrace over 2 laps. Winner takes all
