Lambert must ride in Denmark if he is contracted to a Danish team and it is an  official fixture. It will just mean that at Poole tonight the runners up will move one place higher.

Absolutely nonsense. If tonight was a GP, GP qualifier (practice) etc I'd understand him being missing, or if it was Iversen it's understandable.

No way should a British rider's priority be a Danish league fixture over a British Individual "official" fixture. 

2 meetings running Robert Lambert as let the King's Lynn Stars down.

Maybe his contract with Denmark was signed when it was declared that GB Speedway would be Monday & Thursday?

He rides for King's Lynn, our home meetings are Wednesday. 

Denmark should not be priority over a British fixture for a British rider.

But it seems they are, so be it, we still have two good reps for any fan who has travelled 6 hrs down to Poole!

I disagree, I believe Lambert was our only rider with a realistic chance of winning this or at least making the podium. 

Iversen's form is very ropey, Proctor has been good but making the top 3 tonight isn't realistic

Couldn't be at Poole then, pretty sure Greyhounds is on Saturdays.

Probably not but on a Saturday night under lights at end of September- this meeting has so much history and deserves more respect from riders and promotions .

Denmark has priority on a Wednesday. It was agreed. Britain has priority on Monday and Thursday.

Not a lot of point having priority on a Thursday, only affects Swindon home meetings!

Totally meaningless meeting now needs to be run end of the season on a Saturday night 

Or at the very start of the season before Poland and Sweden kick off as the end of the season often sees a few unexpected 'illnesses and injuries'..!

In fact, launch the Speedway Season on the back of it...

Run it at the NSS, no better place to 'showcase' the Sport than watching the best riders in domestic speedway riding on such a fantastic race track with modern stadium facilities...

Do a fan zone in Mcr City Centre on the Friday and Saturday with all tracks in attendance....

Maybe even run the Championship Riders the day after and make a Speedway Weekend out of it...?

(Wouldnt cost too much in hotels for the riders to stay over on Saturday night too as many will have 'qualified' for both meetings!);)..

One of the biggest meetings for the Premiership this season. Looking forward to an great encounter, hoping the Wolves riders can win tonight.

Is there anyone going to this meeting who would be able to text updates to the Updates site please? If so, could you please send me a private message which includes your mobile number.

Thanks

We are still looking for a texter, if anyone could help, please let me know.

Thanks

When was the date for this meeting announced? Perhaps Danish League had their fixtures in before this was announced?

Unfortunately this is what happens when you move the goal posts. Agreed by Polish, Swedish, Danish & British federations that we would have priority on Monday & Thursday. With the rearranged fixtures planned on Wednesday nights it could get worse. Bspa should have stuck to the agreed days.
