With all due respect we do know your current speedway circumstances as you post on the forum several times each meeting that you won't be going.

FWIW I don't think anybody has to be a current paying punter to have an opinion, and as others have said those who used to go but no longer do so should be listened to particularly closely.

You are dead right about my current speedway circumstances I should have said my personal circumstances and those who really know me will understand more why speedway isn’t the be all and end all in my life at the moment. 

And you are right again those who stopped attending should definitely be listened too as maybe the promotion might just learn something before it’s too late

I used to walk around 8 miles (round trip) every week with my Dad.

I use to have a motorbike like that

 ;)

 

when i go to Lynn these days I see

myself as a customer not a fan. So that’s how I act. If it’s a meeting I fancy I go if it’s not I don’t.  I pay to get in but don’t put a penny piece more into Lynn Speedway.

Sad really, for all

I have a bike now, and it's totally reliable.

King pulled out of his last ride in the British Semi-Final tonight, with qualification secure, if he's not fully fit tomorrow, wouldn't be surprised to see Wells guest for him & R/R for Andersen.

To be honest I can't blame you for putting your time, money and effort into T20 cricket instead, there aren't many more exciting sports around at the moment and county cricket really knows how to treat its punters nowadays.

We are member at Notts and to be honest they can’t do enough for you they totally respect fans and value fans worlds apart from speedway , our membership includes discount because we live over 30 miles from Trent Bridge - what a great idea that is - imagine Buster doing that on season tickets ? It’s time these speedway promotions woke up and smelt the coffee days are gone when 15 heats is enough people want more and to be valued or at least feel valued as a customer.

You tell the modern young Speedway fans that today and they wouldn’t believe what knobheads we looked.  Then again they probably would.:D
