Does anyone know if the Tungate Musi race has been posted anywhere on social media please?

Might be worth looking on the BV website or Speedway GB..You get the odd vid on there. Worth looking..

I dont i just think your promotion could have done more to attract more through the gate. Simples. Now, before you have a pop, please read my other posts. Thank you..

Most people have commented on a throughly enjoyable meeting , on a great track with plenty of passing from both teams 

Especially from young Dan Bewley  with Musielak and Bellego also impressive ....But you saw something different ???, 

And your comment "where was all the passing on this super duper track ?" was ridiculous .  No mention of BVs promotors 'doing more' BTW

Perhaps you should read your posts ?

Even though we lost, I thoroughly enjoyed the meeting.

Me too,  thought the Aces did well to beat a very impressive Robins outfit by 10,

think our reserves swung it in the end ?

Two good reserves you have there, Drozdz looks promising

Yes Drozdz could be a match winner at the NSS , 

Morris had a off night by his standards, and Batch seemed to lack his usual speed ?

Otherwise it would have been a lot closer .... Still believe the Robins will be the team to beat come the play offs

He was ok out of the starts. If had dropped a tooth or 2 off of the rear, he might of had more speed.

Speedway for All has all the heats on you tube. Not sure how to send the link. If you search Belle Vue Aces v Swindon Robins you should find it.

Think Drozdz will become a really useful sting in the Aces tail as the season progresses. Do fear for him at Monmore though, be good to get him some quality practice time round a tight track, eg.Edinburgh or Lakeside. I see Wolves as playoff quality, the experience could prove vital, both for Damian & the Aces down the line.

 Thought Robins were a bit unlucky not to pick up a point. Have always had time for Musielak since he showed up at our old dog track first time (with Wolves) & really attacked it. He was good last night & that heat 9 was definitely out of the top drawer!

If most meetings were of that standard I for one wouldn't have walked away from the sport. I'm not in favour of super tuned bikes but last night didn't come across to me as a track simply for fast bikes. If you think Batchelor has more talent/trackcraft than Bewley for example I suggest you are rather biased.

Totally agree, I would happily pay my money to watch speedway at the NSS every week, whether on TV or not. unfortunately I don't which is why I also have walked away. The National Speedway Stadium is one of the last few shining beacons of British speedway, frankly there are not many others. Unfortunately there are not another 10 - 15 stadiums / tracks on a par with the NSS to make the sport prosperous in this country. When someone of the experience of Martin Dugard says  "speedway is dying on its feet " you know its true

Same as last year, we're one rider short of an ace team, early form is promising though, considering we were written off by many of the so called experts.

Wolves have Monday as their regular race night, Poole retained their regular Weds nights, and Swindon have kept a majority of their Thursdays, the real drop in attendances appear to be BV and Rye, is it a coincidence that these two clubs have been forced to move from their preferred race nights? Somerset have also had to move from Fridays but don't know how that has affected them, perhaps moving away from the busiest period on the M5 has helped them?

It will be interesting to see what the crowd is for the Monday Swindon v   Rye House fixture .How many people apart from the die hards can afford two meetings in 5 days? i cannot remember many meetings at the Abbey being held on a Monday unless it was a Bank Holiday or Tv meeting.

Later in the season most of the Swindon matches are on mondays, it will be interesting to see if a regular change has any effect in the numbers attending.
