British speedway: it's not all bad, you know!

Speedway is a brilliant spectacle. Take the Final race of the British Final on Monday, for instance - it was tremendous on the eye. These guys were really going for it on a superb track (thanks Chris Morton and David Gordon). I believe those riders wanted to win - no pretence.

It's when you come to the actual fabric of the sport - team speedway - when it starts to get a bit less honest when guys are pieced for short periods during a season for one team, go off in separate ways on another night for another one, and then we all start again in the winter to say who's where next season. Build up the team ethic with riders and fans, make it tribal between riders and fans of different teams, and then you may be getting somewhere.

Like Sunderland against Newcastle and Middlesbrough in 1964 and Sunderland against Teesside 1971 to 1974.

Newcastle v. Redcar can get pretty tasty today - but sadly - not the same as back then.
