The NSS has the best racing in the country, seems you think everywhere else should close.

Finally you admit it!  Well done.
The NSS is the best.  Every other track should try to emulate (not copy!) that superior level of racing.  That will be done by changing track sizes/shapes over a period of time.

Any new track built should be required to be BV-type spec. 

Anyone wanting to create a polo mint track is doing it for one reason, money.  Doing things on the cheap is never a good approach.

Looking at the bigger picture, do you think tracks shoe-horned into greyhound stadia have any future beyond the medium term?  How many years has Greyhound racing realistically got left?

I don't agree that there are plenty of decent tracks in this country, most are flawed in one respect or other. 
I also acknowledge it isn't just about size, Berwick and Sheffield generally produce little passing.  As I've said before, size, shape, width, material. banking, and prep are all key.

Red Flag, you've assumed I'm a clay head, that might not be the case...

All of the existing tracks could provide decent speedway racing if the riders were mounted on more suitable, less BHP, bikes. We are led to believe that this is being looked into, hopefully quickly, so that restricted power bikes are on track in the UK in 2019. This does not need to be new, different bikes costing the earth.
