Hopefully a bit closer than that - the beach is 15 minutes/7 miles away.

There's nowt like being positive....and you're nowt like being positive!

Of course Redcar can't match Bell Vue for facilities but at least give the venue a chance, you never know, you might actually enjoy the day ;)

 

Just as a footnote - you can pre-book a seat in the stand for £3 ...oh , and we'll be missing 2 heat leaders so doubt we'll progress that far but I'm happy to go along and watch some, hopefully, great speedway

I'm not knocking Redcar personally at all, my second favourite northern team :t:but for a meeting of this size , I don't think its the right place to hold such an event, we missing 2 Heat leaders too so no doubt the Tigers (scottish) will think they have this sealed ;)

HOW are the two qualifying rounds going to work?? 11 into 2 groups I don't think so.  Wouldn't it be better to give the winners of the 4s in 2017 a by to the final and have 2 groups with the same number of teams in  them, the winners going to the final with the highest points scoring 2nd team from the groups.

If my memory is correct one of the past discussions was that the winners of the last years final should be able to defend the title, and that all teams should be at the meeting ( remember all the fuss when 2 teams were taken out  then re-instated )  Why make something so difficult when the answer to a good meeting is so simple!! don't the organisers of these events learn from the past or do they just like to upset the fans.

Back straight will be open - I believe they estimate around 1000 can be held there.

Will be some extra pop-up bars as well I believe.

Not exactly sure of the format, but one semi will be over ten heats, the other twelve. The final twelve as well I would imagine.

Not seen all the teams but I understand that at least 5 of the teams will not be including their current highest Ave rider in this meeting.

I think this will be a very tight meeting, with quite a few potential winners. Favourites, I would make that, Sheffield and Lakeside. After that I would go for, Peterboro, Scunthorpe, Glasgow and Ipswich. I think Edinburgh and Worky could be spoilers and if anyone slips up, could create a shock. That leaves the local teams, Redcar Newcastle and Berwick to make up the numbers. Up at the top end though, its a wide open meeting, for anyone who wants to grab it. The racing should be terrifically close and very exciting. Just noticed Ricky Wells not riding. Scrub the Monarchs chances.

Will be no King for Ipswich - will therefore be tracking both reserves in the 5 as Haertel out as well

Has Danny King, had a relapse with his injuries, or just unavailable. It makes a difference, to Ippo's chances though.
