Berwick v Workington Championship & Border Trophy 7/7/18. 7pm

Recommended Posts

Sadly in the last 10 years it’s gone backwards every year. Not worth watching now, no passion no heart no racing

Take nothing away from Workington they thoroughly deserved their win, even more impressive when you consider they lost their best rider and were carrying young Bickley at reserve. Sadly it looks very much like yet another season that is going to peter out at Berwick, must admit, and this is the first time I`ve ever posted this but if last week and again this week is anything to go by the actual racing entertainment at Berwick is virtually zero with no passing of any note then I will certainly be picking and choosing my meetings from here on in, thing is there arent to many more meetings left to pick and choose from.

I agree. Speedway at Berwick is dying a slow death. They say they have a fantastic product but I don't see it.

More passing of wind from the ducket tea bar than riders passing on that track.

Well done boys what a result !! 

But that has to be one of the most boring places to watch Speedway , think there was 1 pass possibly 2 all night ..gate and go fest the racing was crap thank god we don’t have to watch that week in week out, and if you take out the Worky fans tonight that was a poor crowd

Went down in a tight first turn in Ht3 but did walk back to the pits, seemed to have arm or shoulder injury, hopefully none to serious.

Plenty of meetings left at DP (though we don't have a clue which days of the week they will be run), AND we get to see people overtake - you are most welcome.

High speed follow the leader is all we are watching these days.

Thing is I dont expect every race to be a thriller, all i ask is value for my £15 entrance, IMO the last two weeks at the least have failed to deliver that.

I think the highlight of of the night was when I got crapped on by a passing seagull, maybe it was a comment on the racing  :party:
