The track rides the same from Ht1 most weeks you need to make the gate,Jye was gating and riding hard 1st/2nd bends.More to the point is how Howe and NJB got there full quota when Dany was gating and winning heats!

Fair enough, thanks for the info. Over to Berwick management then!

Kids get in free granted, however how much do they (or the parents) spend on food, drink, merchandise ?

Even when PW was in charge, you needed 750 paying adults to break even

Admission prices were cheaper in Peters day,and if you take into consideration consessions and overheads it was quite realistic .Imo.Even in Waites day we reckoned £50 a point was realistic average.90 points / meeting was £4500.I would doubt attendances today are covering everything and Sponsership is crucial.

At the end of it all if the customer is feeling short changed or feeling they aren`t getting value for money will either go elsewhere or not go at all, that is what is happening right now at Berwick.

Letting kids in free is a great incentive for parents to take them along it probably helps to cover the fuel costs, if they had to pay for them would they still take them ? Another thing I've often wondered once they reach 16 do they come to the meetings with their parents or do head out with their mates , it's the 16 -24 yr olds we need to attract
