Need to see the whole outfit also previously when we raced Peterborough the race suits were very similar so something needed to change.

Swindon did when Peterborough were in the top league years ago, we had purple kits when riding away, the colour of our main sponsor.

Speedway attendances were also a bit healthier then .

Hi

I have tried to find out (a) Has the new Swindon  Stadium started/finished? :unsure:  (b) the new season first meeting is Swindon v Belle Vue on Thursday April 11th is shown in the Fixture, Will that meeting happen? It is only 5 weeks away. 

Does anyone know answers, please?

Thanks

Roger (rogero)

Hopefully its sorted before the early meetings. Development league meeting due there on the 22nd April. Its one thing professionals turning up, refusing to ride and going home with all their travel expenses covered but its mightily unfair if that is inflicted on total self funded amateurs.

Attendances haven't changed much at the Shabbey since 2012. I noticed the year before that in 2011 crowds were down. Probably a combination of finishing stone bottom and Leigh Adams retiring.

Leigh Adams retiring was a major issue. His replacement (Scott Nicholls) was a disaster too. He needed to pull up some trees to win over the Blunsdon crowd in the first place, especially being a former Coventry Bee and fierce rival of Adams himself. But he didn’t really do himself justice on a track that he admitted has never been his favourite. 

Goodness me that was an awful season. I noticed the gaps in the crowd that season for the first time since 2016.
