The problem that Poole have is that their top 5 at Somerset in both matches have been poor.

Somersets top have outscored Pooles top 5 by 15 and 13 points at home, meaning if Pooles reserves have a poor night then it could be a 20 point reverse.

At Wimborne Road last time against a weakened Somerset Pooles 1-5 were outscored by 8 points including only 4 for r/r for Lawson.

Its pretty obvious that 2 or 3 of Pooles top 5 need to up there game to keep it close at Somerset

Also Freddie only got 3 their last time and Worrall 2 , if they dont improve on that then Poole may well find they have a rather large deficit to make up

Even Harris who has been excellent only got 2 last time at Somerset.

Said afterwards the track was appalling with nothing for racers.

That is our problem if it is one line and no grip our riders may struggle again, May has already shown his hand that this is how he will prepare the track so we have to make sure we can adapt this time.

Still cannot understand why we are so bad around Somerset, especially as our Nos 1 and 2 used to race there. Over the 2 legs, Somerset still massive favourites for me

Agreed those two even joked about not being as bad as the last time before the last meeting at Somerset and yet they were still pretty bad.

"Think the question Poole fans should be asking is the team good enough this season, indivually ? If the answer is yes then where has it gone wrong in only finishing 4th.  Could it be that all is not well in the Poole camp.  Certainly a season of underachieving thus far. "

 

I think Swindon, Wolves and Leicester would like to underachieve on the same scale!

That will have to change, we need to gate and keep to the kerb, no point in trying the outside line.

Why?

Surely Garry May will realise the Poole riders think that the inside line will be the place, thus then changing the track to make the outside more favourable?

I can't see him doing that. I believe it's the only one ever made so must be very valuable. That's probably why Kelvin has cleverly disguised it to look like a screwdriver. :unsure:

And give Chris Harris the racing line he wants? I thought that was why they changed it last time, to stop Chris scoring?
