Glad to see Chris Holder not qualifying for the GP, think we need to keep the standard of the competition at a high level.

He isn’t good enough anymore simple as that basically 

Must be a good 10-15 riders more worthy of a place then Chris now but he still has been there and done it and now time to move on

And something that can never be taken away. World Champion. But he is still good enough to cut it in this league.

 I said after Dustgate, there isn't enough shale on it, hence why they didn't/couldn't water it :t:

Would of been way to slippery.

The track needs money spent, and plenty of work.

As I said you can't polish a turd ;).

If Poole is losing money as article in SS says then might be why MF has not got the cash to spend on the track? Is the club still up for sale..?

Guess if the track is that bad the riders will refuse to ride it,not rocket science.As for losing money, with i assume Poole being the best supported team being on the coast with lots of holidaymakers what does the books of all  the other premier teams look like.The promoters according to the echo article know it needs attention just wonder why it wasn't addressed pre season.

Hi, I am thinking about going to a Poole meeting, the one against Peterborough at the beginning of August. Can someone give me any advice on which are the best (cheapest) hotels to stop in, maybe within walking distance? Where to park my car once I'm at the stadium, how much parking/tickets/programs are... Any advice for a first time visitor would be appreciated, thanks very much. Looking forward to seeing what Poole has to offer.

Matt Ford is in denial over the track condition at Poole and has been for several years. He’s lost some good sponsors because they feared for rider safety and, refused an offer from another to buy the shale needed to rectify the problem. The problem goes back at least to the Chris Holder and Darcy Ward era when both would be openly critical of the track..
