On another thread there was a comment about what other sport has supporters checking on the weather as much as speedway - and someone beat me to it and suggested cricket.

This got me thinking,  and while cricket use the Duckworth-Lewis method for determining the results of cricket matches which have been curtailed for various reasons (including inclement weather), maybe speedway could introduce a similar system - we could have the Laurel and Hardy method.

Trying that at the minute and it's not working

Still think it's unfair tbh.

Just race the remaining heats with the scores as they were.

Perhaps not the rules but a darn sight fairer than this.

So Lakeside can squeeze the meeting in! 

Chris Harris available to ride for Panthers at #1?

Chris isn’t eligible as he’s a Glasgow rider.

Was hoping he qualified as Glasgow were out of the competition albeit at the Semi Final stage! 

Clutching at straws!

Nice of Lakeside to offer £7 off the admission. I'm sure everyone will be rushing back on Wednesday...

I would hope that Peterborough do the 'honourable thing' and name the same team as Sunday.

Anything else would be unfair surely. 

20 points down on the night and get another crack at 0-0. Total joke. 

Surely if Peterborough pull this off, nobody in their right mind can say it's fair.

does that normaly happen with rain offs

no its either award the fixture or full re run

its just like being on a 5 1 and the 3rd or 4th place rider goes down then they get 3 3 in rerun
