mostly slow starting or not bright enough to ride the white line or thereabouts on turn one.

on June 26 Johnson added: “The track is getting better and better with every meeting that goes by. “It’s fast but it’s also exciting and I don’t think anyone could have any complaints about what they’ve seen here this season.”

Simple formula to win at the showground....

1. Gate

2. Ride inside 3m of track 

(riding any wider will result in being overtaken by rider doing no 2. )

As for the track getting better... hate to think what it was like a couple of months ago....:o

Hopefully he won’t be out for long. Wishing him a speedy recovery as I guess everyone else is.

This is where Johnson looked a bit silly with his comments because it was like that for the first part of the season but then settled down for a couple of excellent meetings when they took the speed out but then yesterday produced a track without speed and no outside line. When a home rider is chasing a back wheel going into turn 1 and chooses the Ryan Sullivan outside run, only to come out of turn 2 about 5 bike lengths behind then that tells you all you need to know. What's worse is that when we made a gate then numerous times we went mid track or outside going backwards to wave the opposition through. 7 heat wins v 8 should not bring a 13 point defeat on your own shale.

Jepsen Jensen and Buczkowski would get bums off their seats.

So do drawing pins - can send you some of those if you like. Probably a more realistic aquisition :)

Don't think that he was having a go, just pointing out the facts about how poor it was last night.

Or you know to a man we just wanted it more, worked harder, made better starts, are in better form, are a cohesive team working well together as one unit.....but yeah the track was prepared to help us that’s the reason why we won for a second time in the league at Peterborough this season! 

Ok calm down wasnt using it as any form of an excuse,  Ipswich are the better team this season  but wouldn't put anything past Mr Chapman to ensure he has at least one of his teams in the play offs

Anyway good luck in the play offs think you will need it

The majority of meetings that people have moaned about at Boro this season have been when the track has been grippy though. 

The Swindon match had a grippier track, times a couple of seconds quicker and there wasn't a single pass in the first 9 heats until a cracker in heat 10. The meeting drew praise because of a handful of decent heats at the end and, presumably, a home win.

Race for race there was more passing last night than in the Swindon meeting.

The account on updates for last night matches what I have in my head in terms of passes executed.

I have no team anymore so completely impartial.  Even the bad meetings at Peterborough are better than what I am seeing across the country.

Probably why the sport is in a mess in the UK.

Perhaps poor was the wrong word but I like to see a racers track, which we've had a couple of times this year but that wasn't it. Each to their own I suppose. It's always good to have a volunteer to put the lights out at the end.

Talking of lights, it was certainly something to see Tungate flying down the back straight in the dark with only on 4th bend lighting pole on :shock:

More evidence that Panthers are the poor relations in the Chapman triumvirate.

Buster makes no secret that his main concern is Kings Lynn, and I am sure the Louis's at Ipswich will not allow themselves to be messed about. At Panthers however after creating a great team which has been eroded it looks that Ged and Neil have been manoeuvred  out leaving  those left in charge with little or no direct control.       Neil  Watson would know more if able to tell
