Hopefully they’ve finally got the banking perfect for the coming season, the weathers been far more favourable this off season for track works! Hopefully we get a bit of rain between now and the practise day to help it settle!

i personally am looking forward to the season and optimistic we will be entertained with the team that’s been put together, and like Danny said in his piece on eadt today - teams on paper written off at the start of the season often then surprise on track! There’s some gritty characters in there not afraid to get stuck in as well experience from top to bottom!

I thought Workington looked a poor side before a wheel was turned last season and they won everything!

SPECIAL feature on the 'Tiger' in Speedway Star next week...

 

Can anyone enlighten me of the connection between Matthew Pinsent and Suffolk/Ipswich?

I noticed that as well and I tweeted the Star but have had no explanation.

As far as I know, he was born over the border but wasn't educated, lived or trained in the county.

He might have been a scrambler but he was also a grasstracker. I remember reading an article in the Speedway Express that he wrote about riders charging the tapes. He was suggesting that speedway should adopt the grasstrack rules whereby you were excluded for touching the tapes.

I think I'm showing my age.

To paraphrase = he may have been a grasstracker, but he was most certainly a local scramble star when John Berry asked him if he would like to ride for Ipswich.

Well, fortnight today we’ll hear the roar of the bikes around the Heath again as it’s press and practice day. 

The season is nearly upon us and I’m really looking forward to it.

Two weeks until the new season and the anticipation should be building, but for me, with the Witches in the wrong league, now owned by Chapman, (a remarkable man really who took over the running of a sport on it's knees and has dragged it even lower, a man who I wouldn't trust to run a school lollipop crossing during half term) with a mediocre, uninspiring side, I have zero enthusiasm for the new season. Will I be going? About as likely as the likelihood of the town's embarrassment of a football team avoiding relegation.

Weather looks fine for Monday’s P&P so that’s handy. Riders can get a few good laps in and the new lads can gain some valuable experience of their new home track. 

Can remember the last few P&P’ have been a washout.
