We might not be the best 3 teams in the league but boy we are all pretty damn well turned out.

Ipswich Witches, K L stars and Peterborough Panthers 

Good on em too.It's a team sport and i feel that's the way it should be(kevlars).They look like a team now just like in any other sport.Plenty of different sponsors shown clearly in white as well:D

Poole are sticking with race jackets for the time being - just as they did when winning the title last year.

The Promotion have fully explained their reasons behind this decision at last week's fans forum.

And a wooden spoon to fight for :wink:

In a seven team league I’d be careful saying stuff like that in case it comes back to bite you on the bum :wink:

Sad really when you see a club like Poole who once had the reputation of signing all the top riders and being the one club allthe big guns were desperate to ride for.  Probably the most professional run club for a good number of years.  Now reduced to looking like Ragbag Utd.   Couldn’t the Poole fans on here set up a crowd funding to buy some team Kevlars.  The likes of Shovvy, and his love for Piratesshould be good for a few K

How about it Steve ?

New co-promoter Danny Ford explained that there was the chance of a new sponsor set to fund team kevlars but the deal fell through at the last moment - BUT hasn't ruled them out for the future as they are still seeking new sponsors..

It must be expensive to fund 14 kevlars over the season for the merry-go-round of the pie rats :wink:

In 1998 teams wore suits over their kevlars... couldnt they do the same. Ipswich and Coventry had their own kevlars though, think other teams did too. If a guest was needed then they wore the spandex onesie!

I’m amazed a ‘tight T-shirt’ sort of concept hasn’t taken off. That looks much better for guest riders and would be a much more affordable way for the lesser clubs than race jackets, whilst looking better too.

Why not go back to the old days when on a wet day riders would wear a boiler suit over their leathers.  Each club could wear a different colour.  

Thats me saving all clubs a few K :)
