Got a Feeling Mr Bordeaux may be commenting on this remark :rofl:

Personally i get your point re costs but i think the answer is somewhere in between . Bellago would want far too much + flights etc...

Where is Luke Becker based ? i know there is possibly visa issues .I am just thinking if he is based locally travel cost would be minimal and the experience at this level would do him the world of good .   

You have mentioned our rent cost a few times. What sort of figure do you estimate them to be ?

LOL...I used my words (and my imagination) very carefully and I am sure that comparable riders to Adam are on that type of deal...so if Mr Bordeaux needs an Agent...let me know....if he isn't on that type of deal he should be...;)

I’m sure Bellego lives in Britain? possibly with Nick Morris or Dimi Berge?

Can I suggest we all calm down a bit...

I don't think we have had a crowd over 500 yet and with big rent to pay we simply can't pay (in my opinion) the £1000 a meeting some of the PL guys will want to ride in CL.

I can't imagine Adam is coming for a guarantee of less that £1000 per meeting so just impossible to have 2 like that.

Better to look at riders like Stoneman who are hungry and probably on 50 quid a point tops.

What exactly are we all supposed to be 'calming' down over? The fact that we've praised the promotion for doing their best?  How much is 'big rent'? Perhaps you could enlighten us all. And what makes you think that the Masons can't afford to pay riders? Your right in the fact that Stoneman is hungry and probably cheaper wages than some, but if we had more like him you'd be the first to moan that it was just a NL team. Why not just appreciate what the owners are doing instead of being so negative and picking holes everywhere

Hi, I am thinking about going to a Birmingham meeting, the one against Somerset at the end of July. 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 Birmingham has to offer.

Reading the Redcar press release, it seems perhaps that Ben had a falling out with someone up there?

Barker could fall out with himself

Or just practising, unless Plymouth or Somerset signed him for that challenge? It's a possibility

Edit: In fact yes, I've just seen this, the teams for today's challenge at Somerset... Looks an interesting meeting

Teams
SOMERSET: 1 Todd Kurtz (Capt) 2 Nicolas Vicentin 3 Anders Rowe 4 Luke Harris 5 Henry Atkins 6 Zack Cook 7 Saul Bulley

PLYMOUTH: 1 Ben Barker 2 Adam Extance 3 Ben Wilson 4 Richard Andrews (Capt) 5 Danny Ayres 6 Jamie Bursill 7 Adam Sheppard

Doing the Somerset vs Plymouth challenge. Not sure if Barker thinks he should not be racing that was just Redcars views of his off track issues.

Newcastle up next....another 'winnable' meeting :t:

Would think so especially with Paco moving up and Ash Morris dropping in at reserve, he must be looking forward to getting a bucket load of points.

I didn't know that about 'Ash' …. but that really is like a 'new' signing !?

He's becoming hard to catch around PB......
