Originally posted 15 years ago on the now-frozen 'Internationalspeedway' website, the updated comprehensive data on the 21 meetings undertaken by the S.African team is now to be found on the Speedway-SA website, HERE

I have a query in regard to the underlined comment that the website is frozen. I have just visited there and it appears - to me at least - that it is 'business as usual'. Do other visitors find there is a contrary happening to my own finding?

Sadly, the sort of response I might expect from you. Indeed I did query the same issue on a thread elsewhere - not all users there may also enter YEARS GONE BY. I regard the Brian Collins website as being one of the most informative dedicated to the sport's international history which was why I decided to Post my query on several BSF threads. But let's smile about my apparent misdemeanour - it enabled you to YET AGAIN criticise me.

Surely it is not of such importance to you that you can't wait, say 30 minutes or even an hour or two for someone to answer? As it was,you got the answer pretty quick and still have to ask elsewhere....probably a pm to britmet who mentioned the site would have sufficed.But no......

Let's stop this nonsense yet again and get on with this thread

To clarify for the benefit of others. Brian's excellent 'Internationalspeedway' website is still open,  but since the advent of Windows 10, after almost 15 years, his site-builder programme no longer functions in Win.10,  So no updates or additions, - for any area or Tests - , nor even an explanation, are possible. 
There has been no 'business as usual' for about 2 years. The site is, in effect, frozen.
