TOP GUN - Individual - Sheffield 28.04.19 - 4pm

Recommended Posts

Opening the thread for these amazing individual events. My advice is get down to Owlerton for this one. Always a meeting that serves up some great racing. Usually a field that has a bit of an international flavor to it as well.

Surprised Joe Lawlor isn't riding in this or has he chucked it all in after 'Vape gate' with Glasgow? Josh McDonald was looking good in last years Young Gun meeting, it'll be interesting to see how some of them perform this time around.

Not a bad meeting, despite the gulf between some of the riders. 

Why did Scunny let List go?!? Looked bloody fast today and only ended up second because of a very determined ride by Jordan Stewart in the final

not according to the updates site where they say that there was only one decent race and that was the final.that makes it 4 decent races in two meetings then.not exactly thrill a minute stuff.no change at the programme stall, turnstiles or cafe and the bar was closed.makes me wonder that its a good thing i won't be going this season after all.

Sorry to say but really poor meeting, take away the final and actual racing was non-existant even when 2 evenly matched riders they were on the same line one behind each other. Jeff List impressive, pity he is on a 4point average.

Ah, the old, “I didn’t go, but it was a crap meeting” trick :t:

They were young lads racing, it was never going to be GP standard, but I thought it was alright.

I didn’t have any problems getting change at the turnstile, cafe or when I bought my programme. You would obviously have a better idea of whether the bar was open or closed from your armchair than me as I didn’t venture upstairs, so will concede to you on that point.

i went, and there was only one race, heat 15, pretty much like last week, follow my leader out of the 2nd bend

if the track doesn't improve over the next few weeks the numbers will drop, it wasn't even worth £10 yesterday never mind £16 for gate and go in the championship

I attended and have to agree with what you are saying, in fact when I entered the stadium around 20 past 3 and the track looked as though it had not been touch from the previous week which was very disappointing.

The whole meeting felt very very flat.

Personally I am not keen with afternoon speedway, maybe a 5pm start time might improve things.
