Yet Webbo you still go.  Must be like going to the Cinema to watch the same film time and time again, knowing you didn’t enjoy it the first time.;)  I don’t blame Buster, more the fans who pay £20 knowing full well they ain’t gonna enjoy it.

Send me ya £20. I’ll flush it down the loo for you.  Least it will save you a few quid on fuel. 

You  speak a lot of sense,   If it was just about the money I would have packed up long ago.   It's  the occasion,  the moment,  the time when I can escape the misses and drift back into nostalgia. There are many reasons why I still go. but keeping contact with many friends is the prime cause.  

Plus,  I would hate to think there was a fantastic meeting and it was on one of the days when I didn't bother to go  :(

8 races gone, not one single pass or overtake after L1 B2. Grippy track is a joke!!

Yep, one point from the two guests....not good enough. At least I saved my money by not going.

Sadly I have not seen a single meeting this season. Last season I went every meeting at Rye House except for the last one. I know it is possible for me to get to Poole, Peterborough, Isle of Wight and Belle Vue by train but all would cost a lot of money even with an advance rail ticket which given the British weather and fixture changes don't really seem a good idea. 

I am 65 and have been watching speedway since the age of 3. I don't expect Grand Prix stars for £5. Over the past couple of years I have been to two Junior Championship meetings at Rye House and very enjoyable they were. 

So I am a stay away fan who still follows the sport and would love to have a local track but after a lifetime with tracks all around London I now find I have no local Speedway or Stock Car tracks within a sensible distance which I find very sad and as a parting shot I pray that Galliard Homes find a massive sink hole and fall into it, having knocked down my second home, Wimbledon Stadium.

I'm big enough to admit I thought he would score more than Bates. His Lynn ave is 4.67 from memory. Last Lynn home meeting against Poole he scored 8 from 5.

Josh is going well. I don't know what happened tonight, but he was a reasonable guest for Hans pre meeting..

Simon went from 15 metres in on and retired in another. But ran 2 lasts. I thought he would be good for 4 points.

Scotty was very poor. 

The Panthers were only 4 behind after HT9

If Scot had scored 6, Josh 7 and Lambert 3 it would of been much closer.

I don't trust Poole guests in general, but Poole had nothing to gain by Josh not going well, ( both teams no threat to Poole) and it has cost him money.

I wouldn't be surprised if the recent  guests who ride in place of Andersen are riding for a set fee so whatever they score or the effort they put in has no bearing on them
