All three banned for the fracas at Eastboune. Cook for 12 days, Kennet and Vissing for 10 days. Ban starts tomorrow.

Discuss.

Statement from SCB.

Over the last 2 weeks, the SCB Co Ordinator has requested witness statements from a number of licenced officials who were in attendance at the Eastbourne v Glasgow fixture on Saturday 3rd August, and also has reviewed video evidence from the scenes that happened prior to that fixture.

It has proven that 3 riders, Craig Cook, Claus Vissing and Edward Kennett all Breached Speedway Regulation 3.2.8 which reads -

Any act which is violent, threatening or abusive nature to any official, rider or any other person.

Based on the evidence received and with the support of 2 SCB Officers, the following penalties have been applied -

Craig Cook - SCB Registration suspended for a period of 12 days 12th August - 23rd August 2019

Claus Vissing - SCB Registration suspended for a period of 10 days 12th August - 21st August 2019

Edward Kennett - SCB Registration suspended for a period of 10 days 12th August - 21st August 2019

I think Cook has got off lightly tbh, and should be NL guests only. Any mention of guest facilities Steve ?

a level of consistency needs to be shown by the SCB, how they have come to those actual punishments is bemusing to say the least but then again nothing surprises me in this sport anymore.

Ironic that the two riders with the lesser bans miss more meetings lol. Isn't that typical of British Speedway?

I'm sure the clubs will be allowed facilities, why shouldn't they

Why should they ? If Messi gets a ban for violent conduct, Barca can't bring in Ronaldo as a guest.

His job is NOT to wave a red flag on the track or walk in front of a rider under power! :rolleyes:
