I can imagine a facility where Danny's race jacket is not used for a month and covered by RR as a mark of respect would be allowed, and even the most anti Godfrey fans surely couldn't find fault in that?

Think that would acceptable to most.

That’s what happened after Lee Richardson died. In fact I think it was about two months before Lakeside signed a replacement and Lee’s position in the pits remained empty in that period as I recall.

Different circumstances, Lee was in the declared 1-7 and his tragic racing accident was mid-season.

I take it you do not read the posts from the anti Godfrey gang.

But as speedway riders don't have a set riding number, how do you pick a number not to be used?

From my knowledge of the beautiful man i think he would consider the best way to honour whichever racing number he was to be issued is for the incoming rider to give their all and entertain to the best of their abilities. That is exactly how it would be if Danny was the incoming rider.

This is very difficult. How do we start to replace "The Greatest Showman" ? Yet somehow we must. 

I have one rider and one rider only in mind for this job. He would be there on his terms. He's a great guy, experienced and would carry the burden well. 

He would leave us with 0.01 to spare.

Only person Entertainmentwise to replace Danny would be Niike Lunna and sadly won’t be him.

If it wasn't for the tragic circumstances surrounding the club just now, I'd have thought this was a bad joke.
