Please enlighten me as to which four currently practice on  a  500 I’m intrigued to know as from what I understand only one is old enough to ride a 500 at the beginning of next year in any form of competition . Two don’t turn 14 until late June early July and the other 2 only turn 13 next year.  And I’m sure your sponsored rider is very appreciative of your help and I do agree the sport does need to be run independently.

also could you point me in the direction of a meeting that this has been done before at in this country where kids are in the team and racing in the main meeting and not as a second half slot. You could be right but I would like to see who was riding and in what form. Also the meetings Leon did on his 250 i believe involved 500cc riders in the same race that isn’t happening at scunthorpe 

Don’t why people are getting all “excited or upset” it’s just a friendly meeting I you fancy it attend ,if you don't, stay at home.Would like to think the riders would be paid a fair amount,but wouldn’t hold me breath on that one.

No excitement here I like to have the facts,I will be there as I usually am when there is a meeting . Don’t know about payment for the riders but I’m sure if they have agreed to ride they are obviously happy at what is being offered

You and I both know Young riders will ride whatever is on offer just to get track time.Whether the admission price is just to cover expenses we will never know.

My dad is an OAP and I’ve purchased him a ticket for the next event , So let’s get the bullrubbish out the way by lining Rob Godfrey pockets you must all be stupid there will be better riders on show than the last meeting and Rob is prepared to put meetings on under the guidelines set out by councils , government etc so let’s back Scunthorpe as all the moaners will possibly get there way when it’s defunct . Simple fact support your local track or it might be lost forever

Those attending will be paying £13.50 for the speedway + £1 Car Park + £1 Programme = £15.50.  I don't think that's a bad deal for watching some speedway in the current climate, when there is so few meetings to watch.

Including car park, admission and prog Stoke and Kent were both £17 last year.  Belle Vue at £12 exc car park was the cheapest.

So this is broadly in line with NL admission costs.

VAT to come out of those figures too?

We also need to remember that the size of the crowd has to be limited so if NDL meetings normally cost £13 with around 600 paying fans the admission price has to go up if only 400 are allowed by the rules in force at the moment. Last season I went to two meetings on the Isle of Wight and paid my £13 admission plus around £40 in train and boat fares from London. If the Warriors were to run a meeting this season (they have said they are not going to) I would expect the admission to be £14 or £15 and be quite happy to pay that amount.

Sorry, thought you were mentioning price at Sheffield but from previous posts, I remember you being a visiter to "Sunny" Scunny.

Its actually £15 per entrance ticket not £15.50.

The 50p is a charge by Paypal to collect the money.

Course it is. Makes me laugh when people think promoters do it for the love of it.

 

their businessmen (most poor) and are in it to make money. End of.
