Disagree, why do fans need to know the team so early? Surely if you are an attending fan you'll go along - as long as they have a team before their press/practice day? 

I'd agree if all teams were in the same situation, but as you see all the good riders being signed up, you know things have got desperate

Surely the promotion would be announcing the rest of the team if everything was sorted, I'd imagine they are pulling their hair out more than the fans. They have numerous constraints to work with as you all know ......

Its not the best way to keep what paying customers they still may have left by leaving it so late, they have had the same time as everyone else and yes the budget is obviously the main stumbling block,  two main sponsors who must be now thinking what the hell we let ourselves in for, 

Its been obvious that Iversen turned them down weeks ago.

Got to ask will they actually start the season.

Maybe it’s a case of “once bitten twice shy” .   We thought we had a Team when we rocked up for Press and Practice day last year and then look what happened.   Can’t blame fans for worrying or being sceptical in the circumstances.

So how do you work out an average for Jason Crump? 

I was thinking the same thing the other day. It can't be his last one, so who knows. I think he would average 9.00 at the Showground once dialled in, and probably 7 away from home at this stage in his career ?. I would of thought 7.5 would be fair, maybe :t:

You can’t!

His last established MA is 11.07 from 2008/9 as far as I can see.

Art 16.2.6 reads: AMENDED MA’s have been amended with the Approval of the BSPA GC or Directors for:
a) Riders who have been absent from British Speedway racing for more than 3 seasons
(NB. The MA may be increased or decreased).

Yeh true. I'm sure i remember in the 90s my team literally going down to press and practise day before they confirmed anything a few times.  One year it was after..

 

I remember that, and was going to mention it. And then they won the league title.

Crump should be no higher than a 5.00, even then will struggle for a 4.00 average imo

I expect they have offered terms to riders which have been turned down and are playing a game of brinkmanship to see who cracks first.

Well somehow that 11.07 would need converting to 8.35, as that is what would  be left if Tungate and Ostergaard sign 

(or another 4 point rider)

1. Crump

2. Anderson 5.79

3. MPT 6.30

4. Harris 6

5. Tungate 6.59

6. Wilson-Dean 5.47

7. Ostergaard/ 4 pointer

OR sign a 3 pointer and Crump can be 9.35  :-)
