Recommended Posts

Just watching Jack Holder in Poland and it fills my heart with joy knowing we played a part in producing such a talented rider.

Been posted on a Championship thread that both Peterborough and Kings Lynn possibly not running  at all along with perhaps 2-3 other tracks, even if there is any form of racing in 2020 so perhaps Tungate does know the score concerning his kevlars.

Whilst it did not say this , a communication received recently from KL makes me think that this is entirely possible.

I thought Bluster would have been at the front of the queue to stage a few meetings. League racing might be out of the question, maybe the pride of the east at Lynn, if restrictions are lifted later in the year.

YOu may be right !Who knows.  However  financial viability will be deciding factor

If they dont run then your entitled by law to your season ticket money back in full, will be interesting to see what responce and the timescale involved in this happening.

If people wanted to press the case then I'm pretty sure that they could argue what the definition of a speedway season always has been and that it hasn't been delivered and isn't going to be. It's a local issue based on terms and conditions at each track. Peterborough is quite unspecific in terms of numbers but does say in the press notice " Why not secure a full season of Premiership action at one of the fastest tracks in Great Britain? " and that hasn't happened and isn't going to happen so higher up confirmation isn't required IMO.

My guess top priority at KL is getting the stock cars up and running he must have lost a small fortune on that front .

Certain that is the case, got a feeling of foreboding over the future of Panthers

Speedway at KL is secondary to Stock Cars without doubt - the concerns I have regarding speedway is the age group mainly 50+ will that age group turn up ? As that’s the majority age group and most vulnerable to the virus.

That is the big question for all speedway promoters. If the league season is scrapped, how many will risk running a few open meetings.

There would still be the restrictions in place no doubt which does mean they would be taking a risk.With an open meeting you could always pull the plug if it was not viable.

Not sure where  this comes from or how up to date . Seems like an interview some days ago on Radio Cambridge or Face Book / Twitter . I suspect Carl is as much in the dark as anybody else , as I doubt that Buster keeps him totally in the loop.  What I can say is that at last I received a reply from the those working for the KL boss of bosses offering to refund my season ticket money.   This to me means ( and being cynical is part of my DNA) that there will be no Speedway or Buster has got something up his sleeve as a means of retribution for a perceived troublemaker.
