Could be, but the decline of British Speedway gathers pace.

The sport has been in terminal decline here for many years now. Here we are with a chance to rip it up and start again but instead there seems to just be a wait and see attitude. We could hope for some individual meetings in 2020 and take the time to put a proper plan in place to help the sport try and flourish once more but why bother when we can just try use the same incredibly flawed system next year again.

Oh my goodness, have you ever tried that food at Peterborough.......thank goodness I'm a vegetarian.  Twice in the past, my wife has suffered food like poisoning after having a burger there.
It might be a coincidence of course, but I didn't think the thing looked properly cooked when she got it.

Rare if at all  have I had food at Peterborough. The food is course  in the hands of EOES who are responsible for booking whatever provider they see fit.

I'm the same as Wealdstone; I never have it.  I always pack a flask of tea and a sarnie or pie. 

The food at the EoES was very decent when we had the Grasmere Farms van.  Top quality meat - and at least they used to test the temperature with a food thermometer, so it was always cooked properly.  Their big drawback was that they were as slooooow as ar5eholes!  Some of the staff were gormless and were totally clueless when it came to serving supposedly "fast food". 

But I s'pose we've got more important things to worry about than flippin' burger vans  :rolleyes:

As some may know following months of silence they offered to refund my money. This has never been about money but rather the deafening silence from the bosses. Having now heard from them I am quite happy for money to be held over till next season. "Deo Volente"

Hope you got an assurance that there will actually be a Peterborough Speedway team in 2021 before you agreed to hold over the money until next season.

Given that there could be a second spike during close season (the real one), social distancing and/or other restrictions could be with us for the foreseeable future until or unless a vaccine and better treatments appear then I'd still wouldn't bet on viable speedway as we know it happening in 2021 anyway?

The whole season written off because of a flu like virus. The UK has truly gone mad...

As people return to some sort of normality (within the current restrictions), socialise more in groups and spend more time indoors then review the statement after New Year. The UK is not alone is it? The whole world has to be seen to have gone mad.

Most of the world, some countries have not panicked and remained pretty normal ...

Well this is not the thread for stats, theories and conspiracies on Covid-19 so we'll leave it there :)

The number of deaths suggest that this was not just flu and I don’t think any decision makers panicked.  Lots of things could have been done better and some things don’t seem logical - but better to be safe I say

We will just have to disagree on that then ...
