Says a lot about British speedway when only 7 teams cant be filled with suitable riders.

If you take out the doubling up/down you probably couldn’t fill seven teams. Yes the fall from grace is dramatic hence the powers that be should start to re-build the sport from the bottom and forget Poland etc. Those days when British speedway was a force to be reckoned with are for now, long gone. They should be encouraging riders at all levels and let teams without home tracks compete in the NDL. What is the harm if it is unearthing new talent. Get as many teams as possible named and race matches on a 4TT basis but with one rider from each team in each race over 20 heats. Make it interesting by starting on green light, no tapes and no exclusions for offences. Just handicap the offending rider by the starting position with 10, 20 or 30 mtrs handicap depending on the offence. Just do something different and stop the same old same old routine.

It’s more that you can’t fill both 2 tiers if you took out the double up/ down.

Must surely hear something this coming week? If not definite signings then an update at least on the search. The timeframe CL put on signing his heatleader has expired..

I Understand how sad the news is on Danny Ayers,its a huge blow to not just Ipswich and Scunthorpe,but to the whole of Speedway in general,but before Danny's sad loss,we were becoming a borefest at Ipswich for naming our 7th rider,and potential heat leader,i know Geoff58 says its not Chris Holder,but jesus,he gets everything wrong,although he must get 1 statement right soon(i doubt it though),i now understand the wait to replace Danny is a little understanding,but my god,how boring is Chris Louis,such a great season last year,probably over achieved,but who cares,a chance to name the side early,get all of us supporters on side,looking forward to the forthcoming season,and bang,he takes even longer than last season,he could name Zmarzlik now,and i think i still would have lost interest,but i hope Holder's visa's problems are sorted,as reported and he is named in next 24 hours,but who knows,maybe Geoff58 has finally got something right

I think it’s great suspense waiting for the number 1 or holding out on holder,the season hasn’t started yet but must say they will look silly on meet the riders night without a team , no doubt all questions will be answered

I just posted above yours that surely something needs to be clarified this week. I’m normally one of the more patient sort but even I’m starting to get a bit fed up with it all now. 
But having said that, I’m sure they could easily have completed the team before Christmas but it obviously wouldn’t have been the team they wanted. Let’s see who the heatleader is and fingers crossed CL would have been proven absolutely correct to play the waiting game.

It's just like the mid 90s used to turn up on press and practice day without a full team then sign the cheap foreign rider who could stay on for 4 laps during the afternoon. Franz Leitner everybody. Or the time they waited all winter for a work permit for Miroslaw Kowalik only for it never to be granted.

I have to admit some positive news right now would be good, let's hope Chris can pull a magical rabbit out of the hat for us! 

Its also going to be hard for whoever has the job of filling the reserve birth as I'm sure like myself everyone was looking forward to the enthusiasm of Mr Entertainer this coming season?
