I emailed the club yesterday with my choice as to wear I would like to sit, I have had a reply saying they will do their best within Covid restrictions.

I usually stand on the back straight more or less opposite the starting gates

Be interesting to see who Brummies have as Guest for Riss? Pretty sure he in the SEC Challenge Saturday in Czech?

You are correct - Erik is unavailable on Saturday.

I get the reason for have to reserve a seat place but with the space over on the back straight I`m sure you will be fine.

Understand sometimes it can’t be avoided but speedway constantly disappoints doesn’t it.

Absolutely, what disappoints more is this is Berwick`s and Birmingham`s first meeting of a new season. The SEC Challenge meeting would've been in the diary for some time so this could've been avoided.

Which is probably why Birmingham tried to put the match back (like the Edinburgh and Newcastle ones) but Berwick refused.

It is barmy isnt it?

A sport whose leagues run with so little credibility and kudos, actually plan in to make it even less credible and give it even less kudos in winning.. 

And if anyone says "shortened season due to covid" then why run junior teams if fitting in first team meetings would be an issue this season..

Or..

Plenty of double headers with the junior team could have been replaced with two teams from their own league visiting..

What you often get when these meetings are planned in is "Team A" wanting the match on due to a 'weaker' "Team B", and "Team B" agreeing to it because they have lined up a track specialist ringer which actually can improve their chances.

"Please take us seriously"...

Speedway Star reports Scott Nicholls will guest for Riss (about equal) but getting Broc Nicol in place of Grobauer is akin to daylight robbery!

As mentioned Scott Nicholls guests for Erik Riss while Broc Nicol guests for Grobauer, I also hear Berwick go with R/R for Coty Garcia who is on Covid lockdown.
