Hardest league, but also the best and most experienced riders in the world, our league might not be as tough as Poland, but we don't see as many bad injuries to riders whilst racing.

SCB Regulations:

  • "010.2.3 Amended MA’s
  • 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 (The MA may be increased or decreased)."

Though I'd highlight the important part for you. Nearly every time averages are never ammended except exceptional circumstances, i.e. if a rider has been out the league with a 4.00 but is now a well established GP rider. 

Woffinden being around the 7.00 ave will not have his average altered.

Whatever team you support, if you think the BSPL raising Woffinden's average so he can't return to Britain would be right then you need your head checked. Nothing should allow this opportunity to be passed up.

I don't if it will happen, but enough people with the right contacts have confirmed that at the very least there has been a discussion. 

I wouldn’t be so doubtful if I were you.

I'm not doubtful, just cautious.

They wouldn’t reduce crumps average after he’d been retired for 7 years so can’t imagine they’ll be arsed changing tai average the other way either

Raising his average, to say, 8 or 9, would not prevent him returning.

He ought to have his average raised to be fair to the rest of the league, 12 :D . It's peed me off for years that he's not thought racing in the UK important, I'm surprised he's lowering himself now, sounds like it's at huge cost though!

I imagine there is very little more scary than some of the throttle jockey polish juniors sitting on rocketships when they make a start and you're going shoulder to shoulder with a guy who doesn't even know where he's going on the track.
