    Not necessarily, if a manager wanted to protect a rider or riders for heat 14 he need not nominate them for the heat 14 vote. But he then risks a reserve or low scoring rider ending up in heat 14.

    And for those who might query this.... what’s a turnstyle? Is it one of those gate type things in the country that moves?
  4. Couldn’t keep Doyle to 12 he got 13 lol Musi did well if that was his first visit and Batch was Batch getting roughly what I expected Our reserves will make sure we are tough to beat at home and I make Swindon the favourites as I’ve said just one rider away from it in my opinion Lampart did struggle and so did Zach For us Allen was superb and Heeps and Lawson as well. Harris and Lawson will score that sort of total each week where one of them gets 8 or 9 and the other 10 or 11 Bellego was poor and a very poor score from Danny to cost us a bigger win. KP was ok but needs to be getting 7 at home really Still I’m happy with the way the season is going so far..... 2 of the best two teams have come to Foxhall in Belle Vue and Swindon and left defeated so I wouldn’t be worried when we face the poorer teams like Peterborough and Poole
  5. Lampart was his new Bellego last week, until he scored 10 on Thursday.
  6. Yep Zach is his new Bellego....best to ignore him we will always have Zachs back

    Thanks for the info. Gives Zach a bit more time to get going at Swindon. No need to panic before new averages come in.

    Yep. They were certainly there when the Robins hit 50 last week.

    Stoke 2019

    I quite like Coles he was at Newcastle a couple of seasons ago his gating wasn’t too bad he was usually in points scoring positions but just couldn’t get the hang of brough park and he used to fall quite often unfortunately, when he later got dropped. I’ve always thought he had something about him but for whatever reason he hasn’t seemed to have kicked on which is a shame.
  10. Top four score 38 of the team’s 42. That’ll be the usual story away. Still, it is a good point. Well done Ipswich.

    Right am i right in thinking if selected for heat 14 you cant ride heat 15 ? The manager gives you the choice in of 4 riders to select for heat 14 .Then the two not selected i presume the manager selects in heat 15 . So in reality the supporters are only really deciding if a rider goes out in heat 14 or 15 ?? is this correct ? Now as you do not know who is in 14 or 15 at time of voting for the opposition it all seems a complete waste of time. It came up on my twitter feed just and i voted for the Swindon rider for this evenings meeting it seems pretty ridiculous to be honest. Head to Twitter now to vote for heat 14Swindon - @swindonspeedway - Doyle, Musielak, Batchelor, EllisIpswich - @ipswichspeedway - Allen, Lawson, Piezcszek, Harris As a example all four rode in 14 and 15 all the vote done was decide the order.

    Do these matches count towards the averages?

    And just for those who might query this, all turnstyles take cash on the night.

    Birmingham v Leicester

    I can recall, I think it was in about 2008-2009, it had been fine all day. the stadium was filling up nicely, and then almost without warning, at about 7.15pm the heavens opened. And it didn't stop. An hour later, no-one could believe it was still raining and the inevitable happened, the meeting was called off, with those who hadn't gone already, facing a wasted evening, and those who pay the bills, having a big hole in their finances. I got the news at about lunchtime. I looked out of the window,. with spots of rain appearing on the glass, looking at a few weather forecasts on the web, and thought, yeah, sensible decision. And let's face it, what would any of us have done in the same situation? I wonder if those fans who want promoters to take the extra risks would want to club together to fund the insurance premium for a policy that will compensate promoters for the financial losses that they could incur as a result of taking the extra risks and falling foul of them? Such "pluvius insurance" policies do exist. See if you can negotiate one, and pay for it? Maybe this could be something that the Federation of British Supporters Clubs, (or whatever that concoction that the BSPA was proposing, is called) could mastermind? They need something to do.

    Birmingham v Leicester

    With 3 teams from 2018 not riding this year plus there should be enough spare dates to rearrange, calling it off was the wise move. I would think most of the riders would not be local so travel time is to be allowed & riders have to be there a lot earlier than the supporters.
  17. Think Rosco will stick with him tbh he is far better than he is currently riding . Rosco will help him find his form just like in previous seasons hopefully anyway . I know you always have to hate a rider for swindon i take it you have selected Zach now then.I look forward for your constant hate campaign against him.
  18. After watching him for the Rebels for last 3 seasons I don't doubt that! Will end season as number one at Scunny i reckon too.

    Stoke 2019

    When the present promoters leave, I will go back and give Stoke a chance.... it is in fact my nearest track !!! No respect for the clowns running Stoke
  20. Today
  21. Zach struggling big time again. Can see Stefan Nielsen coming in.
  22. 11 Harry McGurk (Berwick/Cradley Heath) Berwick ?
  23. Jake Allen looks like he could be the signing of the season. So far proving to be a steal on a 4.56.

    Stoke 2019

    Late on this, but I thought it was a good report in Speedway Star on Stoke in last week's issue. I went to the track last year and thought it was a bit tired BUT saw some good racing on a well prepared track. People were friendly and helpful. No complaints from me. I wish Stoke well. It was a far cry from what I had been led to believe would see..
