    Newcastle Diamonds 2021

    It's hard enough pointing the camera where you want to and making sure the picture is ok and getting what you want in that picture, without having to commentate at the same time, trust me.

    Newcastle Diamonds 2021

    The promotion have paid for the additional Facebook advertising again so if you see the ad; like it; forward it; share it; do the necessary to get the thing out there ... let people know who; what and where we are and what we are about... Regards THJ
  5. I didn’t unfortunately, would like to make it down one day. Just an observation from watching the race that is all. If they kept it tight on the kerb that pass doesn’t happen.
  6. The money has been put to good use... you always see what was raised that will never go away... it can still be added to though but that pot is empty at the minute... Newcastle are on a pretty even keel all bills and riders paid up to date... the problem is there is nothing in the pot to fall back on... the loss of the season ticket money pulled that buffer out from under the club... That's why going forward they need the crowds to be as large as they possibly can... supporter power will save the club... if they get out of their chairs and get along to the stadium... Regards THJ

    Who and what are they going to run on a speedway track in the winter and if stock car people want to run it is compatible to share the facilities with speedway Promotions.

  10. Someone's got their pants in a twist! No, I wouldn't want to watch speedway every week at Plymouth but then I wouldn't want to watch it at Eastbourne either. I am not a fan of small tracks and even less interested in whatever Zane is doing. Although wasn't Zane at Poole last week watching? Bit weird to attend a meeting when you've been sacked, but okay!
  11. Blobby did you attend the Plymouth fixture?

    Glasgow v Scunthorpe Friday 6th

    If it goes ahead are the two teams as in the last few weeks and who have the Tigers got as a guest
  13. Seems a case of both rode mid track off the racing line into the middle of nowhere. Stick to the kerb and that doesn’t happen but fair play to the Plymouth boys for taking advantage of that.

    What Offends Me And/or Gets On My .....

    My grammar ? Nuffink rong wiv my grammar. I went to a proper Boys Grammar School so I know what a past participle is, and I know you shouldn’t finish a sentence with a preposition nearly. And I know what makes you go blind, and it ain’t moonshine whisky. That’s what you call a rounded education

    Poole vs Edinburgh 4/8/21

    Roundabouts in Poole bigger than the Plymouth track! Not that I have a problem with it. But it was mentioned on the KL vs Sheffield thread that the reason Josh did so well there is because he prefers the bigger tracks, so not surprising he did better today than Tuesday!
  17. Wouldn't have said the crowd was any bigger tonight than it was on my two previous visits, the demoralizing opening night v/s Redcar and the visit of Glasgow but it is difficult to judge. Decent meeting made more interesting due to the Kings fightback and last heat decider but again dusty despite much tracotring and even a sprinkling of rain later on. Also seemed to be a bump on the inside of turn 1 early on. When I saw the lineups I thought Kent only need one of the bottom three to score a few points to win, one of the bottom three did turn up in Gilkes who looks a prospect but Heeps was poor until his final ride. For the Brummies. Castagna rode well, almost hit the fence in heat 2 but recovered to sneak past Giles for the win picked up more precious points and didn't stick to his favoured inside line as much as he usually does. Morris thwarted Nicholls well in heat 9 and sealed the win with third place in heat 15 but made a mistake in his first ride which cost him points needs a heat win! Harris looked peerless in his first 3 rides including an impressive backstraight blast past Batchelor in heat 11, but made no impression after missing the gate in heat 13. Thomas went from 1st to last in 3 laps of heat 12 - poor, Shanes was always in the mix but never gated, showed Morris how to pass Morley in heat 5. Riss was poor after a good opening win, just didn't have any speed, nothing like the rider who scorched to a 15 point maximum at Perry Barr for Redcar inn 2019, thought riding at 1 would suit him more than 5. Grobauer very much under the radar until his final ride. For Kent. Gilkes impressed without winning a heat, Batchelor was untouchable and quick in his final two rides, not the case earlier in the meeting - the red of Kent suits him more than the yellow, black & blue Tigers kevlars I've seen him in a few times. Expected more from Starke but 9 points is a decent return I guess. Morley & Mulford never looked like troubling the scorers really, Morley can count himself unlucky in heat 8 Gilkes and Castagna both drifted wide on turn 1 leaving him no room, should have been all 4 back. Nicholls was very hit & miss, poor opening ride, looked quick second ride, struggled to get the better of Shanes in third ride, again looked quick in heat 13 but then nowhere in the last heat decider. For Heeps see Grobauer, but he has enough experience to be better than he rode. Heat 12 was the best race of the night. Thomas gated, Starke blasted past him (which I was surprised he hadn't done when chasing Castagna & Grobauer earlier) as Shanes battled past Gilkes, Gilkes made the mistake of following Thomas on the curb as Shanes built up speed around the outside. Shanes past both, then Gilkes also got past Thomas as the Brummies reserve made a mistake before retiring.
  18. No comment on the heat above then and zanes brilliant move oh no you wouldn’t comment on that would you but I suppose at wonderful Wimborne road you have 15 heats like that every week….. not.

    Birmingham v Kent 4/8/2021

    It was fantastic, not seen it that packed in a long time. Lee Kilby when interviewed in the break said David and Peter Mason were very happy. Of course it's just one meeting and we need good crowds every meeting. We have Leicester this month and they travel in large numbers normally plus next week it's Edinburgh which should be an attractive fixture. Credit to the club aswell, really promoted it the past 7 days and the fans responded. Plenty of fans care about this club and we don't want to lose it.

    Poole vs Edinburgh 4/8/21

    I don't think the result was ever in doubt however the league isn't going to be decided on who wins away meetings at Poole. If this was a two legged affair then i'm not sure six points would be enough of a lead for you to take back up the road for example. There's a long way to go but Edinburgh need more from reserves and Lawson for sure.

    Fathers and Sons

    For a Speedway Club with such a short history, may I humbly submit the following: 1964 Sunderland 'Saints' - Ken Sharples (Father), Paul Sharples (Son). 1973 Sunderland 'Stars' - George Barclay (Father), Terry Barclay (Son). Our 1964 Team had 9 Home Meetings only, as we were closed down after that. Our 1971 to 1974 Team managed four years before the same thing happened to us. So in that short space of time, we tracked two Fathers and Sons in the same team. Must be some sort of record? Does anybody know of any others in so short a time?
