  1. Well done lads. Great result.

    Realism. Doesn’t mean I won’t enjoy the racing. I’m a heat sponsor and I’ll be there every week no matter what the results.

    I’ll be cheering every time we manage anything better than a 1-5

    Having visited Australia many times I’m surprised that any of them would bother coming here. As far as gammons are concerned Australians are white and speak English so are perfectly ok to let in

    I’ll take a single home win all season as long as it’s Redcar

    Gone from probable wooden spoon to certain wooden spoon. I don’t care. I’ll still be there.

    He was a Premier League Riders Champion. It’s fair to say he was no mug but I do remember one of his later visits to Brough when he scored only a couple of points and seemed to have completely lost his mojo. If he has it back he could be the signing of the season.

    Just sponsored a heat for the Gems meetings. Pretty good value I thought.

    Thorsell dropped by Wolves due to “commuting concerns” Going back to the British League whether we want to or not

    The hospitality industry is indoors, pubs and restaurants.

    What a wonderful thing hindsight is. It wouldn’t happen now due to lockdown. When that is over, which will be at Easter as Boris won’t be able to resist the “raising the country from the dead” rhetoric, then outdoor events will be OK if they want to be.

    Last summer I went to the drag racing at Santa Pod in a crowd of 8-10 000. How is that possible but 800 at the speedway isn’t? What stopped the speedway was stadium owners not being arsed to put in safety measures (the drag strip did) and the unavailability of overseas riders.

    More people attend Glastonbury on one day than every speedway track in the country during an entire season. Not comparable in any way.

    Pleased the team is finalised and it looks like the Diamonds will make the tapes. I’ve always been more interested in speedway racing rather than speedway winning and I think we have a team worth watching. Unfortunately, on a personal note, the 4pm start time is a disaster and will probably result in me missing 50% of the meetings. I understand the rationale but it just doesn’t suit me
