    Odsal

    Well that's all and I'm certainly not a liar.

    Odsal

    I don't know, I would be guessing but I do remember the representing party visiting Odsal.

    Odsal

    Probably because they got the pick of the top events at Odsal.

    Odsal

    I remember someone from Halifax (think it was council) coming to Odsal and speaking to the Hams about Speedway returning to the Shay, they declined the offer and so the redevelopment took place without the inclusion of a Speedway track.

    The redevelopment was by the council and they offered the speedway (by then at Odsal) a place in it, they refused so no track was included.

    That was the 2011 census figure, still not predominant but It'll be much higher than 20% The fact is that Odsal never really attracted paying crowds for league racing. it was all but dead when it closed.

    Nothing new in it.

    Breakaway League

    While there's some truth in that, it does appear to broaden the grey line between sport and entertainment and that's something that many have struggled to find credible about Speedway.

    Odsal

    But not Odsal.

    If I were an Island fan (I'm not) I'm not sure I'd be happy with a few Mickey Mouse events in place of league racing. Anyway good luck to all concerned.

    Odsal

    They have to consider things like parking and nearby accommodation and travel facilities.

    Breakaway League

    Not quite relevant but probably true.

    Breakaway League

    The big difference was that the Provincial league was actually bigger and stronger.
