  1. So now that the riders have been announced, whatever the meeting is called, will that affect attendance or people buying the PooleTV stream then? Just asking?
  2. Oh well!! One would think that members of the BSPL Executive Board (cough - Dan Ford) would know what's what and do their best to maximise promotion of the meeting? He states in the SS today ' Some clubs have chosen to run a one-off individual meeting but are not part of a series. Each one is it's own standalone meeting and ours is billed NDLRC because I got permission to call it that!' Bearing in mind Poole can't run a NDL level team due to stadium costs, I guess the majority of local fans attending will just be happy to see a meeting featuring some riders with current or previous Poole connections. 20 heats - with run-offs if required - plus a 'winner' to be 'crowned', all for £15 max - whats not to like?!
  3. Development Series?! Rider Championship?! Same riders - what's the problem? most of those attending (mainly regular Poole fans) won't give 2 hoots.
  4. REGULATIONS: NATIONAL LEAGUE RIDERS DEVELOPMENT SERIES WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, 2024 THE following extract from the SCB Regulations confirms the qualifying criteria for the National League Riders Development series: 013.2.1 Qualifying Criteria Each National Development League team must declare 2 riders from their Team Declaration plus 4 wild card riders and 2 reserves who are eligible to particate in the National Development League, selected by the staging promotion. 013.2.2 Race Format The 16 rider, 20 Heat format is utilised. Any ties for the top 3 positions after Heat 20 will result in a run off. 013.2.3 Racing Regulations All starting offences will result in disqualification and a reserve (if there is more than 1 reserve then the reserves will alternate) will take the disqualified riders place. Reserves may take a maximum of 5 rides, with all points scored counting towards final classification. The method for deciding the hierarchy will be as per these Regulations. This system will also be used if a meeting is abandoned after the completion of heat 12, the result will stand at the last point when all riders had taken the same number of rides.
  5. Don't get waylaid amongst the Spires............!! Enjoy. BSN for me. COYP
  6. All Poole updates state "National Development League Riders Championship", (with race format as stipulated by SCB). Riders' names have been published, so personally I don't see any issue! People will attend....or not! Should be a decent meeting but then nobody can guarantee that - as with any other speedway!!
  7. If the host promotion is taking the financial risk (rather than it being a 'shared' event) then they will promote it to maximum effect whichever way helps to ensure no financial loss. Whether the meeting is 'one off' or 'first of a series', it will still provide the same racing and a winner on the night!

    Swindon Stadium

    So everything is closing at Blunsdon! Does that.mean the GI head office is also moving? To Poole Stadium maybe? $#!t
  9. Good to see Max Perry and Nathan Ablitt included too.
  10. Why should there be reductions/discounts for a 'top' Championship meeting when the abandonment was for a Premiership fixture? Just asking.........

    King's Lynn v Oxford 17/06/24

    Janowski is lined up to replace Lebedevs in the next GP if Lebedevs busted ribs don't heal in time after his crash in Poland yesterday

    Poole 2024

    Well Poole managed 44 points in the BSN Series fixture with Hagon only scoring 6 points and the Cook Bros only getting 8 points between them!! So Wednesday should be a tight one again. Maybe a Cheetahs fan will start the meeting thread!!?

    Poole 2024

    As the Poole announcement states, they were hoping to host either the BSN series semi-final or the KO Cup meeting on 26th but neither opponents would play ball!!

    Poole 2024

    In the National League section of this forum there is a debate going on as to whether this meeting is a 'one-off Grand Final' as Poole have announced or whether its the first round of a Series for NDL riders - with other rounds scheduled for Edinburgh, Leicester etc. later in the season?

    Poole 2024

    Max Perry will probably get a chance too! Maybe even Vinnie Foord as one of the wild cards (he was certainly 'wild' at Poole's last home meeting)!!

    Poole 2024

    Poole 2024

    Oh what joy!!??!! 30% more expensive and having to race on Mons/Thurs?? No chance - unless there are changes eg if it ever becomes just one league then clubs will insist on racing on their chosen race day!!
