    There is very little kudos (if any) to be gained by the BSPA making effort to promote the scenario you refer. The BBC correctly understand what is newsworthy i.e that they have a contestant whos runs a business that provides pies to Manchester City FC (currently the most successful club in world football) this is significant in a competition aimed at finding a business entrepreneur. Conversely they would see little relevance in saying one of their contestants use to ride for a speedway clubs junior team.

    Super League ruling

    To be clear. The ruling addressed a “pre-existing shortfall” in UEFA’s framework which it had corrected in June 2022 So yes, a new super league could now be formed but would need to have promotion/relegation to avoid falling foul of the same “closed shop”issue faced by UEFA. However, as both UEFA & FIFA would legitimately be allowed to ban clubs & players who joined a Super League from competing in their own competitions (including the World Cup) there would be nowhere for the clubs to be promoted/relegated to/from. A Super League May happen one day, but not independent from UEFA/FIFA

    Just the same as Max said when he joined Lions last year. The same Max who is now the track record holder. They’ll be no issues for Becker at home.

    That’s the point I was making. The rider has no sanction he can take if he’s not being paid. But if he does withhold his services he faces sanctions.

    There's quite a bit of that. The most noticeable one being a rider who withholds his services because of not being paid can be suspended from riding anywhere in the UK!

    When a rider "agreed" to become an asset of a club, he received a form of compensation/payment. The terms of this payment reach beyond a riding contract. This approach does not restrict the rider from signing for whoever he likes. However, It does prevent a club from signing whoever they want if a fee is due to the asset owner.

    The rising star concept is carried over year to year meaning the obligation remains for a rider to ride with the club he was riding for at the end of last season if he wishes to continue to ride as rising star. He can come off the list at any time, but would be required to ride on a true handicap in the main body or at 6. This latter aspect is likely to lessen the riders appeal to team managers.

    Yes the club picks the rider they want to sign. No, the rider doesn't have to sign for the club unless he was there at the end of last season.

    Done so the rising star once signed recognises the contractual obligation he is under to the club who has chosen to take him on. That said, If the club releases the rising star, then the rider can sign for another club.

    The 5th average rider will need to be lower than 7 as currently (if my calcs are correct) there are 19.14 points remaining to cover the three unannounced spots i.e 6.95 per rider. If the Lions bring in a 7.5 rider that will leave 5.82 for each of the other two. However, maths and the understand of the average allocation are not my strongest points, so I'm happy to be corrected.

    Its not. BE included the pavilion & 3G pitch as a sporting amenity providing open space and physical activity on their development which was missing from earlier considerations.

    New Club for 2024?

    Actually, Jonathan Chapman said at the time he would not object to speedway returning to Norwich at the showground but would not agree to the name "Stars" returning to Norwich. The showground did say at the time that racing would only be allowed on Saturdays with practice possible on Wednesdays. After that it al seemed to go very quiet.

    Hopefully, but what are his qualifications and experience in such matters?
