    Poole Pirates 2021

    Government ministers now saying off the record that chances of June 21 lifting are zero.

    It is all slipping away.

    Typical Leicester.

    Eastbourne 2021

    Eastbourne have said they were interested in having an NDL outfit for the 2021 and running a 'second team'. That would be quite a boost to the sport as a whole and for up-and-coming riders in the South East. Not sure if they would want to join the league but some open meetings at that level could be attractive and help bring riders on. I suppose it would depend on how big the league was. Quite a few riders around, I would imagine, who might enjoy riding for the Eagles, especially when they could see a progression route. There is something worthwhile about 'growing your own'. By the way, the news of a possible NDL team was given in the club's online magazine Flying High 3, before anyone accuses me of day dreaming.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    You will like this as the Publisher. Actually I think less is more-- the 64 pages is tighter, more focussed on what most (uk) fans are looking for. You Polish coverage is good and appreciated (+Sweden, Denmark) but I am not sure the preview needs to be (was it?) 128 pages. Personal view, I know, but I can imagine how the financials stack up.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Alphabet order helps the reader who wants to dip in and out before settling down for the big read. Anyway, those predictions tended to be poor when the honours were dished out.

    NEW LOOK FOR STAR

    Excellent season preview edition. It will take some time to read it all; the 64 pages are packed with content and the presentation and design is superb. Top job by everyone at the Star and as Phil Lanning pointed out on social media, for less than a coffee at a High Street national chain. I would add to that: where the claim to be coffee is debatable. No debate about this week's Speedway Star...in fact, it is five stars!

    Covid Plans

    Not sure on that but I'm told Eastbourne have talked to other clubs about what they are doing.

    Covid Plans

    Online for the Eastbourne Eagles and the ticket sales site has been running for weeks. Go to the website for details...easy to book.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    So where's the official photo? Or is that it?

    Poole Pirates 2021

    Hope they get that resolved sharpish. Only 55 cases reported in the last 7 days in the whole of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole council area.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    It is all very strange indeed. The more I look at the photograph, the worse it becomes. Riders faces in shadow, a large chunk of the Leicester track above their heads and, of course, not looking at the camera. Your theory may well be right but there is no photograph on the club website.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    Team may well look smart but the official photo on Speedwaygb is a shocker - dark and the riders not looking at the camera. How on earth did the Kent PR man let that one out? It portrays a poor image of the club (pun intended!)

    Jake Allen - not a very well kept secret

    Allen it is.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    Yes, I know but you need to be their early to get a view with a £99 ticket and you face being on your feet all day or carrying a portable chair. For a mid-point ticket you are likely to pay around £300 and then there is car park - £60 last time I went.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    £100, blimey you do Silverstone on the cheap.
  20. Eastbourne Speedway's free magazine Flying High had a feature in the last edition on the SRBF and there was a mention of a hope to have a BEN fund meeting later in the year. You can see the magazine at Eastbourne Speedway's website...good read all round and all for free.

    Newcastle Diamonds 2021

    Surely, reading the press releases on the website is as easy as reading them on the forum.

    Swindon Robins 2020

    Eastbourne only had one Promoter (Trevor Geer) after Mike Bellerby stepped down and the BSPL says you need two. So Lee fits the bill, perfectly having had a licence at Swindon. It's good news for Eastbourne and I know no more than I read about Swindon. Like any genuine speedway fan, I hope Swindon come back in 2022 even if it meant the Eagles losing Lee who appears to have made a cracking start down here on the Sunshine Coast.

    Kings Lynn vs Ipswich Witches May 17th 7.30pm

    Eastbourne sold lots of tickets already for the opening matches. They have well and truly grasped the nettle. Buying process is really easy. Eastbourne have got it sorted.
