    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

    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.

    £100, blimey you do Silverstone on the cheap.
  7. 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.

    Perhaps the PR man couldn't go.

    Somerset 2020

    Unlikely the reporter, a professional trained journalist, would give up so easily.

    The facts were well set out by the Star. Seems Hancocks are not talking to media. They don’t have to but by staying silent they give oxygen to all sorts of theories.

    Kings Lynn vs Ipswich Witches May 17th 7.30pm

    Eastbourne have been selling tickets online for a while now for their opening matches. It is clear, there will be no "walk-ups". As for maximum attendances, the 25% of maximum capacity is one yardstick. Local authorities seem to have a much more complicated and convoluted formula that takes the numbers way down.

    Kings Lynn vs Ipswich Witches May 17th 7.30pm

    You can bet in this first phase there will be no on-the-door (night) sales. I'm certain BCKLWN and NCC Public Health will not allow for all sorts of reasons, including the club capturing track and trace info and the possibility of crowding at the turnstiles. Yes, it does mean some people who want to go may miss out, unless they can find someone to buy them tickets online.

    Speedwaygb website doesn’t cover amateur racing ..nothin ever about Lydd.

    And we're lucky to see the youngsters at Eastbourne too. Love spotting the next 'big name'. Who will it be with the present crop of juniors at Eastbourne?

    KENT ROYALS 2020

    You say it was cheating. I call it gamesmanship. Kent broke planning law that could have jeopardised the whole operation. Huge difference.

    So the curfew applies when Kent want it to, or not if they want.

    KENT ROYALS 2020

    Cant remember but it was significant. I can accept allowing a race which is under way to finish but this started after curfew time. You can bet the anti residents 'clocked' it. Dangerous precedent set.

    KENT ROYALS 2020

    My complaint is Kent Speedway picking and choosing when to implement the curfew. Seems to me that the word curfew needs no room for interpretation, no latitude. Actually, by going over the 8.30pm deadline, Kent Speedway put themselves at risk and probably gave ammunition to the people who oppose the operation.

    Match continued after curfew time.
