    Stars vs Aces - 11th April 2024

    Early days, but Belle Vue, Sheffield, and Ipswich with their 2 big hitters looking good.
  2. What sort of crowds do the Comets get now? used to love the Saturday nights at DP when I lived up there 2004/5, Stoney and Steady, crowds of 1200. Whereabouts is new track, must try and get up there this year. Good luck for the season, great to see them back.

    Speedway Star

    I noticed that, just the ice speedway.. Landshut in Polish third tier. League fixtures for Poland, Sweden, Denmark, also Czech, Italy, France, Norway. As it said speedway is being overtaken by flat-track in most countries. The Star is still a good magazine for what is now a minority sport, still clinging on, sales must be well below what they were 50 years ago, in speedway's heyday. We're fortunate to still see it on sale in major supermarkets.

    Witches v Brummies 28th March

    Fair play to Brum, kept it close, Witches unlucky with Emil's two falls. Can see a top 2 battle between Sheff and Ippo for title so far.

  6. Looks like the Ox were Cooked and roasted. Masters hasn't got dialled in yet. Shame the Poirates are not in Premier, not the same without them and Swindon in top league.

    Excellent issue, full programme of European fixtures as well.
  8. Good to see the Ox are one of the success stories of British Speedway. With the millions of peeps that live within an hour or so drive of the city should enable regular big crowds at Sandy Lane for Premier and Championship meetings. Quite a few Swindon fans I know are attending. Great for the sport.

    Brummies v Tigers 25/3

    Air fences were a welcome addition for safety reasons but does obstruct views unfortunately. Was the same at Swindon, terraces were too low, and only helmets visible from bends on grass banks.

    Dream League

    60 years ago, was my one and only season watching the Rangers and the great Squibbo. Geoff Penniket was my favourite rider. Still have all the programmes from 1963. We watched Wimbledon after that with occasional journies over the river to Wet Spam and Ackney, as Bjorn Knutson was my favourite then. Moved to Swindon 1967,went for 5 years then had 30 year break before going to Workington then back to Swindon. Was at the last meeting 2019.The occasional trip to Oxford and Cardiff now.
