    Kent Kings 2020?

    Berwick, Glasgow and Cowdenbeath are all under the Scottish FA. It is English FA who don't allow a track around a football pitch. As I understand it the reason is they want the crowd to be closer to the pitch.

    Sorry, I don't know when the rule was introduced.

    I saw racing at Romford, it was a VERY narrow track with a concrete wall that was the fence. It existed before the FA made their rule.

    The big problem is that the FA will not allow a football league team to play at a stadium that has a speedway or stock car track around it. The Scottish FA don't have the rule which means that Cowdenbeath Racewall is allowed around the football pitch.

    Kent Kings 2020?

    When I was involved with Arena Essex, on the Stock Car side, we were told that catch fencing had to be installed but the two sets of H&S who were involved said they would close us down if we built it according to what their opposite number wanted. Took a lot of work and some cunning to get something they would both accept. I lost all faith in local councils at that point.
  6. When we had our first injection both the cards had mistakes crossed out so when we had our second injection we both asked for a new card with all the details correct as we said that the airlines would not accept any corrections. That was no problem and we now have them correct.
  7. My wife and I had our second injection on Friday and we were both given the cards with our name, date of the two injections and what batch/make of vaccine we had received. It appears that different parts of the NHS are doing things differently.

    Peterborough Panthers 2021

    Talk about Bank Holiday doubles reminds me of the TRIPLES my parents and I went to for a few seasons. Rayleigh Speedway in the late morning followed by Rayleigh for PRI Bangers and either Anglia Rods or Mini Rods in the afternoon followed by the dash to Wimbledon for the evening Speedway. All done on public transport from Southfields with my mother having prepared a good lot of food that we had to carry around but at least the bags got lighter as the day went on. In later years White City and Walthamstow doubles were also good but did not involve Speedway.

    Whats actually going on?

    The Speedway Tavern earlier this week both Barry and Martin made it clear that the lack of consultation and discussion was the real problem.

    Swindon Stadium

    I hope they can remember where they stored all the parts and there has to be a question on when they will be allowed into Wales to collect the parts with the present rules around movement.

    Premiership junior league

    The announcement is not even sure how many races will make up each fixture. Surely they should have sorted out how many riders are in a team and the race format before making the announcement?

  13. Thank you for another great video that shows just how much the Warriors will be missed in 2021. I hope things can be sorted out for 2022 so that we can enjoy action like this once again.

    To which I could add Buxton but you would need a few million to get Coventry and Oxford back I fear.
