    Will British Speedway Survive ?

    Tell me the reason that you don't want to accept the facts..... And I will gladly pass it on to my wife and her fellow NHS colleagues..... In the meantime enjoy all the conspiracy theory out there

    If that's your argument don't compare it to flu then as the vast majority of flu cases go un tested/confirmed. If you want to quote figures you can only use official ones in which case covid 19 is running at approx 8% in the UK compared to less than 1% for normal flu. People like you piss me off. Neither myself or my wife know any family that has had a loved one die because of flu so far between us we know 4 family's that have had a loved one die because of covid 19. I have nothing more to say if we don't see any speedway this year that is totally fine as long as this is beaten. In the meantime go and stick you head in the sand and let those of us who have to deal and work with this get on with it.

    Well according to the UK office figures 60733 confirmed cases with 7094 deaths that puts the death rate at 8% while Spain and Italy both run at around 10%.

    I think the fact that covid 19 has a death rate of between 6 and 10% make it far worse that flu which runs at approximately 0.1%. I'm genuinely shocked at the amount of downright prats who still insist on comparing it to flu.... Wake up!

    Maybe the BSPA are using all this downtime to take a long hard look at how to make the sport popular again and to relaunch in 2021? Sorry I have been on the vino lmao

    Both these books are a superb read! It's also quite sad how Berry could see how speed should and could be ran and sadly how his predictions of how the sport would end up is pretty much bang on. A great man with so many forward looking ideas however just like some before him and more since the BSPA sucked all the enthusiasm and energy he had for speedway out of him.

    Jason Crump never required a visa before as he was born in Bristol and held due nationality. As far as I am aware he didn't require a visa this year either.

    Louis Junior is doing a great job at Ipswich, the website, social media outlets are superb and the team always looks so professional these days.

    Really riding 500cc bikes with no brakes without medical cover! Are you serious?
  10. Johnson said that from Tuesday mass gatherings requiring emergency workers aresomething "we are now moving emphatically away from". All you need to know really
  11. I would have thought running a sport that could potentially take away I.C.U resources is morally wrong at this time. Sorry but the BSPA has no choice but to postpone the start of the season.

    Prediction thread

    All 7 teams will finish with zero points.
  13. I think the biggest issue is the death rate. In Italy its running at 6% the 'normal flu' runs at about 0.1% in Europe. Then you have the speed this thing seems to double in cases every 3 to 4 days. Like you I thought its just flu until I read up on it. Then you have to factor in that several countries including Poland are in the process of closing their boarders.

    Corona virus

    If the government ban gatherings of more than 500 people most domestic speedway meetings should be unaffected.

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    Wow 7 riders who can all add 1.5 points on their starting averages

    Ipswich 2020

    I was just wondering when Ipswich last went into a top flight season without at least one pole in the side?

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    Ostergaard another on a bargain average. With the improvement that this team will have on their bargain starting averages I'd expect this team to walk it

    Prediction thread

    Possibly, however people are talking about Peterborough. They have riders like Harris Andersen and Nicholls who have been on a downward trend for a while. I think this year its going to be very tight. I'm quietly conferdent for Ipswich. We will have a high scoring number 6 all season given an injury free season I feel Allen can up his average as hopefully can Heeps and Klint. As I said much will depend on crump if he is only scoring 6 and 7s each week we could be in trouble. Just keep the pressure of young Kemp let him enjoy his speedway and he could be fantastic at 7.

    Jason Crump

    What diffence does it really make? Either way He isn't going to come back and not put 100% in. It might actually be easier for him if his son is over. One thing is for sure he'll be as committed and probably more so than some of today's star riders who are chasing Polish money and GP points.

    Jason Crump

    But the league as a whole is far far far lower in standard now aswell its juts the gap between second string and reserve is not so wide. Just a loom at the reading team from September 1990 shows that. Doncaster, Wiltshire,andersson, jonsson and castanga the 1 to 5. Crump will be fine after a few meetings I'd expect a return of 7.75 to 8.00

    Ipswich 2020

    Certainly the most talked about signing Ipswich have made since Gollob. Funny to think they didn't resign John Cook in 97 cause he was too old but younger than crump is now
