    Ipswich 2020

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing but as for 2022 who knows as the talk was 2 rising stars at Reserve next season Could Witches still run with Kemp and Rowe as the latter is on the rising star list? Without knowing what is what the first thing they need to do is identify a number one and secure him ASAP

    Why speedway is failing

    well lets have a look shall we.... Martin Vaculik Slovakia Frederik Jakobsen Denmark Nicki Pedersen Denmark Jason Doyle Australia Jaimon Lidsey Australia Rohan Tungate Australia Chris Holder Australia Max Fricke Australia Nico Covatti Italy Tomas H Jonasson Sweden Jacob Thorsell Sweden Kai Huckenbeck Germany Michael Haertel Germany Pontus Aspgren Sweden Timo Lahti Finland Peter Kildemand Denmark Rasmus Jensen Denmark Niels Kristian Iversen Denmark David Bellego France Ludvig Lindgren Sweden Joel Andersson Sweden Dimitri Berge France Adrian Miedzinski Poland Linus Sundstroem Sweden Victor Palovaara Sweden Josh Grajczonek Australia Krystian Pieszczek Poland Rene Bach Denmark Claus Vissing Denmark Jonas B Andersen Denmark I am sure someone will tell me if i am wrong but haven't most of these riders ridden in the UK over the past 2-3 completed seasons or have been linked to racing here again? I am simply asking that people are saying there are a lack of riders but would some of these have ridden in the UK if travel restrictions allowed, plus add Klindt to that list Pedersen agreed to ride, Vaculik has ridden in the UK although briefly, Kildemand, Doyle, Rasmus Jensen, Covatti etc.

    if for 2022 restriction ease for travel, how many of these riders do you think could be enticed either back or into British Speedway? Marcus Birkemose Denmark Martin Vaculik Slovakia Anders Thomson Denmark Jonas Jeppesen Denmark Kenneth Bjerre Denmark Patrick Hansen Denmark Frederik Jakobsen Denmark Nicki Pedersen Denmark Jason Doyle Australia Jaimon Lidsey Australia Rohan Tungate Australia Chris Holder Australia Petr Chlupac Czech Francis Gusts Latvia Andzej Lebedevs Latvia Max Fricke Australia Matej Zagar Slovakia Jan Kvech Czech Nico Covatti Italy Tomas H Jonasson Sweden Jacob Thorsell Sweden Matthew Gilmore Australia Keynan Rew Australia Kai Huckenbeck Germany Michael Haertel Germany Fraser Bowes Australia Pontus Aspgren Sweden Michael Jepsen Jensen Denmark Timo Lahti Finland Peter Ljung Sweden Peter Kildemand Denmark Philip Hellstroem Baengs Sweden Ben Ernst Germany Rasmus Jensen Denmark Lukas Gienhage Germany Kevin Juhl Pedersen Denmark Niels Kristian Iversen Denmark Kim Nilsson Sweden Alexander Woentin Sweden Oliver Berntzon Sweden David Bellego France Andreas Lyager Denmark Brayden McGuiness Australia Mathias Thoernblom Sweden Jason Joergensen Denmark Mathias Nielsen Denmark Ludvig Lindgren Sweden Joel Andersson Sweden Dimitri Berge France Adrian Miedzinski Poland Linus Sundstroem Sweden Victor Palovaara Sweden Josh Grajczonek Australia Krystian Pieszczek Poland Rene Bach Denmark Grzegorz Zengota Poland Claus Vissing Denmark Jonas B Andersen Denmark

    It's easy, as only maybe 2 or 3 riders dont double down from the prem, make it to Championship standard so the 6 prem sides come down with Glasgow, Kent, Leicester & Poole rebrand it as the British League, 10 sides. Leaving the other 8 clubs, Mildenhall and any second sides such as the Colts to run in the National League circa 12-14 sides No rider currently a heat leader in the Championship can double down from British League to National League, use the rising star system extend it to no.6 and no.7 but have a squad system of 3 riders per club in the top league. National League for Commonwealth riders only

    Wolves v Ippo 19/7

    Thought the starke/kemp 5-1 could of been a turning point but then I should probably not think

    Wolves v Ippo 19/7

    Witches failed to capitalise on a 5-1

    These are only the figures they accounted for, if the world goes cashless then Speedway will be over If these were true losses they wouldn't do it Most probably saying they got 300 in the gate when it's more like 900, speedway is small enough to get away with being investigated

    what a way to go out though

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Sponsor a club and become team manager, be interesting to see how this one pans out......

    Yeah he did, but I think if you take 100 riders from other disciplines you might get 2 or 3 who could probably go straight in at a good level the rest would probably have to go through some sort of development league

    I understand from memory an Ipswich based Road Racer called Kieran Murphy I believe he raced Superstock 1000 class, he stopped road racing and had some goes on a Speedway bike but don't think he raced competitively, not sure if that was down to costs or just not picking the sport up quick enough to earn money, he would not have been super young and i guess you need riders that would pick it up straight away and be competitive to earn and the younger ones would be more patient going through the development or national leagues

    If you look at Road Racing such as British Superbikes, Bemsee/MRO events which feeds riders into BSB or those that just do it for the hobby, there are 1000's of riders who all have the same goal to become World Superbike or MotoGP championship, it costs an absolutely **** load of money to progress in Superbikes, even at BSB level unless you are highly sponsored where you keep a % as a wage, 95% of riders pay to ride there are very few who get paid to race, and there is no prize money as such only incentives across certain rounds to make money In the world paddocks in the same, bring loads of cash with limited riders getting paid to race, even some factory support seats its a paid seat As ringsitneck has just said, you need to get people at training days with ex or current riders, why not write to kids who do Moto X, Grasstrack, mini bikes, road racing etc. and say come and give it a try, its a sport where at least you get points money, bit cheaper than the journey in road racing, even if you unearth 3 or 4 new riders per year its a start then you need to build a structure that is appealing for British youngsters to take up the sport over something else like BSB
