    Maybe the club have miscommunicated the wearing of masks As for the £19.... may of just as well made it £20
  2. Falcon1983

    with or without

    streaming only adds to the cost of running a meeting, would be a financial disaster for most if not all promotors

    what averages do they come in on?

    Whats actually going on?

    Probably not a popular thing to say but I think the NDL needs to be scrapped completely now, the UK should run with just the Premiership and Championship as a professional and semi-professional league structure. The aim should be for a 10 team Premiership within the next 2 seasons and if you take Swindon/Somerset coming back then it would create a 12 team Championship if Mildenhall and IOW go up into a Championship. Othe Future stars list there are 55 riders with some names missing! thats at least 4 riders per team so you could have 4 of these riders in the Championship running at no.2/4/6/7 with 3 more experienced riders as heat leaders, would be better progression for riders than being thrown in the premiership at no.7 from the off You could then look to have a development racing programme consisting of 4 riders per team and encourage as many clubs to participate as possible and have a mixture of 125/250/500 junior racing on either as a 2nd half event or if say doors open at 6.30pm for a 7.45 start have them doing their programme before the meeting starts. say a 6 heat format where each rider gets 3 programmed rides track experience only no points, any that are good enough come into the rising star programme when ready as a 1* rider

    I may have read the SpeedwayGB website incorrectly so they are either 24 or have less than 3 years racing in the Championship & Premiership so not sure how old Bates is, if Bacon is 28 he's given grace for not having ridden in the top two leagues for 3 seasons? The rising star criteria can also be explained in full.Rising Stars riders are 24 as of the 1st January of the current year or have less than three years professional league experience to also allow other motorbike sport crossovers ie: motocross, grasstrack etc, have an average under a Premiership League CMA (Calculated Match Average) of 5.50, or under a Championship League CMA of 6.50.Riders whose average is above a Premiership League CMA of 3.00 and a Championship League CMA of 3.50 are classified as a 4-star rider.Riders whose average is below a Championship League CMA of 3.50 and above 3.00 are classified as 3-star rider.Riders whose average is assessed or has a minimum Championship League CMA of 2.00 and below 3.00 are classified as a 2-star rider.Riders who have not competed in any professional league are classified as a 1-star rider.

    riders have to be U24 as of 1st January and have less than 3 years "pro" league experience which is why there are riders who are rated 1* who have no average in the PL or CL apparantly the age limit of 24 allows for cross-overs from other disciplines

    I like something like this However it is open to manipulation as you cant trust the promoters who regulate their own sport would only work with a separate governing body running the sport If your no.1 doesnt ride Foxhall well he can just pull out with a mystery illness and then your next two heat leaders who might ride Foxhall well get 7 rides

    Who are the Rising Stars?

    The better system would have been taking into consideration there are 12 Championship teams Grade C/D (1 & 2 star) - British Riders Only A list of riders who Championship clubs must select to ride at no.6 & no.7 with C grade at no.6 and D grade at no.7 Grade A/B (3 & 4 star) - Commonwealth Riders Only A list of riders who Championship clubs must select to ride in the main body of the team starting at No. 2 & No.4 Each club picks 1 x Grade A/B/C/D all set points money Clubs then have a team building limit for the remaining "heat leader" spots, Grade A & B can include Aussies that qualify to race over here with the 3 heat leaders its just an upgraded National League Based on 2021 season results riders can fluctuate between Grading if someone struggles as a 3 star rider they can drop to 2 star etc. But this is just me who think its just should be a Two League structure

    Rowe replaced with Greaves or Shanes Kennett for someone else

    Without seeing the averages I'll take an uneducated punt at 1. Crump 2. Heeps 3. Lawson 4. Kennett 5. King 6. Rowe 7. Kemp How much over is that?
