    Newcastle Diamonds 2021

    As very few ,well established, promoters at clubs with long history’s say they break even , a new promoter running at a hired venue with not very friendly landlords ( reportedly ) and a budget team then breaking even would have been regarded as a major success. I hope the club survives but if people are not taking up free entry then the writing is on the wall.

    Stadium Racing

    Read the full context of the posts !….the suggestion was to just run 10 meetings a season, which would never work for those clubs paying rent and on a lease.

    Stadium Racing

    Most of those that don’t own their own stadium as that’s how they retain the right to run at the stadium, it would be simpler to ask ‘ who owns their own stadium ‘ ? The answer is ….very few !

    and pay rent for 12 months on a stadium your only going to use for 10 evenings ? Think again.

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Doubt it, Newcastle are on their fourth team manager this season and we are only just into August !

    Club Merchandise

    Very little time required, no capital or expertise really. Most clubs leave it to the company producing the items ( most good stuff for the GB clubs is produced in Poland ) to design the gear which can be ordered individually and paid for by the pre ordering fan . Just needs one person at the club to co-ordinate the sales and handle the profit margins for said club. Simples!

    British final 2020

    Agreed, Brennan should be a candidate , I’m somewhat baffled as to how Bates gets to be first reserve when he’s never been seen for months ?

    Newcastle v Redcar (Champ) 1600 Hours 25/07/21

    Nothing at all, a little dusty but to be expected but perhaps the home riders wanted it done differently?. The riders were given the ‘ hair dryer ‘ treatment by the management perhaps that was the only excuse they could come up with ? Expected more from J.Wright and Roynon but if you fall off on the parade lap then expect issues !

    Newcastle v Redcar (Champ) 1600 Hours 25/07/21

    Track looked smooth, but you’ve done away with some of your home advantage some what by taking out the bumps. Took a while but some decent races towards the end. Expected more fight from the home team , Howarth being the star man by a long margin. Bears guests were worth every penny, excelling them selves and added to good scores from the three Bears then it was an easy win. Couldn't get near the famous food as the cues were way too long but that was the smallest crowd I’ve seen for a Redcar derby match. Hope it improves as don’t want to lose our ‘nearest and dearest’.

    Redcar vs Newcastle Fri 23 July

    Interesting that the ‘ thread ‘ disappeared yet the majority name caller was the second one to post on your new thread. Anyway….nice to see the Newcastle fans have jumped on the Redcar thread and we hope to see you all on Friday. Would think your team will perform well at the STMP and make it another tough one for the injury struck Bears. We still haven’t seen the best from all 7 ( now 4 ) Bears so a good choice of guest reserves will be essential and the management have done well so far with their choices. Diamonds will be difficult to beat at Brough too so I’d settle for the 3 points at home and be happy for a point up the road but having just seen the Sarjeant is now out ( now only 3 original Bears ) who rides Brough well, I think Bears may struggle to get it.

    That’s very different then, thank you for clarification.

    Wow, that was quick, no wonder there’s a shortage of riders if you can get dumped that fast.
