    Belle Vue -V- Wolves (Eurosport)

    Does anybody know how to get a refund on tonight’s tickets as I cannot make Thursday…I cannot see any info on Belle Vue website and I have rang them and get an automated message saying tonight’s meeting off and to refer to the website !

    Belle Vue -V- Wolves (Eurosport)

    Ok..so I cannot make the new date on Thursday so I assume I would be entitled to a refund. ?

    Belle Vue -V- Wolves (Eurosport)

    How soon do they make a call ….I have tickets and I can quite easily see me getting there and then them calling it off just before the start when in reality it had little chance of actually going ahead

    Exactly , and Belle Vue v Wolves is an ideal TV match…I’ll be there but if I wasn’t I would look forward to that one on TV

    Is anyone losing interest

    Well I have been to my first live meetings this year since 1993 after watching the Belle Vue v Sheffield match on TV and my son asking to go…..we went to Belle Vue …I didn’t think 20 quid was extortionate in the current sporting scene..tickets were bought online and sent to my phone within a second and scanned at the gate…really easy and convenient….no masks needed to be worn whilst watching the racing and I was impressed with the whole show….a COVID sellout and a good atmosphere …got tickets for the Belle Vue v Wolves match now and looking forward to it… been a fan from 1978 and then a follower of my brother in law racing upto 1993 so seen speedway from all angles but not been to a live meeting since 1993 but I have been impressed this year from what I’ve seen and hopefully after July 19 things can get better at all tracks as it definitely seems different local authorities are interpreting the rules for crowds in different ways

    Wolves Closure

    The match I attended at Belle Vue against Peterborough definitely had both teams on the truck on a parade lap after the draw.

    Should RS be the No.7

    I cannot see the point of the Rising Star if they are not number 7…they need to be in heat 8 and unable to be replaced…as it stands a reserve like Ostergaard will always get heat 8 and the rising star will continue to struggle and earn no money which isn’t really helping anybody

    Belle Vue Aces 2020

    We will..If we don’t come out then when every bugger is vaccinated then we may as well spend the rest of our lives under these restrictions…the virus is something we will have to live normally alongside like every other virus out there….speedway crowds will be normal from 19 July I’m pretty sure. Any news of when the Belle Vue v Woves tickets for 12 July will be on sale as I want to book some. ?

    Belle Vue Aces 2020

    I think under the circumstances with 6 teams in the league it's not a bad option to cancel the next 2 and stage them after the 19 July when I'm totally certain restrictions will have been lifted... Its a shame as I have just started going again after over 25 years away !.... I thought there was actually a good crowd for the Peterborough match I went to which was sold out so if they can get all them plus the extra allowed then it looks quite rosy for Belle Vue at least... I hope all other clubs can ride out the storm until 19 July.

    Interviews by Lee Ashby - David's Son

    Just to mention, I have just watched the current Sam Ermolenko interview and I have to say it was really good, possibly the best one so far and well recommended.

    Thank you….I have now just subscribed…I have been a fan since the 70’s and then on the other side of the fence as such when my brother in law rode in the mid 80’s to mid 90’s so I should like these I think ….cheers

    Joe Owen NL was he the best…?

    I used to like the Old National League and it certainly had some good riders in it…Joe and Tom Owen were almost invincible for a while and Tom was happy to stay at that level as he had business commitments and was earning really good money at speedway as well..fair play to that… we followed Belle Vue but used to visit Ellesmere Port a bit and John Jackson, Steve Finch and Louis Carr were almost invincible as a heat leader trio round there. I was always surprised that some really big scorers in the National League back then seemed to struggle in British League outings whilst some took it in their stride and did ok.

    Masks or no masks

    I went to Belle Vue v Peterborough and you wore a mask entering the stadium and going to the bar and food van but you never had to wear it sat in your seat…seats were pretty booked and distanced anyway with ticks showing the sold seats. So no issue there.
  14. I booked for this right after the last televised match via the Belle Vue site and got the e tickets within seconds...looking forward to this...not been to a live meeting since my brother in law stopped riding nearly 30 years ago !!......I have been a TV watcher since and now my 16 year old really fancied going after we watched the Sheffield match on TV so we are going.....weather is glorious and will be tomorrow...I just hope all riders make it there to ride...Shows sold out on the Belle Vue site now , albeit limited capacity so that’s good.

    Same..just read on kindle..I thought it was pretty dull..basically just running out a lot of stats ..I feel anybody could have written it really with a load of Speedway Stars at hand...there was nothing in it that wasn’t known...ok but nothing special

    Interviews by Lee Ashby - David's Son

    I think these are good.. I've enjoyed most of them a lot.. The recent Jeremy Doncaster and Chris Louis one was very good... The only one I wasn't too keen on was Gary Havelock's really..... Lee says he's got Marvyn Cox lined up so that should be good.
  17. A bit late on this but I couldn't believe how quickly the book arrived It's well worth a read..I found the longtrack part the best bit as it went into quite a bit of detail on something you don't hear too much about in England. I would recommend it
