    Rest of the GP series

    You didn’t enjoy the Pairs? I’d never have guessed!

    Belle Vue v Poole Monday 1/7/19 BT Sports

    Because the press office hadn’t been informed of the change.
  3. The meeting was previewed by the BSPA press office this morning but was taken off the website following the postponement. We had received press releases from both clubs. Glasgow had declared Anders Rowe guesting at reserve; Scunthorpe had Cameron Heeps for Jake Allen, and Jack Smith at reserve.

    Speedway Star in the winter

    But it does clearly state why the match was abandoned, at the bottom of page 11.

    Coventry Bees Nl ?

    Sorry Simon but you aren’t having a debate with any of my “cohorts” here.

    Coventry Bees Nl ?

    No, I’m not remotely important in the grand scheme of things. And I’d rather be deluded than many of the characteristics exhibited by the postings under both your current and former aliases.

    Thanks for that, Simon. Incidentally I’ve been at all but two of the “home” meetings this season. Happy to discuss things personally with you any time. You’ll find me around plenty of tracks.

    Again this is totally untrue. The Campain Group have no moles on the Forum. We are happy to post under our own names. Unlike yourself.

    Simply untrue. Very happy to meet you in person and explain it, but of course that would mean you revealing your identity.

    You’ll be pleased to know that eKantor is an affiliated company... check their website to find out more! Seriously, great effort by everyone there to get the track fit, and to run successfully to such a tight schedule.

    Awaiting confirmation at this stage regarding live coverage Rob - we will still be out at the track, having rescheduled flights back for Monday.

    Coventry Bees Nl ?

    The campaign group has no allegiance to anyone, and any evidence of “all the trouble the group has caused” would be welcomed. If I in any way felt that what was being done was not being done in a professional or respectful way I wouldn’t be putting my name to it as one of those involved - especially as I am quite openly involved in various ways across the sport. You’re welcome to come to a campaign group meeting, you might learn something - but I guess then we might also learn your identity, which presumably you don’t want to happen.

    Coventry V Lakeside 26th August

    I wrote the preview, the word "unavoidable" used in conjunction with the fact that SEC meetings took place on the same day as Coventry's away matches at Lakeside and Leicester hence he could not be in two places at once. Whereas KK skipped practice on two occasions in order to ride in Friday night home meetings. Naturally I'm an SEC fan, it may not be the GP but I'm sure it's well worth winning.

    The 2016 Speedway Best Pairs Cup

    MANY apologies for that. Actually saw the very end of the pit scene but from my own view it wasn't 100 per cent clear that it was the end of a disagreement, in which case it wasn't right to talk about possible discontent. Sadly with a TV screen not ideally positioned and several other things to monitor at the same time, it's impossible to get every detail. General consensus afterwards was that NKI should have ridden - and I stated I would have done that - but essentially the decision was justified until Vaculik's engine failure. Hope everyone enjoyed the meeting. The semi was as good a Pairs race as you'll get.
  15. Which is because the referee on the 9th July inadvertently used the wrong averages, whilst the referee on the 2nd July used the correct ones, even if the incorrect ones had been printed in the programme. The scorecards on the BSPA website are posted by the BSPA Press Office exactly as they are submitted by the SCB Referee for each meeting.
  16. The BSPA didn't change anything. The BSPA Press Office posted the official scorecard compiled by the SCB Referee at the meeting onto the BSPA website.

    Birmingham 2014

    Sorry but that (post 329) is factually incorrect. Birmingham are not, and never have been, forced to use AP Media. Nobody is forced to use anyone, although naturally questions are asked if one particular website puts the entire BSPA network, whose server administrator is not AP Media, at risk - especially if other clubs raise concerns over the issue. I have a professional working relationship with Andy Povey - can't speak for the others you've quoted but the best way to work in this game is professionalism first, pals second. Even better if you can achieve both together!

    Millard V Pearson

    For anyone interested, Nigel Pearson is part of Sky's coverage of the World Darts Championship from Purfleet today. He has a match later this evening, scheduled to start around 10pm, which will see him share the mic. with speedway commentating legend Dave Lanning, so we'll see how well they work together!
