    Peterborough v Wolves 14/6

    He explained his reason on the TV. Didn’t want to concede 2 5-1’s and let Wolves have a point. Not agreeing with it but that was the justification.

    Cracking meeting and some superb racing. As a neutral I’d be happy to just watch meetings from Peterborough and Belle Vue. The other PL tracks tend to offer a much poorer TV experience.

    Think they made a mistake choosing 1 and 3 in Heat 15 too. But I’m not complaining.

    Redcar v Glasgow 13th June

    Well said. I enjoyed Fridays meeting and the teams served up some great racing in both matches. Both excellent adverts for the sport.

    Redcar v Glasgow 13th June

    Well didn’t see that coming before Heat 14 but credit to Anders, James, Jake and Charles for riding their backsides off in the last 2 heats to give the Bears an unexpected victory. I thought the Bears would all have to ride at their best and everything go their way for them to win today. They were still inconsistent and Sarj’s bike problems in Heat 2 when clear and Jake falling off when in the points meant we dropped a few but they came good when they needed too. For the Tigers,Cook and Ullie were the pick. Ricky started very well but faded and we only got glimpses of the reserves talents. Sedgmen was the weak link on a track that he’s ridden a lot and I was very surprised he was in Heat 14. Some cracking races, Allen was great and Charles Wright is just a joy to watch. Becoming my favourite Teesside/Boro/Redcar rider of all time which tells you a lot about him. Glasgow are still the strongest team in the league and played their full part in a great match but it was an excellent advert for speedway today at a time when the sport badly needs good things to happen. Great to see so many Tigers fans in attendance, obviously disappointed but added much to the atmosphere. On a less happy note, sad to read Jitendra’s comments in the programme about becoming disillusioned with the people running the sport and saying he is giving up his role as promoter at the end of the season. Redcar and the sport of speedway can Ill afford to lose people who act in the professional and dignified way that he has run the club since taking over. Other clubs should take note and I hope he reconsiders as he would be a massive loss.

    That was Flints average I calculated. Poor Sam will only be in the 8’s now...

    Don’t think guests is the issue, it’s the fact, in this case that the riders are deemed equal due to the rising star status. Its within the rules, just that it’s one of those occasions where it doesn’t seem to work.

    Redcar v Glasgow 13th June

    I think he’s averaging about 7.3 ish according to my calculations (what else is there to do on the hottest day of the year)

    Yup, two form reserves in the League. Flint won Heat 1 when he guested for us beating Wright and Chris Harris and has been in double figures most meetings this season. Jack is a decent enough rider but I think we all know that all 3* riders are not the same. A difficult match made much harder.

    Redcar v Glasgow 13th June

    Well that’s a sledgehammer to a peanut. We had Flint guesting to replace one of our top 5 and he was excellent. Things definitely going the Tigers way this year and this boosts an already strong team. Most teams struggle when they lose a rider, Tigers seem to have been boosted. When things are going for you, they’re really going for you. You should be looking for 4 points with that team today. (Anyone know what Flint is averaging this season?)

    Redcar v Glasgow 13th June

    No guesses on who is guest guesting?

    Redcar v Glasgow 13th June

    Missed that (was following updates on another meeting) Plan B?
  13. The form team of the league arrive at MPA today on the back of their convincing win over the Bears on Friday at home. A very solid team and boosted by Drew Kemp replacing Jack Smith which definitely makes them stronger in my opinion. The Tigers top 6 have all ridden Redcar well in the past and will be confident of a win. Bears third meeting in three days (fourth in four for half of the team) and that might take its toll on men and machinery. Hopefully boosted by the away win at Berwick last night but will need all of the Bears to ride well if they are to get anything from this meeting. Hottest day of the year and an afternoon start, let’s hope the track is as well prepared as the Brummies match and it should be a cracker.
  14. Happy with the win from a Bears point of view. Wright back to his best, Allen very good and special mention for Jordan Jenkins who had really impressed me so far this year. To win away with only 4 from R/R and a few of the riders not performing at their best is good going. If we can get a fully fit team and then all firing on the same day this is a good team.
  15. Hard to predict how well the Bears will do, have been pretty inconsistent this year so far. R/R not really working and Berwick are a different team at home. Hope, rather than expectation, from a Bears perspective
