  1. Except you can't now: 010.3.1 Transfer Window No team changes will be allowed once that club has completed 75% of their League Competition fixtures. Except riders returning to the team after injury who can only replace their original replacement.
  2. Joined Eastbourne during the 2013 on a 5 point assessed average. Finished the following season on 6.02. After Eastbourne dropped out of the elite league he had a spell with Leicester in 2015. I don't think he has ridden over here since.
  3. Of the names being bandied about, I think Madsen is one of the more likely
  4. The difference is that Dan has qualified to be in Ipswich's 1 -5 so deserves to be treated the same way as any other rider in a club's main body of a team. Suppose this ruling existed in 2022 would you have supported the notion of Tom Brennan's absence covered by only an unattached rising star once he had made Belle Vue's 1 - 5
  5. Scott could have been used as a guest for Jason. Perhaps he we asked but declined as he didn't want to do four meetings in a week. 8 day rule does not apply when riding as a guest for the home #1.
  6. The ruling is a little odd. If a rising star still #7 is unavailable it has to be a guest selected from the Rising Star list excluding any rider who is already in a Premiership line-up. However if, as in the case of Dan, that rider is now in the main body of the team, RR can be used or a guest from the Rising Star list regardless as to whether he is already in a Premiership line-up. This is subject to that guest rider not having a CMA exceeding that of the rider he is in place of.
  7. Scott can be used but only as a guest#1, ie., for Jason.
  8. Doesn't appear to be any recent interest in this but it is indeed today at Ashfield and being streamed by BSN from 1.30pm. Full details: https://britishspeedway.co.uk/major-events/preview-british-u21-final-glasgow-2/

    It seems Birmingham might have applied for the wrong visa, invitational or the same one which allowed Freddie to ride in Charles Wright's Testimonial and Peter Craven Memorial at the start of this season. I am no expert on visas however.
  10. I would just add that at the time the fixture list was announced (8.12.23) neither Lampart nor Pawlicki had been signed. So does this come under the category of unforeseen?
  11. I don't know who but there will be a rider from Birmingham looking for a new job in a few days!
  12. Confirmation that Jason will not be at the Prague GP on Saturday. Max Fricke, as first reserve, takes his place: https://www.speedway-prague.cz/za-doyla-zaskoci-max-fricke/
  13. Bjarne Pedersen currently holds the record, 22+1 on 22.7.2005 riding for Poole at Arena Essex. He had 7 rides which included a golden double scoring 4 when finishing behind team mate Matej Ferjan.
  14. Not really an option as he is already riding in both Poland and Denmark.
  15. I've just printed off the complete racecard using this link https://www.speedwayservice.at/images/racecards/2024/SGP2024-02.pdf

  17. No interest in this meeting apparently which is being shown live on BSN Both teams at full strength. Sam Hagon comes in to replace Joe Thompson as rising star for Leicester. Could be a close meeting.

  22. The regulations just say this: 011.3 TEAM LINEUPS 011.3.1 Premiership League a) the top rider (by MA) must ride at #1 b) the 2nd to 5th riders (by MA) can ride in any position #2-#5. c) the Rising Star rider must ride at #7 unless they achieve an MA which permits them to be in the top 5 then the lowest MA rider must ride at #7

    Tungate's absence last night at Ipswich is being looked into by the SCB. No decision yet but could result in a 28 day ban for withholding his services. https://britishspeedway.co.uk/miscellaneous/scb-statement-rohan-tungate/

    On a positive note, Pawlicki has scheduled his return for the visit to King's Lynn on 4th April: https://www.fimspeedway.com/news/pawlicki-set-for-birmingham-bow-next-week
