  1. Why not? No Aussie with any sense would come here except for a bit of tourism or temporary work, such as riding a speedway bike.
  2. On this morning's news, the talks were said to be going well. The rest of your comments is a non-sequitur: while the fuss over the Romanians was justified, I can't see that 25 million Aussies will want to come here. They are better off at home, except for a season's speedway.
  3. There is some talk now about closer ties with Australia now that we are out of the EU, so no more need for visas for Aussies coming here, and for Brits going there.

    MSDL 2021

    All of which is beside the point. Why were the 'ghost teams' a 'thorn in the side' of the BSPA? The result of this decision is to sharply reduce the opportunities for riders to develop into team riders proper. In any case, all MDL teams - including those theoretically attached to league teams - were run by 'enthusiasts' in my experience.

    'Amateur' means that they don't get paid - but pay to enter instead.

    Driving After Dark

    I do bear this in mind, and always stop for a break half way along a journey. As for accidents: most are caused by young men under 25!

    Driving After Dark

    Actually, all this business is just some busybodies (who, of course, know what is best for the lower orders) being silly as usual. I am 76, and will be taking my caravan to away matches, Redcar, Plymouth and Poole, Berwick and Newcastle and so on. I have always had good night vision and still have.
  8. It is true of a surprising number on this forum, but not all of us.

    Is that good or bad, then?
  10. Depends on whether Godfrey or Mason offer him the most cash!

    Non sequitur ... I am not sure what you are argueing? It doesn't answer my point.

    Confirmed Signings for 2021

    You've been watching 'Once A Jolly Swagman' again! This hasn't happened for very many years. Nowadays, the standard is so high that except for a minute number of hyper-talented riders, nearly all have to go through the ladder of training sessions/amateur racing/MDL/NL to reach Championship standard.

    It's what happened. No-one could have forseen that Garrity would go insane and get locked up?
