    Swindon 2019

    Young Dane and former Somerset rider Jonas Jeppesen has been in decent form of late. Won the u-21 semi that Robert Lambert was in recently.

    Football 2018-19

    Although they’ve had a poor run lately, it smacks of yet another club losing perspective of where it’s at. What do they expect? they are currently the 17th best team in the country! Not so long ago they scraped out of leaving the football league altogether!! Delusion of grandeur!!

    Don’t disagree that neither injury warranted the ball being kicked out, but once Villa had stopped a promising attack for it, Leeds had to reciprocate
  4. Whilst it's easy to.point at Lampart and the reserves, Doyle not winning a race all night is equally as significant.

    Darcy in Twitter rant

    Fantastic speedway rider but an utterly dreadful human being. Way too much ego and opinion without even an average intellect with which to deliver it Traits which are sadly common in many modern day riders and promoters alike.

    Not too bothered about reports going, but please consolidate the stories and match scores into sections for each league. The current layout is all over the show...

    Not sure the work on the track changes the new stadium position one iota. Internal work within the existing stadium doesn't prove Gaming International's commitment to build anything.

    Karl Maier Back On A Bike

    Swindon signed him in 1983 but he had a car accident before joining and never rode. Given his record at Leicester and Hackney, he would have fitted well into our team that season!!

    Forgotten Europeans...

    Bit of a cheat really as he rode for Sheffield in 1993, so not in the period mentioned initially. He was pretty pants though... I always had a soft spot for Eastbourne in their early BL days as they had a conveyer-belt of untried foreigners in that period.

    Forgotten Europeans...

    The less than adequate foreign riders were one of my favourite parts of the sport back then. The onset of the Internet etc has sadly taken that mystique away. A few beauts to be going on with are: Hans Albert Klinge Flemming Rasmussen Trond Skretting Allan Fog Lennart Bengtsson Henk Steman Helge Langli Eddie Davidsson Piet Seur Patrice Blondy Stefan Deser Peo Gudmundsson Lars Eriksson Peter Wurterle Max Schollhorn Jurgen Hehlert Stein Roar Pedersen

    Would that have been in 1986? http://wwosbackup.proboards.com/thread/10705/17th-1986 That was a Sunday meeting...
  17. It encapsulated so much that is wrong with British Speedway promotion. He is so far out of kilter with the the majority of issues and many of his comments were simply insular and far removed from the perspective of the sport as a whole. Based on that article, the tunnel is well and truly bricked up with not a glimmer of light to be seen!

    I think I'm right in saying Jensen's only point came from a Richard Hellsen engine failure. Christophe Cayre of Isle Of Wight takes that accolade for me I think.

    I think Claes Jensen of Poole has the record nailed for beating fewest riders, Steve. Raba was actually leading heat 8 by some distance at Bristol, before inexplicably falling off all on his own.... And I reckon he "beat" two - we can't underplay his contribution!

    Raba's Swindon record is: 3 Challenge Matches: 1+1 from 4 home v Reading 1+1 from 4 at Bristol 1 from 3 home v Bristol 5 League Matches: 0 from 3 at King's Lynn 0 from 2 at Wolves 0 from 1 home v Leicester 0 from 2 at Ipswich 0 from 3 at Poole

    Reading and Bristol were Challenge Matches. His only home league meeting was against Leicester and he scored 0 from 1 ride. His league record was: 5-11-0-0-0.00

    He did have a shocker in his only meeting for Swindon against Eastbourne. Martin Yeates wasn't particularly polite about him when he got dropped. Two sides to every story I guess....

    Not sure exactly, but he only had one ride at home in his 5 official matches. Went on to be one of Kolejarz Opole's greatest ever riders and finished 2nd iin a Polish Championship as well as his WTC Final appearance. Could have done ok for us, given time.

    Frank Richt kicked right off at me about that!
