nothing those landlords do would ever surprise me but what on earth is there angle(and they will have one) in making life so difficult for the speedway???

They want the stadium demolished and to be joint developers with the town for all the new flats that the council (BCP) want to build on the site. 
They are using their long lease of the site as leverage

No club will be able to sustain this if it continues after 21st. These draconian measures insisted on by the Stadium landlords, not the Council or the club, are really putting the pressure on!!

 

All absolutely fine at Plymouth last night!

Other than people social distancing on the terraces and wearing masks while moving around, you would never know there was a pandemic. No problem at the food outlet either!

Good atmosphere, interesting racing. Couple of nasty crashes for both Etheridge and NBJ, who twice went under the air fence. Hope they are both ok for tonight. 

At Poole the riders have times to go into the pits, come back out, let others go in, then have to come back out again!

Be interesting to see how this scenario works out. Way over the top. 

Hoping for a Poole win of course.

Plymouth nor any other club (except Swindon) have to deal with Gaming International!!

Matt won't be able to sustain big financial losses for long under these regulations. GI seem happy to let the stadium close - they still get substantial income from the car/lorry park - force the speedway to close and then persuade the Council that they can't make it pay!!

unless you get more activity within the stadium its self of course it will close nobody in there right might  would want to spend money on it at this moment in time . so it then will end up a housing development . until the pandemic and lockdown is over .we dont know what gaming international have in mind

The Council won't take much persuading

Having just watched the sports bit of BBC South Today at Poole Stadium, it is very cloudy/overcast!! Whilst it is really sunny 15 miles away!

Not particularly.  No commentary (which was promised) and no graphics so we have no idea who's racing!!  You can't hear a word Nigel is saying either.  Just the basic racing at the moment.  Not even showing the score board.

Not a patch on the feed from Glasgow last Friday unfortunately.

EDIT: Commentary all of a sudden kicked in at the end of heat 4!

Agreed. You can hear some fans talking and a few swear words. I have no idea who is in the rider replacement rides
