Not just us it seems. On the other thread Oxford also dry and dusty apparently. 

But I agree, more water was definitely needed and also more material on the inside! 

Been the same at Berwick this year aswell to be honest, however the racing has actually been decent in quite a few meetings. 
 

Lots of fans go up and down the country just to see good racing and that’s not happening with such little dirt on very dry tracks.

Maybe the cost of buying and transporting shale had become too much.

I went to Oxford on Monday and after heat 1 I thought, oh no! we're in for a night to forget, as there were traces of dust coming from the track... but the track staff kept on top of it all night with regular watering and it was a corker of a match with close racing and passing right up until heat 15. So it can be done

Yes that is true, no idea why the track was like it was last night, havent seen a blue groove for years. It certainly didn't help us and our riders seemed to be caught out. Edwards seems to have improved lately and made a couple of decent passes early on and the only interesting thing was the fluctuating scoreline which was worrying for most of the meeting.

There’s no denying the track last night was the worst it has been for a very long time. Though a question why they made it so slick has to be asked. The Poole riders were certainly caught out with their setups. It wasn’t dangerous. It just wasn’t conducive to good racing and there was little to blast around the boards. A shame as the crowd was decent and we now have no meeting for a month.

Keep an eye out for BSN Series and KO Cup dates...........!!

Every week showing up another Poole disaster. Red lights, starting gate, ambulance, very under prepared track. All the signs are there. Awaiting abuse from the pensioners.

Ah yes, the mythical top of the qualifying group trophy, Poole’s favourite topic, pathetic.

Actually it does mean something, if you are top of the league then you are further clear of 5th, so more likely to make the top 4.
