  1. Again I’m not referring to the rules I am referring to the organisation of meetings and trying to explain why a provisional banger fixture list has been published but not a BriSCA one yet The meetings for bangers are not arranged centrally. The meetings for bangers are arranged by each promoter which makes it easier for Kings Lynn to publish a provisional fixture list as they are only arranging their meetings. The fact they attract drivers from all over the country is irrelevant. It is like New Zealand Superstock. They all race under a single rule book but each club arranges thei
  2. I think you misunderstood my point. Bangers do race across the entire country but not under a single organisation unlike F1’s and F2’s who race under BriSCA. Bangers are made up of smaller regional series mostly by set out by promoters. It’s much easier for TSR to announce their provisional fixture list for their banger formula as they only race at the one track.
  3. Plus bangers operate more as a regional formula so it’s easier to create a provisional list as you only have a few tracks involved. Even National bangers are not truly National, they are pretty much a Spedeworth formula with a few dates away from home, where’s F1 and F2 are truly National formula’s and require collaboration from multiple promoters.

    If they did bring it back I think it would only be able to be done as a optional extra race. I doubt today’s racing clutches could take a whole meeting of clutch starts.

    It’s been confirmed by everyone who is officially involved that the stand was built behind the fence line. The track will be as wide as it always was.

    The corners of the pitch folded in back in the previous era. A good portion of the bend is under the turf. You can faintly make out the kerb under the pitch in the below photo.

    It’s been confirmed by those involved the stand is below the fence line. The only thing affected is the loss of the second pit road and gate.
  11. If anyone has read the Stuart Smith book then I think you will know what made that worse. Dave won 3 on the trot in “that” car.
  12. I’m pretty sure there was more meetings in the 1950s. After ‘rona I am going to try and find some more information in Scunny library. The track did hold Speedway though from 1971 until 1979.
  13. If we’re going by all motorsport it has to be the record holder for a oval track. The only oval track that has held Speedway and Stockcars which still exists and has had a longer gap has to be Quibell Park in Scunthorpe (and motorsport will never return there). Non-Oval both Donington Park and the Goodwood circuit were both inactive for 32 years.
  14. As expected team GB will not be competing in the 2021 team champs. The below statement was posted on Facebook this evening: I am sure by now you all would have guessed that due to the present conditions and restrictions that for the first time in over 10 years Team GB will not be taking part in the 2021 NZ Teams event at Robertson Holden International Speedway. Palmerston North New Zealand. Disappointing as this is, we will be looking at putting all our efforts into the 2022 campaign to continue our challenge to take part and hopefully win one of the world’s toughest motorsport event
  15. The Global group. They own a fair few stations. LBC Radio x Capital (and all the spin offs) Classic Gold Heart Smooth. If you listen to any of them stations you will hear the ad.
