Re: [SKY BLUE TAT] Where are you going - where did you go? SPEEDWAY!!!
Isle of Wight Islanders 53 - 40 Kings Lynn Young Stars
Smallbrook Stadium . Adm 11 prog 2 (reissue from caped meet). Hot food and drink available. Att app 350.
At last my first Speedway report after several failed attempts at Swindon. I was on the Island for a cricket match that was abandoned and only got this in as it was a rescheduled meeting.
Found it very enjoyable with the knowledgeable local fans very willing to chat to a newbie like me. Not many close races. Partly as the track was very wet. The Islanders walked away with it after some great riding in heat 6 by Hughes and Hopwood. Cant remember many passes by KL riders. The few times they tried to fight back a home rider would pull off an overtake and knock them back.
For IOW Hughes and Warwick 11 Hopwood 9 all impressed.
Very nice girl from the taxi firm gave me a lift to Ryde thus saving me £5 and ensuring i recommend Ryde Taxis on here ! I adjourned to the King Lud for a few pints of Locale, good music and chat. Its never in the GBG prompting me to want to stick my GBG somewhere that may be painful to the IOW CAMRA branch and rely on instinct!
Great evening and a good rescue!
