Re: [Chapeltom] Where are you going - where did you go? SPEEDWAY!!! or Reply Privately

Used to be a good, popular sport, Tom, but in Britain it's dying on its arse. In 2006, the Guardian's Frank Keating referred to speedway as "the sport of the 500s - 500 people watching 500cc engines", adding that it "remains a specialist passion in around 30 of Britain's suburbs". The utter farce of the ELRC postponement at Coventry last weekend - 30 minutes before tapes-up - is typical of speedway's present day amateurishness, and one reason so many hitherto enthusiastic fans (including me) have walked away from it. Still goes down well in places like Workington, though, where there's little else in the way of entertainment.
