Re: [footiemug] Where are you going - where did you go? SPEEDWAY!!!
Somerset 55-35 Scunthorpe, att 700 ish (guess).
Admission 15:00, programme 2:00, 2014 badge 4:50.
On way home from weeks holiday in Devon/Dorset, my 3rd visit here, first since Prem League Pairs in 2010. Good, if rather, eventually one sided meeting, where the away team didn't really turn up, Josh Auty (No 1) and David Howe hardly bothering the scorers, so in essence Scunthorpe were a one man team, Klindt only scoring well.
Somerset shared the points around the team, with Olly Allen producing some very hard, almost dirty riding.
An enjoyable evening, and met up, unexpectedly with Reading Racers supporting friends (and family), John/Claire (Didcot) and Dan, Dan now living near Cullumpton.
IMO racing always pretty good at Highbridge.
PS: I can recommened the 'Crossways Inn'/West Huntspill, Somerset local pub of the year 2013, an excellent range of ales, good good, from 6pm. And double/ensuite with king size bed was 70 quid for the night, it's 2.5 miles from the track, so doable by cab if you dont drive.
