Speedway Controversy


Life President
Dec 10, 2006
So the Lakeside Hammers (A team I don't support) were winning the crucial Championship second leg semi-final against Peterborough by a score which meant they were through, when the floodlights failed. The meeting was abandoned after two hours of trying to fix the floodlights. The done thing in this situation is for Peterborough to concede as with the scores as it stood, the Hammers could not be caught. Surely Peterborough won't object and ask for a rerun? Yep, they did. The Hammers were rightly furious and a spokesman said that Peterborough were the only team that would have done that. The rerun had to be played at Rye House, a neutral track last night 24th Oct because the floodlights were still not mended, so the Hammers lost home advantage as well. Thankfully the Hammers won the rerun. But it's left a nasty taste in the English speedway world.
