    I know there are many and varied good reasons for those who don't ride (injured, no $, need a break, stayed in the UK etc) but a few that aren't there got me wondering ... Poole (injured or retired ?) Davies, Kozza, Kurtz x 2, Gathercole (he seems to have slipped off the radar lately), Proctor (his shoulder injury was bad I know), Branford, & Summers. Maybe Douglas & Koppe but its probably too far with not enough $ for them. Did wonder if Kyle Newman might nominate but it could be a case of five times bitten, twice shy for him.

    There might be many reasons for riders not riding as stated above ! but its come to my notice that Darcy Ward's entered for the Troy Bayliss meeting at the old bar at Taree . As ive stated , the yanks and pommies see more of Darcy the our aussie fans ? guess , we will have to wait for the GP's and Elite League next season ! that's if your got pay-tv

    Newman's not allowed to nominate - only Aust. licence holders are acceptable. This was also the case a few years a few years ago when there was an injury in the first round at Kurri. NO Australian rider could be found to do the remaining rounds to replaced the injured rider. Newman was asked. He immediately agreed to drive from Townsville to Adelaide at very short notice and copped shit from some of the Aussie riders for his trouble. I notice that two of the most vocal aren't bothering to ride themselves this year.

    I don't believe that only Aussie licence hoers can nominate.
    Gathercole not back
    Proctor injured
    Both Kurtz chose not to ride
    same Banford, Watt, Darcy.
    Summers not back

    2. JURISDICTION
    2.1 The above mentioned meeting has been authorised by MA which has issued the Motorcycling Australia Permit Numbers MA1312,
    MA1313 and MA1314 and open to holders of current Motorcycling Australia Senior National licences.

    The extract above is from the Aust Championship Supp Regs. There is no provision for holders of licences from other federations to enter. This is why both Josh Auty's and Kyle Newman's nominations were binned a couple of years ago.

    Easy, these are the sup regs.... once approved, they can be changed by the Referee off the meeting.

    But if the riders aren't there because their nomination wasn't accepted in the first place by the Speedway Commissioners, then it's to no avail.

    We can't have little Johnny having too much competition! As it stands Sidecars are our premier motocycle class.., solos are lucky that a few.. Very few tracks still take them as a searous crowd puller...

    Why is it that sidecars can have riders from USA, England, New Zealand etc in a championship meeting but Solo's can't ..

    It's good to see Darcy Ward's name on the rider list for the 4 team tournament at North Brisbane. A bit of support for QLD fans. He also rode in the North Brisbane Cup last weekend on a 450 dirt bike - and did quite well after a couple of spills.

    Looking through the list of riders at the Jason Crump Cup at Kurri Speedway on Boxing night , the list is a fantastic list but, the "icing on on the top would have been Darcy Ward's name " in honour of our greatest ever rider !

    Where did you see the list? I couldn't find it on Kurri's website.

  17. Gavin

    Gavin Registered

    Yes, thanks. Someone cut and pasted the list from Facebook (which I don't do) and emailed it to me.

    Anyone know who qualified at Kurri last night? Nothing on their website as of 12.30pm. No results of their previous meeting either.

    Oops. It's not on until tonight! Too much Bundy while watching the wickets fall in the cricket.

    Sorry Kurri!!!
