Lockdown day whatever…whatever day this is, whatever week this is and whatever time it may be, all I know is that I’m absolutely fed up with all this COVID carry on.
However there is some positives, or rather some negatives which we can be positive about.
With the Polish Ekstraliga set to get underway in the not too distant future, all riders and officials from the clubs were tested for Coronavirus and every test came back negative.
Good news I’m sure you’ll agree which means that racing can commence as scheduled, albeit behind closed doors.
The thought of speedway behind closed doors does very little for me though, as much as it is about the noise from the bikes, it is all about the smells, the gasps from the crowd, the cheering and the booing.
Like any sport it is nothing without atmosphere.
However if it is the difference between seeing some live racing and not, I guess we will have to take what we can get.
Meanwhile in Britain we remain in the unknown category in terms of when we will see some racing. The BSPA remain optimistic in the hope we will see some racing in 2020, but at the moment we will have to sit tight.
This of course means that for now we will all have to make do with more “Virtual Meetings” in order to pass the time. Earlier this week I finished off the first one of these and Adrian Rymel ended up taking the win thanks to the votes of those following the JB Speedway Media page.
I do have another individual meeting ready to go, but I would personally like to do a team meeting in the not too distant. If anyone has any suggestions as to what format to go with please let me know.
You may want to see a team of new take on a team of old, or whether you wanna see two clubs legends select battle it out the possibilities are endless.
If this sounds like something you might be interested in just keep an eye on Facebook.com/JBSpeedwaymedia where these can be found.
I know it is something wholly insignificant but if it gets people talking and interacting at a time like this then I’m all for it.
It breaks up the monotony and gives us a break from the rather bleak reality in which we find ourselves in at the moment.
Until such times as tracks are allowed to operate again, the virtual world will simply have to do!
Stay safe everyone.
Of course if you wish to agree, or disagree with the Mythman, have an idea for a feature, or you simply want to chew the fat over all things speedway, you can email me email@example.com or get in touch via the JB Speedway Media Facebook page. If your compliments, or indeed gripes can be contained to limited characters, you can send me a tweet @Mythman666.
Until next time…and there will be a next time.
Right I’ll hae’tae gan
