the thing is Rovin Roin is that you appear to have put a lot more thought in this than the powers that be have done. and because your idea make sense it will probably never happen
Both Compton and Greenwood fell on bend 3 of the opening lap with the excluded.
Compton looks to have hurt his hand and is getting a bit of treatment before the re-run.

There is quite a sparse crowd here at the Arena Essex. But the forecasted heavy showers for here didn't materialise, just a bit of light drizzle.
come on boys!i have faith in you guys you can get a first away win!proud robin forever!#adverspeedway— @tapesup1949 25 April 2014
The Robins are looking for their first away win of the season, but it will be tough at Lakeside who have won all four of their home meets so far this term and are sitting pretty at the top of the Elite League.
Simon Gustafsson and Dan Greenwood will be looking for improved performances this evening after struggling in recent meets.
Tapes go up here at 8pm with the parade at 7.45pm
But with Batchelor away at the European GP, they will need a better performance from Pedersen than he showed for the Eagles last night.
The Robins are looking to make it two wins in two nights after their narrow 46-44 victory over Eastbourne Eagles was secured on the final heat.

Rovin Robin says
As i have previously written that a close meeting such as this is a lot more exciting,i am not going to contradict myself.
OK i am probably going to make a complete screw up of this suggestion as i am not an expert of the SCB regulations.. It seems to me that a lot of supporters are getting fed up with the so called ELITE league and although i think it is a great idea to encourage the up and coming riders. Suddenly adding two riders to your team is too much .. "One" would have been a better idea..
I believe that currently a Team’s initial Declaration must include 5 Riders whose combined MA does not exceed 32.00 points..
Well doesn't that mean that if all the riders achieve their average it still leaves 13 points for the reserves ( from the British Speedway FTDP List ). in order for a draw to occur..
My idea would be for a declared team of 8 riders , Two from the ( British
Speedway FTDP List. ) With only one actually riding and the other ( on the books ) as a stand bye to cover for injury or unavailability.
Also the team Declaration should include 6 Riders whose combined MA does not exceed 42.00 points.
By strengthening the teams it would be more HONESTLY an ELITE league team . This is probably not the right forum to discuss this but it would be interesting to hear other peoples thoughts about it.
Long live Speedway!!!
