buying a car private or dealer?”

Nicolai Klindt

“thanks for the help, i’ll try to look at both options. just mad how the same car can be half price at private than at dealer”


Stein Waalen^

“For many years now I have been able to watch speedway on Sky from my
armchair. Once again I must say that I have only watched a handful of
meetings. To be fair, I haven`t seen many Swedish League meetings either. In
my view the product is getting worse every year, racing is usually
processional and boring and the bikes are still too fast. And next year could be even worse when only the richest riders can afford the titanium in the engines.”
