Swindon Robins take stance over poor track

Swindon Robins are working to improve the condition of their track in a bid to turn their season around.

The Robins, who are bottom of the Elite League with just five wins all season, are now on a three-week break from racing because of the World Cup.

"If I try out anymore excuses any credibility I've got left with the fans is going to be shot to pieces," co-owner Gary Patchett told BBC Wiltshire.

"There is no excuse for the track being in that sort of condition."

Patchett added: "It was bumpy on the first bend... it probably needs to be ripped up. It's far from ideal and something that needs to be sorted out."

Swindon do not have an Elite League meeting until 21 July when they face Eastbourne at home and Patchett has warned that there could be changes made to the team if their form does not improve.

"The track was far from ideal but it's the same for both teams," he said.

"We've got to consider our options as far as places in the team are concerned. I wouldn't rule anybody in or anybody out."
