    Re: Speedway

    Used to watch Speedway back in the day when Nelson Admirals were in the 2nd division, sadly they weren't around for long, Stock cars were more popular and ruined the track.

    Don't think that I've been to speedway since around 1970. The Wembley Lions at Wembley Stadium - anyone remember them.

    Re: Speedway

    I used to be mad keen on speedway, followed Poole all over the country, but I've lost interest the last few years with all the constant rule changes and the watering down of the top teams. Really hope GB do this tomight though, I was at Poole the night of the World Team Cup and the Hans Andersen/Scott Nicholls incident, that hurt!

    Handicap 18. Bag full of Taylor Made with a bit of Dunlop thrown in.

    Ove Fundin, Bert Harkins are about the only riders I can recollect presently...
    Though I am sure more will come to mind after a few more beers...
    Trevor Redmond was the promotor...

    Use to go to Plough Lane to see the Don's as a mate was a real fanatic. Never really got into it but as a night out and few beers it wasn't bad and if I recall not overly expensive to get in

    Re: Speedway

    Ivan Mauger. I think that is right. I've just had a flashback to my childhood and I seem to remember he was the big name back then.

    This doesn't particularly add to the thread but I felt the need to share this name from the back of my memory.
