Quick question for you Norman... If anyone knows it will be you. What is the exact spot on the map where the first meeting took place?
Reason I ask is that a few years ago, I took part in a cross country event around Epping Forest (Orion 15 - you get a glass of champagne at the finish!). I only became aware afterwards that it was either at the same - or very close to - the site of the first ever speedway meeting. Have I "raced" on the same hallowed turf?
Read in this weeks star that Connnor Bailey has been the victim of online abuse , the item does not directly say the reason behind this abuse just jealousy probably .
The lad seems to have the maturity to not let it affect him too much.
Brst of luck to him next season .
