    Rob Godfrey interview in Speedway Star

    There wouldn't be this problem if the staging promotion paid both teams, at standard rates, a maximum of 105 points per league match Would be a help in budgetting, knowing virtually exactly what outgoings would be in terms of rider payments

    I presume you meant "morale" rather than "morals" !!! Or maybe not ???

    Moderators: are you there?

    One of your interests is "arguing" Surely the threads to which you refer are meat and drink to you

    Miloslav Verner RIP

    Sad to read of his passing - loved watching the Czech riders of the late 60s/early 70s Remember travelling to Rochdale and Ipswich for test matches - great entertainment

    I might take your ramblings slightly more seriously if you actually spelt Tai's surname correctly just for once! I still don't follow your argument about a group of people in a non-Speedway country not recognising that sport's world champion (Woffinden)

    Ah! Spain. A real speedway hotbed - really surprising that no senors recognised Woffinden

    Pawel Waloszek

    I was there in 1970 with Ray Glover's party, and can confirm that that achievement by Ivan, in the face of everything the Poles threw into trying to get their man to win, just cannot be overstated or underestimated - it really was an amazing victory behind the Iron Curtain. Special mention to Trevor Hedge as I recall it, taking a ride late in the meeting when clearly not fit so to do, in order that a Polish reserve did not take his place who might have had a say in the outcome. Anyone else on here with similar memories of the day? Sad to hear of the passing of Pawel.

    The attraction in those days was the racing - the spectacle of speedway - and a challenge match was no different from a league match, it was a night at the speedway It wasn't about winning at all costs - that didn't seem to matter anything like it does today - yes, happiness was 40-38, but results weren't the be all and end all There were regional fixtures - eg Midland League, Midland Riders Championship - and as said over 30 meetings in a season if it rained a bit, the sawdust went down and the riders donned overalls over their leathers, so there seemed to be less rain offs

    Your ideas haven't worked for Glasgow Tigers by the sound of it
