    TV new deal?

    Eurosport has been deemed good enough for snooker - that’s the sport overseen by Barry Hearn, often mentioned as the desired saviour of speedway

    Bruce Semmens 1950s

    I’m sure you know who Maurice Jones was. His comment would not have come as a team supporter, which your post above suggests.

    Grand Prix changes

    Great idea - the winner being the World Champion Run a GP series as well, if you must, the winner being the GP Champion

    I am quoting someone else’s comment to me

    Bruce Semmens 1950s

    The late Maurice Jones told me that Semmens was the dirtiest rider of all

    TV new deal?

    So have I - live speedway only keeps spectators away
  8. I used to subscribe to Backtrack; I have always subscribed to Classic, and Vintage before that I’m afraid funds no longer allow both, and I prefer the older magazine I was hoping to purchase this edition, with postage costs, as a one-off
  9. Can one purchase it online? I can only see subscriptions

    Steve Shoveller - do you wonder what fans of Coventry, Lakeside, Oxford, Wimbledon, Crawley Heath, etc etc etc think when they read that you’d turn your back on your local track even though it would still be operating - the chance to watch regular (almost!) live speedway - when so many others have had it taken away from them You really are the pits - or should that be the back straight bog?

    Split Waterman RIP

    As a youngster I never had the opportunity to go to speedway, but I can remember the name Split Waterman being probably the first I ever knew of a speedway rider
