    Original German tracks

    Came across a report that some time in April 1930 the Dortmund track record was broken by Herbert Drews in poor conditions to 1:38,2 and Easter Monday in Copenhagen Sprouts Elder broke Ginger Lees track record from 1:28,4 down to 1.25,2 !!!
  8. Photographers normally have decent records of that sort of thing

    Helping your club........

    A regular thing with the 2 clubs nearest to me.Asking for help painting,cutting grass or repairing things.Everything is provided as well as food and drink.Just got to have the time and it is your decision to turn up or not. Same as some conservation groups ask you to help clear up a beach or river bank etc Don’t see why anyone can get upset

    1951 SA Tour of Europe

    Surely it is not of such importance to you that you can't wait, say 30 minutes or even an hour or two for someone to answer? As it was,you got the answer pretty quick and still have to ask elsewhere....probably a pm to britmet who mentioned the site would have sufficed.But no...... Let's stop this nonsense yet again and get on with this thread

    1951 SA Tour of Europe

    The answer is on the thread you created just to ask this question Now you decide to ask again here.Then wonder why people think you are dicking around?
  13. You must have missed it,but the webmaster Brian Collins has stated he can't update the site any more for a technical reason.So as someone else said yesterday on the SA tour thread,it is 'frozen'

    Wimbledon Memories

    All I am saying John is you just post things you don’t check.This list a couple of times even after it was pointed out Clem Cort didn’t ride for Wimbledon in the Southern League.Posting a link to an article stating Wembley hosted the 1985 World Final etc,etc !!!! Why Not Check things before posting?And why post things after they have been questioned as false? So,yes.Imo shoot the messenger and quickly!!!

    Wimbledon Memories

    But you keep posting the lists even after it has previously been pointed out they are not correct The whole point of history research and postings is to control,question and correct mistakes. Not ignore and repost mistakes

    Wimbledon Memories

    Quite misleading though to state riders who made up the Wimbledon teams.Then in bold Southern League 1929...then a few riders who never rode for Wimbledon in the Southern League In 1929 !!! Plus in Corts case to list Wimbledon and Harringay and not the actual team he did ride Southern League

    Wimbledon Memories

    Not only that.I see no evidence that Forster,Ewen,Buchanan or Spencer ever rode an official meeting in the Southern League for the Dons that season.Maybe gustix can point us to those meetings?
  22. iris123

    Wimbledon Memories

    As far as I can see it makes no mention of Southern League.Cort rode a challenge match for Wimbledon and also one for Harringay.Strange that no mention is made of all the meetings he did ride in the Southern League for White City.Maybe you have taken this list out of context?

    Just One Race (or maybe two!)

    Not really that far back.Maybe 8-10 years ago Danish Final at Holsted and it was the final of the final.Think from memory it was Bjarne Pedersen,Kenneth Bjerre,Hans Andersen and of course Nicki Now Nicki was the rider I wanted to win and into the first bend it looked like he had it in the bag.Then he lost control,almost totally.He was almost at a standstill as the others left him for dead.At least as someone who wanted him to win it looked like he had no chance.Then he got going and over the next 2 laps passed Bjarne and Bjerre.Still Hans had taken advantage and was quite a way out in front and silver looked the best Nicki could hope for.But it was his home track and his main rival and Nicki just kept going and making up the metres,until on the last lap he did the unthinkable and went past Hans to win the title Just for the sheer rollercoaster of emotions of thinking he was going to win,then thinking it was all lost,then the slow felling of he is going to make something happen here....it had all a speedway race should have,for me

    Not sure where you get this from but Clem Cort neither appeared for Wimbledon nor Harringay in the Southern League as far as I know.He did though ride most of the Southern League fixtures for White City London.....
