    I wonder why Reg Craven pulled-out? Ironically, he received fatal injuries the following night at Poole.

    Southampton 1949 15/05 Southampton - practice - winner: Welch - CONFIRM DATE, EVENT NAME & WINNER Did you mean 15/03 ? The 29/03 programme refers to a practice meeting on 17/03 so I reckon that would be the date. 29/03 Southampton Charles Knott Trophy - winner ? Oakley - Date correct, Winner Bob Oakley 13pts 10/05 Southampton North v South 36-48 - Date & result confirmed 05/07 Southampton World Championship QR - winner Fred Tuck - Date correct, Winner Fred Tuck 14pts 16/08 Southampton Inter-Track Best Pairs - winners May & Boyd - Date correct, Winners Charlie May & Jim Boyd 23pts (May 10, Boyd 13) 04/10 Southampton Leg Trailers v Foot Forward 34-50 - Date & result confirmed 11/10 Southampton Pre-War v Post-War 43-41 - Date & result confirmed

    Speedway Promotion or Lack of it.

    Just in case you didn't discover it, there were actually 2 tracks in Wigan: Wigan Warriors at Poolstock Stadium, 1947 & 1960 and Wigan Panthers at Woodhouse Lane in 1952.

    Isle of Wight First meeting

    I'm only guessing here but that track record time looks suspicious!

    TV new deal?

    No, 2011, when the change in noise was markedly noticeable.

    TV new deal?

    They removed the classic speedway roar which was an integral part of the sport for me. I gave it until the end of that season then never returned for more.

    Isle of Wight First meeting

    The first official meeting was the Island Champs on 13th May 1996 won by Martin Willis.

    Ringwood closed down mid-1955, their last home meeting was v Eastbourne on May 22nd.

    Oh, I don't doubt that, my point was that there really weren't any highlights in that appalling final.

    That can't have taken very long as I don't recall there being any.

    That would mean Kent starting at 5.30 or earlier!
  14. It's the new Godden.
  15. Poole wasn't too bad.
