    British Riders' Championships

    I do sincerely hope that something can be done about this. At the moment, those lads were deserving of being called 'World Champions' but, for whatever reason, were not recognised as such. I think it would be great if this could happen. Fingers crossed for their families sake.

    I live in Sunderland and cannot make it. Very best wishes for your efforts though, I sincerely hope you can succeed in keeping Speedway in Peterborough. I have been to the Peterborough track on a number of occasions and thoroughly enjoyed, not just the racing, but the the atmosphere too. Good Luck.

    Jim Wells RIP

    You echo my thoughts on Jim and Jack, Steve. I am desparately sorry to learn of Jim's passing. I remember watching him as a new rider at reserve when he joined us and eventually became our Number One. It was great watching his progress over the years. He came over to the UK around 2006 and we had a 'do' for him, we also met up with him at Redcar to watch a Speedway match.. He was a lovely fellow and a smashing rider... He will be sadly missed by all Sunderland 'Stars' Supporters. My sincere condolences go out to Jim's family and friends. May he Rest In Peace. +

    Peterborough Speedway - petition

    Signed. Enjoyed a number of meetings over the years. I would be gutted if the EoES went the same way as Brandon and others.

    "50 Days of Speedway - Sunderland in 1964"

    This book is excellent. It really is a fascinating read. Proves my point 100% as to why we closed in 1964 - it had nothing to do with the weather or attendances - the reasons given by the Promoters. There are a lot of very shady things went on when Sunderland opened in 1964. A lot has come out in this book that I never new about. A decent social history of Sunderland too. The Author is to be congratulated on some superb research.

    Full Face Helmets - Who Was The First?

    I'm glad I have my books. I obviously can't remember off the top of my head these days. Thank you for the info.

    Full Face Helmets - Who Was The First?

    He left under a bit of a cloud. Came back to ride for Birmingham I think, memory sometimes lets me down these days..
