  1. Hi,

    I'm looking to sell my collection of Sunderland Speedway programmes and two Sunderland badges.

    They consist of 1964 x 8   1971 x 5  1972 x18  1973 x 10 and 1974 x 11 

    Honestly don't know the price of this collection so please PM me with offers if interested or if you need any more information, I'm only looking to sell as a whole and not individual matches against particular teams. Many Thanks 

  2. Hi, selling 10 of my speedway books, prefer to sell as job lot, I bought these all new when first published and all are in very good condition with no rips or tears. The books are as follows.

    Wheels and Deals ... Ian Thomas

    Booey.... The Eric Boocock story

    More Confessions ..... John Berry

    Wiggy ..... Simon Wigg in his own words

    The Moran brothers ... 

    A dangerous life ... Chum Taylor

    Out of the frying pan .... The story of New Cross

    Forty years on, Kings Lynn speedway ..... signed by Martin Rogers

    Michael Lee ... Back from the Brink

    Tommy Jansson ... The legend who died young 

    unsure on price, please pm me with offers if you are interested, collection prefered, I live just North of Peterborough so can meet anywhere in the area or collection from home. Alternatively I can get a price on postage.

  3. Quite possibly the case, I haven't been to the showground yet this year but just read your post about trenches and bits marked for digging all over the site which would, I assume include the cattle sheds and Arena Centre area. Health and Safety is the reason given on the press realise and many more people attend these fayres than the average crowd even for a local derby, shame for the promotion and no doubt out of their hands as Bank Holiday fixtures usually generate a nice income for the club.

  4. This East of England Showground Contractors nothing to do with The Club. Expect they need to get the work completed asap due to their own busy schedule due at this time of year. Noticed at Ulrich's meeting there were trenches and bits marked for digging up all over the site which is huge for anyone who has not been. Lost count of how many portable generators I saw throughout the Showground as I walked from the car park to the grandstand so not surprised by this at all.

    But the huge 2 day Antiques Fayre goes ahead as planned on Friday and Saturday.

  5. Apologies if this has been asked elsewhere on another thread, during the very early planning of the new stadium at Belle Vue supporters where asked if they would like to donate I think £50 for a named brick to be placed on a wall at the stadium. 2 people in know did this in memory of sadly passed supporters, paid,recieved an initial receipt but have since heard nothing. One of them asked me at the weekend about it but I have no idea, I don't know if many where ever sold so it just died a death but I said I would ask the question in case anybody knows if they have incorporated such a wall.

  6. Did anyone else notice how many times Doyle was out on the track supporting his team mates, when Lambert needed fuel, when Masters fell etc.

    I don't think I saw Bachelor once out on track helping out other Swindon riders.

    Doyle seems to have matured into a world class rider and a genuine leader. We should do whatever is necessary to get him back at Swindon next season.

    Doyley has always been this way inclined, even when questing.

  7. King actually used the engine Lambert rode in Vojens if the rumours are true. Either way, he doesn't give a toss about Panthers, so we need to get used to him missing meetings. Shame, because he is a cracking rider to watch.

    This is correct Danny did use the GTR engine used by Lambert in Vojens, he switched back to his GM for heat 15.

    The van and bikes were back in time to go to the workshop and prepared properly for last night not just a dash straight to the track.

    Mr Rathbones comment about the Ipswich pair having better resources to enable them to ride last night are a little wide of the mark.

  8. NIGEL Pearson, along with two Sky cameras, is at Wimborne Road reporter for Sky Sports News. If it goes ahead, first leg of final will be at Coventry tomorrow, second leg at Poole on Monday.


    Sky are also on standy for Monday and Wednesday next week.

    Do we take this to be that a decision has already been made as to who the second set of finalists will be IF tonight is called off?

  9. Is there anywhere where we can get infomation on speedway refs,their background in the sport,for example doing another job in speedway before they became a ref?.Their achievements in the sport of what top matches they have refed etc?

    Last nights TV ref , dressed as a bulldog as mascot of Reading and bit part mechanic there too.

  10. When he brought them out and the thread was posted on here about them I questioned then why wouldn't people just lower their spoilers, seems they have! PC just made a problem up and fixed it.


    I thought the PC hugger went between the Rear wheel and a now older style Rear mudguard to fill the void, unsure where the spoiler comes into it as this is in the Rear wheel.
