    Most friendly, approachable, modest riders

    Mark Frost of Oxford who was really Attila Stefani.
  3. I was at the Coventry v Hull league decider in 1979 and I think the attendance was given as 23,000. It was certainly a huge crowd and I remember having to park about a mile away from the stadium.

    Speedway ends in South Africa

    Very sad - I am fortunate enough to have seen Speedway at Walkerville but when I went in 2017 it was clear that it was struggling to survive and that Flat Track and Quads were much more viable options. Unfortunately, it is a sign of the times with Speedway pretty much worldwide as the same could be said of Canada and even some European countries much closer to home. I'm glad I went when I did as I don't anticipate be able to watch Speedway in South Africa again.

    National Supporters Club Group

    This seems to be the case although a large number of Speedway fans I know are not attached to any particular club (often because a club they once followed has long since folded) but they regularly attend a number of different tracks.

    Ice Speedway 2018/19

    I don't think there will be anything at Champex-Lac as they couldn't get enough people to take an interest in trying to run it! Not sure about Flims though!

    Anyone remember Dalle Andersen?

    Remember him well. One of the fastest riders around the Crowley track!
  8. Hopefully the Paramedic will turn up by 7:50pm Bob!
  9. Well done Eastbourne who rode very well and never looked in danger of letting Mildenhall back into contention. Good to see them eventually celebrate after heat 12 even though they had sealed the Championship one race earlier!!
  10. Judging by the size of the crowd JCF has yet to arrive with the train load of Panthers fans!

    Fixture shambles - An annual event

    You are right about both - Sunday 1 November 1998 was Coventry v Ipswich in the Craven Shield Final second leg. Oxford and Cradley also failed to complete the KO Cup Final second leg in the 80's (1986 I think). I can only recall one official November fixture after the Coventry one from 1998 and that was at King's Lynn on 1 November 2000, however in the 70's and 80's November meetings took place most seasons. The latest meeting a saw was the Nigel Wasley Memorial on 10 November 1979 at Cradley. The latest league fixture I watched was Canterbury v Crayford on 7 November 1981.
  12. He (BWD) actually informed Peterborough before signing for them that he had surgery scheduled for 27 September and they were happy for him to sign on that basis.

    Yes indeed - thank you to all of you for a great job. Really appreciate what you do.
  14. Always thought Ackroyd was a poor referee since he helped Holder to become World Champion!
