    Celebration of Speedway 2020

    It took me a few photos before I recognised Egon Muller!

    Freddie Lindgren music video

    I love this song sung by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, but I'm afraid Freddie needn't have bothered..And get a decent haircut!

    Ipswich 2020

    I think it's great that Crump is back. Ok, he and Nicki may not be the riders they were but these guys have an aura about them which no other rider here - with the possible exception of Doyle - has. Their signings will surely improve crowd levels at Ipswich and Sheffield, and hopefully at away tracks when they visit..I'll certainly be paying a visit to both tracks this year for the first time in yonks.

    Norden Stadium

    Sounds like what Len Silver did with Zenon Plech. Going back to Norden I recall Bruce wearing a Kenny Carter rosette!

    Norden Stadium

    I remember the TV footage of Carter and Sanders muttering to each other about how Muller can be so good. It was like they'd never heard of him before!
  6. Happy retirement to a speedway legend.

    Kelly Moran

    I was never a fan of the Americans, other than Kelly and Shawn who you couldn't help liking, even though Kelly referred to Hackney as 'the armpit of the speedway world.' To be fair to him though, the Yanks didn't have much luck at Waterden Rd. There is no denying though that Bruce Penhall had it all..Quick starter, fast machinery, brilliant from the back and charisma in abundance. Obviously he blotted his copy book at the Overseas Final, but I reckon that would have been forgotten in time if he'd carried on riding into his thirties. Penhall is the only rider who could have stopped the Gundersen/Nielsen steamroller imo.

    Danny Ayres RIP

    I only saw Danny Ayres ride once, at last years British Final, and for me, his race with Bomber was the highlight of the evening. Even though he must've been gutted to lose the race he still gave a great interview after, full of passion and great humour, and I remember thinking what a breath of fresh air this guy is, in a sport sadly lacking real entertainers these days. Such a shame to go so young RIP

    I remember Roman having a punch up with Sean Wilson at Sheffield one night. A real character. RIP

    Wimbledon Second Halfers And Number Sevens.?

    I remember seeing Dennis Sigalos having his first rides in Britain in a second half at Plough Lane, at the end of 78 or beginning of 79. Like most of the American newcomers of that time, you could tell he was going to be good.
  11. That used to be called the consolation final, wasn't it?
  12. Exactly. It's like when they had those eliminator races, which were fine for an end-of-season individual meeting such as the Champions Chase we had at Hackney in the 70's, but not for a world championship when we had riders settling for a 'safe second' just to progress through to the next round..Dear old Andy Smith was on his way home by the end of heat 5. His mechanic used to keep the van engine running!
  13. They finally get the scoring system right after years of tinkering and then go and balls it up again.
  14. Roland & Stefan Danno Tim & Mads Korneliussen
  15. Jack & Cordy Milne for the yanks (one for the oldies!)
