    1954 Queries

    Thanks for sorting that little lot out. Here are the rest of my queries for 1954: 18/04 California Best Pairs - Goldfinch & Mitchell tied on 16 points with Preedy & Baker - WAS THERE AN OUTRIGHT WINNER? 25/04 Brafield - WAS ANYTHING STAGED? 05/06 Aldershot Best Pairs - Result shown on Researcher file as a tie between Hockaday & Bunney and Taylor & Mason - WAS THERE AN OUTRIGHT WINNER? 27/06 California Eastbourne 60-32 - California Researcher file has just a basic entry with no result and the Eastbourne file carries nothing at all. The result was on my original sheet - CONFIRM FIXTURE & RESULT

    Regarding 18/04 Ringwood v Brafield, the result is on the Brafield Speedway Researcher file but not on the Ringwood file. Though shown as a S.A.L. match it obviously wasn't - so was it just a challenge? Regarding Rigwood v Aldershot, I have a league fixture being raced on 20/06 result 50-33. Was this actually a challenge match? I have an Aldershot v Ringwood fixture in the Metropolitan League on 24/04, result 48-36. Did the Metro League become the S.A.L.? The 17/04 Aldershot v Eastbourne is also shown as the Metro League and this now seems to be a S.A.L. fixture. The good news is the for/against points totals are now balanced across the board.

    That worksheet is actually what I'm attempting to update but it varies slightly from the Excel version I have so thanks for the heads up.

    Cheers. I hadn't thought to check the League Cup fixtures out, I had wrongly assumed it was just an unfinished competition with only 4 fixtures.

    With regards to the league cup, were the 2 semi-finals one-legged affairs with Rye House defeating Southern Rovers 58-50 on 10th June and California defeating Eastbourne 61-46 on the 17th?

    1957 Southern Area League

    I've got a point kicking in the for/against totals of Aldershot and Rye House. The results I have are: 13/07 Aldershot 51 Rye 32 14/07 Rye 52 Aldershot 29 07/09 Aldershot 60 Rye 23 08/09 Rye 48 Aldershot 35 Can someone please confirm these results?

    1957 Southern Area League

    Where are CSI: Aldershot when you need them? I forgot to mention the Colin Pratt "error" (a word I'm reluctant to use because I fully appreciate the difficulty in ascertaining the facts from back in the day). All I can add at this point is the 59-23 result tallies with the S.A.L. table on the SGB website, which will do nicely for my purposes.

    1957 Southern Area League

    Good stuff, thank you. I spent a while double checking the Researcher files last night and discovered that in the 07/09 report Dave Slater is missing from the individual scorechart. He scores 2 (0, 0, 1, 1). It didn't resolve the extra point issue of course but perhaps it could be a lead.

    Peter Craven Oxford track record.

    The Oxford files on Speedway Researcher show no track records were set in 1972. However in 1973 George Hunter is credited with a TR of 65.4 in heat 2 of the Midland Riders QR on 10/05/1973. So it appears the track was changed between the 72 & 73 seasons. Ole Olsen lowered it to 65.2 in heat 6 of the Champions' £100 Trophy on 19th July.

    As always I'm looking for help with the following: 04/04 Oxford - programme says Easter Cup Trophy won by Jack Young but I have a fixture entitled North v South with result 44-52. No mention of any event on this date in Speedway Researcher file. Can anyone shed light on this one? 26/05 Wimbledon - fixture described merely as 'Open'. It was cancelled due to the London bus strike. What was this proposed meeting, individual, pairs, etc?? 26/05 Exeter - Open Championship - was result a tie between Ronnie Genz & Dick Bradley or was there an outright winner? 10/06 Southampton - Southern Riders Championship QR - Winner: Ove Fundin CONFIRM DATE & RESULT 15/07 Southampton - World Championship British QR - Winner: Ronnie Genz CONFIRM DATE & RESULT 19/08 Southampton - World Championship British SF - Winner: Jack Geran CONFIRM DATE & RESULT

    Can someone clarify why Jan Mucha did not appear to ride in this meeting? Was he replaced by first reserve Ryszard Fabiszewski who also didn't ride?
