    Swindon v Poole. Prem. 22/8/19

    I think it may be difficult for the BSF Mod to identify multiple account users. If you suspect a person is doing this it might be best to use the REPORT facility to advise your suspicion.

    Swindon v Poole. Prem. 22/8/19

    If you know for certain there are users with multiple accounts name and shame them. Some years ago I was guilty of that happening and deservedly received a substantial ban from the BSF.

    West Ham recalled. One of the many great speedway clubs that once graced the capital. https://www.freewebs.com/customhousekid/history.htm

    Speedway Promotion or Lack of it.

    There is an old saying that could apply to Buster: "...he has many faults but being wrong is not one of them...!"

    This is a real oldie - it deals with Sunderland who closed in the early 1970s. Sunderland Speedway == http://www.sunderlandspeedway.co.uk

    The forgotten forums

    I have traced this forum relating to Oxford. You need to click the Links at the top of the board to bring up its various sectors. My guess is that its been inactive for about 10 years - at least! I found it difficult to navigate - it has several drop-down Links one needs to enter. http://cheetahschat.proboards.com

    Is the old Oxford Cheetahs' forum still live? If so may we see its Link please?

    New Forest Training Track 1958-1961

    Oh dear! rain and not racing! The curse of predictive spelling and not cross checking what has been written. Now is it hamburger or amburger?

    New Forest Training Track 1958-1961

    I was working in a full-time speedway publicity capacity between 1954 and 1962. At no time in that period do I recollect anything to do with this rain venue. But I do recall the Ringwood venue and that it also had a team operating in the Southern Area League in 1954 and 1955. Among their riders were Ernie Lessiter and Mike Tams.

    These are now dormant groups that were once active in regard to speedway: London Speedways == http://londonspeedways.proboards.com Midger Car Panorama == http://midgetcarpanorama.proboards.com The Speedway World === http://subedei.proboards.com Speedway Museum Online === http://speedstox12.freeforums.net/board/1/general-discussion Crystal Palace Motorsport === http://palace-motorsport.proboards.com Times have moved on and all have been dormant for a long period although they are still able to be viewed. There must be many similar groups that have become dormant but are still possibly able to be reached for research purposes?
  11. A look back at when the sport of track circuit motorcycle racing was so very different to what is known these days. http://www.defunctspeedway.co.uk/misc.htm#John_Slider_Shuttleworth
  12. I am in regular contact with former rider Dave Gifford (New Zealand). Consequently I thought his recollections of speedway days gone by would be of interest. http://www.defunctspeedway.co.uk/Dave Gifford Page.htm

    What was being shown before the speedway to cause your complaint?

    Ron Johnson death mystery

    Doubtless BSF members will be pleased that this concludes some of my memories of 'speedway days gone by' as I recall them. http://www.defunctspeedway.co.uk/John Hyam page 4.htm
