    Best ever Spanish rider

    ...but Marshall Pugh was NOT Spanish. As previously mentioned in this thread, his parents were British.

    Scottie Michie - Man Of Mystery 1930s

    There are several excellent references to Scott Michie in other BSF threads in regard to pioneer riders but this Link provides IMO a more comprehensive version of his speedway racing career: http://www.national-speedway-museum.co.uk/scottmichie.html

    John Mills

    I have just received a PM from dawnyc requesting more information - if known - in regard to John Mills. The best I could offer her was the Link to this thread, but further comments in regard to John Mills, if made in this thread, will I am sure be appreciated by Dawn.

    World Speedway Riders' Association

    Nothing sinister TWK! Some of the information on the present WSRA website is being transferred to the SPEEDWAY MUSEUM ONLINE website. Then, as Bert Harkins has already commented, a new WSRA website should be online early in the New Year. This, I understand, will carry more information in regard to WSRA happenings rather than also carrying items of general interest as the present - now taken down website - has previously done.

    The first Pole to race in Britain

    Here's a flashback to New Cross in 1959: Mike Polukard and Florian Kapala in the Rangers' colours. And many thanks indeed for the update chunky.

    The first Pole to race in Britain

    I have memories of Marian Kaiser winning an international meeting at Oldenburg, Germany, in 1956. The two English starters were Tommy Sweetman and George Bason. Tommy finished among the top scorers but George was handicapped throughout the meeting by a wrist injury, sustained earlier in the day at the compulsory practice.
