    Just caught up with this one. Keith was the photographer during the season 1974/75 & 76 and, yes has published three books with many of his photos included. Some of his photos appeared in the track shop at Oxford during that time but I think that Mike soon took over? He drifted away from the sport and moved to Weymouth and then Poole many years ago but has become pro-active again on various facebook sites and was at Cowley last year when Dag Lovaas returned to Oxford on a short visit.

    Setting a budget for speedway 2021

    I know that I'm being very simplistic with my view but it may present an opportunity for speedway to get back to some sort of basics?

    Zenon Plech RIP

    Fabulous image...I was there. He was withdrawn form the rest of the meeting so only saw him complete one race where I think he finished second?

    Zenon Plech RIP

    That strikes a devastating chord...so sad.

    Zenon Plech RIP

    Very sad news...always an entertainer and will be sorely missed. Remember watching him for the first time at Cowley in 1973 on a hot Sunday afternoon. RIP

    Briggs, Fundin, Mauger , Crump, Rickardsson, Roll of honour.

    Yes he didn't do himself any favours by turning out for Oxford.

    Yes it's a fair distance across the road where Sandy Lane meets the Watlington Road.

    Stadium Design

    I seem to remember reading that the 'new' Wembley stadium was re-positioned as previuosly half the pitch was often in shadow causing problems on occasions?

    Weston Speedway

    I've checked my copy of "Homes of British Speedway" and unfortunately can only find a reference to the early seventies.

    Why is Speedway not recognised?

    Unfortunately I have to agree...thankfully I witnessed the last "Golden Era" and have many memories to look back on.

    Corona virus

    All seems very ambiguous to me.

    Stadium Design

    I remember tha late Peter Seaton once suggesting that the pits should be on the centre green but I'm not sure how practical that would be?

    What are they doing now?

    I'm sure you are correct...I recall an article in "Backtrack" some years ago where he had stables with some horses.

    Stadium Design

    I recall that White City moved the pits from within the stand structure unseen to the third and fourth bend which made better sense all round.

    Last ever Hyde Road meeting

    A very underated rider in my opinion. I think (withiut checking) that 1979 was his best year and I'm sure he qualified for the Commonwealth Final that year?
