    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    But do you think Nielsen with his speedway brain could of rode percentage speedway with Hans you rarely ever got a duck egg from him and his strength was his consistency.

    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    Autrey had mega problems with the Authorities hence him missing out badly in 1979.The USA final also had the likes of Bast and other homebased riders who were very very good on there home patch.The USA and Australasian final's were renowned for being tough one's and some riders fancied fell out at a early stage.

    He could of won 6/8 titles and that would not be stretching it Steve.He could of rode percentage speedway against Erik and win over a longer distance.

    How would Nielsen, Mauger, Fundin, Briggs , Olsen, Michanek, Penhall, Collins, Lee ( at there peak have fared???) my hunch is that they would of all loved and preferred the GP format.

    Peter Craven is a rider that i never see ride but for his untimely death he would of certainly won more titles also he was in a real tough era to.Tai is a rider i never really liked but he has won me over over the years and deserves every accolade he recieves.As you said everyone rode against different opposition so it is difficult to make a choice.All i would say is Lee/ Collins at there best are in the same bracket as Tai and Craven certainly is.

    The USA final was always a tough meeting ask the likes of Bobby Schwartz who suffered as badly as most over the years.Tai i like and he will probably go on and win more titles but for me the GP series is a different discipline to the old one off finals.My opinion is Ivan Mauger winning his six titles was harder than Tony Rickardsson winning his just an opinion though.

    New Cross.

    New Cross i wondered what sort of track was it? i know it was small but was it fast or technical.?Crayford is the smallest track i have been to and being a big Briggo fan i have always wondered how he got around New Cross so well even though it was not one of his better tracks.

    Just One Race (or maybe two!)

    Same as you Iris i never saw Craven or Knutsson either but not to worry eh.Some of those i named i saw alot of so a huge bias is there you tend to do that without realising.Ashby a prime example apart from Norden 1975 wtc and winning the superama he never showed his true worth his World class record in all honesty was modest he was better than that.

    The era was certainly a special one no doubt about that and all those you named deserve to be mentioned.Wilson for me is in a group of riders who were alot better than there bare results show Adams, E.Boocock, Ashby,Sigalos,Autrey, P.Crump are other examples.

    Just One Race (or maybe two!)

    There are at least 5 there who you named, who were not anywhere near Wilson's level Valentine a very strange choice of course he was very talented.

    People sometimes forget just how good Ray Wilson was i would say from 1967/73 he was in the top 10 /15 riders in the world.His record generally does not show that but i believe he was.Boocock/2 / Betts Wilson, Simmons,Collins, Jessup, Ashby,Louis, (ect) what a generation that was.

    Kings Lynn 2019

    Riss and Jorgensen i really like both great value, I think Andersen at reserve might improve??? Without Puk though is such a blow with him top four material easily.

    Kings Lynn 2019

    It tells you alot about how the sport in this Country is percieved Micky Mouse comes to mind .I told my mate about King's Lynn last week and that the team had not been totally announced .And his response was, the owner is he not the guy who runs British speedway !!!! says it all.

    Swindon Stadium

    Totally agree.

    2019 Predictions

    I actually think our reserves can surprise, i have always been a fan of Zach and i expect him to put at least a point on his average.Shanes i believe will be a huge favourite with the fans and looking at the other reserves he will hold his own.

    2019 Predictions

    If Iversen had comeback fit and rearing to go what a difference he would of made to the 2019 King's Lynn line up.

    Worrying that City heartbreaking really, how is your superb racejacket collection coming along.??

    Kings Lynn 2019

    No you just have your head in the clouds, blinkered to the odvious that the sport in this country is in big trouble.Also the Lynn fans who moan and air there views are people who are passionate about there club but they can see the bigger picture can you.?

    Swindon Stadium

    Are you saying that people should not be worried and not be entitled to air there views.??? All i will say and predict is if Swindon speedway is aloud to go down the swanny the sport and. certainly the Premiership league is doomed for good.

    Swindon Stadium

    Good point City but the new stadium was going to be only a spit away anyway so what is the difference.? 2 hrs twice a month Speedway running is that a hardship to be honest most of the complaints i have heard about is more to do with the dog racing.

    New Cross.

    Ronnie had the break from Wimbledon in 1964 after a badly broken leg( did he do car racing???) and he did not comeback until 1969.So his WF record was still very good in very strong era's winnner ( 2) and World number 2 (3 times) a great rider rode great racing lines.I only see Ronnie ride four times but what a class act he was i still keep his prized autograph with pride and i still put him in the same bracket as Barry/Ivan.

    And they can breathe in the fumes if they want to they should have NO say anyway they knew what they were buying and most are commuters anyway.
