    Three pounds admission was Wembley '81, standing on the bend, league speedway cost less than a pound at the time, I seem to remember. As for Bruce, his riding was sensational that night, possibly one reason for so many riders calling it the best meeting they had seen.
  2. 30 odd years ago, when Bob Jones and Jim Gregory rode their Rudges with Steve Chilman on a Douglas and others rode in second half most people stayed.
  3. George White rip

    Whoever wrote the obituary for the Swindon Speedway website has forgotten that he rode in the 1957 Wembley final.

    ....and me, c1990, the entrance, including the workshop and terracing were still intact, I've still got my souvenir bricks.
  6. Just A Thought...

    His brother Ivor (RIP) was the driving force, along with Barry at Iwade. Yes, as stated in Lee's book he rode at Weymouth four times only, then at the pre season trials at Swindon and once after the meeting at Oxford and then second half rides at Swindon. He had however practised in a field near Uffington a fair bit.

    Weymouth, from the early sixties until its demise.
  8. Tv Times 27/7/63

    The you tube vid. of the '74 final shows three races featuring Dag using a Jawa, Lee Dunton states ( defunct speedway site) Dag used a JAP in 75/76 including at the Intercontinental final at Wembley.

    Egon riding a JAP upon which he won a long track final, 1974?
  10. Split Waterman 94 Years Young Today

    And there was a poem about him on Radio 4, sometime in the eighties.
  11. Enjoyed the trip to Monmore Heath on Monday, came home watched it on youtube and it scared me, a real tough battle for points and a real high level of skill on display and surely the most frightening first turn around.
  12. Looked it up now, thanks, still a bit of a shock, rival groups eh? I had no idea. We get up to Monmore for both types of speedway when possible so I have an interest.
  13. Banned? no please what?
