    Corona virus

    Not me, it's a modern pic from the U.S.A. rider unknown. A 22" rear wheel it is for sure, which were used there long after they were banned here, when Martin Ashby first rode over there they were still in use then.

    If I can do it, anyone can.
  3. Must be the '57 final George White, Ian Williams and Bob Roger from Swindon.

    Split Waterman RIP

    It might help if adults desisted the veneration of criminals such as Split, surely a bad example for any young people watching.

    Sandy Powell-Dirt Track Rider

    I've taken this record around a few tracks and played it on a portable gramophone, it was a favourite of Ivor Thomas's.

    Sandy Powell-Dirt Track Rider

    Only just noticed this thread, nice one, that is part one and two on the youtube vid you posted. I have two versions one on Imperial and another on the Woolworths Victory label, So it predates 1930.

    California name debate

    Hi chunky, I was joking, thanks for your reasoned reply, however the Wokingham council Wiki site calls it a village so I'll phone them and report back.

    Split Waterman RIP

    In that case you could inform Wikipedia of the erroneous assertion that California (nr. Wokingham) is a village, it might help to cheer up your pal the doctor.

    California name debate

    You may find the history of The California Ratepayer's Hall interesting, it's where the California Womens Institute meet.

    California name debate

    As for song titles I don't need google, every title I've posted, bar one, is in my record collection, the church I mentioned describes itself as being in the parish of Finchampstead and California. Thanks for your pleasant and polite response.

    California name debate

    Oh yes there is, California nr. Wokingham has a ,Parish church called St Mary and St John California and a California village hall a California Co-op etc. Perhaps you should look at a map.

    California name debate

    Wikipedia says otherwise, there are seven places in the UK listed as California.

    British world champions ratings list

    You tell em Sam , I was starting to feel that Peter Craven was being overlooked on this thread. My take on the Wembley '62 final, (my first time there) is that Peter was an exceptionally popular winner for both fans and riders.
