    Just One Race (or maybe two!)

    1969..Swindon v Exeter..Briggs v Ashby neck and neck for 4 laps, Ashby won by a tyre width. 2007..Coventry v Swindon..Swindon needed a 5-1 in last heat to win. Adams was away and gone, Chrzanowski spent 4 laps holding off Schlein and Nicholls, as I leapt around amongst the Bees fans. Incredible speedway.

    Most unfortunate team

    Most unfortunate team Wolves in 2017 Grand Final, Lindgren and Thorsell out injured but Swindon cocked up the first leg, but won final by one point at Monmore..Harris poor guest, same as 2012 when Poole lost out, with Ward out., the title going to the rip roaring Rockin Robins from Wiltshire.

    Barry Duke still a familiar sight around the town with his ponytail, always has time for a chat. Still lives in Penhill. Didn't Roger ride for the Rangers?

    Fourteen Favourite Swindon Riders

    Mike Keen and Geoff Bouchard great club servants, with riders such as Munday, Hitch, Holloway, David Ashby, etc., backbone of the club, and half were local lads. Hitchy my favourite with his famous fourth bend divebombs.

    A favourite speedway era

    I went regularly 63-72, then lost interest to birds booze betting and music, got back into it after a 30 year break when living up in Cumbria and going to Worky. Have been attending most Swindon matches and Cardiff GPs for last 13 seasons.

    Hard Riders Of The Past Any Thoughts?

    The obvious world beaters Fundin Mauger and Briggs. Ryan Fisher was bloody hard, and Carl Stonehewer and Rusty Harrison up at Worky. Clive Hitch, Pete Munday, Bob Kilby, Jason Doyle, Hans Andersen, at Swindon, and Nikki Pedersen at GP level, are just a few, plenty of Poles and Russians, with special mention to Chris Bomber Harris...well ard
  14. Crumpie was a terrific rider for Swindon. A long line of good Aussies at The Abbey, the brilliant duo Adams, Ward, both sadly now in wheelchairs, current number 1 Doyley, and Morris, Batchelor, Johnston, young Crumple, Street and the rest...

    Rider Rivalries

    Remember when Mauger knocked Kilby off at The Abbey, angry Swindon fans on the GREYHOUND track. Smuggled out under blanket in back of Mercedes, to avoid being lynched by the natives! Pedersen v a lot of riders at the Cardiff GP, dirty sod. Andersen v Pedersen was very tasty! Mauger and Olsen were dirty buggers
