    Will British Speedway Survive ?

    Hardly likely if the same people that let it run down are running it after the Covid 19 crisis is over.

    Ipswich 2020

    That will be the acid test for speedway - do they want anything that is put before them or not? It is not 1947 anymore and the possibility exists that the die hard support for speedway ( especially in the UK ) will shrink considerably

    Oh Ah! I remember when you could throw a postage stamp over the four riders just afore they crossed the finish line. Thass why there aren't hardly anybody going to watch nowadays - a course I mean last season as we aint going to have this season.

    Corona virus

    You can also use your fingers to wipe your bottom when there is not a toilet roll in sight, but a crumpet in your hands is a thing of wonder!

    Corona virus

    I hope they are wearing haz mat suits to pack the sweets? That's how it spreads - give someone your last rolo and Sayonara!
  6. That was my debut as an excited 14 year old on the coach from Norwich. Oh the bliss of seeing Our Man win before our very eyes. Nothing ever beat that except seeing him do it again.

    Step forward Barry Bishop - kneel and Arise Sir Barry. And onwards to the deserved speedway sainthood status. Please foward some DNA and I will attempt to clone 50 Promoters, who can work together to ensure the speedway racing does survive.
  9. To Peter Collins - remember just how you were adored by so many and are still olved by them, for what you did and how you did it. Pure class for sure, a true speedway racer.

    Times do indeed change. No-one now has any savings to fall back on for a rainy day. I don't think we can blame austerity for that.
  11. Did you go with Chequers Travel in 1976? I remember it so vividily, the whole trip and having to buy zlotys before you entered the country. The only thing I found worth buying in the shops was quite good quality monochrome photograph paper. Stupendous Peter Collins effort! The whole trip by coach was £41.
  12. And mine too. Especially memorable as we crowded round his car when he arrived and he got out on my side and stood on my foor in the crush. True story and it was his left foot too! I have washed it since, but not for quite a while afterwards. I was 18 and at the peek of my speedway madness. I got a lift over from Norwich ( where I then lived ) to join the King's Lynn coach ( and sing The Hairs on a..... ) Those were the days! I remember coming to blows with fans from the distant North who supported Eric Boocock. As a child at Norwich , taken by my speedway crazy parents - on the back of their bicycles, I never really took much notice until Ove arrived there and became my first speedway hero.

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    I would like to mourn the passing of Stars superfan and season ticket holder - David Mckuen, who passed away last week after a short illness. David was devoted to the Stars and attended every year since they opened ( and also the Linnets football team ). He was a kind and generous man who went out of his way to give me a lift to Stars matches. If you knew him on the first bend terraces, join me in a There You Go friend salute. R.I.P. David. God Bless.
  14. Great and hopefully it will happen here and hopefully it will still cost five pfennigs to get in. Even I could afford it then.
  15. Geoff is an Enormous Fan of finger wagging and caning and all such corporal punishment for crimes ay any level.
