    Jan Andersson quits tuning and retires

    I was there too back in '75 when he made his debut, and he won his first race.............against Sheffield me thinks as I'm sure it was Carl Glover he beat. Great rider.

    Time for a change?

    As a buyer and subscriber also from day one, I think it logical to extend the timeframe. As a lapsed speedway fan who stopped attending in 1978, to fill in the gaps in the 80's and hopefully now the 90's would be a real boon. Just don't forget the 70's along the way, other than that go for it................

    Pete Munday R.I.P.

    Very sad news. Pete was in the Robins team when I first started watching back in '71. Always good to watch. RIP Pete

    BBC Sports Personality Stitch Up

    SPOTY has always been rigged. I have heard from a reliable source that there was a successful campaign to get Justin Fashanu in the winners circle. The Beeb quashed the results that year of course, and he never received the winners trophy. RIP Justin
