    Dagenham Speedway

    Might be wrong but I think the only time the West Ham Hawks rode at another track (Home meetings) was 1936 and that was at Southampton.

    1950 3rd Division Riders Championship

    Speedway Researcher website is one of the great history sites for Speedway results....obviously very incomplete as they don't seem to post until they have a complete year. But there is a wealth of information out there....for me when I want to know the result of a particular meeting, its the first stop!

    West Ham How Good Was The Track.?

    My favourite place to watch Speedway (well, other than New Cross).....some great meeting there. Used to sit on the wall between the dog track and Speedway track near the start line. I watched pretty well all the meeting there from 1964 to 1972......Really "Happy Days".

    Well there you go, everything you wanted to know about Len Dillon but was afraid to ask!!! LOL wait a minute....you didn't.....LOL

    Top Five Canadian Riders

    Actually you are probably right, if I remember rightly Kyle broke his hand or something in it in his very first ride and rode the other four in pain, could have been different if that had not have happened.....doubt very much he would have made it to the GP series but he would have done much better if that had not happened. The one rider that would have done well on the International scene would have been Len Dillon, doubt you have heard of him, however he swapped flat track for Speedway at the age of 35 (I think) then went on to win 8 National Speedway titles, he was a natural. Len's qualification to the World Championships was always through the American rounds....BUT in those days of the Ford and Dillon it wasn't the regular 16 rider championship that we all know....both riders were usually paired against the very best of the Californians meeting the SAME riders a few times..... Even in the US Open in Owego, New York, Gary Ford had to beat the best Owego riders and Californians in the qualifying....and usually did beat them but its another story in the Final for Gary, which I won't go into here.

    Canadians Who Raced In Uk

    gustix....not quite sure why you have Rob Fisher as "Generally regarded as anglo-Canadian".....True he has English parents but was BORN in Canada, has a Canadian Passport and is a Canadian in every sense. Same for Gary Ford, born in Canada to English parents but a Canadian in every sense. Could be the same, though I don't know, for Sean (Change name to Shawn) Venables.
