    Ricky Ashworth on BBC breakfast this morning.

    Mike Bushell does seem to have an interest and a positive positive attitude towards our sport.
  2. No problem for Jason Crump...

    Kid Bodie?

    Amazing to think he would go on to be a world finalist.

    Biker magazine

    Speedway on the front cover of this magazine this month in the form of a splendid picture of a vintage JAP bike with accompanying article inside. Good Stuff.

    Letter to Ivan

    There is a truly wonderful story on the Belle Vue Facebook site about Ivan Mauger and a superfan featured on the BBC North West Tonight programme. Scroll down to check it out. https://www.facebook.com/bellevuespeedway/

    The Monkey's Paw

    Did anyone catch this film on Talking Pictures today? Some brief speedway action near the end of this 1948 film including some very unconvincing back projection!

    Time for a change?

    But - and this is the crux of it from our viewpoint - would extending coverage into the 90s STOP you from buying Backtrack? Whilst ever my finances are buoyant I will continue to buy Backtrack. A survey of your readers will presumably provide all the answers.

    Time for a change?

    One year from now, the beginning of the 90's will be 30 years past. I think Backtrack started in 2004, only 14 years after the end of the 80's, so I guess there is a case for expanding the coverage into the 90's. Personally, I would have little interest in the 90's because the decline was well and truly beginning and things would never be the same again.

    Commentator of the Year

    Dave Goddard is a breath of fresh air in the commentating world and fully deserves this award. Well done Dave Goddard!

    Barry Hearn and 'player power'

    What speedway needs is someone like Theresa May to run the sport. Someone who really knows what they are doing.

    Blimey..speedway on BBC1!

    Dead right. The BBC are engaged in a frenzy of box ticking tosh.

    BBC Sports Personality Stitch Up

    Briggo's runner up place in '66 has been well documented and speculated over. Some say he actually won, but the idea of a speedway rider winning in the year that England won the football world cup was not what the BBC was prepared to accept. Supposedly.
