    Ken Archer

    That is really sad... I've known Ken all my life, as he played on the WSSC dart team with my mum and dad. Unfortunately, we lost touch when he moved to Caterham, but we used to visit Ken and Esther in Aylett Rd. I also used to ride to White City with them. R.I.P. Ken.

    Parker bros v Milne bros

    Okay, nobody has said anything, so I would just like to add that the Parker Brothers should have had a monopoly... Sorry...

    Un-official World Finals

    Again, how many sports pride themselves on such meaningful names as "Best Pairs", "Revenge World Championship", "Overseas Final", and "Speedway of Nations"?

    Speedway Fatalities "In Memoriam"

    I appreciate the kind words! I know there must still be a few that are missing, and I am always checking. I can't take all the credit, though, as there are a number of individuals from around the world who have contributed, including yourself.

    I'm pretty sure it was dictated by the length of track; you will see how the Sydney Showground was a 3-lap track.

    Exactly what I said, and don't forget, we can add Davidsson, Schroeck, and Christiansen to that list!

    It actually appears he rode in three meetings. Okay, no points from two rides isn't good, but not totally unexpected at a new track. Paid 7 from 3 is pretty good. He also rode in a BL match against Reading. He finished second first time out, but fell in his second and never reappeared; I assume he was injured. Overall, that is not bad from a new rider. He wasn't great at Halifax, but could certainly be classed as "useful". Averaging less than 4 for Eastbourne is poor... Then again, that was an era when Eastbourne had little difficulty in securing riders who could average less than four points a meeting!

    Jan Puk and Jozef Kafel, Steve. Then there was Marek Kepa. Also Piotr Pyszny, who was at Arlington in 1983, but never showed the form he did at Poole and Halifax.

    Riders trying to dictate to the authorities? Whatever next? Good thing that doesn't happen now...

    USA Open Championship

    Go to speedwaybikes.com. You will find info on there, and contact details. Jason Bonsignore is doing a good job up there.
