    I keep hearing that Belle Vue are chasing a young Aussie that lives in Perth???

    Speedway photographers in focus!

    As a youngster I loved the Wright Wood piccys and the Craven and Hyde Rd classics are still on my living room wall (and I'm a Wolves fan!). In later years I was amazed by the quality of action pics in the Arena Essex programmes, you could count the wheel spokes with ease. Apologies for not knowing the name of the photographer.

    I think we are on the same wavelength? It was certainly important to be served before him to ensure the optimum choice was available at that late time in the evening! .

    Help the forum!

    It's the amount of new cut and paste postings in one go that causes the issues. Could you consider putting them up on the anniversary of the riders passing or their birthday. A more appropriate time for reflection.

    Wimbledon Memories

    Wimbledon Memories: 1: having beer(s) in the Corner Pin. 2: eating in the local chippy and chatting with Arthur Nutley. 3: 1970: Jimmy Ogisu at the Internationale. 4: disappointment that Ronnie Green couldn't pronounce Ivan Mauger''s name correctly. 5: getting lost on the way (pre sat navigation era!). Spotted bikes on a trailer. Followed it. Car stopped and it was Ivan Mauger. He got out and he said, "if you are following me, I'm visiting the people I stayed with when I first came to England. If you hang on 15 mins then I will go to Plough Lane!" 6: pulling onto the car park and the attendant said that Keith Moon had died. My mate in the car said, "Who". Wolves won!

    Perhaps 'cynical' average manipulation to keep Douglas at reserve for the play offs would have been enough to negate the Dad's Army strength at reserve?

    ... and a political one... 'That grim EEC hag'..... Maggie Thatcher. From Private Eye many years ago!

    Belle Vue 2022

    Perhaps Tai could ride all home meetings for Wolves on a Monday.... and then all Belle Vue home meetings on a Thursday.... it could be called 'doubling up' to help the BSPA (L) to maintain the sports integrity.

    Depends which club has the best tattoo parlour?

    Supreme Stylist

    I've heard Poole fans suggesting that Matt Ford was their best 'Supreme Stylist'
  13. I've got a BSPA rule book..... but I think it's well beyond repair!

    What a gem. Thank you for the link. Just looking at the Memorial page. The Gary Peterson piece is a reminder of a meeting I will never forget. I will raise a glass to all of them later . RiP

    Alternative Happy Christmas Thread

    I'm also finding it hard to wish certain stadium owners where speedway is / used to be staged a Happy Christmas this year.
