    Olle Nygren

    Apparently Olle had throat cancer which was in remission, but he finally passed due to COVID-apparently Peter Oakes will be doing a piece on Olle in the Speedway Star which will also mention this.

    Oldest Surviving World Finalists

    Hi all, Reg was in touch with Bengt Jansson, apparently Ulf Ericsson died in the mid seventies in an air crash so he can sadly be removed from the list. Still no word on Olle Andersson yet though.

    First meeting-how many riders still alive.

    Terry Stone still with us-has done a lot for speedway and has kept in touch with many former riders. I recall him coming to Canada and going out of his way to meet Mike Tams, then close to the end of his life. Good on you Terry - a valued member of the speedway family.

    Bristol enquiry

    Do you mean Bristol v. Birmingham in the early fifties. I was long gone in the seventies so not sure they met then.

    Are you sure Kelvin Mullarkey has passed away-I thought he was still living with Len Silver's ex Hazel, near where Len lives and all three were still the best of friends.??

    Another piece of info I was not aware of. Leo McAuliffe (RIP) a World Finalist, 1963 maybe-I think he was from Wales right?

    Firstly to Steve Roberts, I recall your post Steve, that was what gave me the idea, but I forgot who posted it, it was under another thread heading I think-anyway apologies from me for not mentioning it. Secondly Tracy Bird, thanks for bringing me up to date re Bob Hughes, though naturally sorry to learn he passed. BTW is Tim Bungay still with us-I thought he was gone, signed for Newport in 1967 but almost immediately had a bad injury. Hope he is with us-anyone know anything about Tim these days. Also enjoyed reading the responses , brought back some memorable names to me, thanks everybody.
