    Frank Arthur a real Pioneer.!!!

    I would think that Speedway or a form of it started around 1890. Researching the word "Speedway" in first came into use in the USA around 1890 where a stadium promoted 2 and 4 wheel racing. Slightly early and seems to knock out Johnny Hoskins claim

    Un-official World Finals

    I wonder how accurate these reports are when it says half a lap with a puncture and the fastest time of the evening and in the last heat as well

    Left Handed Rider... Does Anybody Know ?

    There are many sports that have a good advantage being left handed like tennis , table tennis, ten pin bowling but not polo or hockey which is a distinct disadvantage

    Speedway's Greatest Promoters

    Surely Sir Arthur Elvin without whom there would be no Wembley Lions or World Individual Championships

    10 favourite Australian riders

    What about Billy Sanders
  6. Today there in an anti greyhound mentality saying the sport is cruel and should be stopped. There used to be 33 greyhound stadiums in London and now I think there is only that number in the whole of the UK. If the anti greyhound brigade succeed it will then move over to horse racing like it is happening in the USA

    BSI lose GPs

    Except last night's match which was a cup quarter final and only 58,000

    TV new deal?

    One of the main reasons BT do not want British Speedway is they have paid a fantastic amount of money to show WWE Wrestling next year.They have lost the tennis Grand Slams which they used to show and look like losing WTA tennis to Amazon who have also got the rights to mens tennis

    Berwick, Sheffield and Kent.

    For next season it makes sense for all teams to race on any night they want to. I would wager that not many would want to race on a monday night as it s the worst day of the week for promoting speedway especially when live TV is being shown
  10. Why was Jason Doyle not disqualified for putting both wheels over the white line in heat one
  11. In the late 1980's on a sunday stock car world championship final meeting there was 15.500 there which was higher than at Wimbledon with a Boris Becker tennis final
  12. Surely with the rain forecast today the match at Ipswich tomorrow will be cancelled as well
  13. I think you might find that Poole got knocked out by Ipswich and I don;t think in any sport they give the title to a losing semi finalist
  14. Ipswich would win the title as they would be the only team in the final

    British world champions ratings list

    Not quite sure what you mean as I probably saw Freddie Williams and Tommy Price more times than any of the others and Tai Woffenden the least
