Wolverhampton Last Night

 

Heat 01: Ward,Thorssell,Lindgren,Krcmar...53.45 NEW TRACK RECORD 3-3

 

Thanks to Speedway Updates

 

 

Tai equalled his track record at the British Final and was gutted as he shut off coming out of the fourth bend. Here Ward shut off with about 20 yards to go so could have been as low as 53.35 or 53.20

The TR for Brooklands (Romford) was recorded as 68.8secs and set on 25 March 1971.

 

Tony (Shrimp) Davey set it in Heat 4 and the time was equalled by John (Tiger) Louis in Heat 12 and again in JL's defence of the Silver Helmet against the late Colin Sanders.

 

The track length was recorded as 375 yards - which apparently equates to 342.9 metres.

 

I remember the Witches pair winning their heats by a clear distance that night. Tony Davey recording a 5 x ride maximum from Reserve and JL a 12pt maximum.

Ok, think I've finally got this up to date as much as I can find or as much as some of the teams websites allow...

 

Can't believe it's so difficult on some teams sites to find this information and on some, it's not even listed!!!!

 

Anyway, if you find a glaringly obvious mistake, please feel free to let me know and I'll try now and keep on top of them when a record is broken...

Could anyone ever match the achievements of the great Birmingham rider Graham Warren who broke the Perry Barr track record eleven times and also simultaneously held the track records at six other tracks?
