It would possibly help if you named the village and county when Ron James lived then research could be in regard to local tracks where he may have appeared. It would also, of course, be of assistance in regard to the year(s) when the photos you mention were taken? Are there any of him with a race jacket showing an emblem. You are sure he was a speedway rider and not a grass track rider?

The only riders I can recall with that surname were the brothers Ticker and Ken James who were at Poole in the late 1940s.

The name of Ron James remains very much a mystery - at the moment. The name of Ron James does not register as a team rider in the 1950s - he may have been just a trainee somewhere. A location of somewhere would be a good line - where is your village?

The James' brothers at Poole were Dennis 'Ticker' James and Ken James.

Ron James was a former Rye House junior. He made four appearances for Ipswich in the Southern League in 1952, Hope that helps.
