Strangely - I can vaguely remember that cover. I am almost sure I purchased that particular Annual for my son way back when.

Really great!

Just emphasises how speedway was viewed back in the seventies and early eighties. Terrestrial TV and major sponsors.

Used to wait in all week for 20 minutes' racing on a Saturday. We were easily pleased back then.

These days supporters moan about commentators shouting and pronouncing riders names wrong, but forget they are provided with speedway - yes, live speedway - most weeks throughout the summer, almost three hours at a time too.

...interesting that it's referred to as 'cinder track!'

Another reminder of the days when speedway was shown on terrestrial TV...and Test matches (remember those?) between England and the USA. Great days!

£1000 in 1973 would be hefty sum I think?

...another superb edition! To think that a speedway rider had a column in one of the dailies!

The 1970's...speedway's last Golden Era! Glad that my formative years were spent following the sport during that time.
