Other Museums

Recommended Posts

Are there any other museums with a speedway or even board racing exhibit?I have seen that the museum at Hockenheim has what looks like a brilliant collection of racing cars and bikes,but am not sure if they have any relevant exhibits to speedways history...

Thanks arnieg.The Garage Mahal I always thought was a private collection.Steve Luxton is a relative of one of our members and have seen a few photos.Looked like a bar with speedway bikes etc as decoration.

 

Am I right in thinking Ole Olsen has some memorabilia on display in Haderslev?But in a hotel rather than museum?

An excellent reminder Alan Jones. I now recall there was much complimentary debate on the BSF about the Forshaw Speedway Collection some 10 years ago. For those with a real interest in this thread, here are LINKS to the museum where the collection is housed.

I am certain that at one time in the late 1940s there was a small speedway museum associated to Exeter Speedway? A confirmation - or denial! - would be appreciated. I have an idea that the famed Falcons' legtraiier and later their team manager Bernard 'Bronco' Slade was involved with the museum.

I found a Denver Broncos museum,but that has nothing to do with speedway.And i think other than finding a time machine in the attic how do you propose visiting this museum that existed maybe,possibly in the 1940s

I know this is off topic about 'Bronco' Slade and the possible Exeter Speedway Museum, but it is probably a unique happening. In 1939 he was a member of the Crystal Palace speedway team. Some 21 years later in the early 1960s he was back in action at the Palace - this time on the big car and motorcycle race circuit - driving go-karts!I

Respected Exeter historian Rob Martikies has contacted me via PM in regard to my surmise that there may have been an Exeter Speedway Museum with one-time rider and team manager Bernard 'Bronco' Slade involved with it.

Rob who knew 'Bronco' for many years says that my thoughts in regard to the museum were no more than speculation.

Rob wrote, "I have no knowledge of this museum."

A nice tasteful response on Rob's part which is much appreciated.

Seems i made a mistake and assumed it was at the stadium.Looking at further info it seems it is actually within a Shopping Centre,which would possibly attract more interest and promote the club/sport even more than just the converted who visit the stadium :t:
