Issue 86 - IVAN MAUGER TRIBUTE SPECIAL

Recommended Posts

BACKTRACK

Our sister publication specialising on speedway in the 70s & 80s pays in-depth tribute to

IVAN MAUGER

48 full colour pages dedicated to the man we believe was The Greatest

ISSUE 86 (MAY-JUNE, 2018)

WHEN the sad news reached us that Ivan Mauger had died in a Gold Coast nursing home, aged 78, on April 16, 2018, we decided there and then that issue of Backtrack would be devoted entirely to the memory of the man we recognise as the greatest-ever speedway rider.

The special commemorative collectors' edition is packed with tributes from many of his biggest friends and rivals, including Ronnie Moore, Barry Briggs, Ole Olsen, Peter Collins and Anders Michanek, plus Bruce Penhall, Hans Nielsen and many others.

We hear from Guy Allott and Gordon Stobbs, two key members of Ivan's mechanical support team.

Supporters from all over the globe also share their personal memories of the great man, who played a very influential role in winning league championships with Newcastle, Belle Vue (three) and Exeter before leading Hull to their best-ever top tier season.

For the statistically minded, we have the Mauger Timeline, Ivan's British League season-by-season career record, from 1965 to 1984, as well as his 'British Track Tour', listing every UK venue at which he rode (excluding training schools).

Drawing on his past interviews in the magazine, we reproduce some of  Ivan's thoughts on key subjects that affected his time in the game.

Martin Rogers and Tony Mac offer their personal take on the man who changed the face of speedway forever.

Our coverage of Ivan's funeral includes comments of appreciation from Ivan's three children.

Have just received my copy of BackTrack. I can only say what a wonderful tribute to arguably the Greatest Speedway Rider ever.

Congratulations on a tremendous effort, a 'must' for all Speedway Fans in my opinion.
