Rider with the most misspelt name in British Speedway... Mike Broadbank. 

Mind you, if he was bothered about it, he would have pointed it out to the editor of the Swindon Speedway programme.

I did actually think about that. I knew it was one or the other, as it was often misspelt,  and then went with the wrong one!

Quite possibly, but were Egon Müller or Kevin Wölberts name ever spelt correctly in the UK? At least the press spell Müller correctly in relation to the Mueller report on Trump . Add to that a number of Swedes like Sjösten or Lindbäck....

I always found Norman a good name for a Speedway Rider. It's an especially good one to name your children after!

At one time a former rider named Nobby Stock lived nearby. I thought his real name was Norman but I may be wrong.

That's funny, he lived near me too, in Clacton. I met him a few times, but never thought to ask him his real name!
