Sad news indeed. Saw him many times over the years always had time for a chat and an autograph, he was a regular at the Sunderland speedway reunions and was a great story teller.

God bless him.

That's sad...saw him ride a few times. I'm sure he was also a postman whilst riding speedway?

RIP

He was born in June 1951 so I make that 69?

Sad news. Was at Lew Coffin’s Weymouth Training School 70-71ish and was a big character from day 1. Good career and never changed from being a friendly and approachable guy who was always ready for a chat. Finished as runner up to Brian Woodward in one of the annual Training School Trophies. 
 

RIP Pete
