    I would have liked to have 'Like'd this Post. Unfortunately, for some reason, I can't. I've been unable to for months, despite reporting it.

    Would these tracks have reopened in 1964

    Ahhh yes!!! 1964 - The year Sunderland 'Saints' got 'stuffed' by their own Promoters'. Never forget - never forgive either.

    The Footage Detectives

    TPTV is a must watch station on the TV. I record 'the Footage Detectives' every week. There are some great old Programmes to watch. I do most of my recording on this Channel, LOVE IT.

    Chris116 When I said "I wanted to 'Like' the Post" I wanted to but the Forum wont let me for some reason. When I clicked on 'Liking' Technic's Post above this one, I get a Heart with a black cross to the right of it. That is why I posed as I did.

    Mike Parker - Saint or sinner?

    A sinner in my opinion as was Bill Bridgett too. I can never forgive them for what they did to Sunderland 'Saints' in 1964. They closed us so that they could strengthen their other two Tracks, namely Newcastle and Wolverhampton by 'divvying up' our riders between them, their reasons given for closing just did not add up. The weather was not great, but, we suffered no 'rain offs'. The crowds were pretty good - I know this for I was there at every match. It is notable that Wolverhampton were bottom of the League at the time of our closure, Newcastle got Ken Sharples and went on to win the League, Wolverhampton finished third in the League that year with a good number of Sunderland riders in their team. Jim Airey, Gordon Guasco and Colin McKee. I am still very bitter and disgusted about the way Sunderland Speedway was treated by the Promoters in 1964.

    British Riders' Championships

    I do sincerely hope that something can be done about this. At the moment, those lads were deserving of being called 'World Champions' but, for whatever reason, were not recognised as such. I think it would be great if this could happen. Fingers crossed for their families sake.

    I live in Sunderland and cannot make it. Very best wishes for your efforts though, I sincerely hope you can succeed in keeping Speedway in Peterborough. I have been to the Peterborough track on a number of occasions and thoroughly enjoyed, not just the racing, but the the atmosphere too. Good Luck.
