    Speedway article in The Oldie Magazine

    Unfortunately, the title of the magazine says it all. The only people who will read this are 'old fogies' like me. I doubt if 'The Oldie' magazine has many young readers. Nice to get a mention though - all publicity is good publicity. An interesting piece though, for those unaware of Speedway's great history.

    Extortionate Admission Prices

    Some hope. They are too busy playing games on their Computers or messing about with their mobile 'phones.

    Briggo v Ivan in BLRC and British finals head to head 1965 /1974

    Nice, and very interesting Post Sidney. I agree with you. My biggest Speedway disappointment - Briggo missing out on the 1972 World Championship after being T-boned by Persson. Sad, I know, but I still feel bad about that even though it was so many years ago.
  4. I'm no fan of Pedersen but this does look like the Referee did have it in for him. Referees don't half have life easy these days. 'Visiting' the Referee was a common occurrence years ago. It used to entertain the crowd too. I can remember a number of Riders popping into the Referee's box to dispute a decision. It was fun, all the booing and cheering, depending on which team you supported was all part of the Sport and the entertainment. Ah well, "The past is another country, they do things differently there". (Quote: L. P. Hartley). Sadly...........................................................

    This is very sad news. I would like to offer my condolences to you and the rest of your family, and also, to his many friends. R.I.P. Jack. +

    Best thing about the 60s &70s

    Yes, that happened to me a couple of times when I was distracted by conversation. I soon learned, however.

    Sad news. Get well soon 'Dicko'.

    Craven v Fundin

    Hi Sid Peter Craven is one of my great Speedway heroes, and I, sadly, never got to see him race either. My interest in Speedway started back in 1964 (Sunderland 'Saints') - less than a year after Peter's fatal accident in 1963.

    SPECTATOR

    A worthwhile article for the 'Spectator' and worth the read. Maybe it will encourage a few folk who have never heard of Speedway to visit a Track out of curiosity and maybe get hooked as I did all those years ago. I, for one, certainly hope so. Thanks for the Link Philip.

    Quick Update...

    Well, I wasn't confining my arguments only to Chunky. You are right norbold, when you state that Chunky was one of John's minor attackers. There are, however, a few others on here who are not nearly so mild in their criticism, or should I say bullying (for that is what it is). I will not name them because you all know who they are.

    You too moxey63.

    Quick Update...

    Certainly not moxey63. You are definitely not the problem. I too am pleased I came on today. Believe me, it is a rare occasion these days.

    Quick Update...

    Totally agree. The Forum is dominated by a number of self-opinionated folk. They will crash down on anyone who disagrees with them. Especially, it seems, if you are elderly like John. It is his treatment that was instrumental in my cutting back drastically on my time on this Forum. I have other things to do now. So it is immaterial to me what anyone thinks. I too, communicate with John by e-mail - I would far rather listen to what he has to say than read some of the nastiness to him on here. Anyway - that is my final Post on the subject - unless I feel the need to defend myself.

    Quick Update...

    You've never said a truer word moxey63 - and it is a disgrace. The way someone in their high eighties was treated on this Forum was totally wrong. I used to enjoy most of John's Posts. Anyhow, that is why I don't bother to Post much these days. It's nice to know I am not alone.

    Quick Update...

    Can't say as I blame him as you are on his back whenever he Posts on here.
