    In your opinion…..who would those two be and why?

    Swedish GP Malilla Saturday 15th June

    How the track staff managed to turned what looked like a cancelled meeting into something I found very exciting I don’t know. If they can do that in Sweden why can’t it be done on British tracks after prolonged rain. Is it drainage, track foundation, material on top, something else that made it possible. And it sounds like it wasn’t a one off. It was an amazing turnaround.

    Who would think we are in the middle of June and longest day of the year is next Friday. Has anything gone wrong with our weather….not heard of anything.

    Russians at Norwich

    Interesting the 3 races Fundin and Plechanov met at Norwich, Fundin won all 3. Yet at World Championship Fundins nemesis was Plechanov. Plechanov finished 2nd in 1964 (Gothenberg) and also 2nd in 1965 (Wembley) both times beating Fundin in a run off after both scored 13 points. Coming 2nd in 1965 at Wembley means Plechanov was the first and only eastern European rider to be in the top 3 at Wembley. Boris Samarodov came close at Wembley, coming 4th in 1963, followed by 4th in 1964 at Gothenberg. He was also World Ice Racing champion in 1967. Boris also had a 2nd, 3rd, and three 5th places on the ice World Championships.

    Russians at Norwich

    The good ole days when the Russians (and the Poles) used to tour the uk, riding the communist Czech ESO machines with handlebars clamped to front forks. A pity the likes of Igor Plechanov and Boris Samarodov couldn’t ride regularly in the UK…. Russia would have had a world champion long before Laguta. Those were the days when riding in the UK was THE place to be if you wanted to be at the very top of world class speedway.
  10. Thought I heard Lambert say he brought couple Polish engines over. GB won’t be cold, 4 GB riders were there last night, any 3 of that 4 will be in the final.

    Thank you for the heads up on that. What could have been a meaningless Sunday evening gained some interest.

    Ove Fundin 90 years old today

    Watching Peter Craven and Ove thundering into the 3rd bend at Belle Vue (where I always stood), especially for the Golden Helmet Match Race, was absolutely amazing. Two brilliant riders, completely different in build and riding styles, racing very close but not clashing, total respect for each other........ never to be forgot.

    Ove Fundin 90 years old today

    He won many titles, and deservedly so, but this one was given to him “Mr Perpatual Motion”, 10 top three places on the trot in the world championship between 1956-1965. He missed out in 1966 (f I recall correctly SVEMO banned him riding), he came back in 1967, whilst riding for Belle Vue, and won it for the last time. An amazing record. Only other rider to do 10 top three finishes on the trot in the world championship was Jason Crump from 2001-2010 in the gran prix era.
