The BLRC 1974
By Tracy Holmes

October 19 and the Belle Vue stage got rained on but not enough for any postponement. The home fans were delighted as their own Peter Collins swept all before him to take the Title unbeaten.

He was only outgated once and that was by Phil Crump in Round 3. Crumpy only had that lead for less than a lap before Collins swept around him.

Defender Ivan Mauger stayed on the podium despite dropping 3 points and then beating Phil Crump in the 2nd Place run-off. Ole Olsen had qualified but it was his turn to miss out through injury.

Also missing were the Swedes like Anders Michanek and Tommy Jansson who were banned from the British League that year. Just took a little sparkle out of the fireworks that night.
