The Golden Hammer - 1982
July 28. 1982.
Steve Johnson is on the keys for Speedway Star; "England's number one, Kenny Carter, who last year was told he would never be offered another open booking at Dudley Wood, returned to carry off the Golden Hammer in supreme style - and he blasted a warning to his World Championship rivals. Carter was banned by the Cradley management last September after failing to turn up for a British League match. But, he was granted a reprieve by Peter Adams and look full advantage to finish five points clear of the field thanks to a faultless maximum."
The World Champion, Bruce Penhall arrived late as he had been competing in a TV competition where filming ran late. Now just how bizarre would this turn out to be? Then he fell chasing Carter in heat 6. What would be his last ever Hammer was as a bag of luke warm chips. The World Final in LA was one month away. Would his clash with Carter be any more exciting???
