The Internationale 1975
By Tracy Holmes

Bomb threats, Bay City Rollers, Evel Knievel at Wembley. Madness son, madness!

Still sponsored by Wills, Wimbledon now staged the 'Embassy Internationale'.

Sadly, Wimbledon skipper Barry Briggs was injured and unable to ride. Not likely to win but as ever, would have given his all.

That left one Kiwi rep and again, Ivan Mauger was not up for the task as the scorechart reflected. On the Spring Bank holiday Monday morning, at Exeter, he beat Scott Autrey in a run-off to win the Express & Echo Classic. Brilliant but again, Mauger was stuffed for this 'Major'!

Ole Olsen it was who stepped up to the plate and despite one point lost to Ray Wilson, he was never in any danger of taking home another brand new Jawa. Home favourite Tommy Jansson had hoped to push Ole to a run-off when they met in Round 4 but he fell and that was that!

Of course, no-one could have imagined this, but it was to be Tommy's last Internationale.

  • Duncan Pemberton:

    "Remember this meeting, simply because I went on the Leicester fans coach and when we got there extremely early I decided to leave my friends and tube it over to Wembley to watch Evil Knievel do his "bus jump" and ended up missing 8 heats of speedway! I was 15 at the time."
