  • Peter Colvin:

    "What a wonderful set of images from Fred Pallett. I just love these kind of fan's eye view photos. I especially like the New Cross photo looking towards the starting gate. It really shows how the fourth bend virtually ends at the finish line. Thank you Fred. "

  • Pete Jupp:

    "What great pictures of London stadiums - such a shame that there is no longer Speedway in the capital."
