Dream Team : Paul Houghton

I'm a Coventry Bees fan and have been since the 70's.

Ole Olsen
Nobody could lead or motivate the team like our Great Dane! If we were in the lead going into the last heat we knew we would win.

Chris Morton
I loved watching Mighty Mort race at Hyde Rd, he couldn't gate to save his life but by hell he gave you a race and a half! He knew where the racing line was and always swung out into the dirt to fly past his amazed opponent.

Erik Gundersen
Great rider and always spoke when we saw him, a genuine all round nice chap. Who can ever forget his awesome outside pass of the team-riding King & Moran in the 1985 World Final?

Chris Harris
A latter day rider, speedway today lacks characters, riders who keep you on the edge of your seat, Bomber is one such rider that is capable of doing it, as his British GP Final win showed, never beaten till the chequered flag drops.

Tony Rickardsson
I actually wrote to Coventry suggesting they take a look at this young swede who had rode so well in the 1990 Under 21 final, I was told they had their eyes on a better rider, Peter Ravn was that rider!!! Always liked Tony and wished he'd signed for the Bees, the Cardiff GP wall of death ride says it all.

Andreas Jonsson
Always liked AJ and would welcome him back to Coventry with open arms, great rider who is a class above others on occasions, when he's good he's great, but when he's bad he's awful. If he can sort his health out he will become World Champion.

Tom Farndon
I've been told I'm distantly related to him, so I decided to look into the pre-war history of Coventry speedway, and by all accounts Tom was a thrill seeking daredevil rider who was destined to reach the very top until his fateful crash at New Cross in 1935. A true great in his own lifetime.
