  • Malcolm Cook:

    "In or around 1976 I was managing Alvin Stardust. At the request of a music publisher friend called Terry Noon, Alvin and I attended a meeting at Wimbledon Speedway to present something or other. Obviously being a speedway fan, prancing around the pits and chatting to Dons manage Cyril Maidment and captain Barry Briggs I was in my element. Briggo took Alvin around the track on his bike, after which Alvin had his photograph taken with the great x times World Champion.....the pic features in one of Barry's books. Alvin had to leave before the end of the meeting to do a radio interview....but Briggo told me he was going to do 20-30 laps after the crowd had left. He took me out onto the centre grass area and stood me on the start to a bend....I nearly panicked when on his first lap he threw the bike over into a power slide....hence he was initially coming straight at me but of course drifted into the bend.....brilliant!"

  • Allan Youle:

    "Does anyone recall a speedway match way back in the 1950 s when on a dreadful night of torrential rain Wimbledon went to the unbeatable Wembley and won 42/41? I recall that Mike Erskine scored 11 points. I got absolutely drenched and it turned me off the stadium for life."

  • Michael Durand:

    "The speedway has been there since 1929, and the people who live there and have been there 5 minutes and they think they own the place. "
