  • Ian Harwood:

    "The first film appears to be a story about our hero eventually becoming the 1970 World Champion. Film is cut in and around footage from the final at Wroclaw although there's only the tiniest amount of racing from the final itself shown. There is a section 44 seconds in showing Ivan Mauger leading two Polish riders, one of whom I think is Antoni Woryna. It could be possible this is the only film of that year's final as Tony McDonald states in his World Finals of the 1970s DVD that none exists. The other seems to be quite a serious and worthy drama that also leads up to the main character becoming World Champion, this time in 1976. Good fun speedway star spotting in this one with Phil Crump, Peter Collins, Malcolm Simmons, Scott Autrey, John Boulger, Chris Morton, Ivan Mauger and Egon Muller all being in evidence. Interesting footage from the practice day and final itself cut in with the story. Pointless trivia spotted is that Peter Collins wore different leathers on practice and race days, and Simmo sported his Poole colours for practice. "
