Where Were They Then?
By Bill Hamilton

Another year and another selection of nostalgia from the cupboard of memorabilia.

On this occasion, a series of articles which ' The Sun ' newspaper ran in January 1973 about speedway, entitled ' Where Are They Now ? ' featuring a number of riders from the dim and distant past.

Difficult to believe that was 45 years ago when speedway often graced the newspaper inches of the press - national and local. Nowadays - virtually nothing.

  • John Hyam:

    "These old 'Sun' newspaper articles are superb recollections of riders in a time when speedway was a well organised and popular sport. Sadly, I do not think the sport will ever recapture the magic of the years between 1928 and towards the end of the 1970s and early 1980s. "
