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

"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. "
