West Ham, I now go to Arena Essex (Lakeside Hammers), not quite the same, tendency for smaller tracks and bikes are ridden in a different way.

 

What are the best things about speedway?

All the action is visible unlike most other motor sport.

 

What are the worst things about speedway?

Guest riders, the old chesnut, but how do replace riders if say 3 or 4 are missing from the team?

 

What one thing would you do to improve speedway?

Bring the noise back, If you buy a house close to a track that's your problem, you should have checked first!

 

Tell us about a rider you wish you'd seen

Jack Young.

 

What does the future hold for speedway?

Good but more teams are needed.
