Dream Team : Leanne Sampson
I am a Peterborough Panthers girl. Have been going to watch the Panthers and the
Pumas (once the Thundercats) since I was 10 years old (I am now 18).
I can probably only count on one hand the amount of times I have seen this
Peterborough man get beaten on his home track... he's pure speedway through and through.
Another pure speedway man. He is always so focused, but still got one eye open for the fans.
Nothing is ever too much for him, whether it's signing an autograph or posing for
(yet another!) photo. He's a good team rider which is what speedway is all about.
Not only a good rider, but not too bad to look at either!
"The Dark Shadow." So loyal. A true Peterborough man.
Who can fault him. Bring him back from retirement I say!
What a guy! Always time for the fans, always a dream on the track,
what more can you ask for ?
His cute little kiddies racing round the back of the pits on their tricycles were
so cute in the mid-90's!
Great partnership with Olly Allen in the 1998 season for Peterborough,
highest averaging pair of reserves that year.
Save the best til last! Improving all the time, will be a world champ one day... I'm sure of it.
