I first got involved with speedway in 1976 after watching from 1970. I had 2 half rides at Weymouth before joining the junior team at the age of 16. I then went to Peterborough for a year before going on to Oxford all at junior level ….. Finished riding in 1980 after serval injures and became a mechanic for riders like Mark Carlson, Troy Butler & Rene Madsen to name a few.
Came to Scunthorpe a few months ago as my son wanted a go at speedway and wanted a hand. Met up with Andy who I had met at Oxford while working for Rene after many years.
I enjoyed the day so much I have been to every day since and I love helping others out and still get a buzz from the odd skid lol
