For anyone unfamiliar with Speedway, this was a reunion meeting staged to renew friendships between fellow racers, officials, promoters and supporters from way back in time, some not having met up with each other for 40 years.
To make it relevant for today’s spectators, we arranged static displays of racing bikes both old and new, one-off engines (all collectors items), race jackets from teams all over the country, many photographs of both teams and individuals, a special board of photographs of ‘Absent Friends’ those no longer alive, a sales table for memorabilia and more.
We also ran a supersize raffle and an auction of memorabilia, much of which was up to date, autographed, and specially donated by the cycling and motorcycle fraternity. Our thanks go to Speedway’s Tai Woffinden and his mum Sue, Moto G.P.’s Dani Pedrosa, Marc Marquez, John McGuinness, Alex Lowes, Ryuichi Kyonari, Jason O’Halloran, and lastly to Sir Chris Hoy, for their personal donations for the auction.
