The Golden Hammer - 1978
By Tracy Holmes and Steve Baker

July 26. 1978. Here is how Steve Johnson saw it for Speedway Star; "Exeter's American ace Scott Autrey showed he will be a real threat in the World Final by carrying off the Golden Hammer Trophy in front of Dudley Wood's biggest crowd of the season. Autrey was relegated to a second place in the opening race but then added four tremendous victories to finish a point clear of British Champion Mike Lee. In fact, it was Lee who beat the American in Heat 1, in a time of 65.4 seconds, equalling the track record set up by Ole Olsen a year ago."

The lone Kiwi LARRY ROSS, did what he was so good at. Making huge waves by winning three heats but not firing in the other two. Ten points was still pretty impressive all the same.
