The Golden Hammer - 1984
By Tracy Holmes and Steve Baker

June 27. 1984.

Once again it's Steve Johnson sharing the action for Speedway Star. "Cradley's longest serving rider Alan Grahame, for once grabbed the glory by deservedly winning the prestigious Golden Hammer. Grahame emerged from the shadows to lift the biggest trophy of his career, leading team-mate Phil Collins from start to finish in a run-off for first place. After battling his way past Preben Eriksen and a very disappointing Erik Gundersen to take what proved to be a crucial second place in Heat 4, the ever-popular and consistent Grahame reeled off three consecutive wins to put himself in pole position. He needed just two points from his last ride to clinch an outright victory but had to be content with third after last year's winner Lance King forced his way past. That meant a run-off with Collins and although the Cradley flier was always on Grahame's tail, he never really looked like getting by."
