Every Picture....
The 1970 NZ Championship
By Tracy Holmes

1970 New Zealand Championship

This is a rare snap of the 1970 New Zealand championship presentation at Western Springs. Left is the winner Chris Bailey from England. He beat Bill Andrew (not Bob Andrews) in the run-off. Next to him is Bryce Subritzky who was third. The young lady wearing the 2nd place sash, I don't know. Right is Ian Fullerton, the control board secretary.

Bill Andrew was unable to be there as he was on the way to hospital, being injured in the run-off, requiring stitches to his foot.

The snap comes from the collection of the late Bruce Kent.

  • Ian Harwood:

    "Chris Bailey was a New Zealander who rode for Rochdale in 1970."

  • Jim Murray:

    "I don't think Chris Bailey was born in New Zealand, he rode for England and made his debut at Belle Vue for the Colts in 1968."

  • Ian Harwood:

    "My misinformation regarding Chris Bailey's nationality came from a photo caption in the 1971 Webster's Speedway Mirror that says "Not many riders who compete in Division 2 can claim to have won a national title. Chris Bailey is one however taking the New Zealand Championship in 1969-1970". So I'd been under the impression since then that he was a New Zealander. Of course nationalities have never counted for a great deal in speedway. This was the era when Ivan Mauger and Barry Briggs rode for Great Britain in the World Team Cup."
