Dream Team : Tim May

It began sat on my Dad's shoulders on the terraces of Kingsmead Stadium Canterbury, it was an instant love, unfortunately the closure of Kingsmead dampened the enthusiasm for the sport for too long, but thanks to television it's back with a vengence, and it's back to hours on the motorways, love it. There is a pattern with my selection, but it is about racing

KennettCrump

Barney Kennett
Mr Canterbury Speedway, offered sheer enjoyment each time he climed on the bike, as with most racers, gating was never a strength, but by the time he had hugged the kerb and found gaps that wasn't there, the race was on, fantastic.

Mark Loram
As my enthusism waned reports were coming through of a young fella making his mark, how pleased I am that I was back watching the sport to see this man win his World Title, a real racer who never stops trying and his standing among his peers says volumes.

Peter Collins
One World Title was scant reward for this genius on a bike, rough justice at Wembley and injury a week before Gothenburg, where he so nearly pulled it off, was a cruel blow. Another racer who didn't know he was ever beaten.

Jason Crump
The determination this man has shown impresses me, he set out as a boy with a goal that was finaly achieved, although not my cup of tea, cannot but admire someone who goes and gets what he believes is his destiny.

Ivan Mauger
Didn't see too much of him but was in Poland to see him win his sixth title and the realisation of how he had raised the standard dawned, a true profesional.

Scott Nicholls
Sheer poetry on a bike, never gives up. A good team man who got his reward with Coventry last year, a good leader who cements his team, be it with his league or International, wears his heart on his sleeve.

Ted Hubbard
Memories of him turning up at the last minute after a days work and blasting round the track, and at times through the fence, fast and furious, then spot him the next day driving around in his potato lorry, tremendous.
