  • Paul:

    "A great nostalgic site for me. I was an ardent speedway fan during my teen years, but I had one slight problem, I was a mod and had to hide my scooter at least a mile away from all the London stadiums I watched speedway at! I used to arrive at least an hour before the first race and leave half an hour after the last race was over! But I have to admit, the rockers' birds were a lot more tasty than our mod ones! I used to date 'em and tell 'em that I'd had to borrow me brothers scooter 'cos me Gold Star had broken down. Provided that they didn't ask me any questions about motorbikes, I could usually get away with it! Oh, for those long missed days (nostalgia IS an age thing!)"

  • Doug Phelan:

    "Me and my family used to travel down each week from Oxford when the Div 1 license was transferred in the mid-70's. We used to love the big track, Gordon Kennett came into his own, just sad to witness the demise of Dag Lovaas. Some amazing memories, the highlight probably being Gordon diving between the then world champion Ole Olsen & Alan Molyneux. Bob Dugard as ever masterful in track preparation, I remember the Mirror sponsored Grand Prix series the track looked amazing, a nailed-on track record in Heat 1 we thought, and Simmo duly obliged. Great memories, even the 11.30 finishes following a double-header, school work suffered but I didn't care, thanks to all that made White City Rebels happen!! "
