@traxcitement Looks good, I couldn’t possibly miss this. I’ll put it in the diary.
I remember when speedway was on telly, pre Sky, when there were only the 3 channels – it was very popular then.
@marty21 it was on ITV’s World Of Sport regularly in the 70’s presented by Dickie Davies and commentary by Dave Lanning; England had World Champions back then in Peter Collins and Michael Lee. It was also heavily featured in the back pages of the daily newspapers. I don’t have Sky Sports but I am told they do a good job of presenting it on there the Sky sponsorship is currently invaluble to the sport.”
