This is the WRSA Trophy for the winner of the British Final won last May (2009) at Poole. Newcastle Diamonds may not have competed at the top rung of UK speedway but we certainly brought out the best in a large number of riders whom went on to greater things in their speedway careers Napier New Zealand: Jan 2009 Bob Andrews, Ronnie Moore & David Bargh...
David Lomas says: Hi John, I can put another few names to the photo of the WVSRA Eastern Region Lunch at Norwich 2011 if you like? Bert Harkins says Hello John, Sorry I can't name all in the photo, but here goes with the ones I know Back Row;- Colin Pratt, ? Jimmy was a member of the World Speedway Riders Association and will be sadly missed. The association had a rider by the name of Jack Bibby. Still no doubt, the names of the rest can be filled in.. During his long career Jimmy rode speedway for Wembley, Oxford and Hackney, eventually retiring in 1970.The bike ousted the Douglas before the coming of the speedway JAP (1931)which ended the reign of both Douglas and the Rudge.111 is Terry Stone: 31 is Chris Sindole on a 500 2V Jawa. If you are in touch with Barghy ask him to email me John Alan said: I knocked the throttle back and she dropped, I fell across the tank, when I opened the throttle to recover, she lifted again then dropped again, Its the only time I got to the turn first, I don't think anyone else would come near me, as you say the face says it all.He is wearing the Osnabruck Race bib given to all the English riders who raced there... Jean and Terry Stone, Terry is president of the WSRA 2009. The JAP could be a real handful, it was like riding a three legged camel, The power and sound with that 2" open pipe is awesome, when you opened the throttle nothing much seemed to happen, then all of a sudden the power came in and your head would jerk backwards, if you closed the throttle too fast, because of the high compression engine the bike would almost stop and your head would now jerk forward, it was like whiplash.....that's a bit exaggerated, but you know what I mean, the 2 valve Jawa was smoother than the JAP, well, that's how I found it The modern day lay down is a lot smoother still, I haven't ridden them much, as team manager, after a win I would borrow one of the lads bikes and go round with them on the victory parade, then I used to try and have a lap burning round before I went back to the pits.
