Post by: cdakev on Thursday, October 10, 2019, 21:26:22
Swindon Speedway have qualified tonight for the play off final by beating Wolves over two legs.
They ride away at Ipswich on Monday and will be at home to Ipswich on Thursday.
Get down to Blunsdon on Thursday night to cheer the Robins to Victory.

I used to go to speedway a lot but just drifted away. I actually watched the 2 legs with Wolves and it was great.
The rain was slashing down at Wolves on Wednesday but the home leg yesterday Swindon bossed it. I think it took Wolves until the 7th or 8th heat to record a race win.

Chubbs, come back to the Abbey Stadium next week and cheer on the mighty Robins

I used to go to Speedway with my dad when I was a kid. Loved the smell, the crowd and the racing. And Swindon were always pretty good. When I moved to Scotland I was friends with a kid next door who was a Rangers and Glasgow Speedway fan so we had a mini Speedway rivalry.

Not been for years now.

If any of you TEFERS was interested in watching the Speedway tomorrow on BT sport, it's been postponed due to the weather and will now be on Tuesday night at Ipswich with the return schedule at Swindon on Thursday with a big crowd expected. Hopefully so of you lot will turn out to support the Robins

Used to go regularly in the early 70s.
Can remember walking there from Moredon, with a few of me mates, via the Fox and Hounds "offy" for a bottle of Strongbow. From Haydon wick it was all fields and more than once farmer Tanner blasted warning shots from his 12 bore as we cut through his cornfield. Always used to sneak in the cheap side by standing on an oil drum then climbing over the wal ,sometimes to be chased by a whitecoat. Very unusual for agro at speedway but it "kicked off" with Exeter fans once, something to do with Ivan Maguar(spolling) being a bit of a cunt I believe.
Sorry for the ramblings, I am begging to sound like Reg :)
Happy days and good luck to the Robins this week.

Always a grudge when Billy Sanders comes to race Crumpie! Anders Michanek was always a bit good. As was Denis Sigalos and Jeremy Doncaster.

Yes i remember those days. I don't think anyone at Swindon liked Billy Sanders, but Denis Sigalos was a good rider.

Well done to them, my son works for the Abbey Stadium and he was over the moon, helps put Swindon back on the sporting map.

Many congrats.

Also my sister in law and brother in law are massive Poole fans and it really fucking pissed them off, so much kudos :)

Cycling home in the rain tonight I for some reason thought of this thread and remembered John Louis! How could I forget John Louis being one of the best Ipswich riders ever!

Chris was starting to get good, but a couple of horrendous crashes and injuries put paid to that.

His brother in law Mark Loram was better and became world champion in 2000
