Speedway…..such a fantastic sport! It’s bought so many people together. How we like to tell riders when they’re racing either from the pits of terracing,
“Now go under him, now around the outside”
These guys entertain us. Very few earn a decent wage for risks they take. They race a motor cycle because they love doing it. As with any motor sport it’s dangerous. Some have had awful life changing injuries, some have paid the ultimate price.
In June 1979, it was a Four Team Tournament at Hackney Speedway. That night Vic Harding would be one of the riders who would pay the ultimate price. Vic was involved in a horrific crash with White City’s Steve Weatherley, in which Vic lost his life and Steve would be confined to a wheel chair for the rest of his life.
RIP Vic, gone but not forgotten and your still very much in our thoughts
