Ivan Mauger....RIP

Post by Poshay » 17 Apr 2018, 14:47

Yesterday one of speedway's legends and six times World Champion passed away at the age of 78 in his adopted country Australia following a battle with dementia. There has hardly been a mention in the press or TV of this sad occasion. Mauger was always the man one loved to not exactly hate but dislike strongly because of his riding style which took no prisoners. Whenever he came to the Shay with Belle Vue he gave plenty of excitement with close contests against the likes of Boocock and Boothroyd.
He will be sadly missed.

At last: his obituary appeared in today's Daily Telegraph.
They could have been waiting for Anzac Day I suppose.
