Competition: Speedway - The Classic Era

Here's your chance to win a copy of Philip Dalling's latest book - "Speedway - The Classic Era".

About the book:

SPEEDWAY The Classic Era covers the sport's first four decades, starting with its early mushroom growth and the subsequent development of league racing, aWorld Championship, and test matches pitting England against Australia. It chronicles the sport's almost miraculous survival duringWorldWarTwo, and its astonishing impact in the immediate post-war era, when eleven million people watched racing at its UK peak in 1949.

Punitive entertainment tax and the arrival of television, brought a mid-1950s slump, but speedway fought back, first to stability and then to renewed popularity in the 1960s, the final years covered by this book.With a lively and informative text and more than 200 evocative and nostalgic photographs, SPEEDWAY The Classic Era is a fascinating guide to the days when for many the sport was at the height of its interest and appeal.

To be in with a chance of winning the book, simply answer the following question:

This picture shows English World Champions Tommy Price and Peter Craven, but who is the third man in the picture?

Answers should be emailed to comp@speedwayplus.com before 28th September 2011.

 

 

This book is also available to purchase on Amazon.co.uk
