The Internationale 1964
By Tracy Holmes

One Lone Star Kiwi lined up at Wimbledon on August 3, Barry Briggs hoping to ride off with the 1st prize, a brand new JAP Speedway bike. The night was sponsored by Embassy cigarettes, 'The best in smoking with gifts for everyone.' And he nailed it!

Unbeaten after 4 rounds, Briggo could afford to cruise around behind Ove Fundin in the last heat and still win by 2 points.

Fundin himself shared overall second with the Super Scot, Ken Mckinlay.

'Speedway Star' reported that the audience was over 16,000. "Not bad lad, not bad at all!"
