Dream Team: Luke Puckett
I have grown up in and around speedway, mostly supporting national league teams as I used to live close to one. However due to its closure, I am mainly based around the grand prixs now and focusing on the world championship. I supported the Weymouth Wildcats but due to their closure the Poole Pirates or Somerset Rebels are my closest teams to go and watch.
This man has been around forever and as team captain, he would be not only like a father figure and mentor to the rest of the riders, but he would provide a strong heat leading position within the squad.
Mark Loram is a former world champion and one of the greatest track riders, he would bring the edge to the team that it needs.
This guy needs no introduction, he is a record holding 6 time world champion and arguably the greatest ever, his resumé speaks for itself.
Although only young, Darcy Ward has already achieved a lot within speedway, showing potential to be a future world champion. He would be a young gun within the team but would lift spirits and give energy to the team.
To accompany Darcy Ward, the current world champion Holder, would bring another type of energy to the team.
The late and great Lee Richardson, who we lost in such unfortunate circumstances was a great man and a great British rider who would bring an experience factor to the team as well as his record number of points in the world cup series.

With his devious ways and controversial career, the 3 time world champion can bring an experience to the squad and lift the younger talent up as well as give them pointers on their riding.
