Dream Team : Stuart Moore

I was first taken to Boston in 1970 with the family as a baby and supported the Barracudas til their New Hammond Beck road demise mid 1987. These days we travel to Lynn to watch either the Barracuda-Braves or the Kings Lynn team when work commitments allow.

GundersenLawson

Erik Gundersen
This man was just a tremendous rider and I was lucky to see him break the Wembley track record at the greatest ever world final. I was also lucky to see him win in Vojens on that wet Saturday afternoon in the late eighties. On the day of his crash we were stood on the first bend and watched in horror as the crash unfolded.

Henka Gustafsson
This is the man you just willed to miss the gate and more often than not, in his Lynn days, he would come up trumps mostly on the run-in to the line. Not many people beat Hans Nielsen around Saddlebow Road but I remember vividly Hans trapping and both Henka and Mark Loram passing the Danish Professor.

Bruce Penhall
It was a great loss to the speedway world when Bruce pursued his career in Hollywood and, as mentioned before, I was there in 81 when he had some great races to clinch the world title with Ole Olsen and Tommy Knudsen. Such a great rider and showman, I just couldn't leave him out.

Joe Owen
Joe would come to Boston every year and clean up. I remember him riding against Robert Hollingworth in the silver helmet at Boston and in the decider beating Rob by 20-30 bike lengths. Saw him win the NLRC at Wimbledon twice too. Like Erik a horrendous crash ended his career and he was sadly missed.

Steve Lawson
After trawling my mind for the number five I have come up with Mr Glasgow speedway. I think he was the all-time top points scorer, certainly for Glasgow, if not the whole league - although I do stand to be corrected on that. He was another man who would come to Boston and do well.

Tony Featherstone
I have gone for genuine reserves for 6 and 7 and Tony was a great reserve for the Barracudas. Unfortunately he was always visiting the fence to, mostly as the innocent party and I now know he is having tremendous difficulty with his back still to this day. He was a good points scorer wherever he raced for us.

Peter Chapman
Another local lad to Boston and this man was destined for big things. Seemed to lose his way a little somehow though but would regulary rack up big scores at most tracks in the second division.
