7 year itch!

Happy Birthday to me!

June 2nd, 2005 was the launch and first posting on this website, 7 years, 373 postings, four books (soon to be five) later and it's still chugging along. In 2005 Bryce Penn was the NZ1 for Superstocks, Peter Rees for Stockcars. Next season is a big one for travelling if you want to catch the big titles. I've booked my trip to Christchurch for the NZ Stockcar title, Palmy Teams is definitely on the radar and if I can get off work, Nelson for the Superstocks. Season 12/13 is already looking exciting for the followers of the contact classes. Rumours that one of my all time favourite drivers returning to the sport for another crack at the NZ Superstock title at Nelson have got me saving my pennies.

Thanks for taking the time to read my website, to comment, and most especially for those that have purchased a book over the last few years. I have met a number of people following this sport over the years, one of the real bonuses that Speedway offers. I can honestly say I've never met a boring Speedway follower! A huge part of the fun of going to a meeting these days is sitting with the people you like, even people from Palmy, or catching up at meetings we all go to each season like the NZ Titles.

When asked by a friend "...don't you get tired of watching cars driving round in circles..." the answer is NO!
