Cycle Speedway Teams Down the Ages
Middlesex: South Ruislip Vikings
About the team
Team formed in 1947.
First set of breastplates were made from the blinds from four sets of railway carriages that mysteriously disappeared on the journey back from the Wembley Speedway Stadium. A week later an impressive set of tops painted black with a yellow vikings helmet appeared, kindly made by one of the unsuspecting mothers.
