Cycle Speedway Teams Down the Ages
Midlands West: Selwyn Aces
About the team
Team based in the Black Country.
In 1948 the team travelled to London by train. They rode their track bikes from Euston Station complete with gas pipe handlebars and no brakes to the match in Peckham, South London. Apparently they were stopped many times by the local constabulary, but still arrived on time at the track, with no arrests made!!
Mike Lawrence rode for Brafield.
