Book Description

1 Mar 2007
Bert Croucher, Bernard Crapper, and Todd Wiltshire are just a few of the stars who rode for the Cheetahs, participating in the good times and the bad, from the threatened sale of the stadium itself to the record winning team of 1986. This work follows the journey of the Cheetahs from their first meeting in 1939 to the end of the 2006 season.

4.0 out of 5 stars For fans of Oxford Speedway 3 July 2014
By Keith Lawson VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
For fans of Oxford Speedway, this is obviously a niche book. Great content for nostalgia. Would have liked some action photos and not so many portraits. That way, one could see the stadium in the photo - seeing as how this might never run speedway again. Another lack is an index at the back - this is unprofessional for an author and publisher!. It would be so useful to look up riders if one can't remember the year they rode for Oxford AND for riders of teams visiting Oxford. But for Oxford Speedway buffs, there is no other book like this - so buy and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oxford Speedway History 30 Jan 2013

A well written book that describes in detail the full history (so far) of a team for many years in the top flight, but whose record was mixed. Well worth buying if you are interested in speedway history.
