Rye House 1946
Rye House is a track, North of London, that the DTRA regularly race at and rent for practices. To learn it has such history is great.
We race there on Sunday 21 September.
I find it interesting, that while US servicemen went back to California and set down the ground rules of what it is to be a motorcycle (and hot rod) rebel - rules still being mirrored by real and wannabe outlaws 70 years later - the British returned home and raced. Many of them raced on makeshift ovals on the latter years of the war.
We have a feature on 1939-45 warzone speedway in Sideburn 8. G
