Keeping Alive Memories of Speedway Racing at the Boldon Stadium, dedicated to the Memory of Vic Harding, Jack Millen, Colin Robertson, Vic Ridgeon, Bernie Aldridge, Pauline Dent and Elizabeth Martin
Since her first visit to Sunderland Speedway Elizabeth was 'hooked', she loved nothing better than sitting upstairs at the Boldon Stadium in the company of Pauline Dent and the children.
I don't think that she missed a Match between 1971 and 1974.
After Sunderland closed we more or less gave up on Speedway for a number of years - then one day we went to Newcastle Speedway. As the bikes were warming up Elizabeth turned to me wreathed in smiles and said "we are back, the noise, the smell, wonderful".
I will always remember that moment. She loved her Speedway.
