Veteran speedway

Blast From The Past was started by Colin Smith in the early 1990s after a request to show modern day supporters what speedway was like in the 1950s and 1960s. The riders are ex-professionals or enthusiasts, and over the years have appeared at most speedway tracks across the UK. The format of the racing ranges from individual riders battling it out in the race jackets of often long forgotten teams, to four man-per-team challenge matches and best pairs events.
