Speedway fans who used to get their weekly ‘fix’ at the now sadly defunct Custom House stadium will be interested to know that a new DVD called West Ham Speedway Memories is to be released in March.
Retro Speedway, who are producing the DVD, have tracked down numerous former Hammers riders for nostalgic interviews, plus new witness accounts of the 1970 Lokeren Road disaster, which killed five members of the West Ham party.
There is brief archive cine footage of racing at the Docklands venue, although the publishers are keen to obtain any other film action taken at the Custom House trackwhich could be converted for use on their DVD.
Anyone who can help should phone Tony McDonald at Retro Speedway on 01708 734502 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also pre-order the DVD for £16 by phoning the above number or by going online at www.retro-speedway.com.
