THE history of the Weymouth Speedway club comes to life in a new 124-page book which publishes at the end of October detailing the complete history of the famous Dorset club.

The book is sure to bring back many happy memories for Wildcats fans and maybe even Scorchers, Royals, Eagles and Wizards fans alike (yes the club did have FIVE nicknames down the years), as this book delves deeply into the history of this once proud club.

A club which was popular under many guises in its history, from its early beginnings in 1954 to the dark days of 2010 when the club finally folded for good.

Or was it for good? We also ask that question too!

But there are many happy times detailed in this A5 size publication which forms part of a series of publications on Defunct Speedway Tracks published by Preston journalist Howard Jones.

In the book Jones paints his own Weymouth memories and relives the times in the mid-70s when he helped shape the future of the club by ‘brewing-up’ for track workers helping to re-establish the track prior to its 1974 re-opening.

Arguably the greatest Weymouth rider of all time, Martin Yeates tells us what it was like to win trophies in Weymouth colours and his memories of travelling the length and breadth of the country sporting the Wizards and Wildcats race colours.

An interview with the man who brought life back into the club in 2003, local boy made good, promoter Brian White, also features.

Now a successful businessman at the head of his own company based in the Bristol area, White tells it how it was, while there is also an exclusive third interview in the book with former Wildcats skipper David Mason.

Mason it was who became a huge hit with Wildcats fans in the life of the second Weymouth venue at the Wessex Stadium.

The book also details the scores and scorers from ALL of Weymouth’s matches ridden down the years, together with some great stats, facts and league tables that will blow you away.

There is also great news for speedway memorabilia collectors too, with match programmes, badges and items from the club's history detailed throughout the publication.

Add into the mix some great photos from a whole host of photographers down the years and many of them unseen before from the great John Somerville Collection, this is one book all true Weymouth speedway fans will not want to pass by.
