CLUB NEWS: John Whiting remembered on 22nd October

On Saturday 22nd October 2016, Bury Cycle Speedway will hold the John Whiting Appreciation event, in memory and celebration of the former rider, team manager, secretary and referee, who sadly passed away in March 2015.

Invitations are extended to anyone who knew John, who was one of the true characters of the sport, much missed and often remembered.

The event will begin at Bury’s Goshen Sports Centre circuit at 1pm, where an informal series of races will take place between riders past and present. At around 2.30pm the plan is to retire to the nearby Paper Mill pub, for socialising and reminiscing of which John would no doubt have wholeheartedly approved.

All are welcome to attend, please contact Tony Mann, John Burston or email if you are interested, or simply come down on the day. We hope it will be a really enjoyable event; a celebration of a true cycle speedway legend, John Whiting.
