Crystal Palace Speedway


Price: £6.99


by Lionel Crossley

Speedway arrived at the Crystal Palace in May 1928 after several years of Dirt Track racing. Lionel takes us through its evolution in a series of spellbinding chapters in which he deftly captures the spirit of the era and the heady excitement of the races on the cinders.

Crystal Palace Speedway - Thrills & Spills of the 20's & 30's has been assiduously researched over a number of years using many private archives and features rare photographs.

The late Lionel Crossley was a member of the Crystal Palace Foundation's Palace Memories group and thus wrote this book both from his own personal experiences as a speedway rider and as a local historian. The pages are peppered with anecdotes of speedway stars, many of whom were personally known to the author.
