Crystal Palace Speedway

Price: £6.99

By Lionel Crossley

Speedway arrived at the Crystal Palace in the late 20s and the author 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 ā€“ the thrills and spills of the 20s and 30ā€™sā€ has been assiduously researched over a number of years using mainly private archives and features rare photographs.

Lionel Crossley was a member of the Crystal Palace Foundation's Palace Memories Group and has thus written both from his own experience 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.
