POOLE 70TH BIRTHDAY MEETING
A truly unique occasion as the mighty Poole Pirates celebrated their 70th birthday on the very day that they first raced at Wimborne Road in 1948.
We were at the very special gathering prior to the meeting as Pirates folk heroes of yesteryear such as 91 years young Ken Middleditch, Norman Strachan, Brian Crutcher, Pete Smith, Mike Cake, Mike Vernam, Eric Broadbelt, John Davis and Neil Middleditch spoke to Nigel Leahy about the special place Poole Speedway has in their hearts.
Following on from this we then filmed the meeting between Poole and Great Yarmouth as the Bloaters were Poole’s very first opponents at this iconic track.
Some highly entertaining racing was served up by the handlebar hereos of the 21st Century and we have it all captured on this fantastic and unique production.
Running time 200 mins.
