Wolverhampton Speedway - 1970/1/2
Wolves attained mid-table positions in 1970 and 1971, the latter year notable for Olsenâ€™s world championship success in Gothenberg, Sweden. Ole Olsen had become Wolverhamptonâ€™s first world speedway champion.
In 1972 Olsen lost his crown, mainly due to a first
race fall in the final at Wembley. Team-wise,
the Great Dane needed more support, and some was forthcoming in August
when Norman Hunter, a shadow of his pre-injury self, was sold to Swindon
and his namesake George Hunter moved in. The Scot was an instant hit and his guile and track craft are
still remembered fondly at
