1930 Magazines
 
 

Jim Henry has followed speedway since 1961 when he became hooked at Old Meadowbank in Edinburgh. He has followed the Monarchs and now watches their activities at Armadale.

He joined the track staff at Powderhall in 1977 and in 1989 was asked to become Clerk of the Course.  Jim served at Powderhall, Glasgow, Armadale and Linlithgow and did odd cover meetings at Berwick and Glasgow Ashfield over a 25 year period. 

The impending Diamond Jubilee saw Jim take an interest in speedway history and become involved in the celebrations in Scotland. This has grown to be a bit of a passion over the years since then. He joined the then Veteran Speedway Riders Association and helped set up the Scottish Committee. He has served as secretary to the organisation to date. 

With Graham Fraser as co-editor, Jim was involved in producing The Speedway Researcher magazine which flourished for 16 years. The Speedway Researcher web site was a spin off and this is an ever growing source of information about speedway meetings staged in the UK. Jim acknowledges he has had a lot of help over the years and hopefully has helped folks looking for speedway information. He is quite chuffed at the number of acknowledgements he has gathered in various speedway books over the years.

With co-author Ian Moultray Jim was involved in writing A History of Edinburgh Speedway Part 1 The Marine Gardens Years and Speedway in Scotland. On his own Jim wrote Glasgow's Speedways : The Pre War Years which was published by Robert Bamford. 

A retired town planner Jim has two sons, four grandchildren and a very understanding wife who puts up with his speedway activities.  

Jim hopes the scans he has supplied to John which have been placed on The Defunct Speedway website will be of great interest and maybe be an inspiration for future speedway historians.

John says: Norton was one of the biggest UK motorcycle companies and did little more than dip its toe into manufacture of a speedway machine.  Norton did not become a major player in the speedway world which was a shame.
