1939 - 1948
No World Championship Speedway!
The Second World War came along.  Hitler (obviously not a speedway fan) caused untold suffering to millions of people and he stopped our world championship and domestic speedway too.  The War meant, no speedway world championships between 1939 and 1948 whilst everyone did more important things than riding around a speedway track!.

Tommy Price

Card 5 Welsh
1950 World Champion
Freddie Williams

Card 6 Australian
1951World Champion 
Jack Young

Card 7 Australian
1952 World Champion 
Jack Young
Jack had many fans as a double world champion should have!  Ivan Mauger told me that Jack Young was his hero and he wanted to emulate Jack.  Well Ivan did that now didn't he?

Card 8 Welsh
1953 World Champion  
Fred Williams

Ove Fundin

Card 16 Swedish 
1961 World Champion

This card set idea was a good one and it is a pity that the series came to an end in 1961
