Defunct Speedway Tracks

The Mauger Family Statement
This is a statement we released to the press today (March 2015) regarding Ivan. Former world speedway and long track champion Ivan Mauger  OBE MBE is being treated for cognitive aphasia, a communication disorder.
The Mauger family are issuing this statement detailing the situation and will be making no further comment.

Ivan, who won six speedway titles between 1968 and 1979, and long track crowns in 1971, 1972 and 1976, announced his retirement from public life two years ago.  He is receiving daily treatment at a Gold Coast (Australia) nursing home, but still manages to enjoy time with wife Raye, their three children, Julie, Kym and Debbie, and longstanding friends and associates from within motorcycling and the wider community.

Meanwhile, collectors are warned to be wary of items of Ivan's equipment and memorabilia being offered for sale.  “It has come to our notice that some unauthorised and unscrupulous people have been making false representations so please take every care to ensure any such offers are genuine and being made by authentic sellers,” said Raye.

John says:  Ivan and I became friends over the internet for a few years before he became ill.  I am proud to say he helped me many times with my websites namely this Defunct Speedway effort and my Newcastle Speedway History website.  He supplied dozens of his personal photographs and lots of text.  I believe between the two websites I probably have amassed more on Ivan than any other site on the net!  Yes I am boasting! wouldn't you?
Best Wishes Ivan and also best wishes to your family Raye, Julie, Kym and Debbie
