Ian Whittle says: Hi John,  The following might be of interest.  Regards, Ian Whittle, Milnrow, Lancs.

A Tribute to Stan Bellamy
 

Don Bellamy says: Hi John,  I have had a sort out and I have attached scans of a Race Programme in which my father Stan Bellamy won 4 races and was second in a 5th. It was also at this Whit Monday Meeting where father took the Special Flying Lap Record down to 22& 2/5th seconds and was awarded 5 shillings prize money. Father was a member of the London Aces Team and would transport his race bike on a sidecar outfit with mother on the back. Although no bike name is in the programme I know he raced a Rudge at some time. In the photo he is the rider coming through on the inside. I was loath to separate the press cuttings as they have been sewn together for 80 years, on the opposite end from the race report you will see the date of Thursday May 25th 1939. I hope this is of interest to you and your followers. Best Regards on Bellamy
PS During the war father was a Dispatch Rider and served in France ,Belgium and Scotland.

Don Bellamy says: Having just unearthed 6 programmes from Grand Central Speedway Circuit from 1939 ,I found your site mentioning the said track .  My father Stan Bellamy was a regular competitor and lap record holder several times . I also have paper cutting dated May 25th 1939 in which the reporter called out the sensational Stan Bellamy who flashed round in 71&3/5th seconds for the race, he later took the lap record in 22&2/5th seconds. Hope this is of interest to yourself and your followers. I will now dig a bit deeper too see what else I can uncover.  Regards Don

We don't know the names of the two combo riders.  I do know that neither of them is Stan Bellamy, I just liked the photograph.
