The winner of the 8th April 1931 meeting appears to have been Jack Bronco Dixon.  He rode for many pre war teams including Wembley.  I think he came from the North East of England.

Thanks go to Bill Madison for sending the York scans and the Yorkshire Evening Press for their coverage of speedway so many years ago.
