The 1950 and 1953 World Final winner presented British SGP champ Chris Holder’s trophy at the Millennium Stadium on August 25 and remains the principality’s most successful speedway son.

The Port Talbot-born star, who married former Olympic skater Pat Devries, is a Wembley Lions legend. He spent his entire career racing for the club, winning five National League championships.
