Record six-time world champion Ivan Mauger is being treated for cognitive aphasia, a communication disorder.

The New Zealand-born, Australia-based maestro won six speedway titles between 1968 and 1979 – a record equalled only by Swedish sensation Tony Rickardsson.

Mauger also claimed world longtrack crowns in 1971, 1972 and 1976, as well as being awarded an MBE and OBE.

He represented Wimbledon, Rye House, Eastbourne, Newcastle, Belle Vue, Exeter and Hull over a combined period of 27 years, and was also a double winner of the British League Riders’ Championship (1971 and 1973).

The 75-year-old announced his retirement from public life two years ago. He is receiving daily treatment at a Gold Coast nursing home, but still manages to enjoy time with wife Raye, their three children, Julie, Kym and Debbie, and long-standing friends and associates from within motorcycling and the wider community.

We wish Ivan and the Mauger family well with his ongoing treatment.
