17 June Update:  Our 2013 AGM will be held on WEDNESDAY 10th July at the Weston Club, 1 Liardet Street, Weston ACT. Start 7:00pm. We need your support.  The reason for the date change is that the day before the AGM we have a meeting with the Canberra Greyhound Club that could lead to the construction of a track at their stadium. 

17 June Update: Has anyone wondered why we hear day after day on the largest Australian Sport News broadcaster (ABC) about Aussies in motor sports including MotoGP, Indycar and F1, although Australian competitors are currently nowhere near winning those championships, but we have an Aussie Speedway World Champion, and there is never any mention of it in the media. Why don't we start a campaign to change that?

For a start, go to http://www.abc.net.au/contact/contactabc.htm, fill in the form, and suggest they follow our (AUSTRALIAN!!!) World Champion - and the other world-class Aussies that we currently have to tune into pay TV to hear about!. In the "Subject" box, type "The World Speedway Champion is an Aussie and we never hear about it!".

I typed in the textbox:
"Why do we never hear the results of the Speedway Grands Prix on your sports news bulletins, even now when the current World Champion - Chris Holder is an Aussie from Appin NSW, following in the footsteps of 3-times World Champion Jason Crump from Mildura? Motorcycle Speedway racing was invented at Maitland, NSW, so is an Australian sport, and in recent years Australians have held the World Championships at every level, including Under-21, senior and sidecars, but it is completely ignored. Australian riders can be seen on Foxtel every week, performing at the highest international levels, but never a word from the ABC. Please change this!!"

Feel free to copy and paste!

Get all your friends to do the same. If this works, we can target the other news media.

Vale Peter Devitt -

Sorry to be the bearer of sad news, but one of the founding members of our club – Peter Devitt – passed away a few days ago.  He had been suffering from liver failure and complications for some months, but still managed to attend some of our recent Committee Meetings and provide good advice. 

The Club started as an informal group of riders based outside the Sydney metropolitan area and frustrated at the lack of racing opportunities. Peter was one of those who met in the pits at Nepean after a club day in 1980. He was already an accomplished B-grade rider on speedway and dirt track, and was very generous with his extensive mechanical skills.  After a few months in which we organised occasional informal practice days at Fairbairn (ACT) and Quamby (Young), we issued a challenge to Sydney’s B-graders for a teams match, to be raced at Quamby as a “Country versus City” challenge.  For such a meeting, we of course had to have team race jackets, but those inherited from previous Canberra speedway enthusiasts were in very poor condition, so we decided to make new ones.  Peter Devitt came up with the idea of the Bull race jacket design. He based it on the well-known Chicago Bulls basketball logo. We cut out and sewed up a complete set of eight race jackets based on one of Peter's old ones.  The original “NSW Country Bulls” became the “Canberra Bulls” when news of our successful meetings at Quamby resulted in offers to re-establish bike racing at Tralee stadium, near Canberra.

Peter was virtually an “ever-present” through the almost decade-long history of the Canberra Bulls, and could always be relied upon for maximum effort, both on the track and in the pits. Speedway in Canberra, as in so many other centres, died in the late 1980s when promoters added clay to the tracks. More recently, the Bulls have re-formed and are hopeful of again bringing speedway back to Canberra, and Peter was excited at the prospect but sadly didn’t live to see it.

      In Memory of Peter Devitt – Founding Member

 

Very sad news I didn’t know he had been crook. We had a lot of great times that I will never forget. Let me know when his funeral is and we will try and come down.

Steve Kurtz (Bulls rider).

Sad news indeed. Peter was the guy who was always there and the one whom a lot of us turned to for advice on anything speedway as most of us were very “Green”. From making the team jackets to advise on gearing, clutch set up or making our steel shoes, Peter was a gentleman and always forthcoming with helpful advice. I think his enthusiasm paved the way for the great camaraderie, racing and good friendships that developed though that era of our lives. Could you please pass on my condolences to Peter's family and friends. 

Scott McClean (Bulls rider)

I remember Peter while riding in Canberra in about 1985 & 86 I think, please offer my condolences to Peter’s family & friends.

Tony Glennon (Bulls rider).

I do  remember Peter Devitt from the old days Canberra Bulls - please pass on my memories to Peter's family.

Brian Nixon (Newcastle rider).

Peter was my best friend in Primary School at Carlton South in Sydney and we would go to the Sydney Showground together. We raced billy carts and speedway push bikes together as well. Could you please convey my sadness in Peter's passing to his sister Sue and the family. (Bob Baker, Sydney rider)

To add your memories, email john.walker@ozemail.com.au
