David J Waring

The lady who spoke to you Nick was indeed correct in saying that Frank Varey went on to manage a race track – he was Managing Director of Sheffield Speedway at Owlerton in the 1960’s when I was an enthusiastic follower (with my pals) of the Sheffield Speedway Tigers. He was frequently present at the pits while the bikes were being warmed up and always spoke to us, very keen to answer any of our questions. He wrote interesting club and league updates for the Thursday race night programmes titled “Hello Folks – Frank Varey Calling” – I still have some of the programmes!
