Barbara Horley, speedway referee

April 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Barbara Horley relates her experience as a National Speedway Referee

Members, Associates & their guests are warmly invited to Over Community Centre on Monday 8th April, for Barbara’s presentation to CAM on her experience as a National Speedway Referee. An accomplished speaker, Barbara’s presentation is sure to be lively and entertaining. The evening will conclude with a Q&A session

Barbara, in her own words:

My interest in speedway started when I was very young, accompanying my father & uncle to the track. Having attended speedway school nearly twenty years ago, I decided to become part of the sport: riding wasn’t for me and so I trained to become a referee. In this role I have to travel all over the country, from Glasgow to Plymouth, taking charge of meetings in all three tiers of racing
I have one other link to speedway: six years ago I began studying for a PhD and am about to submit my thesis on Speedway Racing in England from 1928 to 1965. I have also presented a number of papers on speedway at academic conferences. I can honestly say that speedway has been an important part of my life for a very long time!
