Track tribute to speedway duo

Two of the biggest names in speedway will be remembered later this week.

A special speedway meeting will take place on Thursday in Suffolk in memory of John Berry - the man who set up the hugely successful Ipswich team of the 70's and 80's.

And on Saturday fans will wear special T-shirts at the British Grand Prix in honour of Lee Richardson, the former King's Lynn and Peterborough rider killed in a crash earlier this season.
