Cook Speedway Academy

One of the most popular of the Junior Speedway trainers in the early 1980's was at that time an up and coming Speedway star from Roseville, CA, called John Cook. John went on to make an international career in Speedway. He lived in Sweden for many years and rode for Smederna, along with team mate Billy Hamill. Small world, isn't it?
