Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, John Berry gained a hard reputation as one of the most successful and forthright promoters British speedway has ever known. In 1969, he (with Joe Thurley) revived Ipswich Speedway, just as the shale sport was about to enjoy another boom period.

New tracks sprung up everywhere and speedway blossomed thanks to large crowds, major sponsors and national television coverage that attracted millions of viewers and the interest of top-selling national newspapers.
