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. And in the most controversial
speedway book ever written, Berry also admits - for the first time - how, and
why, he once 'fixed' the result of an international race.
