Edinburgh Monarchs had completed their fixtures by early October and were selected to tour Poland, racing against six club sides in just over a week. Recognising that the Monarchs were under strength, the BSPA allowed four riders from Long Eaton and Newport to bolster their side. Ray Wilson and Norman Storer from the Archers and Jon Erskine and Geoff Penniket of Wasps joined their party.

Although never really likely to win any of their meetings, they gave a good account of themselves in the earlier meetings before machine problems and fatigue took their toll, culminating in a 60-18 defeat in the final meeting at Krakow.

 

Tigers ended up thirteenth in the first ever British League but this position was depressed by the defeats in their last two home meetings. Had they been able to track anything like a full team they would surely have won both fixtures and would have nestled in mid table. However it certainly was an improvement on the previous years wooden spoon! Glasgow could be pleased with their season and they actually scored more race points at home than any of the top five sides.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interesting to note also that the top four were all former National League tracks that had managed to retain strong heat leader trios!
