The best name a speedway rider could have had. Zenon Pleck. We used to skid broadside on our pushbikes when we were kids and shout "Zenon Pleck" lol. (we never shouted Phil Crump)

Never forget the greatest starting marshal of all time, Frank Lawrence.

I was in the crowd at Wimbledon that night!
Zenon was one of those riders that never fulfilled his promise, he was tipped to be a world champion but never quite got there. Being a Wimbledon fan though, there was only one Edward Jancarz 😉👍
RIP Zenon Plech, one of greatest

Strange phenomenon Zenon , could take on and beat the world's best on his day, but could look very mediocre in everyday league racing, can't quite understand why....

My brother and I saw Hackney beat Halifax narrowly at Halifax, the Shay in 1980. We both idolized Zenon Plech. We shouted Z E N O N,Z E N ON so frantically the Halifax fans thought we were nuts. When the Hawks came onto the track to celebrate, Zenon looked for us and waved, never forget it. We are from Cumbria and were Barrow Bombers fans. It was the only time we saw him race live. He was a proper speedway rider, loved grippy tracks,rode inches from the fence. Totally fearless. I bow to you Zenon. One of the few people younger than me that I admire. In spite of his shortcomings, Kenny Carter was another. If he had taken more notice of Ivan Mauger and less of his Dad, who knows!!. RIP Kenny and Pam.
