SILVER JOINS HALL OF FAME

KENT promoter Len Silver has become the second inductee into British Speedway’s Hall of Fame.

Silver, 89, won the 1962 Provincial League Riders’ Championship in 1962, but after his racing career was cut short by injury he turned to promoting two years later.

Since then, he has worked at an extensive list of tracks including Rayleigh, Crewe, Sunderland and Rye House, and also had a stint as GB/England team manager in the 1970s.

Silver joined forces with Roger Cearns to bring professional sport back to Kent, with the Central Park stadium opening to speedway in 2013 and the club advancing to the Championship this year.

He was presented with the honour by current Kings skipper Scott Nicholls prior to Tuesday’s home match against Eastbourne – with his team going on to win on the night.

Silver said: “When I was presented with a Speedway Hall of Fame memorabilia before the meeting against Eastbourne started, I just knew that Lady Luck was shining on me.

“It isn’t a common award and I am gobsmacked that I was chosen to be in the Hall of Fame, and I am humbled by the honour.”
