Mauger was a supreme practitioner of his calling in a career that lasted from his first competitive ride in 1955 until his last appearance in 1986.

His world championship titles came in 1968, 1969 and 1970, then again in 1972, 1977 and 1979. He appeared in 14 consecutive world finals.

Mauger was the dominant figure in British speedway during the 70s and he also won numerous other world titles, including three long track championships.

He also captained and coached New Zealand to a world team title in 1979 and rode injured to secure crucial points toward the end of the meeting.

Since retiring from racing, Mauger has been a leading figure in speedway promotion at home and around the world.

Kevin Skinner

(1927 - )

Skinner was one of the great All Black props of the 40s and early 50s but his fame almost entirely centres on his coming out of retirement in 1956 to bolster the New Zealand pack against South Africa in one of the most tumultuous series New Zealand has seen.
