International Speedway Tournament 1973


The 1973 Daily Mirror International Speedway Tournament. Researched and compiled for ‘OWZAT Games under licence from Lambourne Games.

7 teams, 18 tracks, 19 days, 22 meetings, 66 top quality riders, 286 heats and 1,145 laps. The biggest international Speedway event in the sport’s history – arguably the nearest thing Speedway has come, and perhaps will ever come, to a soccer-style World Cup - and it came down to a single race-off that is still discussed and debated to this day!

World class riders * including Anders Michanek, Jim Airey, Ivan Mauger, Barry Briggs, Ronnie Moore, Ole Olsen, Zenon Plech, Ray Wilson and Peter Collins took to the stage in a festival of two-wheeled thrills and spills. Twenty-one qualifying matches and two semi-finals gave rise to an enthralling climax at Wembley between the hosts, England, and the potent Swedes that has subsequently been included in a list of the 20 best Speedway meetings **.

Owzat present this event in a format that will enable owners of the classic replay game, Speedway Scene, to reenact this absorbing series of clashes. Hopefully your races will be as exciting as those witnessed throughout England in the summer of 1973. Also included is a “Quick Play” option that will (if time is short) enable players to produce a result from any of the matches featured in just a few minutes leaving the “key” ones to be replayed in their entirety.

* To illustrate the quality of the riders that participated in the tournament, a remarkable 35 of the 66 riders on show appear in the ATG sets produced by Lambourne and Owzat Games.
