RIP Bruce Howle
Speedway Australia and Speedway NSW/ACT are mourning the loss of a stalwart in Australian Speedway, Mr Bruce Howle.
Bruce passed away last night (August 21 2011) after losing his battle with cancer.
Bruce lived and breathed Speedway and will be sadly missed by all of those involved in the administration of the sport, and by the competitor groups he was always willing to advise and offer suggestions to.

The pair also travelled extensively throughout Australia performing track inspections and other important duties.
