Replacing the Speedway Post, the EXPRESS was also edited by Paul Parish. It appeared monthly and looked and felt like the Speedway Star without the results and scores. Articles looked at aspects of the sport in greater depth than its weekly sister paper and it employed the same top writers such as Dave Stevens, Dick Barrie, Cyril May, Bob Radford, Martin Rogers and Eric Linden. Its opinion pages were often a breath of fresh air and, to a slightly lesser extent than the Mail and Argus, it challenged received wisdom and, in the main, avoided fawning to the sport’s riders and ruling authorities. In 1976, one of the most readable sections was Chris Pusey’s weekly column. The late Halifax skipper was often outspoken, usually controversial but never less than interesting.
