Ivan Mauger RIP 4-16-2018

6 Time World Speedway Champion Ivan Mauger(pronounced 'major') recently died in Australia.  Highly regarded as the greatest and most consistent speedway circle track racer ever.  He devoted his life to the sport.  Ivan won world titles over 10 years apart. 
He saved his money (as a 16yr old) to buy his own speedway racing motorcycle.  (skipping ice cream and candy purchases)
Mauger consistently beat the world's best speedway racers.  His riding style was smooth and calculated.  A natural in the sport.  You can search: Ivan Mauger (Wikipedia) and read the full story on Mauger's incredible life and career . . .
Speedway fans the world over will truly miss "MR. SPEEDWAY"
