Keith White, son of speedway rider and present World Speedway Riders’ Association  Secretary Vic White, borne in 1956 in Hackney first started riding in 1971 at the Kings Lynn track.

As a contracted rider he had a career that saw him riding at  Peterborough Panthers 1972 Crewe Kings 1973 -74, Leicester Lions  1974-75, Birmingham Brummies 1975 , Hackney Hawks 1976-80,  Coventry Bees 1981-84, Milton Keynes Knights 1982-88 and Long Eaton Invaders 1989-90, bet he is in the scrap books of many a speedway fan; to whom he was known as Chalky.

With regards to his riding career he considers his best achievement qualifying for the Intercontinental Final in 1977, a generous complement to the other riders concerned.

Being selected for the English Lions Tour of Australia in 1977 rates as the most proud moment of his entire speedway career. 

Sadly he lists his worst Memory of his speedway years as the loss of  his good friend Craig Featherby in an accident at the Peterborough Speedway track in 1983.

Keith retired from riding after 19 years service to the sport in 1990 following a period of injury causing poor results and is no longer involved in speedway in any way apart from being a member of the World Speedway Riders’ Association. We wish him well and thank him for allowing us to publish this profile and for supplying the photographs.
