Meet your Cudas heroes

The 1982 Cudas.

Former World Champion Michael Lee will be among the former Boston Barracudas attending a speedway reunion night on January 3.

Lee’s attendance means it is hoped that the whole septet which beat Hackney in the 1975 Inter-League Knockout Cup will be back together again.

Around 70 former riders are expected to attend the function at the Poachers Country Hotel, Kirton Holme, on January 3.

The majority of the British League Two double wining side of 1973 are also expected to attend.

Other highlights will include the auctioning of an original 1970 Boston body jacket, donated by then captain Graham Edmunds.

Steve Lomas will be bringing along his record-breaking bike and footage of early Barracuda meetings will be shown.

The free event, which begins at 7pm, welcomes all former Cudas riders, officials and fans.
