1950 Individual Speedway World Championship

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

1950 Individual Speedway World Championship
Previous: 1949 Next: 1951

The 1950 Individual Speedway World Championship was the fifth edition of the official World Championship to determine the world champion rider.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

Speedway riders from New Zealand and Wales appeared in the World Championship for the first time. The title was won by Welshman Freddie Williams with the pivotal heat being the heat against Australian Graham Warren. Warren and Williams both unbeaten met in their third rides and as Warren challenged Williams for the lead he was forced to drop behind Williams. Warren then hit a bump and fell which cost him valuable points and the chance to win the title.[7]

Ronnie Moore became the youngest finalist at the age of just 17.[8]
