Na­tional Hot Rod leg­ends Barry Lee, Ge­orge Pol­ley and Mick ‘Duffy’ Col­lard re­turned to Wim­ble­don Sta­dium last week­end to help high­light the sta­dium’s bat­tle against de­mo­li­tion.

Plan­ning per­mis­sion has been granted for a new foot­ball sta­dium and houses on the site and cam­paign­ers are try­ing to save the venue.

As part of last Sun­day’s Clas­sic Hot Rod meet­ing, which could be the fi­nal time Hot Rods run at the venue, there was a match race be­tween Col­lard and Lee, and Lee emerged vic­to­ri­ous. They were joined on track by Scot­tish leg­end Kenny Ire­land. Lee also re­galed the packed crowd with sto­ries of Wim­ble­don and its his­tory.
