The Buzz is back for Bees fans

Liam Moakes 18th May, 2020

ISSUE two of Coventry Bees’ new magazine THE BUZZ has been published today (May 18).

Reaction to the first issue was extremely positive and the series continues with another packed collection of Brandon memories and up to date campaign information.

Feature interview this month is former world champion Billy Hamill, who spent six seasons with the Bees from 1998 to 2003, including three as captain.

Tributes are paid to Czech racer Roman Matousek, who sadly passed away over the winter – with a fascinating insight into his time at Coventry from former team manager Mick Bell.

Programme Vault takes readers back to the 1965 season and a mid-May clash with Newport in the first year of the British League, whilst the story of the Elite League era continues with a detailed look back at the 1998 campaign.

There is another two-page update on the battle to bring speedway and stock car racing back to the area, the second fiendish Brandon Quiz and lots of pictures from the extensive archive of Jeff Davies.

The 24-page A5 production is packed with original content and is available to buy at curtis-sport.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=2553.
