James Hayhow of Zambia, 1987
Born in Northern Rhodesia, James Hayhow was one of the few speedway riders, and probably the last, to emanate from Zambia. He took up racing in South Africa, and had successes at Kings Park, Durban
taking the Durban/Natal MRC 3 times in 1985. In the UK between '86 and '88 he made the odd appearance for Glasgow, Edinburgh, Rye House and Canterbury.
