"Brian Schultz"

Information supplied by Brian's wife Judy.

Brian commenced his speedway career as a passenger for his cousin Kevin Schultz about 1978 and "swang" for several seasons.

 He bought the bike from Kevin and Geoff Graetz swang for several seasons and finished end of the 82/83 season.

Shane Wade started the new season of 83/84 and he swang until end of the 84/85 season.

From there, Adrian Bird swang with Brian and was on the bike the day he was killed.

Unfortunately, Brian was killed in a speedway accident at the Port Pirie Half Mile track on Easter Saturday, 29th March 1986.
