Circuits of Gold

Television (Full Length) – 1987

Speedway champion Ivan Mauger powered and slid his motorbike around oval tracks to a record six world speedway titles from 1968 to 1979. In this documentary Mauger and his family recall his long career, from boy racer beginnings — he argues that in Spain the heroes are bullfighters, but in Christchurch they're speedway riders — to his Western Springs farewell. David Lange also pays tribute. Mauger's focus on winning shines through: "if you show me a good loser, you show me someone who consistently loses". Mauger passed away in Australia on 16 April 2018.
