Quirky speedway writer Jeff Scott’s latest book on British Speedway, Concrete for Breakfast, has been short listed in the prestigious category of BEST BIOGRAPHY in the 2009 British Sports Book Awards run by the National Sporting Club.

Chosen from a strong field featuring books on boxing, F1, Golf, speedway, cycling and the Olympics, the winner will be announced in London on 18th March 2009.

Scott commented, “None of my books could have been written without the stories, comments, advice, help and support of a huge number of people from within the speedway community. It’s an honour just to be short listed for such an acclaimed prize but also to get the opportunity to try to publicise the rich tapestry that is modern British Speedway to a wider audience.”

The book can be ordered postage free (in the UK) during December from
