Mike Bacon of Ipswich Evening Star reviews Shale Trek, June 21st 2010

You know 10 years ago you couldn’t find a book on speedway for love nor money. Today it’s all totally different. But while autobiographies, biographies and re-runs of famous riders no longer with us, continue to flood the market, Jeff Scott’s look at the world of speedway has few equals. Why? Because he tells it as it is. He speaks the fans’ language and while promoters delude themselves everything in the garden is, well sort of rosy, Jeff lays it on a plate. Poorly prepared tracks, rubbish presenters, spun-out meetings, Shale Trek has got the lot. Of course speedway has many bright points which Jeff keenly mentions. But here he goes from track to track, telling and seeing things as they are. More power to your elbow Jeff.
