THE OVE FUNDIN TROPHY

Ove 'The Fox' Fundin is one of the giants of speedway racing. A combination of tenacity, temperament and talent carried him to the very top in the sport where he boasted a unique World Championship record. They called him The Fox because he had flaming red hair, and he was hot enough to win the supreme individual title five times - one fewer than his great New Zealand rival Ivan Mauger - and he stood on the World Final rostrum for ten consecutive years following his first title win in 1956. He also led his Swedish team to victory in the first ever World Cup event back in 1960, the competition now known as the FIM Speedway World Cup.
