California Speedway - a Memory of Wokingham.

I first went to the California Speedway, based at the Longmoor track, within the grounds of the California-in-England Country Park, in 1954, and went regularly, until the speedway track was closed in 1957. Speedway first started there in the 1930s. Does anybody have any old photos, programmes or other ephemera/souvenirs connected with the California riders or team, known as the 'Poppies'?
