Back to News
It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Kiwi Speedway legend, Ronnie Moore, who died in Christchurch over the weekend, aged 85. 

Ronnie was a two-time World Champion (1954 and 1959) and had a long list of titles spanning his career around the world. At 21, he was the youngest World Champion in speedway history. 

Ruapuna Speedway remember him as "the people's favourite" and Sandra Perry recalls Ronnie as "a very humble man".

Twice World Champion, Three times World Championship runner up, Four times New Zealand Champion, World Pairs Champion and many other career achievements - Ronnie was a truly great New Zealand motorcycle sport Icon.

Ronnie was inducted in the MNZ Hall of Fame in 2012.
