Behind Steve Bull, Sam Ermolenko is Wolverhampton's greatest sporting legend in the last 20 years. I thank him for the hundreds of nights of racing entertainment he gave myself and thousands of others. Sam was my childhood era and his racing and professionalism inspired me to promote speedway in California, where I now reside.

Thanks Sam, we add you to the list of Wolverhampton sporting legends such as Billy Wright, Steve Bull, Tessa Sanderson and many others.

Great Day, Good to see Bruce Penhall on the track again.


Sam is a true legend to the sport and will be missed as a great entertainer at wolverhampton, The photos are great.


Legend is a word used alot these days, Sam is a true legend in his own time. Wolverhampton speedway will never be the same without Sam on a bike racing.

Thanks to Sam.
