    Background: GREAT BRITAIN TONIGHT (SATURDAY) WON THE WORLD TEAM CUP CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE FINALS HELD AT THE WEMBLEY STADIUM NEAR LONDON.

    THERE WAS AN HISTORICAL NOTE TO THE CONTEST - IT WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT BRITAIN HAD BEEN THE HOST COUNTRY FOR THE WORLD TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP.

    MAIN CONTESTANTS AT TONIGHT RACING WERE TEAMS FROM BRITAIN, CZECHOSLOVAKIA, SWEDEN AND POLAND.

    THE BRITISH TEAM WAS CAPTAINED BY BARRY BRIGGS, FOUR TIMES WINNER OF THE WORLD INDIVIDUAL CHAMPIONSHIP AND FORMER REPRESENTATIVE OF NEW ZEALAND.

    SWEDEN WAS SECOND IN THE WORLD TEAM CONTEST; AFTER GIVING THE ENGLISH TEAM A CLOSE CONTEST. OVE FUNDIN AND BENGT JANSSON, USED TO BRITISH CIRCUITS, PUSHED THE BRITISH TEAM, MAKING THE BRITISH RIDERS USED THEIR UTMOST SKILL IN MATCHING THE CONDITIONS AND THE COMPETITION.

    IVAN MAUGER, OF THE NEW ZEALAND, BUT RIDING IN BRITAIN'S COLOURS GAVE A SUPERLATIVE DISPLAY TO ASSIST IN BRITAIN'S OVERALL VICTORY IN THE EVENING'S RACING.
