Speedway

Hiya,

Is there anywhere in or near London that still does Speedway? I’ve had a look on Google, but all the sites displaying fixtures seem to now be defunct.

I used to go to Wimbledon with my dad when I was a nipper, and although I know there are no meetings there any more, I’d love to find somewhere reasonably local that still does it.

Apologies if this isn’t the right forum for this - I’ve never ventured into this part of the board. It smells of Castrol R.

Mmmmmmmmm… Castrol R…

:smiley:

I’m sure the hammers race somewhere like Thurrock…I’m sure there was an lb night organised a while ago…not really my thing though so don’t know much more

Cheers!

I’ll look into that - it’s not too far, either! :slight_smile:

If you wanna have a go, you could try Sittingbourne Speedway, think we paid about £100 for the day, loads of laps and we killed a couple of their bikes and they didn’t seem to care.

Some info on here: http://www.arenaessex.com/ :smiley:

The Lakeside Hammers are London’s only premier league speedway club. They’ve invited LB down and given us reduced admission for a couple of the races too - We also carry their news.

Sittingbourne is a more junior club but as has been said they do trackdays!!! :slight_smile:

Showing my age now, but i used to get taken to watch the speedway at White City :stuck_out_tongue:

Tell me about it…

:slight_smile:

Excellent - thanks, everyone!

I think I might surprise my dad with a trip to see the Hammers next season!

That trackday sounds like fun, too - might give that a whirl… it sounds like the exact opposite of a CBT. :smiley:

[Panto shout on] OH NO THEY’RE NOT!!! [Panto shout off]

Don’t forget Rye House Rockets in Hoddesdon.:wink:

Another option might be to have a blat up the A11 to visit Mildenhall Speedway…

Never seen speedway there myself but went to a great gig there one time - Mildenhall Rock and Blues Festival 1988 :cool:
