Classic Speedway Venues Past & Present (Hardcover)
Attending a sporting fixture for regular supporters and occasional visitors alike, represents a real sense of occasion. Many fans, whatever their sport, have time-hallowed pre-match rituals, favourite areas of a stadium, and a liking for sharing the experience with other individuals, with whom they may have stood (or increasingly, sat) for many years.
Speedway today – and over the 80-plus years since it was introduced to Great Britain-offers a quite exceptionally varied range of stadia-a variety enhanced by the fact that a majority of its venues were originally designed for other sports.
This is a highly personal and richly illustrated exploration of more than 50 highly individual homes of speedway, including all of the UKs current tracks and a selection of iconic venues from the past.
