    Speedway Promotion or Lack of it.

    Thanks. Must have missed that news. Typical, had a bit of time on my hands and thought the Star would be a good way to pass the time But with around 200,000+ people passing through every day it is an opportunity missed

    New Forest Training Track 1958-1961

    Ringwood was the place I was thinking of, which is why I asked if it was known as something else. This seems to be a totally new (to me) track

    This is a new one for me. Did it go under another name perhaps ?

    At Heathrow today and Thought i’d see if I could get a SS at W.H Smith’s at one of the major hubs in the country. No luck, I ended up buying Football 2020, a season preview instead

    Three meetings in one day

    I used to love my Saturday trips up to Vojens, with an 80cc meeting in the morning (the days of Rene Bach,Jepsen Jensen, Michelsen and Mikkel Beck) and then an hour or so later a meeting on the big track with a visit to the Vojens bakers beforehand to get a coffee and some lovely cakes. Lovely summer ride up and back away from the motorway

    Three meetings in one day

    As the inspiration (maybe) I have managed it at least once, possibly twice, but as I said in my original the one that springs to mind felt like a cheat. Although I did do 3 meetings at 3 different tracks, 2 of those were at the Esbjerg complex where the 80cc track is just a 100 yards or so away from the 500cc track. Then afterwards on to Holsted I’d imagine it is possible often on a Saturday in Denmark where there are a number of tracks all relatively close to each other

    A number of reasons given in Homes of British speedway At Poolstock there was a dispute between the speedway and greyhound people. The team transferred to Fleetwood for the 1948 season and the control board refused a license to run open meetings. I’d guess when they ran a few meetings in 1960 crowds weren’t that good At the other track the control board suspended the license in August 1952 and the next season some amateur meetings were held in front of poor crowds and then the promoters I’ll health put a stop to it all. Then discussions by others for 1954 broke down due to monies owed from 1952

    I did 3 meetings once or twice, but I remember it was a slight cheat in a way, as two meetings were at the same complex at Esbjerg. But two completely separate tracks a hundred yards apart, then off to Holsted later

    Even we missed the good times when you could make a few Bank Holiday meetings without leaving London. Think some riders did make 3 meetings, fans could probably make more if they didn't watch all the heats

    We go Stateside for something a bit different. Small track, like a Danish 85cc track at East Coast Speedway

    Subtle use of the English language seems to baffle some on here
