  1. Adam Roynon is still joining us on Thursday night (21st June) despite his recent serious arm and shoulder injuries. Come and join us and show your support for all injured riders who need a bit of financial help. All money raised on the night will be given to the Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund.
  2. The NSSC are holding a special evening to raise funds for the Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund. Our guests are; Paul Ackroyd, Garry Stead, Stuart Robson, Adam Roynon and hopefully Ricky Ashworth. The venue is the Brandon Club, Main Street, Brandon, Coventry CV8 3HW (Just down the hill from the stadium) The date is Thursday 21st June starting at 8pm. Free entry to all but we will be taking donations and holding a bumper raffle to raise funds for the SRBF. Bring plenty of money! We will also be 'returning' their 2006 British Final race jackets to Garry and Ricky. The SRBF needs your support. Come and enjoy an evening of speedway chatter and help the cause. Everybody welcome.
  3. I'm afraid we were never given a reason. This event took a lot of planning and was going to be one of our biggest events of the year so it has been very disappointing. However we do not want to fuel a witch hunt. In the end we had a great evening in the company of the ever professional Steve Brandon with an upbeat update from Jeff Davies on the latest situation at Brandon and a chat with Dan and Joe Thompson on the No Limits programme. For many years we have enjoyed great support from all walks of speedway life. Riders, team managers, referees, promoters and the media. They all give up their time to entertain and inform us and all proceeds from the events go to support Neil Vatcher and the GB Young Lions U16's. We are proud of what our little club achieves and the support we have. Our next event is a welcome return for Somerset's Debbie Hancock on 7th June (no pressure Debbie) We then have a special night on 21st June when all proceeds will be for the Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund. Our guests are Paul Ackroyd, Garry Stead, Stuart Robson and as Paul said one of his best customers, Adam Roynon. We have a couple of surprises planned and a raffle and auction to try and extract as much of your money as possible.
  4. ‪Unfortunately we understand that Keith Chapman is unable to attend tonight's meeting at the NSSC.‬ ‪At this very late notice we are doing our best to fill the guest void.‬ ‪Of course our host, Steve Brandon, will have plenty to say anyway so we will still have an enjoyable evening‬. We hope to see plenty of you there despite being let down so late in the day.
  5. Sorry. Just wanted to get this back to the top of the pile again. We are hoping for a good turnout for this event. It's very good of Keith to give up his evening and give us fans the opportunity to discuss the current state of British Speedway and its future. Everybody is welcome, only £3 entry and all money raised goes to help GB Youth speedway.
  6. For those of you who live within striking distance of Brandon you might want to make a note of this date in your diaries. Thursday 24th May, start time 7:45.

    BIG ISSUE

    I hope you've got the location maps for the European leagues. I found them very helpful in the past.
  10. We've got some interesting evenings line up at the NSSC. Starting this Wednesday, 28th March, we turn the tables on Nigel Pearson. Asking him the questions and getting his thoughts on all things speedway. Our next event is on Thursday 12th April when we welcome Poole co-promoter, Gordon Pairman, for his first visit to the NSSC. Then on Thursday 24th May (Save the date!) we are proud to announce a very special evening with the BSPA Chairman Keith Chapman, hosted by Steve Brandon. Everybody is welcome at these events with entry only £3 for non-members. All money raised is for Neil Vatcher's GB Young Lions U16's. With thanks to our guests who very generously give up their time to help us and the Young Lions we recently presented Neil with £2000 for the 2018 season. So come along and support them and British speedway's future riders. All meetings are held at the Brandon Club (just down the road from the stadium) Main Street, Brandon, Coventry, CV8 3HW Start times are normally 8pm but may be earlier for the Brandon/Chapman meeting as there will be a lot to discuss!

    Bt Sport Coverage

    How come this is still dragging on? How can riders (and teams) encourage sponsorship when they still don't know if the sponsors will get TV exposure. Surely by now race suits, bike covers etc need to be sorted.

    Coventry 2017

    Tony Steele, who has a vast collection of old speedway films, showed this race a few months ago at an NSSC meeting. It was a terrific race in front of a packed Brandon stadium and even though most in the room would have known the result it still drew gasps and cheers and a spontaneous round of applause.
  15. We are very pleased to say that we have managed to organise some great evenings for the next few months. All these guests are giving up their time to help support British Youth speedway. Due to their efforts and fans support we have donated £2000 to Neil Vatcher's GB Young Lions U16's for the 2018 season. 1st Feb. Christina Turnbull and Barbara Horley 15th Feb. Simon Stead 8th March. Barry Bishop 28th March. Nigel Pearson 12th April. Gordon Pairman Everybody welcome. Only £3 entry, all for the GB Young Lions. Venue; The Brandon Club, Main Street, Brandon, Coventry, CV8 3HW (just down the road from the stadium) https://www.nuneatonspeedwaysupportersclub.co.uk
