Droylsden Anniversary

Recommended Posts

Just wondered if there had ever been an article in VSM regarding Droylsden Dirt Track - the eightieth Anniversary of the first meeting at Droylsden is creeping up, on 25th June 2007, and as a resident of Tameside(where Droylsden is situated), I would really appreciate some recognition for this forgotten track.

Yes there was a VSM article back around 1997. It showed the cup that Charlie 'Ginger' Pashley won and a photo of the cup with his gandson.

Thanks Speedyguy - if anyone can remember the issue number I'd be most grateful as I'd really like to have a copy of this issue. I would be intrigued to see if it has a picture of the Holy Grail of speedway in Manchester, the actual race sheet from the first meeting at Droylsden.

Why on earth would you continue to post new threads in a section for a magazine (VSM) which closed in 2008?

Here is an interesting background webpage regarding Droylsden Speedway.

Well spotted tmc. I just followed with a reply to the previous Post (but am still guilty as charged!). Perhaps the Mod should be watching for this sort of thing and LOCK the thread? :lol:

If you are looking for a programme, John Somerville might be able to help you out. You will need long arms & very deep pockets though!
