What became of the speedway track in Leningrad?

A St Petersburg (Leningrad) team competed in the Finnish League in the late '90s, but I'm not sure if they used the same track the Aces raced at.

No worries Moxey, always on the look-out for obscure results myself. Unfortunately, I can't track down the Hungarian Czaki's christian name, which annoys me greatly1

There was a Csaky (Christian name, Laszlo) that rode the 1990 Hungarian Championship, according to Loader's Annual for 1991 (covering 1990 season).

What became of the speedway track in Leningrad?

Not quite sure what beacme of it, but it definitely gone now and the grounds have been built on with probably houses or a super market, I can't remember exactly what it was.

But for certain this speedway track in St. Petersburg (formerly Leningrad) does not exist anymore.

1955 was the year the Aces ventured behind the iron curtain to Poland.The first team from Britain to do so.Ron Johnston was almost arrested as he stepped off the plane as he pulled out a cine camera!!Austrian riders Fritz Dirtl and Jozef Kamper were involved as a 60,000 sell out crowd,with an estimated 20,000 outside saw the Aces win in Wroclaw with 38 to Polands 21 and the Austrian Motor Rennklub last with 12.

Belle Vue won a second meeting in warsaw 66-42.One Polish qualifier for a later world final said he hoped Peter Craven would win as he was the idol of all polish children....

 

Belle Vue team wasPC,Ron Johnston,Ken Sharples,Dick Fisher,Bob Duckworth,Peter William,Fred Rogers and Arthur Wright from Bradford as a 'guest' :P

In Wroclaw Arthur Wright scored 12 and PC 11

In Warsaw PC 16,Johnston 14,Sharples 11 and Williams 9.Sharples and Johnston stood down from their last rides to allow Fisher and Brand(??)their first and only rides of the tour
