I don't think Speedway for Peterborough would exist if that happens. Could you imagine the fans dismay going from the Showground to a tiny track inside the greyhound track which is already quite small at 370 meters. Would be about the same as Oxford or Rye House. 

Peterborough fans just wouldn't watch it

Thought they had finished greyhounds all together and were exploring other avenues.370 metres would be a good size track.

Not sure if it's been discussed but could speedway for Peterborough be moved from the show ground to the greyhound stadium? Has this ever been explored? Seen today they have cancelled greyhound racing and are looking at other opportunities 

Yes it was explored around 1969 at least a year before speedway started at the showground by then Leicester promoter Ron Wilson I don't what conclusions came out of  it but as far as I know he was the first to explore the possibility of speedway in Peterborough

I've never been to the facility myself so have no idea on size but its online today they are exploring other uses for it as they are stopping greyhounds

Situated in a built up area quite close to the town centre with both commercial and residential buildings, think the favourite has to be land for housing development,

The Perkins are 2 of the most cleverest buissness Men you’ll ever meet, there as tight as a ducks ass . They don’t give a penny to anybody If they can help it and always make out they have no money . There not stupid they won’t be paying there trainers a penny now and don’t be surprised come next year they’ll be having a change of heart.The last thing they care about is the dogs , trainers, and owners

Would be some very long stand off then if Chapman was to try to negotiate moving the Panthers there,  not that he would mind you .

Greyhound trainers have had a rise of about 50p per race over the last 10 years. It's had a lot of 4 dog races recently, as the trainers are going elsewhere. The stadium was making loads of money through entrance fees, drink, food & the tote, with better crowds than speedway. Scoobydo is on the money with building land in my opinion.

You could be right, but it's a strange business strategy to run a business down, when you are trying to sell it. A lot of planning applications have been turned down, but accepted at a later date.

question is, why is it up for sale

 

1, been told season is over

2, been dropped before a wheel is turned

3, told Peterborough to stick it and just going to do Sweden and poland

 

either way not the most sensible thing to post
