The Stadia UK statement on 22nd September confirms that greyhounds will NOT return!!

However the statement also says that a small Management Team will remain on site to continue the other businesses and to investigate additional alternative activities.

actually skids i thought the statement from mr osborne was as good a news that poole speedway could have hoped for (ie"continue the other businesses") I think its pretty clear they intend to fullfill the legal obligations of their lease,so consequently no room for matts "consortium" but that wouldnt be necessary if the stadium is available for speedway anyway.An interesting point (initially raised by ts as r&r ) is what are these "alternative activities" ??

Browsed through some old, excellent Backtrack mags and found an article on Bristol (Eastville).  There was a pic of Exeter (& Bristol) promoters Wally Mawdsley & John Richards, Pat Tapson, Eastville stadium manager I believe, and Clark Osborne (connected with Bristol greyhounds ?).  Likelihood the same Osborne being discussed herewith....

With no dogs, the dog track could either be done away with or be tarmaced and changed into a motocross/stocks circuit? The speedway track could be moved out maybe? The centre green could also be used for concerts/exhibitions/car shows/Karting (like Oxford)?. No doubt there are other activities that greater minds than mine can suggest.

the greyhound track cant be changed into a stocks track skids unless the cars went around in single file! any stock car track  at the stadium (if you could  get the fixtures) would have to incorporate the dog track and speedway track,needs an established stocks promoter to take it on and finance it,they of course would need a decent lease from stadia uk.i know there can be problems with speedway and stocks working together, but personally id be very happy with stocks and speedway at the stadium,and it should make it viable for the landlords
