Very strange explore for me this was, seeing as not 7/8 years ago i was sat in the stand here watching the Stock cars and wandering round the pits!
It's been around forever, initially starting in 1928 as just a dirt ring with a couple of shacks, it's now a small capacity stadium. Holding everything from the Speedway championships, to the F1/2 Stock car championships. It closed it's doors for the last time in early 2017, and is currently under plans for redevelopment. There has been a massive back lash and protests towards it being demolished, which is still going on as we speak. Sadly, i think it's a bit too far gone to be saved now...

Very very dated, my Dad remembers it being dated as hell when he used to come here back in the late 70's and early 80's....

Interior is in a bad way now too. My friend came here about 4 months ago, it was in much better shape then!

It's a shame it came to this really, had it been managed and cared about properly it'd probably still be going.

Nice to see an update after the last onslaught of pikeys were turfed out a month or so back - looks as if they've made some efforts to board things up now at least.
