About the group A Selection of Sports Stadiums that have hosted Speedway matches since 1928
Created 20 August 2012
Plough Lane, Wimbledon. One of the finest stadiums in the Uk to host speedway racing. Home of the "Dons" and the venue for the famous "Internationale" events.
I remember the track behind Gartons Seed Warehouse Being a Speedway and at a different time as a Greyhound Track.
Unfortunately I do not remember when I saw the events.
Another midlands entry, this time in Coventry

The Greyhound Track on Kirkmanshulme Lane and the famous track within the Zoological Gardens on Hyde Road have both been home to Belle Vue Speedway since 1928.
