Having arrived in Britain in the late 1920s, dirt-track racing soon established itself as an incredibly popular national sport. By the end of 1928, there were over fifty tracks throughout Britain. Many venues were opened and run sporadically over the next seven decades, particularly during the heyday of speedway after the Second World War, when interest was phenomenally high. As a result, the sport has taken place at numerous locations throughout the country.

Featuring over 300 venues, this new edition of Homes of British Speedway is fully updated with new tracks, the latest track information and a host of new illustrations. Every track is afforded statistical information, including address, years of operation, length, promoters and club successes. The more important homes of speedway, for example Belle Vue, Swindon, Wimbledon and Coventry, all receive highly detailed synopses.

Compiled by Robert Bamford, a prolific author of speedway titles and editor of the Tempus Speedway Yearbook series, and illustrated by John Jarvis, a leading historian and enthusiast of the sport in the modern era, this book is an essential purchase for anyone with an interest in the shale game.
