Defunct Speedway Tracks


Rochester Speedway

City Way Stadium, Rochester, Kent.  Speedway took place 1931 (training) 1932 (open meetings) and a demonstration in 1969 was staged for council officials as part of a planning application to run in the British League Division 2.  Rochester Bombers began their Division 2 campaign with 2 away matches, only to find that the council had withdrawn approval to stage speedway at the track so the venue closed without a proper home meeting, although they did have two more away meetings.
