Defunct Speedway Tracks


 
 
Tamworth Speedway 2
 

Tamworth have had speedway at 3 venues, this page concerns itself with track number 2 Mile Oak Speedway, Sutton Rd, Mile Oak, Tamworth, Staffs 1932-1934

The other two Tamworth venues were at: -
1. Deer Park, Watling Street, Fazeley, Staffs which saw action between 1947-1950.  and
3. Tamworth Speedway, Fazeley Rd, Tamworth Staffs 1932-1933. 
I do not have any items from venue 3 and only Roger Squire's memories of trips to the Mile Oak venue Tamworth 2 which follow below: -

 
John says:  Roger's comments have allowed me to create a page for Tamworth's Mile Oak Speedway.  I think however that Roger is a bit confused about which track he was visiting way back when he was 7!  I think he must have been going to Tamworth's Deer Park track, post war and not the pre war track at Mile Oak.  So does anyone have any memorabilia from any of the 3 Tamworth tracks to share with the speedway community John
 
 

 
 
Bikes In Use During 1932-34
 
 
 
 
 
3 British bikes were dominant late 1920s/early 1930s Douglas, Rudge and JAP but as the 1930s went on JAP emerged as the only bike to have if you wanted to win races.  Such a pity as having different bike makes on our tracks must have been more interesting for the spectators
 
 

 

If you have any photographs, programmes or badges and can scan them I would like to hear from you John
