Defunct Speedway Tracks

 

 

 
Aldershot Speedway
 
(Tongham)
 
Aldershot has had 2 homes. Aldershot sports stadium Boxall's Lane  and Aldershot Stadium Tongham. This webpage is concerned with Aldershot Stadium Oxenden Road, Tongham, Nr Farnham, Hampshire, as I do not have anything to post for the Boxall Lane venture.  If you can supply me with some evidence of the Aldershot Boxhall Lane track, I will happily create another page. The Tongham track saw action between 1950 and 1960
 
John says:  A little bit of info has been received, for the earlier track, so I have started a page for it in the A-Z

Hi John, I ( Ken Mellor) was signed by Aldershot in 1959 having spent the 1958 season in France with the likes of Ray Day, Tommy Roper, George Bason, Geoff Harris etc;
Most of my highs and lows can be found on my rider profile on the World Speedway Riders website {VSRA}, which you have my OK to crib. Mid 1960 I was transferred to Southampton, but was out of my league. Like going from Scunthorpe Utd. to Manchester Utd. Now 75 I'm still active on 2-wheels in vintage events and usually notch up around 3000 miles a year. For the record, the date of the photo is 18 June, 1960. I`m on the outside, Ted Spittles middle and Dennis Day inside. It was a rerun heat and I finished first {honest}! Kind regards Ken
