Defunct Speedway Tracks


Barnet Speedway (Training)
Mays Lane, Barnet, London
This track staged training for speedway in 1929 and was sort of a D shape. The track is said to have failed the authorities testing and closed never to re-open.

This appears to be the Totteridge or Potteridge Cup 1929 and could relate to either Barnet Track ie Barnet or Barnet Bypass,  If you can supply any info please email me John

Not much yet on Barnet's training track so If you can scan any pictures, programmes or badges send me an email John
