Defunct Speedway Tracks

 

 

 
 
Blackpool Speedway
 
St Annes Road
 
 
South Shore Greyhound Stadium, St. Annes Road, South Shore, Blackpool, Lancashire staged 6 meetings in 1928 but couldn't sustain decent crowds so it closed never to reopen.  Not strictly correct! Follow this link.  The stadium is now a housing development.
 
Ian Whittle says:  Hi, thanks for the brilliant Defunct Speedway site.  Regarding Blackpool tracks, my understanding is the highlighted outlined track you show on Blackpool St Annes road map is actually the massive, former trotting track, Highfield road, and the St Annes road track is to the west, the much smaller "Greyhound stadium". Hope this helps. Thanks and Regards, Ian

Blackpool's South Shore track only operated in 1928.  Bikes like the Harley Davidson would have been winning races around South Shore in that year.
