The track was in Moorville Park, Kingmoor, Carlisle, in Cumbria 1937
The Stobbart brothers (Rol and Maurice), built a 440 yard circuit
near their home in Cumbria they hoped to introduce speedway to
Carlisle but unfortunately it never came to fruition. There was
only one meeting held here. It was staged on 18th September 1937.
The winner of this
meeting was Liverpool's Tommy Price.
This is an 1937 ordinance survey map showing the Kingmoor
Brickworks track which was re-developed after world war 2 as a
housing estate. If you have any photos or can scan a programme, I would love to see
JAP engined bikes dominated speedway but earlier
machines by Douglas, Rudge etc may have graced the Carlisle track in its only meeting in
If you can supply any stories, scan any pictures, programmes or badges
from Carlisle Speedway, please send
me an email John
