Coventry Speedway

Brandon Stadium
 
Coventry International Motor Speedway, Rugby Road, Brandon, Nr Coventry Warwickshire. 

Coventry had always been a successful club. Action began in Brandon Stadium in 1928.  There were a couple of hiccups in their operations but, the venue became one of the mainstays of British Speedway.  Staging many important fixtures most professionally, over the years.  I think we all would like to see Coventry back in action in whatever tier of racing they have to compete in.  Any speedway is better than no speedway, is it not?
 

 
John says: The Coventry page is up and running as part of Defunct Speedway's A-Z.  Hopefully you will want to email me images of your photos, Programmes, Badges etc and/or your memories of the club.  John
