Defunct Speedway Tracks



Greenford Speedway

Greenford Driving Park, Birbeck Avenue, Perivale, Ealing, Middlesex operated 1928-1929 & 1931.  The venue was created in 1919 as a trotting track.  It was at 930 yards, far too big for speedway and I doubt "Long Track Racing" was a phrase that someone had coined back in 1928-1931!

This 1928 programme appears to be in immaculate condition.  The scan was made at too small a size so any attempts to enlarge it causes it to pixelate.

Again when I received the photo scan It had been photoshopped.  I have been unable to turn the scan back into a proper photo but maybe you like it like this anyway!

Late 1920s Bike
Many different makes of bike would have raced at Greenford.  The American Harley was very successful during the 1920s until GB's Douglas came along.
