Defunct Speedway Tracks

 


 
Huddersfield Speedway
 
Quarmby Stadium, Longwood Edge, Huddersfield, Yorkshire 
Speedway was first held in the town on 4th August 1928 and although the track was there, the fans only got to see 4 meetings in 1928 and 1 in 1929.  The track was reported as "egg-shaped" making one end very tricky!  You will see from the following newspaper cuttings reference to "Dracers" and "Dracing" if you know why please email me John
 
Graham Gleave has sent me more than enough info about Huddersfield's brief flirtation with the sport, so I have started a page dedicated to the Longwood Edge venture and I have shown Graham's info below: -
