I have started a page for Southend
following receipt of some info from Colin (see below). I have
been unable to find any evidence of a speedway track in the area
so Colin's email/images are fascinating
Colin says: Hello John, just read through the interesting
article re speedway at other places locally. Just a small
point, but the Southend Greyhound Track was in Sutton Road and
not Stock Road. I do have a bit of info that may interest you.
My dad, who passed away 18months ago remembers motor cycle
racing just off Sutton Road near Sutton Cemetery in the 30's.
I have an aerial pic from that time where you can see the oval
outline of the track. I'll try and find it and forward it to
you. It's not brilliant by the way!
John says: So, do you have any info on
motorcycle racing in this location. I have drawn a blank
which makes Colin's information of the 1930s activity around
Fossetts Farm all the more interesting.
If you can throw any light on this matter please send me an email
