Defunct Speedway Tracks

 

 

 
Ulster
Speedway
 
(Windsor Park)
 
Ulster Speedway, Windsor Park, Donegall Avenue, Belfast, Northern Ireland
Speedway was restricted to 1928.  The Venture was beset with problems as the promoters were refused a racing permit and all of the riders taking part in the 29th September 1928 unauthorised meeting were fined 1.00
 
Speedway Researcher's Jim Henry has sent me some items (see below), I have been able to start a new page in the A-Z

Smoky shows the local lady how to broadside a bike.  Her bike looks a little on the heavy side for motoring sideways around the bends, perhaps she enjoyed the occasion!

Scotland's Cyclone (Norrie) Isbister and Drew McQueen show how it was done on Douglas machines in the early days of the sport.

Two of the better bikes in use in 1928 which would likely have featured in races at Windsor Park.  A Harley Peashooter closest to the camera and a Douglas taking the faster outside line.
