  • John Earnshaw:

    "What a cracking looking track and stadium a very big WELL DONE to all concerned in getting speedway back to Birmingham (Ex-Barrow fan 1972-1985)."

  • Ivor Craine:

    "What is the future for British Speedway if England's No2 city cannot provide a big enough supporter base for an Elite League team at the top of the table with one of the best venues in the country. When I went to a Birmingham meeting 3 years ago most of the fans were of the generation that remembered Alan Hunt, Ron Mountford , Eric Boothroyd and the small proportion of younger generations amongst the crowd was obvious. As the generation from the good old days depart this earth there is currently no one to replace them and a major effort to attract younger fans or speedway will die with them.

    BMX events, Marching girl competitions, Local Pop groups, Talent competitions anything to attract youth to the circuits should be tried. Second halves with Handicap racing and plenty of passing could help. The most exciting races I have ever watched are handicap races in Australia but they are a rare event in the UK.

    I am sure others will be able to make suggestions but lets hope something can be done to save Birmingham and encourage the re opening of tracks such as Odsal and Ellesmere Port."
