"Only recently got into speedway and being a Boston lad I'm gutted I never got to see any speedway in my local town. We brought the Braves back for it a bit a few years back but it never really hit off. My Dad was a big fan back when this stadium was around, so sad I can't even visit the stadium where it once stood. "
"Good fast track - remember Rob Hollingworth tanking round here. Good visibility but a bit out of town. We could do with more of these kind of stadia."
"Just came across this article. Me and my mate hitch-hiked to Skeggy for a few days back in the 70's. On the Sunday Boston were at home to my beloved Brummies in the second leg of a cup match. We hitched back to New Hammond Beck Road and pitched our tent on an embankment outside the stadium which I think overlooked bends 1 and 2. Our intention was to go into the stadium but we had such a good view we watched from the embankment. We witnessed a great meeting as Boston stormed into a 14 point lead only for Brum to fight back and earn a draw and won the tie on aggregate."
