"Have so many memories of Saddlebow Rd from the late 60's onwards, following the Glasgow Tigers each year to one of my very favourite away tracks - never anything less than terrific racing! Can remember one year which sums up the friendliness and generosity of the Lynn supporters. Our No 1, Jim McMillan, had lost virtually all his gear in a garage fire the week before and leaving aside the fact that he went out and beat the home favourites such as Bettsy, the home fans nevertheless filled numerous buckets via a collection which helped him replace the gear he lost. Can remember our supporters football team coming off the bus early on Saturday morning, grabbing a few hours' shut eye at the park, then changing into our strips and taking on the Lynn supporters in a typically friendly match. Love the place so much I spent my honeymoon there (King's Lynn, not the speedway track!) and 26 years years on from that STILL have only great memories of the place! Best wishes to everyone there from a getting older Tigers' fan."
"Buster and his team are to be congratulated on the job they have done at the Saddlebow Road track over the last few years. The continuing improvements show the Promotion are now getting things right both on and off the track. Whilst the track has always been acceptable the Stadium as a whole now is far more presentable and welcoming."
