Scunthorpe Speedway
Scunthorpe Speedway
Former model airplane club off the east side of Normanby Road, Scunthorpe, converted into a speedway circuit in 2005 as a new home for the Scunthorpe Scorpions. Scunthorpe's earlier speedway club, the Scunthorpe Saints, raced at Quibell Park athletics stadium from 1971 until 1978 when speedway was evicted after much heated debate about the condition of the track. A new purpose built circuit (apparently with almost non-existent facilities) was provided at Ashby Ville until the Saints disbanded in 1985.
