Title: Speedway Stadium
Post by: Jimmy Quimm on Saturday, July 17, 2021, 09:25:28
So what happened, they told supporters that the Swindon Robins would not be riding this season because they were going to redevelop the stadium! This hasn't happened yet no updates and left wondering if speedways Is now finished and the land will be used for more houses.

IIRC, the owner has a history of doing this.

I didn't know the Robins had dropped out of the Premiership League
Sad news

I didn't know that please don't say he's another Power!

Also Flashheart I have no idea if you're familar with the Blunsdon area of Swindon but if you haven't been there for many years you will be surprised how much it's changed as there are now houses on the fields behind the main stand, right behind the pits and opposite the entrance to the car park off of lady lane.

more a subbatical than dropped out.

but I suspect they are finished. the development company are stiffing them.

who wants a speedway stadium near the houses they want to sell.

Plus speedway is so skint it's surely not viable to continue with 6 teams in the league
