"First of all, thanks for a great website . It is some 52 years now since I saw my last speedway meeting at Sun Street stadium. Time has not diminished my feelings for the old place and everything that went on in that compact little stadium. It was hemmed in on almost all sides by industry, and was in the centre of the city, which was most unusual for a speedway venue. Rows of terraced houses were but a stones throw from where the locals got their Saturday night 'fix' of speedway, but as far as I know no-one complained- they were probably inside the stadium! Sun Street, will live long in the memory."
