saving a banger track???

Post by AndyPen »

Please remove if not appropriate folks.

This place is a brilliant visit but it is the last in Cornwall as the others have been shut down. Many mates have started their career here and the fun and games is amazing. Having just seen the banger thread, anyone on here who wants to help to save our last oval by signing a petition??

Info here:

Good Luck, sadly we lost the fight to save the Spedeworth oval racing at Wimbledon Stadium the last track in London. :(

Maybe they should send it out in a blaze of glory by battering it down with a motley collection of decrepit Cortinas, Granadas and A60's..

Sign of the times I guess, but an extra signature wont harm the cause if anyone feels so inclined?

Took this pic when I was a kid on holiday in Cornwall way back in the early '70s. It's a pretty crap pic taken on an old 110 camera but I'm fairly sure it was United Downs that I took it at.
