Cycle Speedway Teams Down the Ages

Humberside: Scunthorpe Scorpians

About the team

Track was at Scunthorpe Hobbies Centre, Grange Lane South, and was built in 1976 by the Scunthorpe Borough Council at a cost of £4,000. The track had the best facilities in the area, with changing rooms, toilets, and refreshment area. Although being fairly small, the track had a slight banking on the corners, with a shale surface, and metal safety fence.

Both the Scorpians and the Tigers used this track.

Raced in the Humberside League 1976.

Club Manager: Doug Robinson.
