“Miserable fans”
Review of Poole Speedway

Poole Speedway
Ranked #22 of 73 things to do in Poole
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 March 2014

3 of us visited from the north for Gary Havelocks benefit meeting. I've been to a few speedway stadiums in the country and have always found the locals friendly, where everyone mingles and shares their stories, not at Poole! Wherever we sat it was like "you can't sit there" despite the seats being empty and us fully explaining that should the season ticket holder of that seat come then obviously we would respectfully move. It felt like a lot of the regulars didn't want us there despite speedway being a 'friendly family sport'.
I would'nt go again for a meeting.....a long way to travel for rudeness!

Visited Poole Speedway to attend the Farewell meeting for speedway legend Gary Havelock. The stadium is well sign posted from within the town itself.

The stadium has the usual food you'd expect with a bar as well if you fancy a beer whilst watching the action.

The home straight is a covered stand and the back straight is a glass fronted building letting you see the action without the need to venture outside. Bends 1 and 2 are uncovered and not sure if there are any facilities there, bends 3 and 4 are again uncovered with food kiosk and merchandise hut.

Nice stadium which dished up a good meeting even if the weather tried to spoil it

Home of the famous Poole Pirates Speedway, this is a must visit for any Speedway enthusiast. The facilities are basic but the entertainment value is second to none. If you haven't tried it before given it a go but be prepared for some loud noises whilst the races are on.

The atmosphere is absolutely amazing throughout the whole stadium, the music is a god mixture and the staff are always trying to help to make it the best experience possible. Will still be going to that stadium in years to come.
