Attraction details
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We have been several times now and had a good night each time - Pre book and you can get a nice meal too. Options to sit inside, have a wander round the track and even a pit visit prior to the meet - a must for all ages

Speedway is not everyone's cup of tea. Critics will bemoan the fact that the races can be predictable, and that they slide round with their wheels facing the wrong way. What they fail to address however, is the fact that speedway is the only motor sport where you see all the action, in a 'it's all over on the night' point scoring format, with hands-on access to the stars and a very real combination of family fun and high-speed drama.

Critics who slight the sport from afar are missing out on one of England's most exciting evening's out, and the Poole Pirate's Stadium, with its aged charm makes for a sense of sporting fun and family entertainment that is so lacking these days from bigger sports, over-priced venues and money-driven egos.

I took two friends who had never previously been exposed to speedway and they have now been converted. Tear yourself away from the usual seaside delights of the south coast and spend a night revelling in the excitement of it all.

I am a regular fan and believe Poole is one of the best run speedway venues in the country with the bonus of being high up in the legue again this year after last year winning the elite league - arrive early if u want to ensure getting a car parking space. You will also need to arrive early for a seat in the grandstand which doesn't cost any extra.
