Year by Year Record of Newcastle Speedway


1929 to 2004 and beyond


This section is intended to be used as a quick reference of facts relating to each of the years since 1929.  I will try and keep it accurate, so I would be happy to hear from anyone who can "put me right" where information is incomplete or incorrect.
