  • Steve Harland:

    "I thought it was a tidy little stadium and saw two meetings there: Newport v Glasgow when Frank Smart wiped half the Tigers team out in one meeting and a very eventful Conference League encounter between Newport Mavericks and Scunthorpe Saints. I know the track had its critics but the meetings I saw were superb and I cannot believe how quickly the deal was done to sell to a haulage company. I think the Mallet family had done everything possible to make Newport successful. I saw the Wasps riding at Redcar in what proved to be their final season and they were superb that night and looked like they had a potent team for the following year. Reports that crowds were as low as 200/300 for some meetings then you can maybe understand why the Mallett family sold the land to the highest bidder. A great loss to the fabric of UK Speedway though. "
