Club owner Rob Grant, has decided that on Sunday 22nd May, for our fixture against the Scunthorpe Scorpions, all those over 65 (with proof of age) will be able to enter free of charge.
For one meeting only, the Newcastle Speedway promotion would like to offer all Over 65s FREE entry!
Proof of age is required – this can either be a passport or a driving licence.
Co-promoter Rob Grant said, “the success of our recent ‘kids for free’ initiative is introducing new faces to Brough Park weekly, now I want to encourage the ‘used to goes’ to return and resurrect old acquaintances and gatherings. I have decided to invite the seniors of Newcastle to come as my guest, after all, we all like to re-live the halcyon days of yesteryear and re-engage with the proud heritage of Brough Park and the Newcastle Diamonds Speedway team which dates back to May 1929.
93 years ago Brough Park first opened to accommodate speedway racing, a new concept which originated in Australia. Nationally, enormous crowds assembled to witness the thrills and spills of what was termed as ‘dirt track racing’, the most dangerous sport on the planet and millions of Newcastle folk have been entertained supporting the ‘handlebar hero’s’ over the clubs long history despite the ever changing fortunes of the sport of professional speedway racing within British Speedway. Our objective is simple, to increase crowd levels and introduce new faces to Newcastle Speedway.”
Let’s SHARE and get as many people into speedway as possible!
