These pages are dedicated to the brief but colourful history of Hastings Speedway which existed in the late 1940s. Research into the events that surrounded the club is still continuing and more will be added as time goes on. Come back frequently.

Hastings must have the very few speedway stadiums where over 50 years on, much of the original cinder track still remains along with many of the clues to its former glory.

May the spirit of Hastings Speedway and the bravery of its riders live in your fondest memories forever.

This whole local Hastings community was deeply saddenned by the news last year of the tragic and untimely death of local rider Lee Richardson in an horrific crash whilst racing in Poland.

A superb rider and and really decent person.

RIP Lee
