New Rowley Park Speedway Spectacular
The Rowley Park speedway built in a Brompton pug-hole proved at its opening last night to be a highly spectacular track.
It has been modelled on the latest English speedways, which enable the drivers and riders to take bends at full speed. A thrill for the crowd was pro- vided in the first event, when E. Brecknell crashed into the fence during the first lap and was thrown six feet into the air. He was treated at the speedway for a lacerated hand. Last night's crowd was offi- cially estimated at over 5,000. The promoters are all ex- drivers. The luckiest people were the owners of houses along Coglin street, overlooking the speed- way, who invited neighbors in to share an excellent grand- stand view of the course.
