Harrison-Park-Historic-Speedway-Track

The large flat part of land in Harrison Park East was the home to a Cycle Speedway track, an earth track about 80 meters in length and was home to the Scottish Rangers team between 1963 and 1968.  In 1962 the track was used for the World Final – the biggest cycle speedway event ever held in Scotland.  Photos can be seen here
