NEWS: Dunfermline track taking shape

Cycle Speedway’s third track in Scotland is well on it’s way to completion, after significant progress has been made at Queen Anne High School in Dunfermline. It is the first track to be built in Scotland since 1980.

The track is the result of 3 years hard work by PE teacher Craig Masson, who secured funding for the new track with the help of Fife Council, Active Schools Fife, Sport Scotland, Fife Environmental Trust and Carnegie Trust.

Around 10 schools currently take part in an active indoor league in school halls around the area. Following on from this success, we now have a brand new purpose built Cycle Speedway track and a significant number of school children itching to get racing outdoors.

Craig Masson commented on social media: “The hope is that this track will help move the sport forward in terms of participating schools, allow the creation of a community club with free training sessions and we will have a third Scottish team to challenge Edinburgh Falcons and Glasgow Cycle Speedway.”

The new Fife Cycle Speedway track is really taking shape, photo 5 taken this week and sent in by Lee Lawerence.

A fantastic achievement for Craig, not only getting the track built, but more importantly getting bums on seats in schools. It is most certainly a fine example to follow for Cycle Speedway’s on-going recruitment drive.

This means Cycle Speedway will be getting two new facilities this year, with Astley and Tyldesley’s Gin Pit revamp well into it’s fourth week.
