Reading Time: 4 mins

If you’ve ever been to Owlerton Stadium before, you’ll know that we are Sheffield’s home for greyhound racing. However, did you know that we also host more than just dogs at our track? From March to October this year, Owlerton will be proud to host races as part of 2020’s Speedway season. One of the most exciting motorsports available to enjoy in the UK right now, we’re proud to have been a part of the Speedway scene since we first opened. Believe it or not, we’ve been around for nearly 100 years! So too, has Speedway.

If you’re visiting us at any point between March and October, you might want to head on down and take in a Speedway race or two. If you’ve never watched speedway up close before, it’s a really exhilarating experience! Cheer on your favourite riders and revel in the atmosphere. You really can’t beat it.


The Thrill of the Race

speedway racingPeople love flocking to Owlerton for our amazing greyhound racing facilities. However, more and more people across South Yorkshire are taking the time to check out a few of our alternative sports and events. Speedway racing, for example, might seem a bit out of the ordinary for a lot of people. It’s a bit different to a night or two at the dogs! However, we think it’s just as exciting, in a completely different way.
Speedway racing is high-octane and easy to get into. The racers we host here are always ready to tear around and put on a great show! It’s a fairly long season, however, Owlerton is one of the premier stadiums and venues to watch these races unfold in the UK right now. Certainly, we’re proud to be Sheffield’s most popular racetracks. For that reason, we’re pleased to present a variety of different racing experiences for all our visitors.

If you fancy something a little bit different to watching and betting on dogs, all you need to do is head down every Thursday. From 7:30pm, the racing action starts – but we open our doors at 6.30pm, so make sure to get on down and secure your place before the riders start revving up.


Fantastic Food and Drink

However, on a Thursday evening, you can settle yourself down in the Panorama Restaurant mid-racing and tuck into a fantastic carvery dinner. Our chefs are always ready to serve up some delectable Thursday night menus, meaning that if you’re hungry for more than just a bit of racing action, we’ll see you right.
