“The first of possibly two meetings was promoted by the Carmarthen Motor Club at the Ammanford Trotting track on 12 September 1970, when Tig Perry won the 500cc final. The competitors in the meeting were mainly grass-track riders, in both solo and sidecar categories. Although the circuit was said to be  cinder-based the event was advertised as ‘track-racing’. Situated near Ammanford, the stadium staged trotting events until it closed around 1974. A different track was opened in 1979 at Tairgwaith and is still operational”.

(The above information is a quote from the book ‘Homes of British Speedway’ and is included here with the kind permission of John Javis.)

We would be very interested to hear from anyone who has further information about these meeting particularly if you were there as a spectator or a competitor.  It also seems that Flat Track racing has taken place at the ‘replacement’ track at Tairgwaith and information about that would also be welcome.
