It's looking increasing likely Cov Bees will be leaving Brandon within the next 18 months as a planning application has gone in to build 250 new homes on the site. Next stop for the club will probably be Beaumont Park home of Leicester Lions.

......which will be their death-knell.

Must get back to Brandon one last time next season; I always enjoyed the stadium even if the track wasn't the greatest.

Yes, a nice venue (by speedway standards), but a slick track serving up poor racing. Used to go regularly to big meetings at Brandon until the lack of overtaking prompted me to stop bothering. Certain irony here: wasn't Coventry's Charles Ochiltree responsible, in the Eighties, for selling Blackbird Road (with minimal warning), thereby putting the skids under Leicester Lions? Sorry to see Brandon go, especially as the usual scenario is for teams to disappear for good once their circuit is bulldozed. The list is almost endless. Another nail in British speedway's coffin...
