The Nuneaton Speedway Supporters Club is independent and open to all speedway fans.
We offer regular events featuring guest speakers from all walks of speedway life. All proceeds from the events are used to support and encourage young British speedway riders. We work very closely with Neil Vatcher and sponsor GB Youth Speedway.
Everybody welcome, non members £3. All proceeds to the GB Young Lions U16's unless we host a special meeting.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are unable to hold any guest evenings at the Brandon Club. We will get back on track as soon as things return to something like normal. In the meantime please take care and stay safe.
Keep in touch with us on Twitter: @NSSCspeedway and Instagram: nsscspeedway
We will endeavour to stir some happy memories as we share old photos from Brandon and afar.
Our commitment to British Youth speedway in 2021.
It has been over a year now since our last meeting at the NSSC but we are able to maintain our support for GB Youth Speedway. This year we will be donating £2000 to support the foundation that the future of British speedway is built upon.
Our funds are normally generated by members and friends who support our events but more recently they have been supplemented by the sale of memorabilia rescued from Brandon and donated to the Club by Coventry Racing Club Ltd in 2016. Of course none of this is possible without support from the speedway fraternity. So thank you to all the riders, referees, promoters and media who give up their time to entertain and educate us and in turn support British Youth speedway.
Here's hoping for a more normal and successful 2021 season!

We have also had a windfall from the sale of memorabilia rescued from Brandon and donated to the NSSC by Coventry Racing Club Ltd.
Ben Fund evening at the NSSC 2018
An interesting, absorbing and emotional evening with special guests; Paul Ackroyd, Garry Stead, Adam Roynon and Ricky Ashworth raised a total of £500 for the SRBF.
We were also able to re-unite Ricky and Garry with their 2006 British Final race jackets which were rescued from Brandon before its closure.
A Celebration of British Youth Speedway at the NSSC (2016)
The Young Lions Management held a “Celebration of British Speedway night” at the Nuneaton Speedway Supporters Club, Brandon, Coventry on Saturday night to celebrate the success of all the 2016 British Champions.
With over 100 people in attendance, which included 6 of the 7 2016 British Champions, Danny King (Senior), Josh Bates (Under 21), Max Clegg (Under 19), Kyle Bickley (500cc Youth), Nathan Ablitt (150cc Youth) and Dan Thompson (125cc Youth).
The 250cc Youth Champion Leon Flint unfortunately was unable to attend due to a family illness.
Steve Brandon from Sky Sports compared the evening, and did a fantastic job interviewing the 6 British Champions who were in attendance, and along with GB Youth Boss Neil Vatcher, a number of the British Youth Sponsors.
Vatcher said, “Saturday was yet another first for the Young Lions to organise such an amazing and enjoyable evening and would like to thank the members of the Nuneaton Supporters Club for hosting us, and also to Brando for doing such a great job on the mic, and to all the riders and supporters who came along”.
“Thoughts are already in place on how we do it bigger and better next year” Vatcher said, and quoted with a cheeky smile, “perhaps we might think about organising a Big Awards night involving all of British Speedway with the proceeds going back to supporting the British Youth!”
