Welcome to the Nuneaton Speedway Supporters Club

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.

Our commitment to British Youth speedway in 2020. (4th August 2020)

 

We had originally planned to donate £2500 to British Youth speedway, as last year, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic our last fund raising event was in February when normal life and the world of speedway stopped. Despite the downturn in our income we are pleased to be able to donate £1500 to help British Youth speedway in 2020. We also donated a total of £466 to the SRBF and £250 each to Dan and Joe Thompson.

 

Our funds are generated by members and friends who support our events and sales of memorabilia rescued from Brandon. 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!
 

 

 

Our special Ben' Fund evening at the NSSC in June 2019. 
 
Our very special guests were Paul Ackroyd, Lawrence Hare, Joe Owen, Bruce Cribb, Jim McMillan and our host Peter York.

The total raised by the auction was £2305 including £650 for Tommy's 1979 Bees jacket bought by avid Bees collector Rad Tomala. The total raised on the night including the raffle and collection was £2620.21. Thank you to all our guests, the generosity of the audience and the successful bidders.

We have also had a windfall from the sale of memorabilia rescued from Brandon and donated to the NSSC by Coventry Motor Speedway.

 

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.

 

 

Statement regarding the closure of Brandon (2016)
 
We are really saddened by what has been allowed to happen at Brandon but it will be business as usual at the NSSC as long as we continue to receive your great support. We will endeavour to continue to provide interesting evenings and events with the sole purpose to raise funds for Neil Vatcher and the GB Young Lions.

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!”

NSSC Rider of the Year 2016
 
The ever popular Danny King was recently voted Rider of the Year by club members. He was presented with his trophies and joined for a photo at a recent guest evening.
 
Unfortunately due to Brandon's closure Danny is the last recipient of the NSSC Rider of the Year trophy. Hopefully the time will come when we can present it again.
