A brand new DVD with unique appeal to Berwick Speedway followers will be launched at the Bandits’ home Premier League match against Workington on Saturday, August 29.

Retro Speedway has produced a six-hour DVD set titled ‘Memories of Berwick Speedway.’.

The triple disc set costs just £16 – and Berwick Speedway will benefit by £6 from every copy sold at Shielfield Park, so by buying the DVD you will be directly helping the club.

From Shielfield Park to Berrington Lough and back . . . this nostalgic triple disc package captures the history of the Bandits’ first 30 years of racing – from the track’s grand opening in 1968, through their British League Second Division days, the successful National League era that brought the first major honours to the club, the ill-fated top flight experiment in the early 90s, right up to the start of the millennium at Premier League level.

It features a host of riders from throughout the clubs history, with racing clips and interviews, controversial moments and spectacular crashes. There are also interviews with promoters, management and staff.

Retro Speedway publisher Tony McDonald said: “It has been a pleasure working with Berwick Speedway on this and we thank them for getting totally behind the project. As everyone knows, the club is enduring tough times and we hope that in some small way sales of the DVD will help to boost Bandits’ coffers.”
