Our Petition and Letter of Support
The Lakeside Hammers raced at the Arena Essex Raceway until September 2018 when they were forced to re-locate after the Raceway complex closed after being sold for re-development. The club’s licence is currently on ice for the 2019 season, whilst a new venue is sourced within the Thurrock district.
Speedway, which is a fantastic, family friendly sport, has run in the borough for over 30 years and we believe that Thurrock is still a great location for a new facility and is a growing community that deserves the exciting, top class sport that speedway provides.
We have a great relationship with Thurrock Council but we still need to show local decision makers how much support the club enjoys.
Via The Lakeside Hammers, we established an on-line petition, with the aim of reaching 5,000 signatures. Please click on the image to launch and sign the petition.
Submit a letter of support
Along with signing our petition below, fans and local Thurrock residents can also send a letter of support for the return of the Lakeside Hammers to the borough to Cllr. Mark Coxshall, the Head of Planning and Regeneration, at Thurrock Council.
