This site is not an official website for the track shown here and is neither approved or endorsed by the speedway team.
|Speedway first took place at the Norfolk Arena, on Saddlebow Road in 1965. That initial meeting was held on a shale track on 23rd May 1965. The venue quickly became very popular and the team went from strength to strength. At the outset it had a team in the British League in 1966 and 67 but rose through the ranks and by 1991 had joined British League Division one. It was in the Premier League in 1995 and the Elite League in 2000-02. Since 2002 it has been a member of the Premier League.|
|The team were Knockout Cup winners in 1977, 2000 and 2005 and were Premier Trophy winners in 2006.|
|The first greyhound meeting took place on the Saddlebrow Greyhound Racetrack on 27th August 1951 and early speedway meetings did take place at the track, including one on the 7th September 1952.|
|At various times the team has been known as the Stars, the Knights and the Silver Machine Knights.|
