This site is not an official website for the track shown here and is neither approved or endorsed by the stadium. I am indebted to Richard English for the scans of badges on this page.

The greyhound track at Peterborough is situated at 0° 13' W 52° 34' N and first opened for racing in 1930. Greyhound racing has taken place at the Fengate track for some considerable time but, prior to moving to their East of England Showground venue in Alwalton, the speedway enthusiasts had hoped to move to Fengate.

Track Records, as of September 2014, are shown below together with an indication of how fast the time is in comparison to other tracks, both for currently open and defunct tracks, in the UK. Ratings are between 0 and 100, where 100 is an extremely fast time and reflects the speed of the track, tightness of the circuit and quality of greyhound visiting the tracks.
