|Speedway has taken place at a number of venues across Peterborough, with early grass meetings taking place in the mid 1940's at Eastfield Stadium. By 1970 the team were looking for a new home and chose the East of England Showground. The first meeting was held on 12th June 1970 and, in front of a crowd in excess of 3000, the Panthers defeated Rayleigh by 51 to 27. Starting off in the British League Division Two, the team eventually reached the Premier League in 1995 and have been members of the Elite League since 1999.|
|The team won the Knockout Cup in 1992, 1999 and 2001and were also League Champions in 1992, 1998 and 1999.|
