|The Staffordshire town of Tamworth first experienced speedway racing in 1932. The venue was at Mile Oak on the outskirts of Tamworth and the meeting was held on 17th July of that year. A period of 2 years of Open racing followed at the venue.|
|At the same time as the Mile Oak venture, further recorded speedway took place at Fazeley with a meeting on 1st August 1932.|
Arguably the most successful period of racing in the town took place at Deer Park, in the Fazeley region. Its inaugural meeting was held on 30th April 1947 and racing continued until 1950.
|The team were crowned League Division Three Champions in 1947.|
