Speedway and Greyhounds didn't stop because people didn't go. Greyhounds was proved to be making a profit after the closure. The property developers who purchased the stadium pulled the plug because they were sure they would get planning to build houses there. Since then a supporters group and the OCC have battled to stop that happening. The owners are still sitting on it still believing they'll get what they want and they might!!A football pitch surrounded by a dog track and then a speedway track would be a absolute disaster for the club. Every ground I’ve ever been to where the pitch is surrounded by a running track or whatever has been an atmospheric library. Especially behind the goals as it’s miles away.
Sadly and I know many will not agree. If speedway dies because people didn’t go. Then what’s the point in it being resurrected. Same with the dogs. I remember a time when thousands went. But it’s just not that mainstream or interesting to be sustainable.
There could be a similar scenario going on at Grenoble Road!
