“Great family fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We went on the August Bank holiday and it had the extra race with caravans and what a great afternoon to be had..
Only downside was you had to queue to get a drink and something to eat and this was a long wait, but the staff worked very fast so if you go take your own food and drink..
Good day out....

“I saw seventeen caravans destroyed. Love it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Foxhall Stadium is a fairly bland and small speedway on the outskirts of Ipswich. Recently they've added grandstands, which up the capacity and give a much better view. The food is as you'd expect at this sort of venue - Pretty low quality, but the prices are very reasonable. Beer is again reasonably priced, but often warm. However, this is getting an "excellent" rating purely based on the entertainment. I saw seventeen caravans destroyed in minutes, and on a bank holiday weekend to boot. Perfect.

“Great Venue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Have been here often over the years, this year we met grandsons (from south of England) for world final. We enjoyed this very much. The site has been improved over the years. Quite expensive tickets but worth it for entertainment value. Food more expensive than on an ordinary night shame they had to do this when more food was sold but that is business for you. All in all was a good time and will do it again next year.

“Wonderful, kids loved it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

It was very exciting, my kids loved seeing the cars bash and smash, the fireworks were great end to an evening. The only draw back is no proper seats so when we went in the colder months was freezing and left early so I would advise taking your own seat
