Other Info:
The track has been removed and the site is now a football pitch used by Corinthian Casuals FC. The outline of both bends are however visible outside the fenced off rectangular pitch area both on the ground and in the aerial picture of the site on the UK Street Map and Millennium Map websites. These seem to indicate that the track was about 5 lanes wide although I have been told it had 6 lanes but these were probably 3 foot lanes. The home straight was actually the straight furthest from the railway and the A3 and the opposite side to where the main stand is now. A 1973 Sports Council report mentions that the track was not used by any club and questioned the need to retain it. The track is believed to have existed until about 1990 as was shown on A-Z maps until the early 1990s. Further evidence for this is that the main stand (The "Tiny" Liddle Stand) was opened on 15th May 1994. The ground is in Tolworth although the postal town is Surbiton and so this is almost certainly the track mentioned the AW 1962 list of cinder tracks.
