Speedway has taken place at two venues in Buxton, Buxton Stadium and Buxton raceway, since 1994. The first meeting was held at the Stadium on the Leek road on 28th August 1994 and was to result in a 39 all draw with near neighbours Stoke Potters. They joined Stoke and others, including Linlithgow, in the newly formed British League Division 3.

The venue was to only witness one more year of racing, with the final meeting taking place on 21st October 1995, albeit a successful one when they were victorious against Sittingbourne by 62-34.
