The front of the Coral stand is on stilts and the current perimeter track remains banked from the speedway and stock car days. I think it would only be necessary to put some cushioned barriers in.

But he added: “I would love to see speedway back at Odsal. We want to maximise the use of the stadium and we want to attract other sports as well.

They've been inspired by being able to sell restricted view table tennis tickets at the Olympics.

It's the legacy Lord Coe would have wanted.
