Since 1955 it has hosted BriSCA Formula 1 Stock Car Racing for which it has hosted World Final events for in 2007, 2009, 2013 and 2015. Other short oval formulas such as Banger Racing also appear regularly at the track.

The stadium has been the home of the King's Lynn Stars motorcycle speedway team since 1965. It hosted the Final of the 1984 European (World) Under-21 Championship won by England's own Marvyn Cox.
