Despite the rain more than 4000 people came through the turnstiles, so Thy Motor Sport was happy with the entrance fee. Facts: Track name: Thisted Speedway Track owner: Thy Motor Sport. Opening meeting 1947: Despite heavy rain that made the track very slippery and difficult på ride, Thy Motor Sport got a fine debut.
