In 2009 Kenneth Emil Nielsen wrote to speedwaylife.com:
In the early 90-es an attempt was made in cooperation with Videbaek boarding school to re-open the Troldhede track. A club named Videbaek Motor Sport (VEMS) with approx. 40 young members worked voluntarily with establishing a Moto cross trail and a speedway for 500 cc. bikes around the still existing moped track and build a fine new club house.
Unfortunately the noise abating wall proved not high enough, and the site was too small to allow higher walls. Therefore the local environment authorities declined a permission to use the track. Two years work were wasted.
But the tracks are still there – so maybe, who knows ???
