Gävle Trotting Society was formed in 1935 and the Gävletravet trotting races have been running since 13 February 1938. The track is thus one of the oldest in the country.
The competition oval in Gästrikland is considered one of Sweden’s fastest. The oldest and most prestigious race on the track is Gävle Stora Pris, which has been running since 1942. Since Gävletravet is one of the organizers of the three-year series E3, every year also runs the race in that series here.
