What is Speedway?

Speedway bikes have no brakes, just one gear, a clutch and 500cc engines which run on methanol fuel

Riders race around oval circuits of around 300 metres in length in an anti-clockwise direction. Speedway teams are made up of seven riders in each team. A team manager can decide the riding order of the number 1 to 5 race jackets, the number 6 and 7 race jackets are taken up by the reserves. The reserves are the two lowest averaged riders in the team. Each team will wear its club colours and a home team will wear Red and Blue helmet colours, whilst the away team will wear White and Yellow/Black helmet colours.
