SPEEDWAY THRILLS AND SPILLS
If you’ve never witnessed a full-on Speedway race you’re in for a treat. The 500cc methanol-burning single cylinder machines only have one gear and no brakes. Travelling at speeds of up to 80mph on a shale surface the riders powerslide through the turns on full lock, shale spraying out as they try to find grip. It’s a jawdropping spectacle everyone should see at least once – you’ll probably find you’ve become hooked by the end!
Festival campers get in to see the speedway as part of their weekend pass, day visitors can purchase a speedway ticket on the gate for just £10 (£5 for children 10-15yrs)
The Speedway action takes place in the Indian Live Action Arena at 7.30pm.
