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, tickets for day visitors will be available to purchase on the gate for an additonal £16.
