How it works
Speedway racing is two teams competing against each other to score the most points. One will be the home team Wight Warriors and the other will be from somewhere else in the UK. Each time has 7 riders, on 500cc motorcycles which have no brakes and only one gear! Fuelled by methanol, these are fast machines with 0-60mph taking around 2 seconds.
Meetings consist of 15 races when 4 riders (2 from each team) compete over 4 laps for points. At 385m this is the longest track in the country.
