THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED AND THE BOOK ONLINE BUTTON HAS BEEN REMOVED NO FURTHER BOOKINGS CAN BE TAKEN

We have arranged a visit to photograph this high-octane motorsport.

 

Our visit will commence with a pre-meeting tour of the pits and track and for those who have never been to speedway before explanations of this one of the most exciting motorsports in the world.

During the meeting we have a reserved table in the clubhouse for our exclusive use and access to the VIP guest area.  While our fee also includes food to be provided on the night – but not drinks.

We will be able to photograph from the VIP guest or public areas and the racing generally presents a fantastic spectacle to photograph.

Each race of four laps consists of four riders at the starting gates racing around an enclosed circuit made up of loose shale. Racers are often just inches apart at high speed careering around near the safety fence. The bikes themselves have no gears, no brakes and accelerate from 0 – 60 in about 3 seconds – faster than a formula one racing car. Colourful kevlars and helmet covers all add to the high-speed spectacle.

The cost of the evening including entry and provision of food is £18 booking in advance is essential and booking will close on the 21 July, ten days before the event.

Booking is essential, there will be no entry on the night, payable by booking online only.
