Training, Experience & Practice Days

Fancy having a go at speedway yourself?
Then this is the place where you can find out all you need to know about how to get started and get involved.

This page will be updated with additional training schools at other British tracks in due course…

Amateur Motorcycle Speedway Academy

The Amateur Motorcycle Speedway Academy aims to provide excellent speedway schools to students of all standards both male and female. They strive to offer the best speedway training available in a friendly and safe environment.
Whether you’ve never sat on a bike before, are looking for something new or are an experienced speedway rider they can help and have something to offer.
Under the tutelage of Gary O’Hare and Ian Batley, they offer support, instruction and help to allow you to get the most out of speedway. They operate in a safe environment with a fully qualified medic on site at all times and different bike sizes depending on your experience.
If you’re new to speedway, the day is all about you getting to feel the thrill and experience of riding a Speedway bike with no brakes or gears on a real race circuit. They’ll help you understand how to slide the bike and to learn how to handle it whilst remaining in full in control.
Their Experience Days are for people of any age who would like to “Give it a go” or “Live the Dream“. They have regular use of a mini-track and use smaller bikes to help you gain skills and confidence before progressing to a full sized bike and track.
They frequently offer special days such as Ladies Days which are very popular and you can find out about them first by following their Facebook page.
They can also offer Corporate Days and offer discounts for groups of friends.

Scunthorpe Speedway

Scunthorpe Speedway’s 92-metre mini track was built in 2007 and has proven to be an extremely popular addition. It’s size makes it ideal for smaller engine bikes (up to 250cc) and is perfect for introducing new riders to sliding. Riders have progressed from the mini track into all the British leagues and, at least one, has ridden in the World Team Cup whilst the Wayne Carter sessions also provide a great environment and all the necessary equipment for fans of all ages, and from all over the country, to have a speedway experience. The sessions, which need to be booked and paid for in advance can be arranged by texting Richard Hollingsworth on 07832-402167. The cost for riders with their own bikes is £32 and, for those who need to use the club’s bikes and equipment (everything is provided), it is £77. Typically sessions take place every second or third week and more information can be found at www.scunthorpe-speedway.com/?page_id=51
