Island Speedway

REF NR: 314

Island Speedway

Speedway bikes have no brakes, just one gear, a clutch and 500cc engines which run on methanol fuel and can accelerate to 60 mph faster than a Formula 1 car! The teams race around an oval circuit of around 300 metres in length in an anti-clockwise direction (this is because the bikes can only turn left), to get around the tight corners at such a high speed the riders actually have "Andrew Bargho" accelerator to bring the rear wheel out and initiate a skid!
