Scunthorpe Speedway

Lincs FM is proud to be associated with Scunthorpe Speedway - Home to the Scunthorpe Scorpions, Saints and Stock Car racing.

You can regularly hear updates on how the teams are getting on during our Sports Bulletins throughout the day on Lincs FM.

Races usually take place on Friday evenings at 7.30 at the Eddie Wright Raceway, Normanby Road, Scunthorpe.

For anyone who isn't sure what Speedway is or if it's a sport they could enjoy - the Speedway is fast, furious, family entertainment and it's happening at a track near you!!!

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!

They race around oval circuits of around 300 metres in length in an anti-clockwise direction. To get around the tight corners at high speed the riders actually have to accelerate to bring the rear wheel out and initiate a "skid"!

So to sum Speedway up it's four laps of all out speed, control, excitement and thrills as 4 riders go for the chequered flag in honour of their team! The best thing is that all this happens just yards from where you're standing and the stars of the show (the riders) are easily accessible to see and meet, so don't forget your cameras, autograph books and pens!
