Speedway And Grass Track Racing

Grass Track is a fast all-action sport with the season usually running from April until November.

In Great Britain the oval tracks are normally on grass with lengths of 400m to 800m. On the Continent, Long Tracks can be used on grass, or sand and can be up to 1000m long. The race consists of several qualifying heats, each lasting four laps of the track leading up to the final.

The Grass Track bikes have capacities of 250, 350 and 500cc in the solo classes and can reach speeds of up to 80 mph on the straights and with no brakes fitted to the machine the racing is both fast and furious. There are three sidecar classes. The continental class has a 500cc single cylinder engine, also in Great Britain there are left and right handed sidecar machines with the engines up to 1000cc. Sidecar races are some of the most exciting in Grass Track sport with the driver and passenger working together to obtain the best grip and speed around the corners.

Grass Track is very much a family sport suitable for all ages and abilities. Boys and girls from as young as six can compete on automatic machines. The ages and capacity classes progress right through to adult status. There are also classes in youth grass track to run motocross machines on a grass track circuit. Youth events are carefully controlled to provide good racing for young competitors.
