Speedway Racing at Eastbourne SpeedwayMotor RacingSpeedway 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"!Arlington Stadium, Arlington Road WestHailshamEast SussexBN27 3REUnited Kingdom50.8570253000000.228514100000http://www.visiteastbourne.com/?dms=3&pid=
